Skin Care Tips for All Skin Types

FacialCleansing, toning, and moisturizing are the basics of good skin care. But are you missing something? Discover three simple steps that are often overlooked.

Why exfoliate?
Exfoliation is the key to vibrant skin. Regular exfoliation remove the hard keratin layer and build up, bringing luminosity and clarify to the skin. For younger skin, exfoliation unplugs pores and keeps the skin clear and smooth. For mature skin, exfoliation is essential to help minimize fine lines, remove dry flakes, and to revive tired skin.

Why use masques?
Using a face masque once or twice per week will dramatically increase the elasticity and health of your skin. Rosewater Spa uses masques that contain high amounts of concentrated vitamins and nutrient-rich ingredients which give additional hydration and firming benefits. Treatment masques can also be used to control skin conditions.

Why use serums, booster-serums, concentrates and oils?
Serums, booster-serums, concentrates and oils infuse the skin with pure vitamins and herbs. They are typically applied as the last step before moisturizing the skin. Booster-serums are versatile. They can be used in numerous way and can also be added to moisturizers and masques for enhanced results. Each ensures deep penetration of active ingredients into the skin to impart a healthy glow from within.

Mythical Mermaids at Rosewater Spa

mermaid beautiful magic underwater mythology being original photMermaids have long captured the imagination of merman and mankind alike and have fascinated us in fairy-tales and movies.

The presence of a Mermaid for a sailor could mean he was about to be saved – OR – that he was about to be taken to the bottom of the sea to drown. Either way guys are gonners when it comes to Mermaids.

In honour of these mythical (but conflicted) creatures of sea, Rosewater Spa created a getaway spa package called, what else, The Mermaid. This glorious getaway includes:

Vichy Salt Glow  •  Seaweed Wrap  •  Mini Facial  •  Seaweed Scalp Treatment  •  Signature Spa Pedicure (for fins)

Jasmine & Melissa Hemsley’s Love Smoothie

Hemsley-Love-SmoothieJasmine and Melissa Hemsley are UK based sisters who believe that changing the way you eat doesn’t have to involve diet and deprivation or be complicated.  Their The Art of Eating Well is a celebration of nutritious food that should be enjoyed everyday, like Chia Chai Butternut Breakfast Pudding and Chicken Tamarind Salad! Here is a recipe for a sweet and creamy Love Smoothie that Melissa Hemsley created with her co-author, fellow foodie and sister, Jasmine.

“Our Love Smoothie isn’t just a pretty drink – the vibrant colour is an indicator of just how good it is for you. The red pigments, high in vitamin C, are a result of master detoxifier, beetroot. We blend beetroot with avocado to make it creamy, while whole oranges provide the zippy zing to cut through the earthy taste of beetroots. A dash of vanilla extract adds a unique flavour and aroma.

We call it a love smoothie because of beetroot’s aphrodisiac properties (it’s been known as nature’s Viagra since Roman times!). The mineral boron plays a significant role in the production of our sex hormones, tryptophan (the precursor to serotonin and melatonin), helps to create a sense of wellbeing and the B vitamin, choline, contributes to a relaxed state of mind and improves blood flow. Avocado makes this smoothie all the more filling thanks to a healthy dose of hormone-balancing natural fats. The antioxidants in oranges fight free radicals and the flavonoids and polyphenols in this zesty fruit can help to fight viral infections; overall benefiting your skin to give you a healthy, glowing complexion from the inside out. So there you have it, this smoothie as well as having all the antioxidant power and nutrients we need for fantastic skin, can very well get you in the mood for romance!

Jasmine & Melissa Hemsley’s bestselling cookbook The Art Of Eating Well includes an entire chapter dedicated to smoothies and juices. Some of their all-time favourites include a Strawberry Mint and Cucumber concoction which is perfectly refreshing on balmy summer days and their Go-To Green Smoothie, the ideal pick-me-up your body needs for a hit of nutrition and hydration. Chop, blend, slurp!”

Ingredients to Make Your Own Love Smoothie
(use organic ingredients where possible)

1 medium-ripe avocado
1 small/medium beetroot
3 medium-sized oranges

Optional: 1 tablespoon of raw honey – depending on the sweetness of the oranges (and your tooth!)

Seeds from half a vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (we like Nielsen Massey)
250ml filtered water


  1. Scrub the beetroot and slice into quarters, or grate if you don’t have a high-powered blender.

  2. Peel the oranges, halve crossways and remove any pips.

  3. Halve the avocado and scoop out the flesh.

  4. Add the beetroots, blood orange flesh, avocado flesh, raw honey (if using), vanilla extract and water to the blender.

  5. Pulse a few times and then blend until smooth.
