If a picture speaks a thousand words, my job for today is done: I don’t have to tell you how relaxing and rejuvenating my visit to the House Of ELEMIS spa was. What I do want to tell you though is how important it is, with all the hard work you put into feeling great from the inside (since I embarked on the healthy eating and mindfulness journey I feel like a new person), to balance it out with a touch of a beauty therapy from the outside.
And if you feel like your body is sometimes blowing hot and cold on you, it’s time to come back with ELEMIS spa’s Targeted Toning Tightener which, through a hot-and-cold sensation of the treatment, will leave the skin glowing from the outside. (Proof below 😉 ) Go back 1hr 30 mins, I entered the beautiful House Of ELEMIS spa for my pre-holiday spa fix.
A powerful blend of massage and a detoxifying clay for targeted toning and improved circulation, Targeted Toning Tightener is a localised treatment (choose Arms, Hips & Thighs, or Abdomen), which, true to its name, focuses on tightening and toning the skin.
Starting with dry body brushing (something I learnt at the recent detox retreat I went to and what we all should start our day with) that improves blood circulation, my lovely therapist Laura got a blend of salts, minerals and seaweeds to work magic on my skin, followed by a targeted sculpting massage to kick-start the micro-circulation, promoting a smoother silhouette and invigorating the entire body.
There is more to the experience than meets the eye however – when a cooling rubberised mask, rich in super-detoxing caffeine and green clay is applied to selected areas: the skin is feeling the heat while cooling down at the same time. This little shock to the system (a sensation hard to explain – so you definitely should experience it yourself) together with a clinically proven positive effect of Red Algae redefines areas prone to sagging. The result is a targeted body airbrush and skin that looks and feels intensely toned and refreshed. To conclude this detoxifying and refreshing experience, you will be offered a delicious drink of a pure watermelon.
Designed for people who are serious about looking after their skin and serious about looking after themselves, the luxurious Mayfair townhouse is the creative heart of ELEMIS. A couture beauty house offers transformative treatments, personalised to respond to the ever-evolving rhythm of our lives and the ever-changing nature of our skin.
After 14 years, the brand flagship store re-opened back in May after a total transformation revealing the work of designers Virgile and Partners and demonstrating in its design the very best that science and nature can offer. Natural materials have been blended with textural lighting, artisanal glass, ceramic work and innovative design, creating an atmosphere both contemporary and intimately residential, as well as fresh and welcoming. If you want to keep your visit under covers, visit ELEMIS spa’s Penthouse – you will have a luxurious spa experience like no other.
While I could live in the House of ELEMIS spa, beach time is calling and I feel I am beach body ready – both from the inside and outside (disclaimer: no body shaming here!).
