Need somewhere special to relax and revive? We asked Edina Pergel, manager at the Oceana Day Spa about some of their most popular summer beauty treatments
This Asian-inspired spa at the Cumberland Hotel, Bournemouth offers a wide range of facials, massages and beauty treatments in beautiful and relaxing surroundings. At the cliff top venue you can restore balance to mind and body within sight and sound of the sea.
What would you recommend for sun or wind dried skin?
The bespoke Oceana Signature Facial - Delicate Breeze - which soothes and strengthens sensitive skin. This treatment uses the Babor Skinovage Vita Balance range - a German skincare system that not only provides intensive moisture to parched skin but also gives your skin a fresh and dewy appearance.
And for getting feet ready for summer sandals?
Our Oceana Spa Pedicure is perfect for reviving dry and cracked feet. This deluxe treatment begins with a relax soak, followed by exfoliation and a circulation boosting massage. It concludes with a pedicure which includes your choice of nail polish from the excellent Zoya or CND Shellac range.
What would you suggest to give your tan a boost?
St Tropez Original is the ultimate self-tanning treatment, especially when applied by experts. After a full body exfoliation we apply a generous coating of St Tropez Self Tan Mist in Classic, Dark or the new Sensitive to give an all over natural looking tan to suit your skin tone, the tan will last 7 – 10 days.
You use a sugaring system for hair removal. how does this work?
Sugar waxing is a natural way of removing hair by using a simple sugar and honey base which is water soluble, rather than traditional wax which contains bees wax and paraffin. The Pharo Sugaring System we use is applied at a lower temperature and it also sticks to the hairs rather than the skin so is better for people who have sensitive skin or may have eczema or psorasis. It also has a lovely Manuka honey fragrance.
Do you have specific treatments for male customers?
There are three specific treatments: the Gentleman’s Time Out – a relaxing facial that soothes areas of irritation from shaving and deeply moisturises; the Gentleman’s Cleanse and Rebalance - a deep cleanse, exfoliation and moisturiser for a brighter and healthier complexion and the Gentleman’s Rebalancing Back Treatment featuring an exfoliation and a detoxifying mud pack followed by a healing massage. All our other massages (signature, hot stones, Swedish, Indian head massage and reflexology) are available for male customers too.
If i wanted something relaxing what would you recommend?
One of our Signature Massages, which use specific oil blends to help replenish, revitalise and re-energise both body and mind. For example the Relaxing Lavender Mint blend soothes the skin and promotes a sense of inner peace. Other blends include Cashmere Wood to rebalance and energizing Lime and Mandarin
