Have you ever had that moment when you’re driving and realise you’ve been on autopilot for the last 15 minutes – and you wonder how you made it in one piece? Or when your partner is telling you about their day and you completely zone out halfway through the story? It happens to the best of us. In a society where we’re constantly juggling a million different things (and surgically attached to our phones), it’s no wonder we’re all so distracted. While it’s human nature for our thoughts to wander, this usually means that we’re either stuck in the past or future. The problem with this is that it often results in us missing out on all the good things happening in the present! Luckily, there is a way to train your brain to stay in the ‘right now’ – it’s called mindfulness.
An Experience Every Man Deserves
A traditional Turkish shave gives you a perfectly clean-cut and smooth face, free from razor burns and cuts.
With the use of a sharp open blade called an ustura and luxurious shaving cream, our professional barber leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed, this is then followed by a rich traditional moisturiser which is applied along with hot towels for steam to let your skin breathe, rest and rehydrate. Once you’re cleaned up, enjoy a relaxing head massage…. And finish off with a splash of traditional cologne.
The Shave of a Lifetime….
It really feels like summer is in the air and while we feel high on a big dose of vitamin D, for most of us this brings us to the big question…. Am I prepared to start baring it out?
So, if you are one of those few who have been preening and pampering all winter you'll have nothing to worry about, if on the other hand, smooth skin, hair-free legs and a sun-kissed shimmer were the last things on your mind during the cold winter months here are some basic guide lines you can follow for a smoother transaction into the summer season.
It’s January and it’s Mental Health Awareness Month. We, at Carisma Spa and Wellness, do not think it is a coincidence to start a new year raising awareness on how to keep our mind healthy.
The mind determines all.
Once we are consciously aware of it, befriend it and maintain it well - pruning out negative thoughts, keeping toxic people at arms’ length, and finding silent spaces where to tune into ourselves and connect our mind to our body and soul – we create a balance that shoots up our quality of life.
January feels like the last days of a long, fun-packed holiday. Although still on vacation, you're already thinking about what needs to be done when back home. It's still hot, there's no chance of rain in sight and yet, the summer fun is over. Satisfied with your golden tan, you bid one final 'adiós' to the beach and your bathing suit – and your skin can't be happier. All that exposure to the merciless summer sun left it parched. It's time to focus on helping it recover. Weaving algae and glasswort oil are just what you need to quench its thirst.
Don't you just love it when you come across something so amazing that you feel like you made a grand discovery? From a new method that makes your life so much easier, a shop that's got just the thing you thought was impossible to find, to a highly nutritious ingredient that's also tasty. Whatever it is, discoveries make life all the more exciting. At Carisma Spa, our most recent discovery is PHYTOMER , an exclusive range of skincare products and associated treatments for both men and women that are so effective, we just had to share them with our clients – and we're really excited about it.
The Hammam is a sacred space for those who have experienced the way it transports you into its own world of peace and serenity where time stands still and the body is king. It is a place no one wants to leave and which offers a much-needed refuge from everyday stress. The calming effects of a Hammam treatment go deeper than the skin, and on top of the detoxifying benefits to the body and cleansing of the soul, it makes you unwind and find that place where you can just stop and be.
Health, wellness, wellbeing ... we think we know what they are, but interpretations of how to actually live, achieve and maintain them vary tremendously.
Irrespective of any school of thought you come from, we feel well when our body is nourished and functioning as it should, when we like who we are and what we look like, and we have enough balance between commitments and leisure to cope with life as it comes, taking it in the doses we can deal with.
