Nothing says summer quite like a golden tan but, regardless of how often you apply the best marine-safe suncreams, there’s no denying frequent sun exposure can have adverse effects on the health of your skin. Luckily many spas now offer treatments to prepare skin before and revitalise it after sun exposure so you can bask in your sun-kissed glow without the guilt.
The White Room, London
Located in London’s upmarket Knightsbridge, the tiny White Room spa contains just one treatment room meaning you get the highest levels of dedicated service. To prepare your body for your upcoming vacation opt for the 60-minute Valmont Fresh and Peel body treatment. Choose between sea salt, apricot kernels or a cellular refining scrub for an invigorating full body exfoliation before Valmont’s sea buckthorn oil – which is packed with vitamins and antioxidants – is massaged in to leave skin super smooth.
On your return be sure to book in for the Princess Pan Dai Sun Repair facial. Formulated specifically to fight the ageing effects of sun exposure, this 60-minute facial improves the skin’s texture and condition with a gentle exfoliating scrub and calming massage followed by the application of Valmont’s regenerative collagen mask.
