With various services offered by spas, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, and sometimes confused, over which one best suits you.
Sure, you might want to try out different treatments from time to time, but for the summer season, there are a few pampering rituals you wouldn’t want to miss. You can even make these your must-have treatments during the hottest time of the year.
What easily come to mind when we think of summer are beaches and bikinis. Of course, some are quite anxious over the thought of flaunting their bodies under the summer sun.
Fortunately, there are body wraps to fast-track your way to have that beach bod.
Seaweed and mud body wraps are a great way to detoxify, smoothen the skin and, according to some, even trim a few inches off your waistline. Body wraps help expel heat, bloating and toxins from the body, leaving the skin supple and the body slimmer-looking.
Face the sun
Because of the sun’s heat, it is essential to refresh and rejuvenate your complexion with light exfoliating masks and facial procedures. They can liven up dull skin, and can also help soften surface lines with dewy hydration.
However, it is not recommended to undergo chemical peels and deep exfoliation, as these may be harmful to the skin, and may even cause breakouts.
You may also want to consider hydrating facials to reduce redness from sunburn.
Hair can be damaged from chlorine, seawater and too much sun exposure. You can have it treated with a protective coating before you dive into the water. And don’t forget to have it treated again after your summer sojourn to bring back luster to your dull, sun-damaged hair.
Best foot forward
Sandals and flip-flops are definitely in every summer, so before stepping out to welcome the season, be sure you’ve rid your feet of bunions caused by months of wearing shoes. It is also best to have your feet checked for ingrown toenails. And for an added chic look, you might also want to sport an eye-catching nail polish to give a splash of color to your feet.
You can opt for a refreshing foot scrub or a paraffin treatment to get you going. Or another foot spa may be in order after a long walk on the beach, to remove the sand embedded on your toenails, and to soothe and relax your tired feet.
Summer is really meant to be enjoyed to the fullest. With these spa treatments, you’ll be set to bask under the sun while looking your best. It’s not really that complicated—all it takes is one rejuvenating trip to your favorite spa.
