Firstly, Happy New Year from all of the team at The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel!
One of my favourite things about starting a new year is opening up a fresh new diary (there’s something immensely pleasing about new stationary!) and putting in the important dates. It also gives me a chance to think ahead to what I’d like to achieve in the upcoming year and take a moment to write down my new year goals. Apparently, the simple act of writing down your resolutions will help you stick to them, as well as sharing them with friends and family, who can then help support you.
This year I’m going to continue with the long process of making sure I take time to look after myself with a particular focus on improving my skin health. We have an incredible menu of advanced treatments at The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel and I am going to make sure I book in for a course of Microdermabrasion. It works well as a one-off glow-getting treatment, but by committing to a course I know I’ll see an improvement in the overall radiance of my skin, as well improve sun damage, hyper-pigmentation, age spots and scars as well as easing skin congestion, uneven texture and tone and softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Taking part in ‘Veganuary’ is hugely popular this year, and there are many health and environmental benefits that come with doing so. While I won’t be making the leap into becoming a full-time vegan, I do want to be more mindful with my choices by trying s few recipes from the new book Planted by Chantelle Nicholson. Vegan recipes are supposed to be great for your skin – increasing the number of antioxidants, encouraging collagen production and combating acne.
For those looking for a spa treat to help them reset their body and mind, I highly recommend booking in for Reflexology with one of our therapists at The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel. The treatment has a deeply relaxing effect on the body, mind and emotions. It is a complimentary holistic therapy that treats the whole person and will leave you feeling lighter and more balanced. The perfect start to 2019!
