The temperature has dropped rapidly over the last few weeks, and we’re all donning our best hats and scarves, turning up the heating, and getting out the blankets to warm ourselves up.
But if you want to feel truly cosy and pampered this winter, a spa break might just be the best way to go about it. Here’s why winter is the best time for a spa break.
Your skin needs looking after when it’s cold
Cold weather and winds can be harsh on your skin, which is why so many of us often struggle with dry skin in the winter. A trip to a spa can be exactly what you need to restore your skin to full health. Spa beauty treatments can help moisturise sore and dry skin, and the time you spend relaxing is time that your skin has to repair itself.
Give your body a break from the cold
The warmth of a spa feels even better when it’s cold outside. Your body can enjoy a much needed break from the cold and harsh weather, and completely relax in the warm.
When we’re exposed to too much cold, our immune systems take a bit of a battering, and we’re more susceptible to nasty colds and winter bugs. So a day or two in a spa could actually be the perfect solution to keeping your body healthy and illness-free.
Your mind probably needs some time to relax
It’s not just our bodies that suffer during the colder months, our minds often get a little too stressed, what with Christmas looming. A relaxing spa break can be the perfect way to let your mind unwind, and let go of any stress that’s been building up.
Many people suffer with seasonal depression, and a trip to the spa can help with this as well. Time spent doing nothing but relaxing, reflecting, and meditating (if you’re the spiritual type), can be perfect for restoring mental strength and clarity, and is key to increasing your happiness.
