Your 6 step guide to all the holiday treatments you'll want before jetting off to the sunshine.
1. PEDICURE & MANICURE
Winter feet go through a lot, and if it's your first pedi of the warm season, the best results will come from seeing a professional. If you're treating yourself to a longer holiday this year, ask for a durable shellac polish to prevent any early chips to the varnish. Feeling extra fancy? Hit up DryBy for chic accents and nail art.
2. FAKE TAN
Most of us like to get our glow on before we even get on the plane. James Reed self tanning range has a tan for every need - We particular like the H2O Tan Mist. Infused with skin-beautifying minerals, this is an ideal face treatment for those who want a hydrating boost with their tan.
3. OLAPLEX HAIR TREATMENT
A quick fix to restore shine and smoothness to dry, damaged hair is an Olaplex hair treatment. Olaplex works by rebuilding tiny broken hair bonds to help keep hair healthy and strong and will slow down further damage from the sun. Book into Hershesons salon for a 20 - 30 minute treatment.
The least glamorous beauty treatment should be done before any fake tanning as waxing can uneven a fake tan. The pro's recommend investing a series of waxes a few months before the start of your holiday to reduce hair growth over time.
5. BROWS + LASHES
The last thing you want to do on holiday is wear tons of make-up. It's uncomfortable, a hassle to do and really unlikely to last past your hotel lobby. Solution: Get a brow and lash tint! Visit Suman Brows for both treatments and enjoy enhanced, darker brows and lashes all day long minus your usual beauty routine.
A decent facial will minimise skin issues such as pigmentation to dryness, all of which can become especially irritating when you're away from home. The Light Salon uses LED light technology instead of traditional scrub methods to target problem areas boosting collagen and elastin production. The 15 minute express service is handy for those who are tight on time. Sunday Riley's first ever spa uses CRYO therapy (there's currently only 2 machines in the whole of the UK!) in their facials to fight the signs of inflammation and sensitivity. Combined with LED technology and a range of results-driven Sunday Riley products, their one hour Ice Lift treatment will lift and lighten your whole face instantly. Both The Light Salon and Sunday Riley spa are available at Hershesons Berners Street, London, W1T 3LR.
