We all know that time at a spa will recharge our batteries to give us the energy we need for our increasingly hectic lives. But what if we don't have the time or means to visit as often as we need? The great news is that with very little time or investment the healing powers of water can be harnessed in the luxury of your own home.
For each wellness
goal you may have there is a luxury spa solution
and a home spa alternative:
Wellness Goal - Boost circulation to increase delivery of nutrients and oxygen to every cell
the thermal suite- saunas and steam rooms boost wellness, aid sleep, open pores and bring toxins to the skin's surface, whereas cold experiences such as drench showers and ice fountains help increase immune function, reduce inflammation and alternating hot and cold has many health benefits including relief from fatigue and aiding circulation.
supercharge your cleansing routine by using a warm flannel to remove facial cleanser then splash with ice cold water to tighten pores and firm the skin. My top tip for improving the look of cellulite is to blast thighs with ice-cold water at the end of your morning shower- wakes me up a treat every time!
Wellness Goal: Detoxification and absorption of vital minerals
mud-wrap or mud rasul ritual. Spa mud treatments are popular for their detoxifying properties with the added benefit of leaving skin glowing and well nourished.
turn your bath into a Dead Sea float. We don't always get all the minerals we need from our diets through modern farming methods and over-processed foods, but a great relaxing way to boost mineral intake is to simply throw a couple of handfuls of Dead Sea salts in your bath. The skin is able to absorb the precious minerals including calcium, magnesium and bromide to name but a few. I love Heavenly Hydration Dead Sea bath salts by Spa Find. The 100% natural sea salts relieve aching joints and muscles. You will find your skin feels wonderfully smooth as there is a natural exfoliating action and dry skin is nourished. Rub in some body oil while your skin is still damp for super silky skin. Due to the detoxifying effects of the salts, be sure to drink plenty of water and to have plenty of rest after your bath.
Wellness Goal: Soothe aching muscles and aid relaxation
massage by a skilled and experienced therapist can release feel good endorphins, knead away tensions and help with any number of injuries.
