Don’t cut your beauty budget just yet!

If you are feeling the pinch of the festive season spending and thinking about what you can cut back on. WAIT… don’t cut this beauty essential from your list.

Did you know there are health benefits to getting a manicure and pedicure? Yes really...

Not only do they make your hands and feet look fabulous, but they keep you in top shape too!

Daily our hands and feet are exposed to dirt and germs, even though we do bathe and wash our hands, grime can build up, so it’s not such a bad idea to pamper and take care of them.


Here is a list of health benefits:

Exfoliating can help remove dead skin cells, and callous build ups. This process also gives the hands and feet a more attractive appearance.

A professional pedicure can also alert you to any potential fungal infections before it spreads. This is why regular treatments can keep your feet in tip top shape throughout the year.

Increased circulation is another benefit, the gentle massage during your treatment, results in increased blood flow. Those suffering with pain in their hands or ache in the soles of their feet can find relief.

It’s also not all about the physical, your mental health benefits too.  Getting to sit still, relax, unwind and have some ‘me’ time is so important. Relaxation helps with stress relief, which in turn contributes to a healthier you! It also works wonders for your self-esteem, when you have well-groomed hands and feed

La Vita Spas has a range of treatments to chose from, and look out from time to time for some amazing specials to help out your budget.

Life is the Special Occasion 

  Why wait for next week, next month, next year? Why wait for a birthday or anniversary? 

Why wait at all? 

Life is your special occasion to be celebrated everyday. You deserve that “just because” treat. As a working mom of a 9 month old, it is very easy to put myself second, every time – really I don’t mind at all, as I love everything I do for my baby girl. Moms take on everything; the corporate world, planning family meals, shopping, budgeting, the household and remembering to remember to put that date of that “thing” for “what’s its name” in your iPhone calendar that also needs to be charged. 

In the world wind of reports, emails, laundry detergent and spaghetti – you lose yourself. 

Some days I feel frazzled, worn down and running on empty. Sometimes you need to be selfish and spoil yourself. Win a little of yourself back, just for you. 

That is why I love to visit the La Vita Spa at the Palace (in Durban beachfront). It is a short drive to bliss. I can check out from the world for an hour or two. I don’t wait for my birthday or when someone else (aka husband) wants to spoil me. I do it for myself.  

The calm relaxing environment and stunning views of the Indian Ocean, truly captive you.   

 Why wait – life is your special occasion, celebrate it and steal some special time for just because.
