Oh yes, think sunshine and smiles and cheeks that glistens in the rays… but if you want to get the glow, you have to glow from the inside too! You have to look at your mind, body and soul. So how do you get the ‘glow’? Form an orderly queue for our 8 tips on how to get glowing from the inside and out …
- Come in for ‘A Quickie’

2. Get a Massage
One way to boost your serotonin (the happy hormone) is surely to get a massage! Research shows that therapeutic massage stimulates our central nervous system to produce beneficial hormones whilst at the same time reduces the negative hormones that have a detrimental effect on us.

For a great pick-me-up, try our ‘Body Re-Charge‘ massage, which uses carefully selected essential oils of Pink Grapefruit, Rosemary, Juniper Berry & Pine. You will emerge feeling relaxed, revitalised and full of energy.

3. Feel the heat – have a Sauna and/or Steam
The heat from a sauna ‘soothes your nerve endings and warms and relaxes muscles, in turn relieving the tension from your body’. (Source Care2HealthyLiving)
The steam room ‘helps to open up airways which improves your breathing and alleviates congestion. The wet heat from the steam room thins and opens the mucous membranes in the body, which helps to relieve pressure’. (Source Care2HealthyLiving)
Benefits for your skin? Both Sauna & Steam ‘open up your pores and increase blood and lymphatic circulation, which will effectively aid in softening your skin. You will notice a healthy pink glow in your skin, which will make you look younger, so not only will you feel good but you will also look rejuvenated’. (Source Care2HealthyLiving)
Get your body feeling fresh, smooth, moisturised and soft. Try our ‘Smooth Operators‘ Phytomer body exfoliation treatment, which uses grainy sea salt scrub, containing ocean granules which buff away dead skin cells. An application of quenching moisturisers follows, leaving even the thirstiest of skin feeling totally renewed.
5. Fake a tan!
We all feel better with a tan & although we all need some Vitamin D and to spend a bit of time in the sun – we don’t want to get too much and cause damage to our skin! Well thank goodness for fake tan! Try our ‘Get Glowing Self Tan Treatment‘ which includes full body exfoliation and uses our ‘Vita Liberata’ self-tanning treatment.
6. Take some time out to relax …
Relaxation has many benefits, some of which include ‘prevention of cumulative stress, increased energy, improved concentration, reduction of some physical problems, and increased self-confidence’ (Source: Dartmouth). Taking time to relax is essential for our emotional and physical well-being. Our relaxation room at Spa Sirene is the perfect space to take some time to yourself and practice some relaxation; silhouettes of trees cover the walls coupled with gentle light cycles that slowly change.

7. Get some fresh air
Research shows that ‘exposing your lungs to fresh air can help to relieve stress and anxiety’ (Source Benenden Health). Oxygen is thought to affect the levels of serotonin released in the body, in turn, contributing to feelings of happiness and relaxation.
Being in Jersey, we have the added advantage of the fresh sea air! Get out and explore the Island, let the waves crash at your feet and take in the vast coastline. Check out this walking guide to Jersey.
Your skin can be affected by ‘the amount of oxidative stress in your body. Oxidative stress occurs when the body’s antioxidant defences cannot completely repair the damage that free radicals cause to cells’. (Source: Healthline)
Regular moderate exercise can increase your body’s production of natural antioxidants, which help protect cells. Exercise can also ‘stimulate blood flow and induce skin cell adaptations that can help delay the appearance of skin aging’ (Source: Healthline) – now that’s what we like to hear! Take advantage of our fully equipped gym or get out and explore the local area by foot!
