Post work-out pampering
With me working out a lot lately my skin and muscles have suffered quite a bit.
I have recently had two treatments which have been the perfect answer to sore muscles and suffering skin.
Lava Shell Massage
As I am using new muscles in my work-outs and using them a lot more than normal, my muscles have been quite sore. I had my Lava Shell massage at Lomax Gym in Chelsea, it is a really relaxing treatment as it cleverly uses a combination of heat and ice treatment that helps ease everyday aches and pains and specifically muscle tension from exercise.
You can choose for the massage to focus on one specific painful area, good for any injuries from training or have a full body treatment. I went for full body and loved the feel of the shells on my skin and really felt it loosening up my muscles. I would definitely recommend to anyone feeling a little stiff from his or her exercise routine.
I found my skin was becoming quite irritated and my pores were getting quite blocked from lots of sweat and exercise so the Gazelli facial treatment at Urban Retreat helped get my skin back to normal.
I went for the triple cleanse facial which is a deep purifying treatment which helps with the drainage of the toxins and impurities along with calming your skin and correcting its pH levels.
The products they used were divine and I even treated myself to some afterwards! I really enjoyed the facial massage they gave me, it was really relaxing and my skin now feels smoothed and cleansed and no sign of any more breakouts!
