Nothing says vacation 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 Datai Spa at The Datai Langkawi
If having your sun-exposed skin gently healed and soothed while listening to the call of rainforest wildlife and the gentle trickling of a nearby stream sounds like the perfect end to a relaxing vacation then the specially designed Top-To-Toe Post-Sun Care treatment at the Datai Langkawi's spa is for you. Located in the midst of a 10 million-year-old tropical rainforest, each of the spa's open-air villas allows you to immerse yourself in nature while enjoying the benefits of traditional Malay rituals. Begin your 90-minute treatment with a refreshing post-sun shower before indulging in a hydrating and restoring facial performed using fine organic ingredients. Then enjoy a post-sun body restorative treatment and luxurious scalp and neck massage before finishing up with some time to unwind and relax with the spa's delicious herbal tea.
