Today we’re loving…

When a facial begins with a back massage, you just know you’ll be leaving the session on Cloud Nine, which is exactly what happens after a visit to the Yemaya Spa for a heavenly Six Sensational Skin Treatment. And the 90-minute session is just that – sensational.

 

Yemaya Spa is a treat for the senses, offering a wonderful escape from the pressures of everyday life. Named after Yemaya, the African goddess of the ocean, it’s located on Cape Town’s Sea Point beachfront, and offers an extensive spa-therapy menu and premium brands, including Six. This locally manufactured range epitomises the perfect balance between science and nature, with a focus on healthy, pampered skin. And, of course, we love that Six does not take part in any animal testing!

 

The Six Sensational Skin Treatment kicks off with a hot oil back massage and a herbal compress treatment that works out all those niggly knots, leaving you feeling wonderfully relaxed. Next comes the facial, which includes a double exfoliation and their signature facial massage, before wrapping up with a mask. While that’s setting, you’ll be treated to a hand treatment and an arm massage. Bliss!

 

By the time your 90-minute has finished, expect to feel utterly relaxed and rejuvenated, with that deliciously floaty, not-a-care-in-the-world feeling. And together with soft, glowing skin, what more could a girl ask for?

 

PS Through the course of the facial, your therapist will evaluate your skin, selecting the products best suited to your skin’s needs – all of which you can buy to take home with you. We loved the Cranberry Exfoliating Cream – it smells delicious!

If you’re in need of a little TLC and have an hour available (which is the state I found myself in post-deadline last week) then I recommend you book yourself in for a Kalahari Rolling Sands Massage (R650 for 60 minutes). It begins with an aromatic choice; instead of oil, the massage is performed with warm, moisturising wax from one of four fragranced candles. I chose the earthy, yet fresh Khoi San scent, and for the next hour, the delicately fragranced, candle-lit treatment room at Constantia Uitsig Spa became my cocoon of calm. My therapist Angelica used her arms to mimic the flowing movement of the desert sands across my whole body. It was a very soothing, rhythmical experience, so much so that I even caught myself nodding off at one point. Bust the best bit? You get to keep the candle which is housed in a nifty ceramic jug and lid so you can recreate your own cocoon of calm at home!

 

 

Available at the following spas:

Constantia Uitsig, Cape Town

Spa de la Veille, Centurion

Isiphiwo Day Spa, Magaliesberg
