Ragdale Hall's Top Tips for the Summer and Our Favourite Must Haves

Body Beautiful

We recommend you exfoliate the face and body twice a week to eliminate dead skin, helping to leave your skin silky smooth. It also
promotes a deeper, long lasting tan this summer. It's essential to moisturise daily to protect and prepare the skin throughout this season.
Hitting the beach on the first day can be worrisome for the English Rose. However, we offer a wide range of professional treatments to prepare to bare your silhouette this summer.

We Recommend:

Facial Skincare for Radiance

You don't need the sunshine to have a healthy glow but it is essential to thoroughly cleanse, tone and moisturise to continuously hydrate
the skin. The key to reducing sun damage is to use a day cream with nothing less than 30SPF, followed by a strict routine in the evening, which uses products rich in antioxidants to repair your sun kissed skin.

We Recommend:

Hydrating Hand and Refreshing Foot Therapies

If you've been hiding your feet in boots and hands in spring-cleaning marigolds until now, it's time for the big reveal! Your nails are made of keratin, the same as your hair. Although we tend to condition our hair every time we wash it, we fail to do so with our hands and feet – they're crying out for tender loving care. It's vital to put back essential nutrients and minerals by using a moisturiser containing sun protection. This will minimise sun damage, which can cause age spots. Have healthy and glamorous nails this summer.

Must Have Holistic Heaven

Banish stress and look forward to the holiday season. Holidays are for making unforgettable memories. However, it's not always easy to wind down. Aromatherapy is the secret. By burning tranquil essential oils such as lavender, sandalwood and myrrh at home, you'll de-stress and rebalance the mind and body. Peppermint, sage and citrus oils will awake the senses and cleanse the mind. Yoga and Pilates are perfect to help you ease down ready for your break.

We Recommend:

Must Have Fitness Fanatics

It's essential to stretch before and after fitness, and to relax and wind down from an energetic class or session at the gym. At Ragdale Hall, we offer a wide range of treatments to help ease tension, improve posture, and treat aches and pains.
