It’s February and that means love is in the air. Between romantic dates and champagne…
There’s nothing quite as relaxing as a deep tissue massage, with a bit of aromatherapy to stimulate the senses. But while the basic massage can still work wonders, adding on a few spa extras, like different oils, scents, techniques, and treatments, can further enhance your overall experience. Here are 5 spa extras to add to treatments that will be well worth the price tag. You’ll walk away feeling rejuvenated and energized.
A Back Facial
Who says facials can only be on the face? Turns out, a back facial can be great for hydrating the skin, reducing blemishes, and keeping skin nice and taut. For those who work out and sweat in the heat (those sticky, sports bras aren’t great for the backside!), or who love wearing backless dresses in the summer, this treatment is perfect for the warmer weather. Enjoy as a full treatment or add-on to a facial package.
Nail Service Add-Ons
Specifically, the “paraffin” or “spa” manicure and pedicure add-on, as well as a no-chip. Cutting cuticles and filing do the job, but you deserve to be pampered in your chair! Take a couple more minutes and shell out a little extra cash, and you’ll shine and buff nails to perfection. What’s more, the added lotions, butters, and scrubs will moisten skins to match those freshly painted nails. The no-chip will guarantee the polish lasts longer (up to 2 weeks even), so the whole service will be well worth the price.
If you wake up with dark eye circles, listen up. Unfortunately, darkness under the eyes can be more prevalent in some ethnicities and age groups—and as you get older, those bags continue to drop and deepen. A hydrating eye spa treatment can help alleviate fine lines and rough, dry skin by adding moisture. Plus, the use of fresh fruits, like papaya and pineapple, as well as yam (which have anti-aging properties), will create a fresh glow.
Love the smell of eucalyptus, sandalwood, peppermint, or lavender? Using aromatherapy oils for spa treatments can help relax the mind and body and work through the kinks in a deeper, more holistic fashion. For a slight upcharge to the basic massage, these oils and scents both improve the spa experience and help heal the body from the inside-and-out.
If you’re going to wax down there, you might as well go all the way and get the royal treatment. Splurging on a Brazilian wax spa service can keep you protected from any DIY mishaps from kits (which can be tricky to pull off). If you’re looking for that bare look, getting a professional wax is definitely the way to go.
