In our final installment of this Spa Sundays series, where we create awareness around Stress National Awareness Month, we speak to Simon Marxer, the Corporate Director of the luxurious Miraval Resorts.
How do spa treatments directly correlate to stress relief & what are the benefits?
Enjoying a spa treatment is an excellent way to relieve the stresses of everyday life. Not only do spa treatments pamper the body but they also rejuvenate the mind, helping guests to be present and to fully unwind. Depending on the treatment, certain techniques can help eliminate toxins from the body, decrease inflammation and reduce stress through the power of touch. Just being in a spa surrounded by the relaxing scents, serene music and calming atmosphere helps guests shift into a more relaxed and centered mindset.
What are your favorite beauty products?
At Miraval, I have been introduced to a variety of best-in-class products that have made their way into my skincare routine. Dr. Dennis Gross, ESPA, RedFlower, EmerginC and Body Bliss all create incredible, quality products that I have used to address a variety of my skincare needs.
Can you reveal your most popular skincare treatments? And how they can actually help reduce stress and impact anti-aging efforts.
At Miraval we are lucky to offer a wide variety of skincare treatments that truly resonate with guests. Recently, guests have been enjoying the Desert Rose Raindance Facial which uses cool rose quartz crystals to soothe away stress and help tone and lift the facial contours for firmer and more radiant skin. Another popular skincare treatment at Miraval is the Exclusive Renew and Restore Facial Series which features two treatments that incorporate micro-exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and a customized facial with a boost of medical-grade ingredients to enhance anti-aging results and restore skin’s youthful radiance.
What do you do to kick stress every day? Share your daily habits with us, from beauty to nutrition to ‘me time’.
Each day I strive to embody Miraval’s philosophy of living a life in balance. I exercise regularly, maintain a healthy diet, get adequate rest and take care of my body and mind. It’s so easy to be mindful while working at Miraval but I still take time to do the things I love in order to recharge and refocus on what matters most.
Why do you think Dr. Gross skincare is so good? Share results have you seen or experienced.
I love Dr. Gross’ skincare line because it offers an exceptional array of gentle yet extremely effective products that utilize a variety of powerful, state-of-the-art ingredients. After using Dr. Gross’ products, most guests notice a brighter, refreshed and more radiant looking complexion.
