#1 Signature Salt Room Customised Facial (from $180)
A facial that not only gets your skin fixed, but also helps to boost overall health and wellness? Sign us up! Luxury salt medi-spa Pablo Blau combines the anti-inflammatory effects of salt with a lineup of heavenly spa treatments. This includes their signature facial, which is tailored to your skin conditions. Also, you can opt to have your facial in one of the Signature Salt Rooms – they’re entirely coated in salt crystals from Europe. We’re told that the minerals naturally draw out impurities from the body, thus improving respiratory conditions like asthma, as well as skin-related issues like eczema. Psst… The facial is tried and approved by beauty editor Anthia!
Another popular treatment is the Bacial, a 60-minute, customisable back facial that targets hard-to-reach areas on the back. Suitable for all skin types, the treatment reduces back acne, leaving behind smoother and clearer skin for those off-shoulder tops and low-back dresses you’ve been dying to wear.
