The best treatment to revitalise your skin during summer is at Bahía Wellness Retreat

Discover how to regain the splendour of your skin after sun exposure during summer thanks to the Aloe Vera and Banana Leaves Ritual at the Bahía del Duque spa

Summer brings days of radiant sun and unforgettable moments by the sea. During this time of year, our skin is more exposed to the impact of solar radiation and, therefore, in the final stretch of the summer season it is time to give skin the care it deserves.

In addition to the use of highly protective sun creams, it is important to consider the introduction of certain specific components, especially suitable for this period, with the aim of restoring skin after sun exposure. A great ally to help you to achieve this is Aloe Vera.

The main appeal of this ingredient is its capacity to soothe and moisturise irritated skin after sunbathing. It has a cooling effect and immediate relief from sunburn, allowing us to enjoy summer without the discomfort associated with red and sensitive skin. Also, it acts as a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals, helping to prevent premature skin ageing caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation.

This highly beneficial component is the base of the body treatment with which we aim to restore your skin: the Aloe Vera and Banana Leaves Ritual of Bahía Wellness Retreat, the spa at Bahía del Duque.

This luxury hotel, located at Costa Adeje, on the shore of Playa del Duque beach, in Tenerife, is the perfect setting for enjoying this reparative beauty ritual. Recommended after long sun exposure, it uses natural ingredients from the island and consists of the application, first, of a regenerative Aloe Vera face mask. Then, the body is wrapped in cooling and soothing banana leaves and a complete facial treatment is carried out. The result is a high level of moisturising over the entire body.

Lasting for 120 minutes and priced at €240, this ritual offers an experience of luxury and personalised care that is replicated in all the treatments at Bahía Wellness Retreat.

This oasis of well-being has an outdoor thalassotherapy circuit with seawater taken from the Atlantic Ocean. Its high concentration of minerals gives it unique and very beneficial properties for skin and health.

Named the Best Destination Spa at the Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence 2023, Best Wellness Experience 2022 at the Beyond Luxury Awards, and Spain’s Best Hotel Spa 2022, at the World Spa Awards, Bahía Wellness Retreat offers you the best body, facial and massage treatments to ensure that wellbeing is complete and thus guarantee you fine-tuning to restore skin damaged by sun exposure.
