How do you prepare for a spa day?
Before arriving at your day spa, be sure to drink lots of water so that your skin is as receptive to the treatments as possible. Arrive early so that you can take advantage of the sauna, whirlpool or other facilities and be sure not to eat for at least an hour before.
What do you do at a day spa?
A day spa offers a range of treatments that can both rejuvenate and relax. Whether its a deep tissue massage to relieve muscle pain or a facial and footbath, there's no shame in doing a little self-care.
What should I wear to a day spa?
Whilst dress code can vary from spa to spa, you should be fine to wear what ever makes you feel comfortable. Pack a pair of swimmers and some thongs if you plan on having a dip in the spa or whirlpool but, they should provide a towel and a robe at reception.
