Fab Four Spas to Spoil Your Skin After the Lockdown is Finally Over

By Sandra Iskander

The new social distancing rules have kept us all away from our favourite beauty spas, leaving our skin slightly dull and our shoulders knotted with stress. To welcome the new post-Covid-19 era once the quarantine is over, here are my top 4 spa treatments you should be booking yourself in as soon as the lockdown is declared over to treat your skin to some well-deserved TLC, from head to toe.

Release any pent-up negativity before embracing the new world post-isolation and book yourself in for the Oud Renewal Therapy with Sodashi at Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney. The holistic treatment uses the rare Arabian Oud Oil to ease muscular tension while releasing stored emotions and negativity, and improving your spiritual well-being. Exclusive to Chi, The Spa, the 90-minute face and body treatment is a luxurious way to prepare your mind, body and soul for life after lockdown and walking into the new world with a relaxed energy and a Zen attitude.


Self-isolating during the Covid-19 lockdown means an overload of time spent connected to digital devices, from Zoom meetings to binge watching shows on Netflix, being online almost 24/7 has become the norm. When the lockdown is over, you can detox your mind in a former chapel at the Mandarin Oriental, Prague hotel spa with the Digital Wellness Escape signature therapy. The treatment aims to ease stress and strains resulting from spending too much time using digital devices, concentrating on the head, eyes, neck, shoulders, hands and feet.


Book yourself in for the Flora Mirabilis at The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa facial at the iconic The Beverly Hills Hotel for « a green juice for your skin ». The all-natural treatment uses raw ingredients and detoxifying steam to leave your skin looking healthier and brighter, quenching your skin with natural goodness, spoiling it LA-style after being indoors for so long.


After weeks in quarantine, clear your schedule for the Detox massage at the Six Senses Spa in the Maldives. The 60-minute treatment, in one of the spa’s nest-like cabins nestled in nature, uses dry brushing and silicon cups to stimulate circulation, working to improve skin tone and to reduce water retention, counteracting weeks spent indoors with reduced physical activity.
