Rose Quartz Facial

Where to experience it: Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa (www.sanctuaryoncamelback.com), near Scottsdale, Arizona.

What it is: During the 90-minute Sanctuary Luxury Facial, smooth rose quartz crystals (which have been “energized” by the power of the sun, then cooled on ice to 40–45 degrees F) are rolled over the face. According to Sanctuary Spa staffers, minerals in the stones soothe skin irritation and stimulate lymphatic flow, thus reducing puffiness—while the crystals’ cool temperature calms inflammation.

Best for: New Age believers.
