Spa Claremont Promotes Weekday Wellness

tibetan-spa-treatmentclaremontSpa Claremont at The Claremont Resort & Spa (Berkeley, CA) is giving clients a reason to pamper themselves all week long with the Weekday Wellness services. Available Monday through Thursday beginning June 1, Spa Claremont will offer a different signature treatment for $99 each day, designed to soothe and improve the mind and body. On Face It Mondays, clients can receive a Ginseng Herbal Facial; on Tips to Toes Tuesdays, a classic manicure and pedicure is offered; on Wrap Up Wednesdays, clients can indulge in the Moor Than Mud Body Wrap; and on Therapeutic Thursdays, clients can ease aches and pains with the Therapeutic Massage.

In addition, when clients come in for a Weekday Wellness service, they are
invited to partake in the Pre-Spa Hydrotherapy Ritual, which is a
combination of water-based treatment to help spa-goers increase circulation
and awareness and intensify the effects of treatments. While this promotion
is a great deal for all spa-goers, stay-at-home moms get even more for their
money because the resort offers complimentary childcare for up to three
hours with each spa treatment booked. Now that’s what I call money well
spent!

Bad Hair Days

basics_mainI’ve always been a no-muss, no-fuss kind of girl, which means that any hairstyle requiring more than a rudimentary brushing is definitely not for me. That’s not to say I don’t occasionally pull out the hairdryer and treat my tresses to their fair share of damage. However, considering the fact that my typical styling routine is limited to no more than five minutes a day, I’d like to think the harm I’m causing is minimal. According to a recent Dove Hair Care Study, it looks like my low-maintenance routine may be the way to go. Conducted by research consulting firm Strategy One, the online survey involving 1,000 women between the ages of 18 and 64 found that, on average, their daily hair routine took approximately 35 minutes, 30 of which were spent on damage-causing activities. Unfortunately, hair brushing (of which I engage daily) topped the list with 82 percent of the women reporting they brush daily, if not more. Sixty percent of the women blow dry, curl, or flat iron their hair at least once a week, which can cause up to 33 percent more damage. Ponytail holders, used by nearly half the respondents, also proved to be a major culprit when it comes to causing damage. While I don’t foresee many women giving up their blow dryers or flat irons any time soon, there are no shortage of products available to treat the breakage, split ends, and damage caused by every day styling. With that in mind, no one need ever suffer another bad hair day.
