Going to a day spa can make the bride look her best as well as alleviate the stress associated with wedding planning. These facilities offer facials, body treatments, massage, body contouring, hair removal, and hand and food treatments. They offer cosmetic application and instruction and have packages tailored just for brides.
Day spas offer a choice of European or specialized facials. European facials are combination of skin analysis, cleansing, exfoliation, steam, and massage on face and chest area. Some specialized facials include: deep pore cleansing facial, alpha hydroxy treatment, and oxygen facials. During an oxygen facial, a pure oxygen mist is sprayed or pumped into the basal layer of the skin. It is scientifically proven to fight the bacteria associated with acne and eliminates redness and irritation.
Full body massage is available, as well as aromatherapy massage, scalp massage and reflexology. Reflexology is the application of pressure, stretch and movement to the hands and feet. By applying these techniques, it is thought to interrupt the patterns of stress and reset the body's equilibrium.
The bride and her attendants can also receive manicures, pedicures, body scrubs, and body bronzing. Hair removal is available for eyebrows, face, hairline, fingers, toes, arms, underarms, bikini line, Brazillian bikini line, stomach and legs. For spas that specialize in skin rejuvenation, they can successfully treat a range of conditions, including: age spots, uneven skin tones, spider veins in the legs and/or face, wrinkles, acne and even tattoo removal.
Most spas offer a complete wedding day package to the bride and her attendants. Most require 24 hour notice prior to cancellation or a service fee will be charged. As always, if the entire wedding party is receiving treatments at the day spa, ask for a group discount.
