For a Mother’s Day treat, book a Diamond Utopia Facial at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London
Does your job require an ability to juggle many different roles, survive on little sleep and be available for your boss at any given time, day or night? Yes, that’s right: it’s motherhood. Spoil the mother in your life this month with a Gaylia Kristensen anti-ageing Diamond Utopia Facial from The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London. Frankly, just stepping over the threshold of The Spa feels like a treat. With the cocooning low light, you can feel your shoulders drop automatically. That, combined with the aromatherapy-infused air, pressure-point reflexology slippers and refreshing spearmint tea, heralds the start of the stress relief. This facial is a weary mother’s dream: every one of your senses is tended to. You lie down on a heated bed while a highly-skilled therapist applies the most wonderful-smelling orange blossom cleanser and begins to massage and scrub away the fine lines and under-eye bags that would mark a mum out in a line-up. The pièce-de-resistance of this therapy is the diamond collagen infusion mask, which encourages regeneration of skin cells and infuses your skin with a luminescent radiance that would put Elizabeth Taylor’s best-beloved Krupp in the shade. So come on, razzle dazzle your mum this March. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, after all.
