BANGALORE: With work, no doubt there is stress. And stress adversely affects two areas — back muscles, skin and hair. As people go without rest (not necessarily sleep), the system will let us know through pains, aches, wrinkles rashes and hairfall. This is when one heads to the spa, which is fast becoming the preferable choice to heal.

Stress relief takes a different turn in summer, where the body stays dehydrated despite efforts to drink water and juices.

So, one summer day, this reporter tried out a summer special facial called 'Chilled Radiant' offered by Green Trends.  This is a therapeutic, non-invasive skin treatment that uses Dead Sea minerals to scrub black heads away. The scrubbing is followed by massage to improve blood circulation and also exfoliate dead skin cells.

Later, extracts from melons and cherries are used to allow the skin to hydrate and also absorb anti-oxidants found in abundance in these fruits. Anti-oxidants heals the skin from sun damage the slows the skin-ageing process.

The facial leaves you feeling rejuvenated and radiant and more importantly with the feeling that your are being pampered. This makes you feel like stress flowing out of your body allowing a much-needed rest in summer. In fact, several salons including Green Trends offer summer skin retreat packages that include facials, and hair and body massages to de-stress. The head massage which uses hibiscus oil is especially refreshing.
