Let's Go Muddin' - Spa-Style

Bust of Cleopatra
Today is National Mud Pack Day - the perfect excuse to go to the spa! Mud packs (and facials) have been popular since Cleopatra’s time. This Egyptian pharaoh was considered to have been the most beautiful woman during her lifetime and for centuries after her death. Her beauty rituals included milk baths, sea salt facials and body scrubs, and a grape facial with a rose-water rinse.

Take some time out to celebrate the day at one of our two outstanding resort spas and experience pampering at its most luxurious. Mud packs, and all facials, are great for supple skin and provide anti-oxidants that boost skin collagen and increase cell turnover.

The Spa at French Lick offers a dozen facial treatments including those that calm and clarify the skin along with specialties such as the Hydra Facial, Hungarian Facial and the Gentlemen’s Facial. And don’t forget body wraps, scrubs and baths are also great ways to cleanse, smooth and renew your skin. Plus, we offer a Signature Pluto Bath that has been available at the hotel since the 1920s.

The Spa at West Baden has its own serene series of facial offerings that include a Brightening Facial, Ossential Stimulator Facial and a Microdermabrasion Facial. Body treatments include a Scrumptious Body Scrub and a Moroccan Rhassoul Clay Wrap – much more exquisite than mud.
