How To Avoid Effing Up Your Expensive Spa Day

How To Avoid Effing Up Your Expensive Spa Day

A relaxing day at the spa isn’t cheap. Whether you’re posting up at a swank hotel’s steam room before a much-deserved massage or spending your Saturday getting your detox on with a laundry list of treatments, chances are you’re splurging, with both time and money. Therefore, precautions must be taken: Don’t eff up your spa day!

It may sound dramatic, but eating the wrong foods, wearing the wrong undergarments, and using the wrong skin-care products the day before your treatment can all turn your blissful retreat into a source of stress.

To help you get the most out of your day, we’ve compiled 13 common mistakes to avoid. For advice, we tapped Regine Berthelot, lead aesthetician for Caudalie Spas, the brick-and-mortar incarnation of the French skin-care brand; Courtney Palmer, general manager of Thibiant Beverly Hills, one of Los Angeles’ finest spas; and Laura Benge, national spa director of Exhale, a rapidly growing U.S. chain of spa-fitness studios. Take it from the pros — no tip required.

This is a beautiful spa with the latest treatments; I thought Alyson was extremely knowledgeable and made sure I had the best experience here. I'd highly recommend this place to everyone!* Dominique D. Santa Monica, CA * Individual results may vary and are not guaranteed.

Georgette was so thoughtful & my Radiance Facial was amazing - I travel frequently for business and my skin was dry and uneven. I was so relaxed after discussing my concerns & fell asleep, then woke up literally glowing. The best part was the customized service and tailored treatment specifically to my skin. I am half Mexican & half Irish - so I have fair skin that tends to become uneven - I purchased the fabulous hydration mask to keep the glow going!* Tina A.

I absolutely love Thibiant! The staff is wonderful and makes you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door. I've quite honestly never had better customer service. Dr. Glassman is fantastic and helped me with a few facial procedures that I was very nervous about. Needless to say I'm back to feeling and looking great and I 100% recommend this place!* Briana G. Beverly Hills, CA * Individual results may vary and are not guaranteed.
