Self-care is not a Luxury, it is a Necessity!

Spa days have always carried an air of luxury and opulence. But let me tell you, those days are long gone. In this day and age, it is a necessity! Whether it’s for a fresh manicure, a relaxing full body massage, or a facial to freshen up your skin, spa visits are an integral part of a person’s regular grooming routine. You might be asking yourself, why do I NEED to go to the spa?


Let me tell you why.

You NEED to go to the spa because it’s good for your physical and mental health. It’s as simple as that.


Across the world, there are so many spa treatments in practice today. Ultimately, they all aim to do the same thing: relieve stress. Whether that stress is held physically by the tension in your muscles, or mentally by the thoughts of your work or home life, a visit to the spa can help boost your confidence and make you forget your troubles for a few hours.


As women, we tend to put everyone else first (kids, work, significant others, family obligations, etc) which leaves no time for ourselves. At first glance, it might seem like spending your hard-earned money on getting a facial or full body massage is a waste. In actuality, it’s quite the opposite. Studies have shown that regular massages can help improve lymphatic drainage which helps filter toxins out of your body. Massages can also help improve the range of motion in muscles by releasing any tension held in the body. By encouraging blood flow deep in the tissues, massaging helps promote healing throughout the body.


This point is debatable, but for me, there is nothing that compares to a fresh facial! It’s refreshing, relaxing and rejuvenating! Are you stressed? Have you been sad lately? Get a facial! That’s the one solution to all your problems! And we all know that when you look good, it’ll automatically have you feeling better.


I know what you’re thinking, massages are fine. But do I really NEED all those other treatments? Do I really NEED a facial?


Yes, you really do. Trust me on this one.


Not only are facials a great way to relieve stress, it visibly improves the appearance and function of your skin, which in turn has positive effects on all aspects of your life. Licensed Estheticians in spas tailor facials to each individual to address their skin needs. So much of a person’s confidence and security are linked to how comfortable they feel in their skin. Licensed Estheticians focus on cleansing the skin first, delicately removing any layers of dead skin and blackheads, and proceed to apply treatments to provide your face with the hydration and customized attention it needs. Maintaining a proper skin care routine, which includes a facial once every 2-6 weeks can keep your skin looking healthy and youthful for longer. Again, we all know having confidence in your skin can help you feel more relaxed and happier with your appearance.


Any money spent in a spa is ultimately an investment in yourself and your body. And I think that’s an investment we can all agree is a necessity.
