Treatment of the month

The Roslin Beach Hotel in Thorpe Bay has recently introduced new beautiful treatments, perfect for rejuvenating your skin for the summer season. Experience Polynesia, the exotic sensorial spa ritual, inspired by four of the most beautiful islands hidden in the heart of the Pacific Ocean. This luxurious Thalgo Polynesia Spa Ritual treatment is 90 minutes and begins with an azure water foot bath inspired by the crystal blue waters of the Manihi Lagoon to protect and hydrate the skin. Next is the Exotic Island Body Scrub, a gentle vanilla-scented body scrub blended with pure white sand from Bora Bora, sea salt, coconut shell and algo-monoi for a thorough exfoliation of the entire body to leave the skin feeling smooth and soft. The Mahana Massage incorporates a rhythmic Lomi-Lomi massage and warm sand pouches to loosen muscles and nourish the skin. Finally, Polynesian Sacred Oil from Raïatea, the sacred island, is swept over the skin, its subtle golden pearls leaving a sun kissed glow and a delicate scent of flowers and monoi. For information on this treatment, call the Roslin Beach Hotel on 01702 586 375.

How to create the versatile top-knot: Step-by-step

This step by step is for the simple, yet effective top knot. A great style for any occasion.

• Use a dry shampoo and spray the roots of your hair and brush through — this will add some texture to your hair making it easier to create the look.

• Add a small amount of oil through the middle and ends of your hair and comb smooth.

• Comb the hair back into a smooth, secure high ponytail on top of your head. Spray any flyaways with a light hold hairspray.

• Take the ponytail and tie your hair in a knot onto the base of the head. Secure the edges with kirby grips.

• Take the remaining loose end of the ponytail and wrap it around the base of the knot and secure.

• Finish the look with a light shine spray (we recommend Wella Sebastian Shine Shaker).
