Summer is at its peak and so is depletion of moisture from our body, skin dehydration, sun-burns and break-outs. To combat all these Four Fountains De-Stress Spa has introduced a limited edition massage therapy called Summer Splash Massage.
I visited Four Fountains on a day Pune was scorching at 40 degrees. My therapy started with a warm water feet cleaning ritual which helped to get rid of the sweat and dust. Summer Splash Massage is a 60 minutes massage therapy. My therapist Mangal used techniques of Aromatherapy massage which started from my back, followed by legs and then upper body.
Why this massage is recommended in summer is because instead of oil, a cooling aloe-vera gel with mint and lime extracts is used. Aloe vera gel is regarded as a great beauty and medicinal aid. Cleopatra known for her extra ordinary beauty included aloe vera in her beauty regime. The natural properties found in it not only erase minor skin irritations but also soften the skin by nourishing it.
Aloe vera helps in the synthesis and strength of the skin tissues by increasing the availability of oxygen to the skin. It has an anti burning property and ability to soothe skin burning caused by over-exposure to the sun. Aloe biogens have the unique ability to help the skin to renew itself. Other benefits include its effective usage in reducing wrinkles, fine lines and promoting radiance of the skin.
Mint is an excellent coolant for the body. Lime is ideal for improving blood circulation and is excellent for greasy skin and skin problems like acne that are common in summer months. Summer Splash Massage ended with activating the pressure points on my forehead and scalp. After the massage I enjoyed my cup of green tea while going through the spa menu to plan my next therapy.
Summer Splash Massage is available in Mumbai, Delhi, Gurgaon, Bengaluru and Pune till 30th June’16.
