Get The Glow Before Christmas
It’s that time of year where the nights are getting darker and the weather is getting colder. You are probably wishing you were somewhere exotic. Well, Secret Spa want you to snap out of that mindset and embrace the next few months! It’s nearly Christmas and that means lots of parties, boozy nights and copious amounts of get-togethers with friends and family! To get you feeling ready for all the festivities around the corner, our Secret Spa girls have revealed their secrets. These will all ensure you get your glow back in time for Christmas!
Having a massage is a great way to take time out and relax whilst reducing stress and tension. Not to forget, it helps improve circulation, giving you a better blood flow, resulting in reducing cellulite and giving your skin a brighter look. One of our favourites is our ‘Deep Tissue Massage‘.
Spray tans are your best friend this Autumn / Winter. No more dull looking skin and a great healthy alternative to sunbeds. Having a tan encourages you to exfoliate and moisturise, so your skin will notice the benefits just by following the prep and aftercare. One of our VIP clients, Binky Felstead regularly has a tan as gives her extra body confidence and that natural winter glow everyone wants.
Exfoliating the skin removes the dead skin cells. This makes your skin smoother, improves dullness and it helps improve your body’s blood circulation. Who doesn’t want silky smooth skin? Those who exfoliate are also less likely to get cellulite. Win-win! We love Decleor’s 1000 Grain Body Exfoliator, which leaves the skin feeling smooth, soften and refined.
All makeup will sit better on perfected skin, so a healthy and hydrated base will always look better in photos. Once a week, exfoliate lips with a sugar scrub. This can be made at home with sugar and olive oil. Then layer on thick lip balm overnight to help increase moisture levels. When having a facial, incorporate a facial massage to enhance lymphatic drainage alongside blood circulation in your skin surface. Our favourite facial is Decléor’s Ultimate Vitamin Glow. Power-packed with vitamins and antioxidants, the award-winning facial melts away stress. Combining a rebalancing essential oil elixir plus a warm decongesting mask, leaving the skin left purified, replenished and perfectly glowing. This is perfect for clients seeking radiant skin and instant results. It even starts with Decléor’s world-renowned back diagnostic massage, ideal for relieving tired muscles and tension. It then moves onto the facial which is perfect for those seeking visibly radiant and glowing skin.
We know it’s the last thing a lot of you want to hear, but exercising really does make you feel better. Whilst toning up, you’ll also be releasing endorphins which helps trigger positive feelings. At least by exercising it means you can allow yourself a few extra cheat days – perfect timing with Christmas on the horizon and all the Yorkshire puddings and cheese boards coming your way. If you are looking for the perfect class to get fit this Winter then why not sign up to F45, we can’t wait for them to open their new studio in Fulham!

Treat yourself to a make-over for your Christmas parties, you’ll get a flawless finish and feel great. In order to look your best this winter, we have spoken to one of our elite make-up professionals and got Sara to tell us the latest trends. Sara commented;
‘This season it is all about fresh, radiant and glowy skin. The best way to achieve this is to start with a radiant primer, a great one to try is Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonder Glow Primer- this will give a lit from within look to the skin. Highlighting is still a strong look but with winter season it’s time to move away from the bronze and gold and instead embrace cooler tones. With winter comes the festive season and a time to embrace bolder eye makeup. Reds and rust colours are no longer reserved for cheeks but a great way to update the smokey eye look. If you are feeling bold and want to create an on-trend look then embrace teal and blue shades which have been seen on the winter catwalks and the latest cover of Vogue. Still keeping with the full brow, the winter look is more undone which is a step away from the overly groomed eyebrows seen on popular social media sites The winter catwalks were full of bold deep red lips as well as well as gold lipstick too.’
