10 Wonderful spa treatments you absolutely need to try
When you treat yourself to a day of pampering at the spa, what treatments do you go for? There are a lot of different spa treatments available, so to help you choose, here are some of the treatments that you will have heard of and some you probably won’t, but all are worth a try.
1. Mud bath
It’s probably been a while since you played in the mud, but give it a go at a spa; it’s great! Lay back and relax in a mud bath and it will leave your skin feeling amazingly soft.
2. Deep tissue massage
This is a special kind of massage designed to relive deep muscle tension. They will leave you feeling free and loose, but don’t try them if you have very sensitive skin or a low tolerance of pain!
This treatment will give your face a whole new lease of life and leave you with younger, fresher looking skin. It’s a type of deep exfoliation that massages your face with tiny micro crystals.
Not for the squeamish, but acupuncture is the centuries old practice of penetrating the skin with needles at specific points in the body. It is used to de-stress you and it can also reduce pain and inflammation too.
5. Seaweed wrap
Get a relaxing seaweed wrap and it is said to remove toxins from your body and help you lose weight too. They are a great way to unwind and you’ll look and feel great!
6. Keratin treatment
Keratin is a natural substance that is found in your hair and keratin treatment replaces the keratin that is lost through styling and too much heat. It’s a great way to get smooth, glossy hair and it completely gets rid of any frizz and dryness.
You might feel a bit of a fool, sitting with gunk all over your face for twenty minutes, but the effect is amazing. You won’t believe how smooth and soft your face feels after a facial.
Give your feet a treat while you’re in the spa with a full pedicure. They get some pretty rough treatment from those shoes and the pounding they get every day, so give them a break with a pedicure, and they will feel a whole lot better.
9. Teeth whitening
Home treatments and whitening toothpaste can only do so much, and you can’t beat a professional tooth whitening session to get a real gleam back in your smile. A tooth whitening session is especially worthwhile for special occasions, when you know there will be lots of photographs being taken, like a wedding.
10. Fish therapy
For baby smooth feet, let some fish nibble away at the dead skin! The little nibblers are called garra rufa and they don’t hurt, but they do gently remove all the dead skin from your feet and toes.
