Spa tips for the bride to be










On what should be the happiest day of your life, you want to be feeling at your best, and what better way to make this happen than by booking into a luxurious spa? There are a few things to bear in mind before booking treatments to avoid disaster, however, and to achieve the look you have been dreaming of.


It is important to make sure you don’t book your facial at the last minute, as having this treatment just a few days before your big day could result in a blotchy look or sensitive skin. It can also cause breakouts, as facials tend to draw out impurities, and while they can have great long term effects, the short term results are less than desirable. The common recommendation is to book your facial during a health spa break a week before your nuptials to guarantee glowing skin. More aggressive skin care procedures such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels, meanwhile, will require a longer recovery time.


Body scrubs are intended to smooth the skin and remove dead skin cells resulting in a radiant glow. Again, it is recommended that you book this treatment some time in advance, especially if you have sensitive skin. If you are feeling a bit body conscious, body wraps can offer a solution, as they are designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite and are available at some of the best Yorkshire spa resorts.

Manicures and Pedicures

Usually, you are safe to have your manicure or pedicure close to the big day, as the setting time is relatively quick. However, to be sure you have the style and look you were after, it is worth talking to a beautician beforehand.
