Types of Spa Treatments - Indulge in Some Well-Deserved Pampering

When the workload gets piled up and the deadlines never seem to finish, we all need to take some well-deserved "me time" off. Here are five ways to do just that with spa treatments!


Face Treatments

The celebrated Lebanese author and poet, Kahlil Gibran once said that "Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart". Of course, its true but it doesn't hurt to keep your face beautiful does it?
When it comes to face treatments or facials there are many components ranging from exfoliation to steaming, moisturizing, massages and the use of peels and masks. The object of all these treatments is to remove dull and dry skin cells from the surface, increase circulation through massage, eliminate clogged up pores and hydrate the fresh layer of skin. While there are typical treatments such as a "clean up" there are also special treatments that target problem areas like under eye circles and spot removal. You can seek the help of a professional or go on Youtube or Instagram to see DIY treatments by online beauty gurus like Farah Dhukai. Just remember nothing happens overnight, so patience and consistency is the key.


Body Treatments

Your body needs some love and care just like your face. Now there are ample treatments available for body care ranging from body polishes to aquatherapy, body wraps, body polishes and Vichy showers. Now if all of this sounds Greek to you, don't worry, we'll explain.
Aquatherapy is when you soak in a really cool aqua jet tub with water infused with aromatherapy oils. Then there's body polishes and wraps which are basically facials for your body. In this kind of treatment, the body is first scrubbed with ingredients like salt to remove smooth out the skin by removing dead cells; a moisturizer is then applied to hydrate the new skin.
And then finally, it's the Vichy shower which is a basically a very fancy shower! They are usually administered at the end of a body wrap or polish, but they can be provided as an individual treatment as well. You'll lie down on a cushioned table while water from five to seven shower heads is poured into your body. Not only is it relaxing, it also promotes blood circulation.



For most of us, getting a massage means having to beg or bribe someone in the family to give you one, but once in a while make sure you get a professional one, cause honey you deserve it! Preparing for a holiday? All the better, as then you'll be able to get an exotic massage. Take the Maldives for example, the island nation that's a holidaymaker's paradise. When you check in to a holiday resort and spa in Maldives the likes of Adaaran Club Rannalhi you will be pampered like a prince or princess with a range of luxurious massage treatments of your choice. From rejuvenating Ayurvedic massages to exhilarating Thai massages- you name it, they massage it!


Nail Treatments

Yes, nail treatments, because "nails without a little sparkle is like cake without frosting" and we do need frosting don't we? Even if you don't like sparkles, you can get yourself a good nail treatment and maybe a French manicure as well. Usually, salons offer nail treatments in addition to mani's and pedi's and are much cheaper too, but if you want some special love given to your nails, hit the spa. Sure, it might cost you a tooth and nail (excuse the pun there), but what does that compare to seeing your poor chipped, breakable nails treated and shining so happily?


Hair Removal

If you're the kind of person who believes in letting nature takes its course and let it grow, then this treatment is not for you. But if you're the type who gets uncomfortable by seeing even just two unwanted hairs and feel like a gorilla, do read on. When it comes to hair removal there are two ways of getting it done safely and smoothly and that's sugaring and waxing. They might be a little bit similar but it's not. Waxing, the most traditional hair removal technique at spas, uses, yes you guessed it, wax to remove the hair while in sugaring a paste of sticky sugar is used.
