The festive season is full of them: gala dinners, office parties, and other celebratory events. In this hectic time of the year, how do you arrive for that big event feeling unstressed and looking your best? Ingrid Price, manager of Almyraspa, offers some words of advice: ‘Start by considering your outfit. The cut of the garments or their colourways will shape your approach.’ A woman wearing a strapless gown, for example, may want to have a purifying exfoliation of the neck and shoulders. A good first step is a gentle, moisturising facial: the QMS Pure Oxygen Facial, for example, tightens and revitalises the skin with a collagen-based product and a boost of oxygen. Similarly, the Men’s Restorative Face and Back Treatment invigorates and destresses. Raise your glass and toast in confidence with beautifully manicured nails! Women’s shoes are often shaped to expose the beauty of the feet; a pedicure lets you put your best foot forward with a smooth heel and impeccably red nails. A simple shampoo and blow dry can be augmented with a nourishing hair mask that adds lustre to your hair’s appearance. A spa beautician can also apply bespoke make-up attuned to your complexion and outfit. Undergoing a treatment not only enhances your appearance—it relaxes and refreshes you, setting you on course for a joyous celebration with friends and family.
