Before beaches were invented, bodies would colour themselves sunflower-yellow to pair up perfectly with the abundant green meadows. Ditch the yellows of yonder and salute the beach with today’s Groupon: a full body exfoliation and tan for R249 at Senspa on Bedford Piazza.
Along with the five cents coin and live statues at a Roman banquet, bodies secretly long to be a perfect shade of bronze. However, though lazing about in the sunshine all day is nice, any self-respecting health fanatic will tell you that too much sun-juice is bad for you. Enter Senspa on Bedford Piazza. Skilled in the art of butterscotching up bodies faster than a kid would lose his mind in a candy store, the professional bronzers will have you summer-ready in an instant. A tranquil and calm studio, treatments are administered with the utmost professionalism in a comfortable atmosphere.
Where some tanning procedures could leave you closely resembling an orange’s second cousin, Senspa’s perfectly bronzed superheroes take a no-nonsense approach to tanning, leaving clients just as perfectly- tinted. Using quality products, state-of-the-art equipment and armed with their enormous amounts of skill, bodies will be evenly tanned in just the right way. The session begins with a full body exfoliation, working off all dead skin cells, then proceeds to smooth on a tan that will last five to seven days. Perfect for saying “take a hike” to winter, summer will welcome you with open arms.
Body Fact: A ritual that most specialists negate, some swear by tanning with poached eggs spread all over their bodies then creeping under a bookshelf when coloured the right shade.
