NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH HYDRATION

As we age, it’s extra important to keep the skin well hydrated to maintain its elasticity and to combat the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Lack of hydration can result in skin that looks dry, flaky and tight – not what you want. If you’d prefer to get your skin into the “plump, resilient and supple” category, then think about pulling out the big guns with dedicated hydration treatments such as oxygen facials, vitamin infusions and high-performance serums.

THE BODY BEAUTIFUL

While most of us pay lots of attention to the state of the skin on our face, the same can’t always be said about the rest of our bodies. Along with body exfoliation treatments and soothing hydration, show your body some love with a relaxing massage. With spring and summer clothing comes more exposure, so if it’s been a while then now could be the time to book yourself in for some waxing, laser hair removal or a spray tan. Sad feet? A good pedicure can do wonders for neglected feet and toes, sloughing off months’ worth of dead skin, boosting hydration and delivering the kind of glam, glossy tootsies your summer sandals deserve.
