We asked Carla to share her recommendations on the key treatments she believes will make sure you are rocking the parties in your LBD and get through the rest of the year with as little stress as possible.

Body Treatments

Enjoy some of the luxury body treatments which provides you with soft, silky and nourished skin. All the spa body scrubs and the body treatments are carefully stabilised in order to provide deep cleanse and complete exfoliation of the body. The treatment will help you to discard the veil of dry and insipid skin only to restore the skin feeling hydrated and rejuvenated and your skin buffed and ready for a spray tan to give you a healthy glow.

Spray Tanning

The little black dress grooming session cannot end without a spray tan for your body and face. Spray tanning is considered to be a sunless tanning session which is done by the application of a safe chemical product that provides a similar effect of tan to a natural suntan without the damage from the UV rays. For the past few years, spray tanning has gained immense popularity as natural sun tan increase the concern about sun exposure and various other health risks. The Bodhi Tree Spa use Fake Bake because of its natural look which can be as subtle or as dark to suit your personal preference.

Manicure & Hand Spa

Now you have the base with your tan and silky smooth skin, it’s time to turn the attention to your nails and hands. Cold winds and central heating can cause havoc making your hands very dry and susceptible to chafing. A hand spa treatment with hot paraffin hand wax will rectify this leaving your hands thoroughly nourished and beautifully smooth.

Make sure your personality shines through your nail finish and choose either from a festive colour or more of a funky style with your manicure. Get into the festive spirit with some fun and stylish designs.

We like to keep it simple and we love a bit of Christmas sparkle. We’re loving the Glitter Dipped Nails by Chalkboard Nails or just a simple sparkle finish in red, green, gold, silver or midnight blue or why not mix your nail colours up?
