The flights are booked, your bags are packed and the countdown to your holiday begins. In the midst of choosing those perfect beach-worthy outfits, don't forget to give those nibbled nails a polish and get those pins super smooth!
We've outlined your pre-escape essentials to ensure you hit the beach with a glow...
3 WEEKS TO GO | SORT YOUR FEET
Feet that have been hiding away in cosy boots all winter will need a little love. Soon to be kicking about in the sand, dried out by seawater and squashed into this season's most stylish footwear, your feet take a beating whilst on holiday.
Book yourself in for a pedicure to slough away dry skin, allow moisturiser and sun cream to work more effectively, and polish those toe nails to a shine!
Squeeze a 45 minute pedicure at Village Spa into your lunch hour from just £26.
2 WEEKS TO GO | SKINCARE SORTED
Kickstart that skincare routine - moisturiser, cleanser, whatever you need to get your skin glowing. Unsure? Ask a skincare expert such as our ESPA skincare gurus who will be happy to recommend particular products designed for your skin type.
Well moisturised skin will not only tan better, but also absorb that sun cream to ward off wrinkles and sunburn.
10 DAYS TO GO | FACE IT
Have any non-surgical facial treatments, such as our CACI treatments now, to ensure any irritation settles in plenty of time.
Have your eyebrows shaped (from just £17 in our spas), and any tinting done (be sure to have a patch test if you have sensitive skin, as the sun can make skin irritable after tinting).
1 WEEK TO GO | BAT THOSE LASHES
If you're having eyelash extensions, now is the time to have these. This will give you time to get used to your new luscious lashes if you're a newbie, and be sure that they work with your chosen summer make-up look.
5 DAYS TO GO | GET FUZZ FREE
Book any waxing treatments now to give enough time for any irritation to settle.
Choose from a selection of full leg, half leg and bikini waxing treatments at Village Spa from just £14.
3 DAYS TO GO | GET YOUR BRONZE ON
Have your spray tan 3 days before you hit the beach. This way it will still be looking fresh, but natural for when you reveal that new bikini. Our spray tans are available in classic, dark or express. We'll advise you on the best tone for your skin type, though the choice is yours.
Aim to look sunkissed, rather than 'just stepped off the beach'. You'll tan whilst you're there! And remember that a tan will affect the look of your make-up, so be sure to pack a powder a few shades darker to ensure a perfect match.
1-2 DAYS TO GO | RELAX
Relax and wait for your holiday to begin, with a soothing full body massage.
Have your manicure or gel nails applied so that the polish is fresh and will last the distance. Nobody likes fumbling around with nail polish in the heat!
