Like peeling off your socks and shoes off at the end of a long day is said to rival throwing non-ball objects at people for the top of the list of awesome things, taking off your makeup at the end of the day and freeing your skin from its burdens can leave you feeling fresher than sheets on laundry day. Get rid of dead skin cells and that last layer of makeup that just clings no matter what with Nimue Deep Cleanse Facial with either a Swedish or Aromatherapy back & neck massage at Iconic Beauty for R152.
Even though sinking into a hot bath or scrubbing down in the shower can give you that fresh, clean feeling, your skin can be clingier than a new puppy. Dead skin-cells just refuse to move on and they can leave your skin rougher than a worn carpet and duller than a beige pantsuit. The Nimue Deep Cleanse facial uses technology more advanced than next year’s hover car to give your skin a new lease on life. The highly trained therapists know their way around the brow and their expert techniques and the sophisticated treatment can rejuvenate your skin, leaving it softer than a toddlers first hair and smoother than a playboy’s pickup line.
Once you’re the proud owner of a New Face™, avoid the mirrors so you don’t become entranced by your own reflection and kick back while you’re treated to either a Swedish or Aromatherapy back and neck massage. Most people turn to Swedish massage when mutinous muscles threaten to throw their good juju straight off whack with their spasms, and for good reason. The deep (or not so deep) pressure massage is a pro when it comes to driving out even the sneakiest of stresses and melting them away like butter on a hot sidewalk. The alternative is to go alternative with the aromatherapy massage. Using essential oils to rejuvenate the mind and energise the body, you’re surrounded by soothing scents that bring out happy memories while the highly trained therapist uses a combination of long and slow strokes and kneading pressure to set free strained backs and shoulders from the tension-induced prisons.
Whichever muscle-manipulation technique you go for, an afternoon in the more-than-capable hands of Iconic Beauty’s therapists is enough to have you wishing you never had to leave.
