The Glow Getter

Whilst the Winter season brings a wealth of cosy evenings spent by the crackling fireside with a warming drink of choice in hand, there are also downsides to the cold weather – dry and tight skin.

This is a common problem during the colder seasons, mainly because the harsh weather can strip the skin of its natural protective barrier. Essentially, this causes gaps in the outer layer meaning that water can escape (causing dehydrated skin) or allows irritants to get in (causing sensitivity).

With memories of the summer glow you once had fading away, here at The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel, we have a range of treatments and products to help you restore that radiant complexion.

The ESPA Radiance Facial is a favourite of mine for achieving glowy skin. Using a combination of deeply cleansing and brightening techniques alongside age-defying massage movements, this facial powerfully brightens, firms and even the skin’s complexion. The result? Smooth, supple and radiantly healthy skin.

To restore a peace of mind and tranquillity, ESPA Body Ritual allows guests to glow from the inside out. A popular treatment at The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel, it combines a body wrap and massage to bring deep relaxation to body and spirit. Following a body exfoliation, a Marine Algae or Mud wrap is applied whilst the lovely therapist gently massages the scalp. After a refreshing shower, a tailor-made aromatherapy massage takes place with a choice between seven options of massage including the Energiser and De-Stresser. With guests feeling zen and refreshed, a natural glow will be restored with bodies feeling relaxed and tranquil.

For an at-home spa experience, our product house, ESPA, has a fantastic range of products that you can purchase in our retail area to recreate that post-treatment glow. 

The Skin Radiance Mask is a brightening mask that is perfect for revitalising dull or tired complexions. An infusion of Mulberry, Bearberry and Liquorice, the mask helps to visibly brighten and even the skin while Pumpkin Enzymes gently exfoliate dead cells for a fresher look. Perfect for those cosy nights in!

For those guilty of using makeup wipes to remove makeup or those looking to refresh and hydrate the skin after an evening of dancing the night away, try the ESPA Hydrating Cleansing Milk. A luxuriously mild and creamy cleanser, any remainders of make-up will be wiped away whilst leaving the skin comforted and hydrated. Ingredients include Rich Sweet Almond and Soya Bean Oils to nourish whilst Marshmallow and Chamomile help to calm, comfort and soothe the skin.

If any of those treatments or products sound of interest, then make sure you come and visit us at Bedford Lodge. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
