While stress balls or happy hours with the girls help lessen stress, nothing cures it better than a spa day.

If you’re going to splurge going to a spa anyways, why not go to an amazing spa?

I found my little oasis of a spa just minutes outside of Los Angeles at the Four Seasons Luxury Hotel and Resort in Westlake Village. Located just 40 miles from West Los Angeles, The Spa at the Four Seasons in Westlake Village boasts to be the biggest of all Four Seasons at 40,000 sq ft.

The spa features a gorgeous Asian inspired décor that exudes zen at every corner, including a gorgeous Chinese footbridge, onyx-accented ceilings, bamboo floors, and private terraces for the 28 available treatment rooms. There is also a gorgeous pagoda by a beautiful lake, and little bunnies that roam free on the property! There are also four luxury suites inside the spa with a private patio that’s perfect for lunch and an enclosed outdoor hot tub. It’s perfect for a girl-spa-day-out or a romantic date with a special someone! The Spa’s shower facilities are also stocked with one of my favorite brands, L’occitane!

The Spa is also the exclusive home to its signature treatment, the new DNA Growth Factor Exfoliating Facial that features the new DNA EGF Renewal skincare line by renowned dermatologist, Ronald L. Moy, MD, FAAD. The facial features a thorough deep cleanse, a chemical exfoliation using a special peel formulated with amino acids and alpha-hydroxy acids, a manual extraction step, a treatment mask infused with professional strength growth factor from Iceland that’s paired with DNA repair enzymes, and a hydrating blast of moisturizer chosen specifically for the your skin.

The highly trained and extremely friendly estheticians consult with you over your current skincare routine, your skin type, your skin sensitivities, as well as any concerns you have about the skin. My esthetician, Marti Wright, took extra care monitoring my skin’s reaction with the exfoliating peel since my skin is prone to sensitivity. Her touch was so light, even during the extraction process I pretty much slept throughout the entire facial. After the facial, Marti gave recommendations to my skincare routine to keep my skin in tip top shape as well as a genuine hug!

Every time I go to The Spa at Four Seasons in Westlake Village, my body instantly relaxes. Even though it’s less than an hour away, the entire atmosphere is so far removed from the congested and smog-filled world I live in. Everyone who has been there wishes we could just live in the spa and be beautiful, fresh, and zen everyday! There are also wild rabbits roaming the facility!

If you’re in the Los Angeles area or are coming through for vacation, definitely check out the Four Seasons in Westlake Village. The signature DNA Growth Factor Exfoliating Facial costs $180 for a 50 minute session, and $250 for an 80 minute session. Since it’s the holidays, what can be a better gift than a refreshing spa day?
