Undo skin damage wrought by summer rays with a gentle Aqua Aloe facial at Renew the Spa.
1. De-Stress: Renew the Spa inside The James Royal Palm hotel has the perfect antidote to sun-battered or sensitive skin: The Aqua Aloe Facial uses chamomile and calendula to de-stress the skin, helping hydrate, heal, and correct surface damage. The treatment is $130 for 45 minutes and $190 for 75 minutes. 1545 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786-276-0291
2. Rejuvenate: No treatment better exemplifies aesthetician Lilian Samardzic's expertise than her Signature Facial ($400) at La Fenice Salon & Spa. This customizable facial utilizes a mild acid peel, facial and scalp massage, hydrating masque, and oxygen mask to rejuvenate the skin. 3333 Rice St., Coconut Grove, 305-460-0800
3. Cool Down: The Spa at Equinox's new 50-minute Thermal Ice Facial ($185) starts off with a cool gel application that heats up to 107 degrees. Once fully heated, the mask cools down again and hardens, creating a hot-cold experience that re-mineralizes and tones the skin. Available at all three Equinox locations (South Beach, Aventura, Coral Gables), the treatment is not recommended for those with seafood or iodine allergies.
