It’s not just hot showers, cold weather and the menthol in moisturiser that can leave your skin dryer than a dehydrated peach in the Sahara. Given that skin cells are the body’s only protection from the rest of the world, they can worry about leaving the more delicate parts of you exposed to harsh things like sunshine. This separation anxiety can often lead to the dead cells clinging desperately to your skin and blocking any moisture and oxygen that would otherwise be coming through. The Radiance Facial is perfect for giving clingy cells the boot and treating the damage caused by sun, stress and lack of sleep. Good for a quick rejuvenation, the Radiance facial ensures brighter skin, smoother texture and the glorious return of your own natural radiance.
Alternatively, with hands more dexterous than a fistful of noodles, therapists will massage and manipulate your delicate scalp with Indian head massage methods, working tensions out of your head and into the immediate atmosphere. Working on both physical and psychological levels, their flexible fingers will apply ancient techniques to relieve pressure and improve blood flow to the head and neck, increasing the distribution of nutrients and encouraging healing throughout your form. Feeling better than when the vending machine gives you two things instead of one, the experience will pull your head out of the clouds and keep it firmly attached to your body.
Spa Fact: A massage therapist in the 1960’s invented a controversial new treatment while travelling through Scotland – The Jasmine Shrapnel Scrub – which combines powdered shrapnel from the second World War and the leaves of the jasmine flower to create a facial-mask which she claims will give the client enhanced strength and agility for up to a week after use.
