Go on and indulge – you owe it to your skin.
We all know that a strict body and skin care routine will give us glowing results, but the reality is sometimes we all slip up and slack off, only to find our skin in a less-than-silky-smooth condition. When you need to get your skin back on track from head to toe, these are the beauty treatments you need to book in for.
The face saver
Treatment to try: Payot L’Authentique Facial
This French-inspired (and blissful) 42-step massage facial targets wrinkles, dullness and pigmentation with gentle beaded exfoliation, a silver pigment mask and a plethora of super serums that leave your skin looking like you’ve just got back from holidays.
How long: 75 minutes
Where: Payot salons
The body balancer
Treatment to try: Sodashi Oud Renewal Therapy
This impossibly luxurious treatment is designed to calm and soothe the nervous system using aromatic Arabian oud oil, which is said to aid in easing muscle tension and detoxification. Our highlights: the face, spine and arch massage.
How long: 90 minutes

The top-to-toe cure
Treatment to try: SpaQ Skin Rescue
Literally every square inch is attended to here, from a hydrating hair treatment to a circulation-boosting foot exfoliation. Dehydrated skin is lavished with an aloe vera and rose geranium blend, then wrapped in linen for maximum absorption. Don’t be surprised if you doze off.
