Woman in her 50s

There’s no sugar coating what happens to our skin in our 50’s, with a cruel cocktail of slowing down, thinning and drying out making those pesky wrinkles look even more prominent. Lovely.

The good news is that spas are investing heavily in ground-breaking treatments designed specifically for mid-century ladies - the perfect excuse for a spa visit. So put down that mirror, pick up that phone and claw back that youth with one of these fabulous treatments, at one of these equally fabulous spas. Silver linings...

Temple Spa Champagne & Truffles Deluxe Treatment
(85 minutes, £175)

A treatment that ends with a glass of Champagne and a chocolate truffle is well worth the expense in our opinion, but the fact that this facial really works is the icing on the cake. The recipe? Double-cleanse, glycolic oxygen peel, skin-destressing alginate mask and muscle-firming massage. The result? Ironed-out wrinkles, firmer skin, reduced puffiness and a youthful radiance. Tasty.

Source Gold Rush Facial
(60 minutes, £100)

More Champagne (we’re worth it) but this time as a powerful antioxidant paired with skin-renewing pearl powder, nutrient-packed caviar extract and cellular stimulating 23-carat gold for a treatment fit for a queen. Hyuralonic acid floods the skin with moisture, while light therapy ensures the facial is as tailored as it is effective.

Natura Bissè’s Inhibit Face & Neck Lift
(90 minutes, £195)

Billed as the natural alternative to going under the needle, this 90-minute treatment packs an age-defying punch with a deep clean, intense exfoliation, advanced facial massage, filling-effect mask, and three powerful concentrates designed to fill, tighten and re-model. Say 'hello' to hydrated, smooth, tight skin.

Try it at: Three Graces Spa at Grantley Hall

Comfort Zone’s Sublime Skin 50+ Facial
(60 minutes, £85)

Sublime really is the name of the game for this treatment that isn’t recommended for spa-goers under 50. Using a combination of science and nature, trade-marked Cell Support Technology joins two special massages – Dermal Petrissage (to warm the dermal layers of the skin) and Kobido (a Japanese technique combining massage and aesthetic care) – to reactive cell production, counter skin thinning and combat dryness.
Try it at: The Spa at Pennyhill Park

ESPA’s Natural Facelift Facial
(80 minutes, £120)

Japanese Kobido massage (pictured above) also forms part of ESPA’s age-busting facial which begins with a skin analysis, double cleanse and steam before stimulating the skin with Jade rollers in preparation for sculpting and lifting massages, a firming mask and a host of hydrating creams. The scalp massage to finish will have you drifting out of the room looking nothing short of radiant.
