Ahh day spas. Kid you not, if I lived in one, I’d never ever leave the house. Worries? What worries? I’d have stress massaged right out of my bones.
For me, money saved up each month doesn’t go to beauty products, clothes or bags. Oh yes I hear you gasping hard there. It’s true. I save my money for at least one spa treatment a month. As it can be quite expensive to go for facials and massages in Australia, I tend to alternate each treatment per month. It gives me something to look forward to each month.
I’ve tried just about all kinds of spa treatments ever since I discovered “heaven” But there are 5 that I keep going back to. If you’re thinking about trying out day spas, these are good options to consider.
Facials in day spas aren’t really the kind of facials you would expect at a beauty salon. Most day spas will not do blackhead extractions or use high-strength ingredients on your skin. But what you can expect is a good cleansing and more importantly, a great facial, neck and shoulder massage.
2. Body Massage
Back massages are my absolute favourite. Especially if they put hot stones and whatnots on me. When it comes to the legs, not so much because I’m incredibly ticklish. Touch my inner thighs and I’d jump off the massage table.
Even men go for a good wrap!
3. Body Scrub and Wrap
You’ll have to be in disposable knickers for this one. The therapist will scrub you from neck to toes and then wrap you firmly in whatever it is they use to wrap you with. The wrap is sightly uncomfortable at first, but once it’s off; it’s like new skin comes up and says hello.
4. Hand Massage
This usually comes as part of a spa package, not so much on its own (unless you request for one). You can have a relaxing hand massage on one hand, while sipping Mai Tais on the other. Bliss.
I used to be quite afraid of this because I have super ticklish feet, but once I got used to it, oh it’s good. Especially when they massage your feet with body lotion after a good scrub … oh mama!
Man, writing this post sure wasn’t easy, especially when I should very well be at a spa instead of in front of the damn computer. But really, if you can, do try to schedule a day a month for yourself to relax at a day spa. It’s something you can look forward to. I always say that the best person to treat yourself is you
Have you been to a day spa? Which is your favourite? Do let me know because I’m game on trying something new!
