Exotic Spas

A few days ago, I received a very pleasant mail from Kate Schumer of Priority One Jets. She told me that she had stumbled upon my blog and asked me if I'd like to share their latest blog post about exotic spas around the world, as she thought it would be interesting for my readers. I was very excited that she found my blog fitting for this job and I couldn't agree more with her. Of course I said yes!

"For some, the pursuit for the elusive fountain of youth doesn't end with a trip to the local drugstore. Whether it’s a sprinkle of diamond dust or a slather of caviar, there is no limit on the lengths that some are willing to go to maintain that youthful glow. From exclusive treatments to luxurious locations, here are a few places to visit where the spas are as breathtaking as the local scenery.
Japan (Beverage Pools) – Green tea isn’t only a thirst quencher at the Yunessun Spa in Japan. Several separate, large pools at the spa are filled with warm coffee, green tea, and wine. Visitors are encouraged to choose a pool based on their desired treatment, which ranges from enhancing the immune system to the treatment of fatigue.
Iceland (Mineral Massages) – Mud, salts, and minerals take center stage at this picturesque spa. The Blue Lagoon, among other spas in the area, utilizes different elements of nature to provide a calming and relaxing trip. From in-water massages to algae wraps, visitors ages 6 and up can experience the big outdoors in a completely new way!
Miami (Evian Bath) – This is one time you won’t want to “splish splash” while taking a bath! The $5,000 treatment is a favorite of tennis champion Serena Williams and hailed as the most expensive bath in the world. Located exclusively at the Spa V in Hotel Victor in South Beach, 1,000 bottles of Evian water are used in the process of this treatment. It is believed the French mineral water detoxifies and purifies the skin.
Italy (Hay Bath) – This natural treatment has been a fixture at the Hotel Heubad since 1903, drawing tourists from all over looking for relief from mild to severe medical problems. From muscle cramps to stiff joints, both locals and several doctors have hailed the hay bath as a positive but temporary treatment.
Portugal (Chocolate Facial) – While dark chocolate is considered the “healthy” chocolate for the body conscious, visitors at the Aquapura Douro Valley Spa can get their antioxidants another way. The 40- minute treatment consists of oxygen infused, melted Swiss chocolate spread over the face. It is believed this facial fights aging, promotes healing and accelerates cellular rejuvenation."
Personally, I'd love to go to the Yunessun Spa Resort as I've heard a lot of positive feedback on green tea treatments and because Japanese hot springs fascinate me for some reason. But I sure find it hard to choose... the mineral massage in Iceland sounds good too

She also asked me to share with you a tip on how I like to de-stress during the hectic holiday season.
Unfortunately for me, there are no spas in my area (the only one we had went bankrupt last week), leaving me all by myself. Of course I enjoy giving myself a luxurious and professional treatment, but I don't mind sitting at home either.

One of my most favorite methods to de-stress, is to wear a hair mask and a face mask while sitting in my pyjamas and listening to soft music. And by soft music, I mean something like this.
That way, not only do I treat my body but I also get to unwind my mind and relax.
It's quick and something you can easily do yourself~

There is nothing better than feeling healthy 

How do you de-stress?
