With extremely long working hours, strenuous makeup & hair sessions and facing harsh lights – actors readily submit themselves to a variety of spa treatments to unwind. Tinseltown’s resident Venuses indubitably can indulge in some of the best beauty therapies money can buy. But when it comes to well-deserved rest and relaxation, moolah is not what helps them make a choice. Be it a deep tissue massage invoking heavenly absolution or even rituals of hair massage with almond oil, coconut oil hair baths and fragrant spa sessions post work, indulgence is key.
Here is what some of our celebrated beauties prefer for rejuvenation and unwinding…
“I would love to visit a spa as often as I can but with my schedule, I don’t really get a chance to. I enjoy all aspects of a spa experience, whether it is my feet that are overworked or my hair that’s been subject to harshness. But when in doubt, I always opt for the Kerala Ayurvedic Spa treatment at the Kairali Ayurveda Healing Village
“I like the idea of rejuvenating myself every now and then. And because I am on my feet so often, for me, foot massage is the favourite pampering treat. I do frequent the spa at The Oberoi occasionally and also Freedas in Bandra for a rejuvenating face and body massage.”

“I love the concept of rejuvenating through water therapy at the Quan Spa, JW Marriott in Mumbai. A shower always is a stress buster and freshens you up. At the Quan Spa, I give two thumbs up to the Manihi Lagoon Island bath, which uses the rhythm of the water.”
“I love spas that do not have very elaborate stuff as I get very bored during treatments. So I like these quick therapies that make me feel relaxed. The spa at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Gurgaon does an amazing pineapple and coffee scrub and my body actually feels squeaky clean after that! I do a lot of ‘home spa’ treatments on myself, rather regularly. Besan or papaya face clean ups feature on my weekly skincare regime.”
“I am totally a spa person. In fact, I love the idea of spa holidays too, when you can be cut off from the world and pamper yourself! I am aware of all the new treatments in vogue or being talked about and try them out as soon as I possibly can. I tried out the honey scrub, massage and fruit facial at the Marriott in Pune and it was so good.”
