As we settle into summer, swimsuits, trunks, shorts and dresses make their way to the front of our closets. But our skin, which has spent much of the year hibernating, may need a little TLC before it is ready for its close-up.

One of the best things you can do to prepare your body for the warm weather is to feed it. Literally.

Some of the most effective treatments around are all-natural and utilize ingredients you could easily find on the spa lunch menu. Read on to see what does a body good and which local spas do it best.

Rancho Bernardo Inn
The Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn hangs its hat on its “Made Fresh Daily” concept, which focuses on seasonal ingredients in limited-edition packages that highlight what’s best right now. Now through August, enjoy a Papaya Lime Punch treatment that includes a lime scrub, papaya and cayenne wrap, and a coconut verbena massage. Served with a tropical cocktail, you are sent home with a special “spa at home” body treat recipe to continue the spa experience on your own time.
