Summer means spending time getting ready to look fabulous on a beach (or river). These San Antonio spa treatments will leave you looking effortlessly chic with glowing skin, perfectly manicured nails, and an air of calm about you. Read on for a guide to the city's top spas to treat yourself this summer.

For facials
Skin Rejuvenation Clinique concentrates on giving you radiating, beautiful skin. The entire place is a win for the skin. Antioxidant treatments and hydration masks are the best bet to get your glow on. Try the signature rejuvenation facial ($67 for one hour), which softens and soothes to help with collagen syntheses and lymphatic drainage. Just don’t forget the sunscreen after this glorious treatment.

For relaxation
Spend the entire day relaxing at Lantana Spa at the JW Marriott. Splurge on a treatment and you get entry to all the spa amenities for the day. We went with the organic herbal aromatherapy massage ($145 for 50 minutes) for this particular visit. After, we enjoyed the private pool, sauna, steam room, hot tub, and the inhalation room. And when you arrive, you're presented with a red string bracelet meant to release worry and stress, a much-needed bonus.

For detoxing
Mokara Spa has a custom fragrance oil that is worth the trip alone. Try the rebalancing thermal mud wrap (70 minutes, $165) that detoxes and cleanses your whole body inside and out. You can get a spray tan after the treatment, and they too have amazing sanctuary lounges and amenities you can enjoy all day long.

For mani/pedis
Woodhouse Day Spa, with multiple locations around town, will get those fingers and toes in line with a color to pop at the beach and that sparkle you need for the fireworks. Tranquil comes to mind when visiting this spa for its signature pedicure ($95) and manicure ($65) offering. Both treatments promise to hydrate, increase circulation, and nourish your skin. The party next to us chose an agave nectar manicure — we’re trying that next.

For a day with friends
Midtown greatness is achieved with Folawns, which has fantastic packages so you can spend the day getting all the things you could ever want with a group of your closest friends. There’s the ultimate escape package that's screaming you and your gal pals' names, featuring a 90-minute facial, 90-minute massage, and spa manicure and pedicure for $313. There are a ton of other customized options so you’re treated like the royal queens you are.
