Oh winter, why do you turn our skin into something resembling Dorian Gray’s scream-inducing secret attic picture?
It’s true that the creeping fingers of Jack Frost can definitely make complexions a tad tired and unhappy, but luckily, there is a solution.
It comes in the form of a soothing aromatherapy facial designed to give your skin a much-needed winter boost.
Of course, it’s much more fun when you can take a friend along with you for said treatment and enjoy a complimentary herbal tea and a lovely lunch.
Which perfectly describes today’s Big Deal for an aromatherapy facial for two plus lunch at Spa in the City in the 4 star Marriott Hotel.
You know that just-had-a-facial feeling? It’s a feeling that, for now at least, you have totally conquered the whole glowy skin thing. Which is nice.
Well, today’s Big Deal will let you experience this in the company of your spa buddy of choice, with a 50 minute aromatherapy facial each. What better way to embrace 2018?
The aromatherapy facial will incorporate indulgent rose and frankincense oils. The session will also include a soothing shoulder massage, plus a mask and optional steam treatment.
Rose oil is excellent at returning moisture to dry skin, plus it contains various lovely vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and can even help with breakouts (bonus).
Frankincense oil has many great complexion-boosting properties. Firstly, it is an astringent, meaning it helps to protect cells. As well as that it’s good for treating breakouts and open pores, and can also help to tighten and lift skin.
Hats off to frankincense, then.
After your facial, you and your companion can relax with a glass of sparkling wine or herbal tea in the spa’s quiet area, before heading off for lunch in the hotel.
Lunch will be the seasonal soup of the day, served with one of the following:
Smoked cheddar & relish sandwich served on white or brown bloomer bread
Chicken & mayonnaise served on white or brown bloomer bread
Ham salad served on white or brown bloomer bread
Moroccan spiced hummus with tomato salad and guacamole
Traditional Caesar salad with Parmesan, croutons, anchovies, baby gem
Lunch is served with a glass of fruit juice or iced water with lemon.
