Whether it’s treating yourself to a little me time or giving your skin a little extra TLC in the weather, winter spa treatments are always a good idea and here are just a few of the most delicious ones out there…
Seaweed is taken fresh from the ocean and its purifying elements, including potent antioxidants and minerals, are encapsulated in VOYA’s Organic Warm Spice Mud Wrap. Infused with aromatic spices of ginger and orange to revive the senses, this wrap has immediate and noticeable effects on the skin, including firming and toning, it is also a serious detoxifier, metabolism stimulator and a natural anti-ageing boost. It’s got all the hallmarks of one of the best winter spa treatments.

A facility more than a treatment, amidst the rustic charm of The Mill Wheel Spa, The Beach Hut is a unique experience which replicates the positive benefits of being on a beach in the sun. A unique experience, you lie on a bed of warm sand, and the 25 minute experience takes guests from darkness to sunrise to peak sunshine and then sunset. Relaxing music and essential oils complete the ‘holiday’ experience. It is ideal for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) to top up Vitamin D levels helping beat winter blues and this can even stimulate the metabolism.

The sunlight therapy room allows guests using their gorgeous rooftop spa to benefit from real sunlight simulators that recreate the same spectrum of light as the sun, even in the middle of winter, but without the harmful UVA and UVB rays. It is set to a 20 minute cycle. For 10 minutes the ‘sun’ rises to its peak (created with lighting effects and visuals on a screen). Then it spends 10 minutes going to sunset. To add to the sensory experience, there’s an underfloor heating system as well as heated beds. As the sun sets, this also cools the room, so the temperature rises and falls with the light cycle. It’s brilliant for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and generally making you feel relaxed.

Using the beautiful Natural Spa Factory spa products, this luxury hotel’s Star Anise and Ginger Body Salt Scrub is a warm and spicy body scrub and combines aniseed, cinnamon, mandarin and ginger essential oils as well as sweet notes of cinnamon and amber to envelop the senses as you exfoliate. Extremely moisturising and soothing – it helps create a glow for any skin. Apricot kernel oil is rich in vitamins A and E and works to renew skin cells. Meanwhile, grape-seed oil is a very light oil that can be used on even the most sensitive skin. It has astringent properties to help tighten skin and close pores which is a great benefit to oily skin as it avoids clogging that can lead to pimples. It is great for promoting skin health, alleviating fine lines and wrinkles and improving elasticity.
