As life slowly reverts back to normalcy, we are returning to a time in which we paid more attention to how we looked. Not only that, but the lockdown period left many people in serious need of a pick-me-up. We have just the thing for you: five beauty treatments that will not only get you looking your best, but will also lift your mood and have you feeling better than ever.
Nestled atop the Himalayas, the Khyber Himalayan Resort and Spa offers guests a magical, boutique treatment: the L’Occitane facial. The treatment is founded in a floral celebration of the seasons of the Gulmarg region in which Khyber is located. Each treatment is based on the flora of a specific season. Guests pick out the flora they want to use and these are mixed with products made by the owners, L’Occitane. After the flora and L’Occitane products have been mixed together, Himalayan water is added to form a concoction that perfectly suits your tastes, needs and mood. What better way to receive such a sumptuous treatment than in a spa that overlooks the Affarwat Peaks, with its unspoilt forests, meadows dotted with flowers, one of Asia’s great ski slopes, and the world’s highest golf course!
Tibetan Kunye Massage
The Kunye massage is an ancient form of massage practiced in traditional Tibetan medicine that has been passed down through Tibetan texts and from practitioner to practitioner, for centuries. It takes the best of the Indian Ayurvedic, Buddhist, Tantric and local indigenous healing systems and is used as a holistic treatment of conditions such as anxiety, depression, exhaustion, indigestion, insomnia, and stress. The practice aims at creating harmony between the body and mind and promoting health and well-being by stimulating energy centres and channels through massage and Zathi-Dukpa herbal bags. It can be used as a healing treatment and also for relaxation. Luxury spa, Ananda in the Himalayas, located amidst the Sal forests and overlooking the spiritual town of Rishikesh and the Ganges river valley, is just the spa to go to experience the magic of the Kunye massage.
A hydrafacial is a patented clinical treatment whose purpose is, quite simple, to give you the best skin of your life. It is sometimes referred to by a much wonkier name, “hydradermabrasion”, because the process involves exfoliating the skin with microdermabrasion and the use of hydrating serums. Getting a HydraFacial is a three-step process that begins deep-cleaning, proceeds to exfoliation and finishes off with hydration. It is used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, such as acne, dryness, and wrinkles. It is noninvasive and is similar to a traditional facial, except that the results you get with HydraFacial are so much better than what you would get from a normal facial. Given the dramatic results HydraFacials provide, it is no wonder that celebrities like Kate Winslet and Amy Poelher love it. Dermani Medspa, in Buckhead Atlanta is the perfect place to get your HydraFacial. Dermani Medspa are renowned for their evidence-based treatment and use of the most advanced technologies to deliver world class treatments.
The Kaya Kalp is the stuff of royalty. Used for centuries as part of the Ayurveda system, to rejuvenate the body and reverse the ageing process, it is known for its transformative effect. The treatment was so highly valued that countless maharajas relied on it to keep them relaxed and feeling young. There is no better place to experience the transformative effect of the Kaya Kalp than the Kaya Kalp Royal Spa, built close to the Taj Mahal in Agra. It has all the splendour and magnificence of the architecture and interior decor of the Mughal dynasty and will have you feeling like royalty in no time. The spa even offers a retreat for couple’s known as ‘A Taj Mahal Romance.’
