FEEL … YOUTHFUL
What: Beauty in Bloom Treatment
Why: Sometimes we do feel - and look - our age, and that's when it's time for an indulgent and calming facial. The anti-ageing treatment uses cleansers, serums and moisturisers from the ESPA Optimal Skin Collection, and involves a double cleansing, facial massage and finally a tinted moisturiser finish to lock in the nutrients and get you ready to face the world.
Who: Ideal for those in need of a revitalising pick-me-up from head to toe, as the treatment comes with a hand exfoliation and a hand and foot massage.
Where: Ritz-Carlton Spa by ESPA
Details: 80 minutes, HK$1,680-HK$1,780. Available until June 30
FEEL … LUMINOUS
What: Natura Bissé Citrus Boost Facial
Why: This contouring aromatherapy treatment is ideal for uneven skin tone. The active ingredients in the masque reduce hyperpigmentation and boost radiance. With the summer-appropriate citrus fragrance, you'll feel uplifted and so will your skin.
Who: Ideal for sensitive skin. From the exfoliating process to the final application of the soft masque, at no point did the products irritate our skin.
Where: The Oriental Spa, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong
Details: 60 minutes, HK$1,500-HK$1,650. Available until June 30
FEEL … ROMANTIC
What: Elemis Botanical Touch
Why: It's bikini season and time is ripe for some full-body TLC. The 25-minute body scrub exfoliates dull skin with sugar enzymes scented with botanical essential oils, while the 55-minute massage combines rose, camelina and poppy seed oils for a luscious, rejuvenating experience.
Who: Perfect for embracing your feminine side before a romantic date. Alternatively, book in a sparty with your girlfriends and take advantage of the spa and tea promotion at the Café, which includes a themed afternoon tea to go with the treatment as well as a free gift.
Where: Melo Spa, Hyatt Regency Sha Tin
Details: 80 minutes, HK$1,199
FEEL … INVIGORATED
What: Cryotherapy has been around for centuries - the idea is that the extremely cold air triggers your body's fight and fight response, thereby stimulating blood circulation and increasing endorphin levels for stress relief. Go for the full-body treatment in the cryosauna, try a localised treatment or facial, or choose the LED light therapy.
Why: You can tell people you've been frolicking half-naked in -130 Celsius - you'll literally be the coolest person they know. Also, there's the celeb factor - Jessica Alba, Daniel Craig, Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore are fans.
Who: Try it long-term for increased collagen production and reduced inflammation, short-term for instant rejuvenation and a metabolism boost - or simply for the bragging rights.
Where: Polaris, 10/F Lee Theatre Plaza, Causeway Bay
Details: Single sessions are HK$600 (cryofacial) and HK$900 (whole body), but membership packages are available.
