Summer Day Spa Treatments

Special Summer ikatan Spa Treatments

What Spa Treatments do you need this Summer?

Sandy feet, salt-kissed hair,  it’s Summer take me there! While we all love to get out in the sun, sea and sand, enjoying the freedom of relaxing on the beach or long walks in the Noosa National Park, the summer season plays havoc with our skin.

If ageing is something you want to keep under control, then you’ll need some nourishment for your body after a day on the beach, in the sea or pool or in the sun because being out in the elements is, unfortunately, the fastest way to age.

At ikatan Day Spa in Noosa, we change our day spa specials every season, because as seasons change and so do we.  Throughout the year we regularly introduce different treatments, packages and products to suit different skin types and the time of year.

Here’s what you need to think about if you want to glow from head to toe this summer, prepare for the social events and take care of your wellness during your summer holiday.

Body Treatments

Body brushing, exfoliating and wrapping – Body scrubs and wraps are ideal in the summertime to slough off dry skin and replenish the new skin you’ll be showing off in your swimmers and shorts.

Dry body brushing – A great way to stimulate lymphatics, exfoliate and remove dead skin. It should be done at least a couple of times a week.

Body scrubs – A convenient way to exfoliate in the shower once a week and body scrubs usually have an oil or cream base to nourish skin at the same time.

Body wraps – A great way to get the most hydration into your skin. While you’re wrapped, the pores of your skin open with the warmth of your body heat, created while in the wrap which accelerates the absorption of the nourishing products to hydrate and nourish the skin.

Having a spa treatment where your entire body is nourished is a relaxing experience, and every summer at ikatan Day Spa our popular 2 hour Special Summer Ceremony Package is the perfect summer hydration package to restore your skin with organic coconut oil and subtle frangipani scrub in a body wrap while you drift away with a scalp massage. After a shower enjoy a 45 minute Balinese massage and calming facial.

Body Oils, Lotions and Potions

It’s a personal choice as to what you like and what feels best on your skin, but here’s the
lowdown on what works best for different skin needs. Use organic or natural products if you can, as your skin is the largest organ of your body and it only takes a few seconds for what you put on your skin to get under your skin. There are a lot of products on the shelves with nasty chemicals and generally, if it contains, parabens, sulfates or a list of unrecognisable ingredients it’s probably not healthy.

Oils – Oils ain’t just oils there are so many types of oil to use on skin. However, Oils is the ideal product for dry, flaky, eczema or rough skin. There are so many oils to choose from, but my favourite is ikatan Spa Anti-ageing Oil that we created with a blend of organic plant-based oils along with vitamin A, C, E and it’s in a base of camellia oil, from the tea plant.  Coconut oil is a safe and favourite oil we love at ikatan Spa that we use for pregnancy massage as it helps prevent stretch marks. Both camellia and coconut oil have a small molecular structure, which means they absorb easily. They’re both easy to find too and organic products are widely available.

Body milk and lotion – Light and easily absorbed. However, while they do make the skin look better immediately, they soak into the skin fast and can leave it looking dry again soon after application. At ikatan Spa we use body milk and coconut milk in combination with other oils in body wraps to nourish the skin without it feeling oily on the skin.

Body cream or body butter – These are thick and heavy so they’re better suited for use during winter as they sit on the surface of the skin for longer, then gradually soak in as your skin absorbs and disperses the products. Great to use as a massage cream or rich nourishment for your skin and dry feet.

Pretty Feet, Keep Them Neat

Summer sandals and party heels call for pretty feet. While we should all have pedicures at least once a month, our toes are on display most of the summer, so you want them to look pretty.

Having a pedicure is a relaxing experience, especially with a glass of champagne or pot of tea while seated in the garden room at ikatan Spa.

This summer we have a special Kepala Package that includes a pedicure and an Asian Head Massage while your painted toes are drying. As with all pedicures at ikatan Spa, you get to take home your new bottle of nail polish in the colour of your choice.

Share a double room for a massage

The holiday season and our Australian summer is a time we like to spend with family and friends and visiting the day spa is a relaxing way to be together.

If you love getting a massage, you’re going to want to book one of our Packages for two and have a look at our Specials Page for seasonal specials for two. All guests are offered a complimentary glass of champagne or pot of tea in the gardens before or after your treatments at ikatan Spa Noosa, awarded Australian Wellness Spa 2019-2020 by Luxury Travel Guides Global Awards.

Happy holiday from me and everyone at ikatan Spa
