Top 6 Holiday Spa tips

Top 6 Holiday Spa tips

We all love a bit of pampering and being on holiday doesn’t mean that you need to give up on your holiday-spa ideas.  Even if you are unable to access great spas (like our favourite – The Workshop at Cabarita Beach), you can still pamper yourself by following these Top 6 Holiday Spa tips.

Be kind to your face

A rich creme with revitalizing properties is excellent to iron out the travel stresses on your skin.  We like A’kin Purely Revitalising Firming Night Crème which is a nourishing anti-age night cream formulated to firm, lift and smooth skin for visibly reduced lines and wrinkles. It contains fragmented hyaluronic acid to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity, echium oil to reduce deep wrinkles and smooth out skin, and camu camu extract, a powerful antioxidant to help protect the skin.

Don’t forget to protect

In the Australian Climate, sun damage can be your reality, so it is best to protect yourself with a great SPF30 cream  Harper’s Bazaar recommends Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector Bb cream for sensitive skin – and we do too! With hypoallergenic formula free from fragrances, the cream helps to keep skin moisturised whilst also balancing uneven skin tone and disguising blemishes.

A Good Scrub

Night-time is your skin’s most optimal time for renewal and repair. After a full day of adventure, cleanse away oil, makeup and environmental pollutants with a scrub.  Keeping in the hypo-allergenic theme, we like, the award-winning St Ives Apricot Scrub deep cleans, instantly leaving skin smooth and glowing

Nail Envy

We personally prefer the natural look, but a great nail polish can give a real boost to your favourite outfit – especially if you team it with a great manicure/pedicure and those to-die-for sandals you bought for your summer holiday!  Book in a manicure before you go, but don’t forget your essentials when you leave – so you can do a quick repair or touch up and be ready for that next great adventure.

Its all about your hair

Take special note of the local weather in your destination, for this will determine your haircare. Generally, you can’t go wrong with a drop or two of nourishing oil. In lieu of a conditioner, traveling with a product such as Moroccan Oil will help you comb through tangles while soothing brittle, dry ends. Ever the multi-tasker, Moroccan Oil will also help against frizz and static!

And if all else fails…

Make sure you have done the research and looked for a local spa for that special treatment.  We recommend The Workshop at Cabarita Beach and have personally experienced a wonderful massage, manicure and facial.  They have some great yoga classes too – meaning you can keep up with your fitness program whilst on holiday.  When you’ve finished there, pop over to Marty’s at Caba or the Pandanus Cafe (Cabarita Beach Surf Club) or for a great breakfast/lunch/brunch.  Kartel Espresso Bar is another must do!  Their coffee is amazing and their homemade slices to die for!

Follow these tips and you will continue to look and feel great throughout our holiday.  And remember,  Northern Rivers area NSW (including Kingscliff, Casuarina, Pottsville and Cabarita Beach) is the perfect spot for your next vacation – and its location is ideal – 1/2 way between the Gold Coast and Byron BayPatrolled beaches line the coast.  We even have Lisa and Pete’s top tips on things to do in Kingscliff!  Check out our blog and news, location and attractions and what’s on and markets for more great tips and things to do on your Northern Rivers summer holidays!

Happy holidays – dream about what is possible; believe you can do it; make the most of your leave; plan, book and enjoy your holiday; then dream about where you will go next!  It is your turn!
