Your Top 5 Holiday Essentials for 2018

May – it’s the best month in the calendar. Two Bank Holidays, light nights and sunny days – what’s not to love?

It’s also the month when our thoughts turn to far away places filled with sun, sea and sangria, but before you pack your suitcase and jet off, make sure you take a look at the Devonshire Spa’s top 5 holiday essentials for 2018.

1. Back It Up

If you’re daring to bare this summer, give your skin a much-needed boost with the Detoxifying Seaweed Body Wrap by ishga.

A powerful Hebridean sea salt and oil scrub therapy which includes a full body wrap, this treatment combines the detoxifying and nourishing effect of the purest seaweed gel, with the stimulating and hydrating properties of the scrub. Designed to eliminate toxins, reduce cellulite, boost energy and improve skin tone, this luxury treatment will ensure you’re glowing brighter than the sun.

2. Flower Power

Bring a piece of summer with you wherever you go with Jessica Nails’ new collection, La Vie En Rose.

With six summery shades to choose from, there’s no reason not to, and what’s more, the brand is 100% cruelty-free – even more reason to get on board. We love the subtle coral shade of Peony…and it looks even better with a tan!

3. Get Sun-kissed this Summer

Does your tan always seem to go missing on the flight home? If so, the [ comfort zone ] Sun Soul Cream Gel Tan Maximizer needs to be one of the first things you pack!

This non-greasy formula helps intensity and prolong your tan. Simply use it for ten days prior to going away, then use with an appropriate SPF when on holiday for a glorious, all over glow.

4. Spray Away

Get that Hollywood A-lister look at the beach by arming yourself with our secret weapon.

Caudalie’s Grape Water is a gentle plant-based mist, extracted from grapes, which works to soothe, refresh and moisturise the skin anytime, anywhere, whilst also reducing sensitivity. Made from 100% organic ingredients, this refreshing facial spray is a great way to cool down when the mid-day sun is at its highest.

5. Fake It Til You Make It

If sun isn’t your thing, don’t panic – there’s nothing wrong with being pale and interesting!

However, if you do want to become a bronzed goddess without any of the sun damage, then why not just fake it? The Kissed By Mii tanning treatment offers a beautiful tan with none of the dangers. The nourishing benefits of coral seaweed and coastal flowers replenish the skin’s natural minerals, leaving it sublimely soft so your tan can develop beautifully and safely.
