This December, we’re tipping tradition it on its head by setting slightly different resolutions for the new year, focussing on beauty on the inside and out, and wellbeing. We’ve all set fitness and career goals in the past which can put unnecessary pressure on us so, inevitably, some of these goals aren’t achieved as they’re  a) unrealistic, b) it makes you feel rubbish about yourself and c) life gets in the way!  At Grafton Spa, we’re saying now is the time to change! Here’s what’s on our list for 2018:

If you’re an avid follower of beauty bloggers and up-to-date with industry news then you’ll be aware of the new facial taking the skincare world by storm – Crystal Clear COMCIT. We’re so pleased the geniuses at Crystal Clear have created such an innovative facial delivery system – and shortened the name to an easy acronym! COMCIT, also known as ‘Cryo-Oxygen Microchannelling Collagen Induction Therapy’ is an anti-ageing skincare facial made up of 4 processes in one effective treatment. Each process is key to rejuvenating the skin and most importantly, boosting collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the elasticity and appearance of your skin. The COMCIT facial is recommended for those wishing to tighten and brighten their skin but also to those considering injectables such as botox and fillers. We believe this facial – applied regularly –will eliminate the need for these invasive skincare solutions.

Do you love aromatherapy massage? Then you’re in for a real treat…

We are thrilled to offer a new bespoke aromatherapy massage at Grafton Spa. Introducing Kokolokahi. Pronounced ‘koko-lo-car-he’, the tongue-twister of a name originates from ‘koko’ or coconut – referring to the rich coconut oil base found in all the sensuous oils and also the Hawaiian word for harmony or ‘lokahi’. These luxurious massage oils are a collection of the purest ingredients based on the 5 elements: Fire, Air, Earth, Water and Spirit. These 5 elements represent our human needs and desires, depending on our mood or emotion and are designed to boost inner peace and a sense of wellbeing. In addition, the coconut, argan and shea oil found in the super blend of oils will leave your skin luxuriously hydrated and deeply conditioned.

We are so thrilled to welcome a new hairstylist to the team at Just4U and Grafton Spa. Sarah started at the salon earlier this month and has already made herself at home, meeting both new and existing hair clients, sharing her expertise and creating stunning hair. For those that haven’t been lucky enough to meet her yet, we thought we’d let you all get to know her with our Meet the Team Q&A.

Before you know it, your diary will be filled with invitations to office Christmas parties, school fundraisers and your partners’ work do – not to mention Christmas catch ups with your nearest and dearest, and we all have that one friend who has a birthday just before Christmas! With so many celebrations in your social calendar between November and December, it’s important to keep on top of a good diet and your skin, nail and hair care. Here are some top tips for making it through the party season. You can do this!

Is it just us or are there so many beautiful pregnant ladies around town at the moment? As the saying goes, “there must be something in the water…” in Potterspury!

With the abundance of glowing femmes visiting our spa, it got us thinking about what it was like – before children – the time and freedom we had to indulge our pastimes and look after ourselves before the arrival of baby No.1. The lead up to labour is full of midwife appointments, confusing paperwork and the longing to see the squirming bundle inside our tummies, so it’s important to use your time wisely to prepare mentally and physically for the joys and tears of motherhood (FYI – nothing can really prepare you!).  If you have just started your maternity leave and are thinking ‘what now?’ then we have compiled a list of things to do before you finally get to meet the amazing little creature that’s been growing inside you for so long…

As the seasons change, so do your skincare needs. We recommend you respond effectively by updating your skincare routine. Have you ever wondered what goes on, beneath the visible layer of your skin? Parisian skincare experts Matis are coming to Grafton Spa on Thursday 12th October to reveal all…

We all know exercise is good for your general health and well being – and it’s no secret at yoga has plentiful health benefits. But can yoga improve the feel and appearance of your skin? It most definitely can! With the weather just turning we have found some clients are coming to us more regularly for nourishing facials, as colder weather can dehydrate and leave your skin feeling a bit under the weather. In light of our recent successful yoga afternoon, here are our top benefits of practising yoga for clear and beautiful skin…

The countdown is on…it’s only a matter of days before the summer holidays are over. Some of us may despair at the thought of the return of the dreaded school run and enduring an empty nest, but many of us are rejoicing at the freedom which ensues when our little darlings are back in the careful hands of their teachers. We thought it would be an appropriate time to write a blog with a list of things to do when your children are back in school – things which aren’t possible when you’re packing in as much activity, day trips and play-dates into the week. Here is our checklist to ensure you regain your freedom and claim back a little piece of YOU…
