Your skin is the largest organ of the body, so it’s essential that you take proper care of it. Spending a day at the spa or going for revitalising beauty treatments is not only good for your skin but also beneficial for your wellbeing.
By visiting a spa every now and then, you can rejuvenate and recharge your body, mind, and soul. Here are our list of top spa treatments to make you feel brand new:
The pressures of a high-stress lifestyle can leave you with dry and dull skin. Facials have enormous benefits to the skin, both in the short and long term. Not all facials are created equal – the treatments differ depending on what your biggest concern is – whether it’s working to reduce or prevent wrinkles, battling acne scars, fighting damage from skin exposure, or simply needing extra moisture. Most facials include cleansing, exfoliation, a massage to promote lymphatic drainage, and a moisturising mask. Getting regular facials can leave your skin looking bright, clear, rejuvenated. Who wouldn’t want their skin to glow with the light of a thousand moons?
The buildup of dead skin cells can leave skin looking dry, rough, and dull. The best way to get rid of it is by getting a body exfoliation treatment. Body exfoliation aims to shed skin cells and generate new ones, leaving you looking refreshed and more youthful. The great thing about body scrubs is that you can enjoy a wide range of treatments without the worry of breaking out since the body is usually less sensitive than the face. Every spa will have different scrubs, but it usually consists of sea salt, an essential oil, and aromatics. It is rubbed and massaged across and into your skin and is then rinsed away to reveal a smooth layer of fresh, clean and soft skin.
Manicures and pedicures
There’s no better pick-me-up than a manicure or pedicure. Manicures and pedicures do more than leaving our toes looking pretty and polished, but it also nourishes our overworked hands and feet. A manicure and pedicure will generally consist of a soak, a scrub, a nail clip and shape, a moisturising treatment, and a coat of nail polish. This treatment can increase circulation, moisturise your hands and feet, keep your nails clean and healthy, and keep those pesky cuticles intact.
Stepping on seaweed at the beach is a very unpleasant feeling, but this slippery seaplant has many wonders for your skin. A seaweed wrap is usually made by mixing seaweed with hot water and other soothing ingredients. This mixture makes a thick paste, which can be spread over your entire body. (Sounds much nicer than wrapping your body with strings of seaweed).
You’re usually then wrapped in a heated towel or special blanket while the paste soaks into your skin. Seaweed is high in essential minerals like iodine, magnesium, potassium and selenium. These elements will help to detoxify your body, tone your skin, and reduce cellulite.
