Get your ‘cuke’ on at luxury spas around the world
24th June 2013 – Cucumbers: hydrating, healthy and oh so delicious. With summer’s heat almost here, Willow Stream and Fairmont Spas are getting their “cuke” on with fun new treatments and offers across the brand. This June, July and August, cucumbers will infuse a fresh, fun and energising attitude at Willow Stream that will give spa goers a zest for the season.
Cucumbers are 95 percent water, and help keep the body hydrated while also assisting in eliminating toxins. In addition to having most of the vitamins the body needs in a single day, the vegetable has been linked to being able to improve skin irritations, stimulate hair growth, and much more. In order to take advantage of all of these healthful qualities, Willow Stream will be using cucumbers in various treatments and creative offerings throughout the summer months.
A special 60-minute Cucumber Body Wrap will be featured in June, drawing from the restorative and replenishing powers of aloe vera, shea butter and cucumber. Guests will enjoy a therapeutic massage, wrap, facial aloe/cucumber application and healing aromas that calm and clear the lungs. July’s 60-minute Cucumber Pedicure features a foot soak in therapeutic mineral salts and cucumbers, an exfoliation, a foot massage with cucumber extract and aloe and a nourishing paraffin treatment. August welcomes a 90-minute Cucumber Facial to the menu. The experience features a back cleanse and exfoliation, a rehydrating facial with nourishing aloe and antioxidant-rich cucumbers to tone and nourish stressed skin, finishing with a luxurious pressure-point scalp and foot massage to awaken energy. Restorative cucumber-infused refreshments complement the rejuvenating spa treatments.
Willow Stream’s signature cucumber experiences will only be available for a limited time, and have been developed by Kerstin Florian International, the brand’s global spa partner known for bringing an ageless approach to beauty. In addition, individual spas will feature creative offerings such as cucumber-infused towels for the steam rooms, summer Bento Box specials with cucumber sandwiches, and more. Guests at Fairmont The Palm, Dubai can enjoy cucumber and mint sorbet while post-spa libations at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn include a cucumber and ginger gimlet.
Cucumbers not only hydrate and refresh but contribute to health and beauty throughout the body. The silica in cucumbers helps to stimulate hair growth and strong nails as well as skin health. At home, cucumber skins can be used to diminish skin irritations – place a slice over puffy eyes and its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce puffiness.
