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!

  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’. You just know that any adventure with them is what you crave for and, that no matter what you thought you wanted before, this is better and it’s no longer forcing things. One year ago today since I left, I’m missing my heart in Kenya. 🇰🇪
  • I still can’t get over that crazy sunrise color! A guide to tropical Salalah, Oman with @flydubai 🇴🇲 at @anantarasalalah (Link in bio) Happy Sunday!
  • I hosted the 6th social media workshop in Dubai today with such wonderful entrepreneurs - it lasted 6 hours! Reminded me on how I first started and how much I love my job!! Throwing it back to summer in Portugal where I took two weeks off and reminded myself how much we all need to step back from social pressure once in a while. 
2 more workshops to go for this month! Get in touch if you would like to join ❤️ Happy weekend!
  • Your addiction to over-thinking will come back to haunt you... Less thinking and more living 👊🏻
  • Le Liban 🇱🇧 #Lebanon
  • I found a little oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
What you don’t see on instagram is that I have sunk my feet in the sand so deep many times - ( Now that’s a workout for the year) I had my drone losing balance in high winds which resulted in my heart sinking over a dozen times, and have sand everywhere!! Even between my teeth!! But it’s all good :) Happy Sunday 😊
  • The outdoor season is back in Dubai!!! I’m so happy to have @zeebalife finally united with me! Picking me up when I sink in the sand after she’s done laughing! 😂

  • The beautiful infinity pool at sunrise in Oman at @anantarasalalah
  • Almost 2 years ago when I took this picture after staying a week in @sixsensesninhvanbay in Vietnam. I remember I was debating whether or not I should take the shot because it was done on my iPhone and a broken tripod. Where you following my journey then? It’s feels like another lifetime but I still remember every detail of this trip as if it was yesterday. It’s funny how a single song or a picture can bring back so many memories and how some surprisingly fade so quickly.
  • I’ve got a thousand things to say to you... and a thousands reasons not to...
  • No matter what they say... There is no such thing as work-life balance. Everything worth fighting for, unbalances your life and that's the truth. So you just make it work. 💕
  • What if your pillow could collect all your dreams and in the morning, you can connect it to a screen and watch it all over again?
