Don’t forget to book in for a treatment – the spa works with brands including Carita, Elemental Herbology and ila. The Flow Wellbeing treatment combines massage and lymphatic drainage, with smooth, flowing movements.

Telegraph - The Testing Panel: body scrubs for normal skin

"Best treat: Ila body scrub for blissful experience, £63 for 250g, ila-spa.
Promising not only exfoliation, but also a strengthening of my aura, I thought Ila was all a load of codswallop. And then I tried it. A little of the salt crystal scrub goes a long way while the oils - jasmine and rosehip seed - induce instant relaxation and calm. They advise use in the bath too, which gets my vote."

"Why it's easy A sort of pretend traditional-Cypriot village, which sounds contrived but is utterly charming, Anassa is set in a sun-washed corner of Europe a 4.5-hour flight from the UK. It's family-run and smart as a pin, with armfuls of bushy-tailed staff, a cracking kids' club (courtesy of Scott Dunn), various pools and a don't-care- if-they-throw-a-wobbler attitude that's supremely relaxing.

What's in it for you Great design, smooth service and an elegant beach club, plus a proper spa (don't miss the Ila facials)." Read more.

Daily Mail - My Lightbulb Moment: Beauty Pioneer Denise Leicester

"As a child, I used to pick all the roses from our garden to try to make my own rose oil.

When I was 12, my mother bought me the Vogue Body and Beauty Book, which had hundreds of formulations for home beauty products. I drove her round the bend concocting them.

I knew even then that I wanted to care for people, so I trained as a nurse at the Middlesex Hospital in London, though I kept my firm belief in the power of natural therapies, particularly massage, aromatherapy and reflexology." Read more.

"I was booked in for an Ila Spa Kundalini Back Massage (75 mins) which was actual pure bliss. To start the therapist gave me a foot massage using a foot scrub then I laid face down on the massage bed for the core back massage (I asked for medium pressure which was just perfect).

This was followed by Marma therapy, chakra balancing with warm herbal poultices and ending with a soothing leg massage. After having plenty of massages before, I can honestly say I’ve never had one that made me feel so relaxed (I may have woke myself up with a snore), I would definitely book this ritual again."
