Spa treatments work to achieve a variety of benefits, but as we head towards summer (lockdown or not), it’s the time of year for rejuvenating, refreshing spa treatments that get you in the holiday mood. From preparing the skin for a healthy, safe and long lasting tan to simply feeling your best, here are some of our favourite rejuvenating spa treatments for summer….
Body polishes and body scrubs can be invigorating, excellent skin prep before or after a holiday, can help with detox, and generally make you feel pampered. As your skin is your largest detox assisting organ in the body, a body scrub can work wonders as rejuvenating spa treatments. They can be hydrating and highly therapeutic, they are also beneficial for stress relief and muscular relaxation. They are said to decrease inflammation and speed up the healing process in the body, cleansing and detoxifying along the way. In the context of a salt scrub, Himalayan salts are often used, invigorating and refreshing the skin, to remove dry and dead skin cells and bring fresh new skin to the surface for a youthful appearance. The exfoliation process also helps remove impurities and toxins from the skin, unblocks pores and reduces inflammation. Here are a couple of favourites to give you some ideas of what’s in store:
A head-to-toe spa treatment from the Harbour Hotel’s collection, the HarSPA Marine Mind and Body Signature Spa Treatment includes a facial, full body massage, scrub and polish. As with all Harbour Hotels elements, the treatment is inspired by the coastal locations of its hotels, and it’s all about helping to relax every part of your body and mind! The products use naturally sourced marine elements and botanicals from the Natural Spa Factory.
A 30-minute full body treatment using a lime and ginger scented salt scrub and an aromatherapy oil to detox, cleansing and removing dead skin cells; it smooths the skin and moisturises it as well so you don’t need to add extra creams and oils afterwards.

Slimming, detoxifying, relaxing, nourishing – body wraps are some of the most intensely therapeutic spa treatments on the market.
