Sept. 22 skin care event and autumn specials promote health and beauty

Spa-goers who want to look their best can choose from a number of special events at The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg this fall. On Sept. 22, “Happy Hour at the Spa” includes one 30-minute interactive session with a Skin Authority® expert, who will explain the benefits of antioxidants, peptides and resurfacing and offer participants the chance to win a Skin Authority facial valued at $135, and a 30-minute skin care service designed to help women learn the latest skin care techniques to brighten skin tone, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, restore moisture and elasticity and protect against sun damage.

Tickets for the Happy Hour are $35 per person and may be applied toward the purchase of any Skin Authority product purchased during the event. Appointments begin on the half hour from 4 to 7 p.m.

Also during the month of September, two spa specials are offered Monday through Friday. Guests can enjoy a total spa experience in just one hour with a 30-minute classic massage and a 30-minute classic facial for only $112.
