Makeup - Do we really need so much?

24th July 2013 Print

Most women underestimate just how much the contents of their make-up bag costs, and in fact the average make-up bag clocks in at around £172 - more than the latest smart phone. But do we really need all these products? The professional spa therapists say no., the UK’s spa bookings specialists, asked leading spa professionals to recommend their top facials for minimising make-up and looking great:

Penny Holland, the Spa Director at Moddershall Oaks in Staffordshire commented, “We all know the key to looking good naturally lies in having great skin and having regular facials will both repair and protect skin. Facials are often seen as a luxury or a treat but in fact they are essential skin maintenance especially if you live in a city, as skin is more likely to need a deep clean.

“A facial at least 4 times a year would be ideal, using the changing seasons as a guide.  If you are taking care of your skin this should enable you to minimise your make up, particularly when it comes to coverage!”

Moddershall Oaks recommends the Elemis Modern Skin Facial.

This particular treatment is designed for skin challenged by modern living. Bursting with anti-oxidant rich minerals and vitamins, this purifying treatment helps remove damaging toxins, regenerates skin cells and rebalances sebum. The result? Re-mineralised, rebalanced and renewed skin.

Modern spa The Malvern in Worcestershire offers REN Bespoke Facials which are tailored to skin’s specific needs, so whether skin is congested or acting up from stress this facial tackles problems head on. The luxurious treatment incorporates REN’s exclusive Japanese Kobi-Do facial massage technique and steaming with rose-fragranced hot towels to create a luxurious, de-stressing experience.

The iconic Ragdale Hall offers the Decleor Ultimate Vitamin Glow Facial. In this relaxing facial a powerful blend of aromatherapy oils tailored to treat your skin concerns are combined with a 100% natural mask, packed full of vitamins and anti-oxidants. Stress simply melts away thanks to five deeply relaxing massage techniques including Decleor's iconic back diagnostic massage. Skin is left deeply cleansed, replenished and glowing with natural radiance.

To book one of these top facials, book a spa day or spa break at Day Spa packages start from £32.50.
