Beauty Treatments with a Heatlhy Side Effect

While we all enjoy the obvious pampering of a beauty treatment, there are additional benefits that help to improve health too. So, this Mother’s Day treat Mum – and yourself – to a beauty treatment with a healthy side effect at Hopewood Health Retreat with the Mother and Daughter Day Visit special offer.

“Another side effect of beauty treatments is a reduction in stress levels and an increase in relaxation,” said Hopewood’s General Manager, Sharon Beavon. An exfoliation not only removes the build up of dead skin cells, soothing rough skin and leaving it soft and radiant, it can also help with detoxification through the skin. Body wraps not only help to refine and tone the skin and add moisture, they also aid in removing impurities and excess metabolic waste, improve blood circulation and can soothe muscle tension.

During a facial, pores relax and open, oxygen is carried to the area and carbon dioxide is carried away. Skin becomes more receptive to the absorption of nourishing and hydrating products. Tense muscles are relaxed, increasing sebum and sweat which helps to remove dirt and grease, and maintain the moisture balance in the skin. If essential oils are used, they can have a calming, uplifting and soothing effect on the nervous system.

With the average person taking 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day or 186,000 kilometres over a lifetime, feet take a beating and, according to Sharon, they are the most neglected part of the body. Regular pedicures are a great way to improve the appearance of feet, prevent foot odour, nail diseases and disorders. The foot and lower leg massage, stimulates blood and lymph circulation and works on the nervous system, helping to calm the body and reduce stress.
