It’s no coincidence that when you look good, you feel good too. With travel back on the agenda for summer 2022 our social media timelines are already bursting with pictures of toes by swimming pools, and sun-kissed – but not burnt – glowing golden skin.
So, let’s get you ready to glow this summer with our top-to-toes holiday prep checklist. Whether you’re jetting off to warmer climes, camping with the kids or enjoying an at-home staycation we all deserve to feel on top of the world.
Let’s start the ball rolling with a relaxing Indian head massage. A long-standing tradition for thousands of years in India, this treatment is designed to relax the mind, as well as easing tension in the upper back, neck, and shoulders.
At Tonic Day Spa we’re incredibly proud of our range of facials and aesthetics treatments. Get silky smooth skin with some dermaplaning, plump up the collagen production with a Byonik session, or just relax and enjoy and facial from our Image Skincare range – a healthy, natural way to start your journey to glowing skin.
Moving on to brows, Noel Gallagher may be famous for his unibrow but that’s not such a hot look for your summer selfies. Lay back and let our team of beauty experts shape and tint your brows to perfection. From a quick re-shape with waxing or threading, to a complete brow sculpt using the market-leading HD Brows range, you’ll have the best brows on the beach in no time.
Let’s talk luscious lashes. Once the sun goes down and the shades are off, let your lashes do the talking. Express lashes are perfect for the holiday – lasting 2-3 weeks they don’t require infills and only take around 30 minutes to apply. For something a little longer lasting, maybe Hollywood, or Russian lashes are the ones for you. The best bit with lash extensions is that you can leave the mascara at home too!
For the summer X-factor, you need to eXfoliate from top to toe. The skin is the largest organ of the human body – and the one that takes the most abuse from everyday elements such as the weather and environment. A full-body pre-holiday exfoliation will remove all of those invisible dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth, making it easier for moisturisers and suntan cream to easier absorb into the skin for greater effectiveness.
Our Himalayan Salt Scrub is a popular choice with many regular clients. Lay back and relax for 70 minutes as we work our magic with the warm Himalayan salt stones. You’ll leave us with skin as smooth as silk, ready to soak up the rays – and the SPF cream!
We can also help you to fight the fuzz with some waxing. Leave the razor at home as we wax your legs, underarms, top lip, brows, and bikini area. Waxing will help to alleviate unsightly razor-burn or skin bumps but will need to done at least two weeks before your holiday. Newly waxed skin should avoid the sun and be regularly moisturised.
Have you ever played “spot the newbie” on the beach or by the pool? They’re usually the ones who are milk-bottle white, standing out like a sore thumb when they arrive in-resort – and lobster red by the end of day 1. Treat yourself to a spray-tan and blend in from the start of your holiday. Our Express Tan develops in just two hours – and will leave you with a flawless, natural looking tan.
For those sunbed snaps, let’s get your feet match-fit with a Prescriptive Pedicure. Using the Footlogix range, your treatment will begin with a soak in a warm foot bath before we trim your toenails and exfoliate away all of that hard skin – with a calming foot and lower leg massage thrown in for good measure. Finish off with a dash of colour from our range of Artistic nail colours. If time is the enemy, opt for an Express Gel Pedicure instead. You’ll have picture-perfect, Insta-friendly feet to be proud of.
Finally, don’t forget your nails. Your holiday is a time to kick-back and relax so if you need to err on the side of caution for work, you can let loose and go for it when you’re on holiday. Experiment with bright colours and nail art – or just match your fingers and toes in the same colour. Just remember to book additional time for nail art as it takes a little longer to apply.
Chances are, you don’t need all of the above but our Holiday Essentials package includes and Express Gel Manicure, Express Gel Pedicure, Eyebrow shape, Eyelash Tint, and Spray Tan – all for £99.
