Now for the fun, rather humorous part: the full on body mud mask. Now, I have only ever used mud masks on my face and didn’t even consider how well it could work on the body as well. The Temple Spa Glorious Mud is a clay that allows you to indulge in a deep cleansing Mediterranean spa experience. Inspired by the brand’s professional spa treatment, Glorious Mud combines a mineral rich blend of mud and kaolin clay with red algae and seaweed to stimulate the metabolism and promote fat burning (YES PLEASE!) It also aids muscle relation and deeply purifies, hydrates and leaves skin feel smooth and glowing!
Other than the saunas, steam rooms and heated pools (my favourite kind of spa has a rooftop, like the Bath Spa which I have actually been to and loved), my favourite aspect of a spa is having a number of treatment options available; I love a good treatment, especially a massage. Obviously massaging yourself at home can be a tricky, awkward situation, but after a warm bath I like to get my blood circulating as much as possible, and have found using a body oil like the Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Oil a real treat. I tend to pay more attention to my legs as - other than my back - my legs hold tension and ache quite regularly. The scent is so reminiscent of an actual spa - containing a blend of pink grapefruit, rosemary and juniper essential oils - and the formula is really nice to work with; sinking into skin quickly and leaving it soft, supple and nourished.
