Diamond Dust Facial: Yes they are a real thing!
Do you ever have a sudden and irresistible desire to do something that feels like a whole new level of opulence?
I spend so much time worrying about the future, being careful with my money and saving for the future that its impossible to really ‘live for the day’. It’s called being sensible I suppose and though I agree we do need to spend the majority of our time being a bit careful, I do think that in order to keep ourselves feeling alive, we must giver ourselves a treat every now and then.
A holiday is one such treat and arguably the greatest treat of them all. But I’m not talking about that kind of treat today. I’d call a holiday a necessity, a lovely necessity, but necessary all the same. I for one would be miserable without them!
I’m talking about those times when the chance presents itself to go one step further. To do something that lets us hold up our heads and say: “Today, I lived. Big time!”
On one such day I drank a delicious shot of tequila that had gold flakes in it. That felt pretty amazing. I also remember being at a party where after finishing supper we didn’t wash up, we smashed the plates and moved on with our evening. What a thrill – I can see why that caught on in Greece!
On holiday not too long ago I bathed in goat’s milk and on another occasion, I slept on a bed covered – and I mean covered – in rose petals.
I thought I’d struggle to find something to top all of these but, oh no, dear reader, I’ve managed it!
Have you ever heard of a thing called a Diamond Dust facial? I had not. I had to read it several times to even believe there was such a thing!
This isn’t a fancy marketing ploy by the way, it is a purely factual name to describe what is on offer. And on offer (I’m going to have to repeat it because I’m still astonished) is a Diamond Dust facial.
Urso Hotel and Spa in Madrid has teamed up with Spanish skincare specialist Natura Bisse (winner of best luxury spa brand in 2012 and 2013 thanks very much) to offer treatments that combine the latest scientific innovation with unadulterated relaxation.
But most importantly they put diamond dust… on your face. The results my research tells me is incredible sparkling skin. As it should after a diamond treatment!
I’m going to Madrid and I’m going to get that facial so I’ll let you know how it goes.
In the meantime I’d love to hear your tale of opulent holiday behaviour. When did you do something that gave you that naughty tingle that comes with such a treat?
