For a workaholic like me, a day at the Spa is the most invigorating, my way to escape from any responsibility in life. It may sound selfish, but hey, what do we work for if not to pamper ourselves to attain a refreshed mind and body?
A good friend of mine, Ema Trinidad, an expat from the Philippines who has made Bangalore her home, runs two amazing day spas in the city, called Springs Spa by Ema and S2 Spa by Ema. The one I went to was a special one called Springs Spa by Ema, read on and you will see why.
Ema Trinidad, is known for her skin care treatments and facial yoga. One look at her, and you are floored by the glow and youthfulness she exudes. She is absolutely gorgeous and beautiful inside out! Her mission statement is “To help her clients look and feel younger and rejuvenated after every treatment, to help them look and feel better about themselves — renewed inside and more confident outside.”
Springs Spa by Ema, located on Siddaiah Road in Bangalore, is unlike most of the spas in the city. This one has its own private pool and a Jacuzzi. It is ideal for a girls’ day out. You can spend either a half day or a full day of pampering, or a spa party if you will. Or treat your partner and yourself to an intimate time of getting pampered with the various Spa sessions that can be customised to suit to your liking
I booked for an afternoon session. After a thorough analysis of my facial skin, Ema recommended a special facial treatment which promises instant visual results.Whilst Ema and her team prepared the set up, I thought of taking a dip in the private pool, as it just beckoned.
After a good swim, I was invited to the VIP room which had an exclusive Jacuzzi. I was greeted by the rustling sound of water, red rose petals, candlelight, and a glass of wine! (it’s part of the hotel so they have a wine license). A good 15 minutes into my private Jacuzzi time, I was given a good back and upper body scrub using walnut husks. Mellow music was playing in the background and it was just perfect whilst I sipped my wine. You can get your own play list or iPod, as Ema believes each of us have our own taste in music that calms us, which enhances our relaxing time and makes it more calmer and memorable.
After the exfoliating scrub, I was taken to the green treatment room for my special facial. Ema recommended I go in for the “Signature Wrinkle Iron Facial” which lasts about 90 to 120 minutes. This was a first for me. I have been juggling between my day job and my new-found love for blogging that I had puffy eyes due to lack of sleep and my skin showed fatigue and had lost its glow. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but was informed well of what the treatment was and its benefits.
Wrinkle Iron Facial is a unique, non-invasive and revitalizing facial treatment that gives instant visual results! A revolutionary device called Wrinkle Iron delivers a proprietary blend of antioxidants into the skin. It helps diminish laugh lines, lighten dark under-eye circles, minimize open pores, improve skin tone and give skin a healthy, rejuvenated glow.
The treatment uses Galvanic currents to deliver nutrients into the skin. It renders great results, and has been proven to be effective and used by top celebrities that strut the red carpet looking radiant and rejuvenated.
How it works? The Galvanic device (looks more like an electric razor, minus the blade, but has a mini flat-iron, is a magic youth wand). It has both “-” and “+” charge. Yes, the process has mild electric currents that are passed onto your skin, you may feel a slight tingling or itching sensation. A gel is applied onto your face to help glide the device as it is rolled along the contours of your face and neck. The “-” function, clears the dead cell and remove any impurities out of your skin. Whereas, the “+” function, delivers beneficial ingredients into the skin like magnesium and helps tighten and close open pores. The process is completed by adding a cooling mask, that is allowed to dry and simply wiped off. The result is a healthier glowing skin, with visible difference.
Natural Scent – S2 Spa does not promote the use of products with aggressive chemicals that promote skin peeling. These are fruit enzymes and have a fruity scent, and doesn’t cause any discomfort.
My puffy eye bags had vanished, my skin was firmer and supple. I was told not to apply any makeup for the rest of the evening. And allow the skin to just breathe.
If you have sensitive skin, please highlight this at the start. I had a bit of redness on my cheeks, but disappeared after a few hours. I was amazed and am tempted to go back and try this out. Unfortunately, all the sheer excitement and clicking the pictures around the spa, I failed to take a selfie to show you the before and after. But trust me, my face was glowing and felt youthful.
Note – this is not a cheap facial, and depending on your skin you may need a couple of sessions and frequency, this you can get at the time of consultation. It still beats getting a Botox done or going under the knife. Feel free to consult Ema and her team, prior to booking your appointment for great results, via the link below.
The upside, you feel youthful and radiant, an instant facelift! I’d love to hear about your experience with Wrinkle Iron Facial, leave a comment below.
