As we start to feel the benefits of the warmer weather, summer looks to be fast approaching meaning that you will soon be able to ditch your winter wardrobe for awhile in favour of your summer frocks.
It’s important to us that we feel our best, however amongst work and other daily activities keeping us busy, it can sometimes be difficult to find enough time for a bit of TLC.
Therefore, if you’re looking for the perfect break and a bit down time, then there are lots of reasons as to why spa days can be beneficial, not only to feel fantastic but to look great too!
So if you’re sitting on your sofa feeling lethargic and sluggish, why not book yourself a day of quality ‘me time’ and take advantage of the benefits that spa days are so fantastic for!
Revitalise your skin ready for summer
During the cooler months, we can often become prone to dry, flaky and dull looking skin. As we are fast approaching the warmer sunny weather, there is no better time to refresh your skin and make it look and feel healthy.
Body scrubs and massages are a great way to help restore essential oils and nutrients into the skin giving your complexion a healthy glow whilst making you feel great.
Holmer Park Spa offer a wide variety of spa packages and treatments depending on your preferences. Their Peppermint and Seaweed Sugar Glow treatment would be the perfect pre-summer massage to give your body a full exfoliation in order to help remove dead skin cells and leave you looking refreshed and reinvigorated.
Leave it to the professionals
Although there are lots of face masks, creams, body scrubs and other products that we use to try and give our bodies a look and feel of revitalisation, the truth is that attempting the treatments yourself probably do not feel as effective as they do when you experience them at a spa.
By booking yourself a spa day, you’re leaving it to the professionals who know exactly what they’re doing and can consequently give you the best experience. Not only this but if you do have any particular aches or pains or perhaps areas you want concentrated on, your masseuse can help tailor your treatment to suit your personal needs.
Good for stress relief
Within our busy schedules, it can sometimes be difficult to find ways of properly unwinding, however it is important amongst work and other things that we have a break and relax which is just another fantastic reason as to why spa days are so great!
It’s amazing what the effects of a long hot bath after a stressful day can do for you, therefore, it isn’t hard to see how a day full of pampering, soaking, steaming and generally relaxing can help to give you the perfect pick-me-up!
Great for relieving muscle pains
We’ve all experienced aching muscles which particularly occurs after exercising, so if you’re feeling a bit stiff post gym workout or just generally feel a bit sore, then you should definitely consider booking yourself a spa day!
Massages are great for helping to improve circulation which as a result, helps to relieve pain according to best health’s article discussing the benefits of massage therapy.
The same article also stated that a study published in 2011 in the Annals of Internal Medicine concluded that massage therapy was found to be as effective in helping to treat chronic back pain as other methods of treatment.
Enjoy some quality down time
If nothing else, spa days offer a great opportunity to enjoy some quality ‘me time’ giving you the chance to properly unwind and relax.
Whilst it can be great to go and experience the various treatments and spa facilities on your own, spa days are also a perfect way to catch up and enjoy the day amongst friends.
Although some spa treatments offer more solitary experiences, there are lots of packages which include full use of the spa’s facilities including the pool, steam rooms, sauna as well as catering for your group giving you plenty of time to enjoy the day amongst friends.
As you can see, there are many reasons as to why booking a spa day could be beneficial to you. Therefore, whether you’re wanting to escape the world in work in order to enjoy some quality stress-free time, or whether it offers you the chance for you to meet with your friends and make use of the various spa facilities, why not feel the benefits for yourself and book yourself a trip to the spa!
