Let’s be honest, most of us feel we look our best when our skin has a healthy glow, but as we get older and wiser we learn that baby oil and zero SPF does more harm than good in the long run. Forget the nasty burns, wrinkles, and sun spots – what we really need to worry about is skin cancer. May’s Melanoma Awareness Month always has us here at Spafinder Wellness 365 thinking seriously about sun safety which is why we love the latest offering at Anantara Spas in the Maldives!
What if you could get the glow you’re after on vacay while maintaining a customized level of protection from the sun? That’s precisely what Anantara Spa and COOLA, one of our very favorite organic sun care lines, is aiming to do with their safe tanning program for guests. Guests who wish to participate in the COOLA Sun Care Treatment Program will first go through a detailed skin analysis to determine their skin type and SPF requirement. Professional skin preparation and soothing after-sun treatments are performed by therapists in spa treatment suites or even in the guest’s private villa.
The 60-minute Morning Sun Soother ($85+) works to prep skin for a day of catching rays pool- or beach-side! It begins with a coconut and mint scrub and wrap followed by a pre-sun care facial, and finishes with an application of COOLA Sun Protector and Sun Care COOLA SPF body treatment. Do you often forget to reapply? The COOLA Sun Spa Cabana($110+) is definitely for you! An expert will reapply your COOLA SPF Body Spray every three hours following your Morning Sun Soother! Bye-bye sunburns!
End your fun-in-the-sun with the 60-minute Sundowner Recovery Remedy which treats your skin with a Recovery Body Aloe Sun Soother, Post Recovery Facial Sun Soother, and Post Body Recovery Application – all made that much better with a head, neck, and shoulder massage! Select from the three treatments or create a combination of all three for $150+.
