HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SPA DAY
TAKE YOUR TREATMENT TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH THESE 6 DOS AND DON’TS
Do arrive at the spa at least 30 minutes early so you have ample time to settle in, sip a calming cup of tea or even have a 10-minute session in the sauna or steam room (if these facilities are available) ahead of your treatment.
Do communicate with your therapist, especially if you feel pain or discomfort from the massage pressure. A spa session is meant to relax and soothe tense muscles, not torture them!
Do drink plenty of water before and after your treatment to ensure you are well hydrated and that toxins are flushed out of your body.
Don’t shave, wax or exfoliate your skin up to 48 hours before your spa session to avoid irritating sensitised skin.
Don’t have a heavy meal up to two hours before your treatment to avoid feeling uncomfortable on the massage table.
Don’t shower or wash your face right after a massage or facial—you want to give your skin some time to absorb the benefits of the ingredients that have been carefully applied.
