We all deserve to pamper ourselves, rest, relax and rejuvenate. Enjoy these 7 curated Spa treatments and experiences across New Zealand.
An affordable way to do this is by doing a self-care ritual routine at home. Turn on some music. Light a candle. Put on your favourite face mask (mine at the moment is Antipodes’ hydrating Aura Honey Mask). Then take the time to indulge in some self-care, me-time in a hot bath.
If you have young kids, then ask your partner or a friend or family member to look after the little ones for 45-minutes while you blissfully unwind. If you want that next level of spoiling’ so that we aren’t referring to cash so directly but more subtly eluding to wanting a more luxurious experience.
