Although you may not have enough money to head on holiday, you may be able to fit in a spa treatment. To make the most of your treatment, here is what you should bring with you on the day.
Workout wear – Most spas also include Yoga, Pilates or Zumba studios. Find out what is available at your spa before packing workout gear and shoes.
Swimsuit – Spas often have whirlpools and mineral pools that are great for relaxing.
Light reading – Avoid packing any reports from work, your laptop or your blackberry and only pack a light novel or a fashion magazine.
Personal grooming – Spas will provide you with disposable combs, razors and body and hair products but you will have to pack a hair band, sunscreen, mascara, mineral powder and lip gloss.
Change of clothes – A fresh change of clothes will make you feel clean and ready for any plans after your spa day. Change into loose fitting clothing like loose yoga pants or a casual sundress, if you prefer to keep the lotions and oils on your skin.
An open attitude – Remember that not all spas or treatments will leave you with an above average spa experience. Therefore, remember to come with an open attitude and enjoy your experience for what it is.
