Choosing Day Spas for Skin Care

Sep 8, 2008
If you're in the mood for some pampering and spoiling, but don't have the time or inclination to spend a week at a spa, consider a day of pampering at your local day spa. Most good-sized cities have several day spas. In fact, there may be a day spa just around the corner from your home or work. But don't just go to the closest day spa without checking out what's available in your area.

When you call or visit a day spa for a look-see, you should feel that everyone there is extremely friendly and eager to make you feel better. All massage therapists should be licensed, and the environment should be soothing, quiet and relaxing.

If you're particularly interested in a sauna, whirlpool, Vichy shower or any other equipment or treatment, ask if they offer that treatment. You should be able to see a menu of treatments and prices. If you have any questions, you should get thorough, informed answers.

You'll select the exact treatments you want. The usual services include facials, body treatment (scrub and shower), massage, manicure and pedicure. A facial is a deep-cleaning scrub of your face, of course, and a body treatment is a similar treatment of your body. Many spas also offer steam rooms, saunas, and whirlpool baths.

Before you choose a spa, spend some time thinking about the treatments you really want, and make sure that the location you choose can give you exactly what you want. Don't settle, because you won't feel as good going to a day spa and not getting exactly what you want.

Use your day spa time as a chance to settle down, relax and pamper yourself. Make sure you set aside the whole day, and prepare for the day. Drink plenty of water before you go and after your massage, to help clear the toxins from your body. Eat at least an hour before your massage, and not for an hour after. And arrive early to allow plenty of time to get ready before your treatments. And, above all, try to relax before you go so that you can get the most out of your spa day.

While you're at the spa, you will remove your clothes for massage and body treatments, but you'll be covered the entire time, and the experience is very private. During your massage, let your therapist know if you would like more pressure, less pressure, or extra attention to a particular area. If you would like to talk during your massage, you may; your therapist will usually follow your lead as to whether you want to talk.

Taking the time to go to a spa for the day is definitely worth it. You'll feel relaxed and invigorated. And once you take the time and spend the money to take care of yourself this way, you'll feel more dedicated to taking care of your body and mind and keeping up your health. For that reason, if none other, a day at the spa is a very valuable investment.
