I could really do with some sun on my skin, but seeing as my last attempt at a mini-break with the family in Amsterdam in July resulted in four days of hiding from the torrential rain, I think I’m destined to stay pasty-skinned for the foreseeable future. Yes, I know it’s better for me, and much healthier, but it would be nice to not look as if I only come out at night! Maybe a spa break in Wales could be my salvation?
The Vale resort, near Cardiff, has got in on the ‘where’s the sunshine’ action and has launched a set of treatments designed to give us back our sparkle, sunshine or no sunshine.
The Golden Package is a collection of three gorgeous treatments that are designed to give us all a sun-kissed glow. The package includes a Precious Gold Massage, Golden Touch Facial and an All that Glisters hand and foot treatment.
The Precious Gold Massage is an all over body rub using super-moisturising gold honey, followed by a glittering dry oil, to moisturise your skin, relax your mind and give you a lovely shimmer.
The Golden Touch Facial adds a clever rejuvenating facial technique to a Clarins Instant Smooth Self Tan to give your face and décolletage a gorgeous glow that says, “I went on holiday somewhere hot.”
Follow on with a pampering All that Glisters hand or foot treatment, and enjoy a massage with a liquid gold infusion which will give you a sun-kissed shimmering glow, then a full manicure or pedicure, finished with a nail polish in a rosy colour of your choice.
OK, so it might not be the real thing, but I won’t tell if you don’t…
