If you love electric facials then you’ll love this. Using French skincare by Guinot and products tailored to individual concerns from anti-ageing to hydrating, the facial includes the usual cleanse, exfoliation and mask, but with the addition of the use of positive and negative electrodes in the form of small metal rollers to create micro-currents to deliver the active ingredients deep into the skin, leaving it plump and hydrated, with a new lease of life.

If your skin is looking a little more drab than fab and needs a much needed pick-me-up, this is the facial for you. Not only is it deeply relaxing, but the ingredients are all natural and you’ll see results as soon as the next day. Beginning witha deep cleanse using a purifying cleansing oil, your therapist will then analyse your skin using a magnifying lamp to understand your skin type and then follow with a tailored second cleansing and gentle exfoliation scrub. She’ll then apply a hot compress using hydrating concentrate before starting extraction (if needed). This will be followed by a facial massage using a deliciously smelling jasmine cream and massage movements including lifting pressure points and lymphatic drainage. Lastly, a detoxifying mask will be applied to help aid the skin’s healing process (accompanied by a head message), then removed as the last of the creams are added. Your complexion will be purified, hydrated and ready for holiday.

Book in for a pampering anti-ageing facial using Nature Bissé’s range of products that are packed with active ingredients. The Diamond Whitening facial uses a potent Pyruvic & Lactic acid peel to remove the top layer of skin, effectively combatting dark spots caused by hyper-pigmentation and revealing a glowing, more youthful complexion. This facial is great for skin that’s been over-exposed to sun, especially after a holiday.
