Secrets of the Spa
Never been to a spa, or getting a new treatment for the first time? Here are five things you should know before you go:
Do your research! No two spas are alike, so make sure a spa offers the specific services and overall atmosphere that you’re looking for before booking.
Make an appointment – especially if you’re hoping to receive a service during your vacation or before a special occasion. Some places book up in advance, so reserving your spot ahead of time will ensure you aren’t turned away at the door as a walk-in.
Ahead of your treatment, avoid eating heavy meals and limit your caffeine intake so that you’re able to relax and get comfortable. Be sure to drink plenty of water before and during your services to stay hydrated.
If you’ve booked any exfoliation treatments, do not shave less than eight hours before your service, as this may cause skin irritation.
Don’t plan on doing anything too strenuous immediately following your time at the spa, or you may become lightheaded.
