What Is a Day Spa?

You’ve seen them in the movies. Maybe you’ve heard people at work, school, or even the grocery store talk about them. But you aren’t really sure what happens at a day spa. You are far from alone, and, sadly, because people don’t know what they’re all about, they miss out. If you are curious about day spas, read on.

Skin Care

Any good day spa will offer many options for skincare. From facials to treatments for dry skin and vitamin deficiency issues, day spas are known to help you walk out looking fresh. Maybe you struggle with clogged pores and are looking for help with acne or skin exfoliation. A day spa will offer licensed professionals who can help you out and will even pluck your brows.

LED therapy, chemical peels, and micro abrasion facials are just a few of the skincare options offered at most day spas. Whether you struggle with blackheads or just want a lift, spas give the opportunity for this with experts who can send you home with easy beauty skincare regimens.

Hair Care

There aren’t many forms of relaxation quite like having your hair styled and cut in a professional salon chair from Keller International. Many day spas offer full hairdressing services. Whether your stress comes from owing the IRS, your marriage, or a nonprofit organization you’re working so hard to get off the ground, taking the time to get a new style in a relaxing place with many beauty options is a must for some. Keller International makes the most luxurious salon chairs, so you can lay back and relax with your feet on the footrest and your hair in the hands of a professional barber. Whether hoping for a pixie cut or just a trim, talking to a spa hairstylist could be step one in feeling rejuvenated.


Day spas often offer full massages for people looking to relax or even struggling with disabling chronic conditions. Whether in New York City or a small town, most spas offer a variety of massage options. Many who use them say they leave the spa feeling more optimistic and energy to tackle the world outside of these luxury oases.

Nails and Make-Up

If nails are your thing, day spas are great for manicures and pedicures too. With trained nail professionals on hand, you can get your nails done for you while sipping tea, coffee, or a number of free beverages and treats spas will generally have ready for you. Most spas offer full and partial manicures. Whether gel or acrylic, licensed professionals can get your nails up to par in any color or style you choose.

Wraps and Waxes

Wraps, full body and Brazilian waxes, lotions aimed at supplementing dehydrated skin, and more can be found in nearly every day spa. Whether there with friends for relaxation or even to cash in a gift certificate about to run dry, your trip to a day spa can be just about anything you want.

Before signing right up, give your local day spa a call and see what they have to offer. Ask about the entire staff and what their experience is. Inquire about packages, essential nutrients and tell them what you’re looking for. Meant to help with self-care and to give you an escape, these spas specialize not only in beauty but in the overall experience. Aromatherapy, tubs, and saunas are often found in spas too. How you dress could depend on what’s offered so do your research ahead.

If you still aren’t sure, bring a friend. Nothing is as bonding as sharing a new experience. Whether an expert or a newbie too, he or she will likely enjoy the excuse for pampering. Whatever you do, bring an open mind and leave your worries at the door. The world outside can wait and by taking the time to take care of you, you’ll come out better for it.
