The Bee Venom Mask The bee venom mask has been cre­at­ing a buzz since it was re­cently re­vealed to be a favourite of the Duchess of Cam­bridge. De­scribed as a nat­u­ral al­ter­na­tive to Bo­tox in­jec­tions, the treat­ment works to con­trol the fa­cial mus­cles, promis­ing a sub­tle lift­ing ef­fect as well as firm­ing of the skin. Fine lines and wrin­kles will be less no­tice­able and dry skin will be soothed and re­stored. www.heav­en­skin­care.com. Price £352 The Caviar Fa­cial Not just an in­dul­gent treat for the taste buds, caviar is now a key in­gre­di­ent in many fa­cials and skin prod­ucts. Rich in pep­tides, amino acids, vi­ta­mins and min­er­als, it claims to re­gen­er­ate tired and dull skin leav­ing the com­plex­ion bright and plumped. A num­ber of skin­care brands add in extracts of caviar to their prod­ucts but for ul­ti­mate in­dul­gence, try a pure caviar fa­cial which in­cludes a mask cre­ated with fresh cos­metic caviar. www.na­tali­yarobin­son.co.uk. Price £300 The Sea­weed Bath Sea­weed has long been known for its health ben­e­fits. Un­wind and re­lax in a hot bath of fresh, hand har­vested sea­weed from the He­bridean coast. In­fused with sea salts con­tain­ing over 85 nat­u­ral trace min­er­als, the bath claims to be nat­u­rally heal­ing, mois­tur­is­ing and anti-ageing with anti-cel­lulite prop­er­ties. The bath can be cou­pled with a sea­weed wrap for ul­ti­mate skin hy­dra­tion, toxin re­moval and a boost of en­ergy. www.ishga.co.uk. Prices from £87

The 24-Carat Gold Fa­cial It is said that Cleopa­tra's beauty was the re­sult of sleep­ing in a gold mask night af­ter night and it seems the rit­ual has found it­self a cult fol­low­ing in mod­ern times. The treat­ment in­volves flakes of gold leaf be­ing placed onto the face be­fore be­ing mas­saged in. The fa­cial, a firm favourite with celebri­ties, prom­ises to lift and firm whilst re­duc­ing fine lines and wrin­kles leav­ing you with, well, a golden glow. www.umouni­verse.com. Prices from £150 The Plan­ets Promis­ing the gift of time and space this series of treat­ments from Lush aims not only to re­lax your body but also to treat your mind. Per­haps one for the neo-hip­pies, a 90 minute full body mas­sage is fol­lowed by a 60 minute lift­ing fa­cial and a 30 minute hand and arm mas­sage which in­cludes a palm read­ing de­signed to iden­tify stresses and wor­ries and al­low you to let go of your past. Set to a spe­cially com­posed sound­track, this is def­i­nitely an out of this world ex­pe­ri­ence. www.lush.com. Price £285
