Tips to Prepare for your Spring Vacation

The days may still be gloomy but spring break is fast approaching. We know how long the winter season can be, and now we have to face the fact that we might not exactly be beach-ready. In order to prep for spring break, vacation consider starting soon! Here are our best tips on how you can give your body the pre-trip TLC it deserves.

THREE WEEKS OUT

Exfoliate and Hydrate

This step is often overlooked but it is one of the most important steps. It’s not so much about the act of scrubbing itself, but more importantly when you begin. You should allow yourself 2-3 weeks of intense buffing in order to acheive a glow by the time you’re relaxing on your vacation. So start now. Book in for a luscious full body scrub - like our Wild Lavender Sugar Glow - then continue with a take-home scrub to use every few days. Finish your body polish with a high quality, soothing and hydrating body lotion such as Voya - Softly Does It.

ONE WEEK OUT

Put Your Best Face Forward

Just like your body needs a good scrub in order to glow your face also needs some exfoliation and hydration to reveal your best glow. The combination of windy, cold, dry weather outside and humidity-depleting heaters indoors works to drain our skin of vital moisture during winter months. If you don’t know already by now, lack of hydration can cause your skin to produce more wrinkles and dry out much faster. A deep exfoliation and infusion of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid is just what you need to acheive clear, glowing skin in time for your vacation. Luckily for you, our Pure Hydrafacial includes just that!

Book Your Wax

Let’s admit it, things can get a little unruly in the waxing department over the winter months. Now is the time to book in for your leg and body waxing to make sure that you don’t have to worry about bringing a razor on your trip. The Woodhouse Day Spa offers full body waxing services for women.

Set a Foundation Tan

Vacations warrant at least a little base tan. 24 hours after your waxing start using a high-quality gradual tanning product to ensure an even, natural glow. Your skin should be well exfoliated and nourished from at least a week’s worth of scrubbing. Choose a product that delivers a buildable tan while hydrating and moisturizing the skin. 

THREE DAYS OUT

Prep your Nails

A fresh manicure and pedicure will help you feel ready for those fabulous spring days when you slip on your sandals. Choose one of our bright new spring colors to help banish the winter blues, and get you feeling ready for your spring vacation! Schedule a Agave Nectar Maincure and Pedicure to keep your nails looking fresh for your whole trip.

Lastly, relax and enjoy your break! Plan now and schedule your spa appointments online now or call our friendly spa concierge.
