    HOW TO PRESERVE A SAND DOLLARIt’s always special to find a Sand Dollar at low tide. The Native Americans who first settled the area used Sand Dollars for decorative wear. Here’s a tip from our Naturalist on preserving a Sand Dollar. Soak the shells overnight in a solution of one part bleach and three parts water. Carefully, rinse off the shell and place on a paper towel to dry. Protect the shell from moisture with three to four coats of spray varnish. A safe recipe for kids is to use a mixture of white liquid school glue, water and brush on. Kids ask your parents to help.

    SKINCARE TIPS FROM THE SPA1. Spring clean your skin care shelf – When

    in doubt, toss it out. Go through your cosmetics, products, and sunscreens, and toss the things that have been around a little too long. Remember this rule of thumb: Anything you apply near the lips or eyes should be tossed after a year. Also, throw your dingy makeup bag in the washer. If it can’t be laundered, clean with an antibacterial cleanser.

    2. Lighten Up-Springtime generally means lighter make-up. Switching to lighter cleansers will lightly grab away make-up and hydrate spring skin, without clogging pores or leaving a sticky residue, which can lead to unwanted breakouts.

    3. Buff away winter skin – Bring out its brightness by exfoliating a little more in the spring. In the winter, when your skin is drier and more sensitive, it’s best to exfoliate just once a week. But in the spring, exfoliation removes old layers of skin and helps topical treatments absorb into the skin better.

    4. Trade in the cream for a lotion – Moisturizer is crucial to any skincare routine, but using heavy creams in the spring can actually cause annoying breakouts. In the spring, switch from very heavy, hydrating moisturizer and oil-based products to lighter formulations, like a hydrating serum.

    5. Time to up your SPF – Apply every morning, and reapply every two hours. If you get wet, apply every hour. The season’s only just beginning, but UVA and UVB filters can affect your skin through glass and clouds too.

    FULL MOON MEDITATION**Experience meditation like never before under the gentle glow of a full moon with the sounds of the Atlantic Ocean as backdrop. The intense spiritual energy of the moon combined with fresh coastal breeze will fill you with peace and cleanse the mind, releasing negativity to create space for new intentions. Guided classes occur at the peak of the full moon’s brightness and combine meditative contemplation and Yoga Nidra suitable for all levels. Weather permitting, indoors if inclement. Tuesday, April 7 at 8:30 p.m. $45 per guest

    CUSTOM SALT SCRUB BLENDING CLASS

    Visit The Spa for a custom salt scrub blending class and enjoy a complimentary sample personalized to your specific needs. Salt scrubs combine the therapeutic properties of essential oils and the exfoliating benefits of salt. Daily in the Spa Shop, 12:30 p.m.

  • Business to Beach and BackGentlemen will appreciate the laid back coastal style of Southern Tide’s Intercoastal Pant. The UPF 50+

    performance fabric is comfortable for a day on the golf course. The modern fit is comfortable, classic, yet stylish

    enough for dinner in Salt, drinks in The Lobby Bar or back to business. Top off your look with a Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island exclusive: Southern Tide’s baseball cap with the island’s latitude

    AMELIA ISLAND FLORIDA

    THE HISTORY OF COQUINACoquina is the Spanish word for the rock formed by combining salt water, sea shells, and dune sand. During Amelia Island’s Spanish Colonial period, settlers used coquina to form walls and roads in settlements along Florida's Atlantic Coast. Even today, coquina-walled homes host neighbors and friends for festive nights spent under the stars. Coquina blends the classic elements of Amelia Island: the sand, the sea, and our unique heritage.
