Spring clean your skin

Facials at Donninton Valley Hotel and SpaWe spring clean our homes at this time of year, so why not take some time to spring clean your skin. There are different reasons for wanting to do this, for example a break out on the skin, the skin feeling tired and lacklustre or just you feel your skin needs a bit of tlc.

For the body:

Body Brushing
For the body a fantastic way to stimulate the circulation and remove any winter dead skin cells is to body brush using a cactus bristle brush.

Tip tips for body brushing:

  • Always start from your feet and work in an upward direction.
  • On the abdomen brush in a circular direction.
  • Make sure you don’t apply too much pressure.
  • You can go over an area more than once if needed eg. The thighs and buttocks may benefit from this.
  • Boost your circulation by alternating water between hot and cold when showering.

Detoxifying Bath or Shower Time
Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Bath and Shower Oil is a great way to start off your home skin detox. Containing a blend of essentail oils including pink greapefruit, rosemary and juniper berry this oil is perfect to help awaken you for the day ahead. Aply to your bosy for a few minutes before showering or add a capful your bath water.

For the Face

Clarisonic Brushes
The Clarisonic Cleansing system uses a patented sonic frequency and is suitable for all skin types. Clarisonic can be included in your skin care routine as it is six times more effective than a manual cleanse. You can use it in conjunction with your existing skin care products, such as your favourite cleanser, serums and moisturisers for healthy looking skin. The cleanse is so thorough your other skin care products will be absorbed much better.

Plasmag Gel
The Plasmag gel is applied to the skin prior to the MMA (Micronised Marine Algae), it encourages sweating whilst symultaniously helping to replenish minerals. It helps to tone and detoxify the skin while softening and moisturising. It encourages the absorption of minerals and trace elements.

MMA (Micronised Marine Algae)
A 100% natural sea bath to enjoy a concentrate of thalassotherapy in the comfort of your own home! Ultra-rich in minerals and trace elements, these algae promote wellness and encourage figure refining. Or mix with a little warm water and apply to the face avioding the eye area for a deep cleansing and revitalising mask.

Spring Freshening Facial
To experience all of these products in one pampering treatment, we have launched a spring freshening facial. Spring Clean Your Skin with our new signature Donnington Valley Facial using the Thalgo skincare products to suit your skin. A double cleanse is carried out using Clarisonic brushes to start the purification process and thoroughly deep cleanse the skin. This is followed by an exfoliation to suit your skin type and extraction if required. The Plasmag Gel is then applied to the skin with the Marine Algae Mask, while this is on the skin a hand and arm massage is carried out to aid relaxation. The face is then massaged and the facial is completed with the moisturiser to suit your skin.

This facial throughout April is £40.00*.
