As glamorous young wizard Emma Watson demonstrated recently when she graced the glossy magazines sporting a trendy new crop cut, sometimes it’s good to change the image you project to the world.
Such transformations don’t need to be the preserve of the stars. Once in a while it does all of us good to reinvent ourselves and start afresh. And what more pleasant way to plan your “new look” than by leaving all your troubles and your cares behind at home and treating yourself to a relaxing spa weekend break…
By planning carefully and booking ahead, you can take full advantage of every minute you spend at one of the country’s leading health resorts, benefiting from as many as possible of the exciting range of beauty treatments and activities on offer at today’s state-of-the-art spas.
For a complete face and body makeover and the ultimate new look, you could start your spa break with a body treatment – such as the Decleor Refining Hip and Thigh Contour. Specifically designed to target troublesome areas (thighs, hips, bottom and stomach etc), it draws on the revolutionary cellulite-blitzing properties of the Decleor contour range.
This exclusive cocktail of eight essential oils is clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of orange peel and relieve water retention. It redefines the contours of the body, leaving your skin softer, looking smoother and feeling sculpted.
Next stop, your face! And at the top UK spas, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to indulgent, nurturing facial treatments – like the Elemis Tri Enzyme Resurfacing Facial. This ground-breaking anti-ageing facial is the stuff that dreams are made of, instantly resurfacing and smoothing your skin, helping it to look younger.
Clinically proven to visibly resurface your skin by up to 70 per cent and increase its smoothness by up to 32 per cent after just one application, this unique treatment targets blemishes, uneven skin tone, fine lines and superficial scarring.
Using pioneering precision layering of three targeted enzyme serums, the treatment safely and effectively removes the thickening layer of the epidermis, leaving skin fabulously smooth and radiant beneath, and bringing a renewed level of evenness and clarity to the complexion. It’ll get your new look off to a flying start.
Now your hands and nails… And a Leighton Denny Luxury Crystal Hand Therapy is just what they need to keeping them looking and feeling fabulous.
You won’t recognise your own hands after this luxury treatment, which helps to combat the signs of premature ageing, improves skin tone and stimulates your circulation. The result: hands and nails that the “new you” can be proud of.
And for those finishing touches? A half-hour make-up application session using either Clarins or Christian Dior products will leave you looking a million dollars. Finally, if you want to really ring the changes during your pampering weekend, you can round off your spa transformation by booking yourself in for weaved highlights and a restyle.
So if you’re in the mood for change, start planning your spa weekend break now and get ready to reinvent yourself… And, of course, once your exciting new look is complete, it’s the perfect opportunity to hold an impromptu party for friends and family so they can admire the fabulous new you!
