Top Tips for a Healthy New YearLike2

Dating back to 1910 with art nouveau style and decoration, the family-owned Grand Hotel Tremezzo commands one of the most enchanting positions on Lake Como with spectacular panoramic views of both the town of Bellagio, the Riviera delle Azalee and the stunning Grigne Mountains. The historic hotel has 90 rooms and suites, each of which offers guests breathtaking views of the lake or the hotel’s century-old 20,000-sqm park and gardens. The hotel has three swimming pools: Water on the Water, a floating pool in front of the private beach; Flowers Pool, a pool surrounded by its own delightful private gardens; and the indoor T Spa Infinity Pool. They have also partnered with ESPA so guests may indulge in a new and chic spa experience, while a “hidden” T Spa Suite is offered to those looking to experience a whole new private-spa experience.

The start of a new year is one where many are angling to follow a healthier path. But take it from Chiaro Campo, spa manager of the award-winning T Spa at Grand Hotel Tremezzo on Lake Como, Italy: acting towards a 2017 full of happiness and well-being doesn’t have to be an arduous journey. From the hotel’s acclaimed spa – this year alone T Spa has been the winner of the Tatler Spa Award – Glamorous Getaway; the Luxury Spa Award; the Best of the Best Spa – Virtuoso Awards; and the Wellness Travel Award Spa Finder – Best Hidden Gem – she shares 10 simple, enjoyable steps to promote well-being for the next 12 months and beyond.

 

Top Tips for a Healthy and Pampered New Year

1. Wake up slowly
Always eat within an hour of waking up, otherwise your body will become stressed. Upon awakening, drink one glass of water with a fresh squeeze of lemon or lime – of which the health benefits have been known for centuries – and a pinch of Himalayan salt.

2. Preparation makes perfect
Like many other achievements in life, the real secret to healthy, beautiful skin lies in perfect preparation: deep cleansing and exfoliation. Get into the habit of preparing an exfoliator of sea salt and olive oil. Also give your skin space to breathe to reveal its inner radiance, and make it ready for quenching with a nourishing moisturiser.

3. The one-minute body trick
Every morning, dry body-brush yourself – this will significantly improve tone, help banish cellulite and boost cell renewal. Start at your feet and brush in light sweeps in the direction of your heart. Your skin tone will thank you!

4. Be Lazy in the bath
A bath will help rejuvenate the body and detox from the effects of a hectic lifestyle. Choose the extraordinarily pure ESPA aromatherapeutic bath oil and add two cups to a warm bath, then immerse yourself, deeply inhale the aroma, and relax for 20 minutes up to three times a week. The bath oil works as hard to restore equilibrium to the mind as it does to treat the body. Caution: It can be seriously addictive!

5. Eat organically
Try to eat only organic as it means zero chemicals to toxify your body. At the very least choose clean, lean foods and drinks as much as possible. Whether you’re shopping for food or selecting from a menu, always go for the cleanest, most natural-looking food or meal available. When in doubt, eat fish and greens.

6. The darker, the better
Fruits and vegetables are all good for you but as a general rule the darker produce, such as kale and spinach, the better. Dark fruits tend to have thinner skin, so they produce more antioxidants to protect themselves from the sun. Next time you have a sweet craving, eat some in-season thin-skinned fruit, such as berries, apples, pears, cherries or green grapes.

7. Ten-minutes exercise
Regular exercise helps to promote blood flow and increase lean muscle mass. And the more lean muscle mass you have, the less fat/cellulite you will have. I recommend exercising at least three times a week.

8. Make beauty a pleasure
Why should the pursuit of the body beautiful be all self-sacrifice and denial? Skincare should be a pleasure and never a chore. Create your ideal skincare routine with heavenly aromas and lovely textures that will appeal to all your senses – so you’ll love it, every day

9. Skin miracles
We all have times when our skin isn’t at its best; times when special treatments are required. For the best results at Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s T Spa, try the ESPA Skin Radiance Facial, which revitalises tired skin, giving a noticeably brighter and naturally radiant appearance. For the body, I recommend the ESPA Lift & Firm Hip & Thigh treatment, a highly effective, stimulating treatment to target cellulite, fluid retention and uneven skin texture. A course of six treatments is recommended. If you’re unable to get to Lake Como, look for something similar at your usual spa.

10. Prepare to sparkle
Eyes have tales to hide and truths to tell and are always features of rare beauty, so ensure yours look clear, refreshed, bright and endlessly cared for. Achieve this through product solutions such as ESPA Stage Release Eye Moisturiser, which uses natural encapsulation technology to deliver intelligent microspheres of powerful actives over eight hours to target the appearance of lines and wrinkles, whilst hydrating, brightening and safeguarding firmness and elasticity.

Top tip:
It’s all about a happy life. There are no crazy rules, no food-measuring, no calorie-counting. Be kind to yourself and I’ll promise you, this works!

  • My childhood friend of 30 years took this picture of me last week when we drove to Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. We’ve been friends for so long I can’t remember which one of us is the bad influence 😂. It was so random because she kept on insisting that I don’t turn away from the camera and I couldn’t stop laughing before a bee almost attacked me!! So there you go. Happy Tuesday 🇱🇧♥️
  • Ever been to Croatia? What does this place reminds you of?
  • I had a chance to get away into Bekaa Valley. From the 1st century BC, when the region was part of the Roman Empire, the Beqaa Valley served as a source of grain for the Roman provinces. I took Chloè and stayed in a lovely cozy guest house called @al_haush and explored the fields of crops and vineyards. 🇱🇧 I’m so in love with Lebanon 🇱🇧
  • I found this little lake by mistake on the way to Bekaa Valley. I was surprised given that it was in the middle of nowhere and the water was blue and cold! Where would you suggest I explore more in Lebanon? 🇱🇧 #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Some of the greatest sky colors I’ve seen were in Portugal 🇵🇹 Sunset views from @avanilisbonhotel ♥️
Have you been to Lisbon yet?
  • Sunday morning dreaming of being back in Maldives! I’d like to be transported right now! 
This would be my super power wish for the day. 😊 
What would yours be today?
  • It’s the weekend!!! 🇱🇧🇱🇧 Breakfast table at home in Beit Douma prepared by @kamalmouzawak ♥️
What’s your favorite thing on the table?
  • You know what’s the most beautiful feeling in the world? Knowing that both your presence and absence mean something to someone. ♥️
  • The ancient Phoenician wall in Batroun , Lebanon between (3,300 B.C. to 64 B.C.)
Batroun was once one of the most important Phoenician cities in the region and is one of the oldest cities in the world! It is by far, one of my favorite places in Lebanon 🇱🇧
It was super windy that day but I managed to get few shots on my drone until the battery ran out on me while flying!!! I honestly have no idea how it just landed inside the church walls on its own and not in the water!! 😊
  • Faqra ruins, an archaeological site in Kfardebian, Lebanon, with Roman and Byzantine ruins. It’s one of the most important sites of the UNESCO sites. 🇱🇧 I didn’t know which picture to share so I posted both 😊
