We don’t need to shout from the rooftops to tell you that summer is here. With day time temperatures soaring up to 36 degrees (what happened to our good old maritime weather?), there is now no excuse not to head to a spa for an hour or two of cooling massages, rejuvenating body polishes and even hydra (water) facials.
