Ingredients like caviar, Ayurvedic herbs and vitamins boost beauty and battle against ailments including fine lines, acne and discoloration. These spas come with great bonuses as well with some offering evening and weekend hours, bonus treatments to accompany facials (hand massages, feet massages, reflexology) and consultations to keep the good looks up from home.
