At long last spring is finally here, and those bodies that have been hiding under thick winter jumpers are set to see some sun. While there is no denying a bit of warmth on your skin makes you feel amazing, the thought of baring those arms, legs and feet may leave some of us in a bit of a sweat. That’s why Secret Oasis Spa is giving you the low down on those spring body ‘must haves’ so you can enjoy the warm weather without a care in the world.
If you are looking for that fresh, spring look then going for a French manicure / pedicure is a must. Not only does it scream that classic chic style (which will match any outfit) but you can mix the look for a more modern twist. Why not add rhinestones for that special occasion, or even swap your nude colours for something a bit brighter to reflect your personality.
Going French is a great option for the spring. And for those getting their toes out for the first time in a while, a luxury spa pedicure to help soften skin and make feet feel amazing (after a winter clad in boots) is positive heaven.

Yes it’s time to get those legs back out and we all dream of having perfect pins. If you have been neglecting the razor for a while, or just want a longer lasting hair removal treatment, now is the time to consider waxing.
With a really good and experienced waxing therapist, you’ll find it doesn’t hurt half as much as you are expecting and the results are really worth it. Imagine weeks of hair-free legs, no more sweating in jeans while you friends wear floaty, cool dresses and the new spring wardrobe you can show off!
Before you wax, or even consider going near fake tan you need to exfoliate. Exfoliation removes dead skin, leaving your skin feeling smoother, fresher and allows products (such as moisturisers, serums, facial treatments and fake tan ect.) to absorb into the skin more successfully.
While there are many products on the market to help us all exfoliate at home, where is the fun in that? Why not treat yourself to a full on spa treatment such as our Exotic Lime and Green Scrub Glow. After light body brushing, warm oil is drizzled luxuriously over the body. Skin is deeply cleansed, leaving it silky-smooth and glowing. Find out more about our Exotic Lime and Green Scrub Glow.
Slap it on
Not the makeup, but the sun lotion. You’d be surprised how quickly you can burn (whatever your skin type) and as we all know, sunburn ages skin, along with increasing your risk of skin cancer. So don’t be shy with the suncream, slap it on and make sure your everyday face cream of choice includes an SPF of 15 or more to protect your skin. Invest in a good aftersun and body moisturiser too.
