Holidays and organic wellness treatments with the essences of Sardinia
“Sardinian Signature”: new beauty elixirs offering scents and natural Sardinian extracts at the SPA at the Hotel Marinedda.
L’Elicriso, the famous Thalasso Centre and SPA at the new 5 star Delphina hotel in Sardinia, the Hotel Marinedda, is an oasis of peace and quiet offering sophistication and sought-after architectural styles.
The British monthly Sunday Times Travel Magazine has selected the Northern Sardinia Wellness Centre as among the best SPAs in the Mediterranean for the characteristics and style of its 4 multi-function pools with different temperatures that allow a customized Thalasso programme where you can pamper yourself with water jets and hydromassage waterfalls.
The mission at the Elicriso Thalasso & Spa centre, to promote the health and well-being of the body with natural ingredients, is demonstrated by the wide range of certified organic products used in many treatments, as well as a careful selection of products that are dye, SLS and paraben free. New on its à la carte menu this year is a special selection of treatments with organic products and natural essences extracted from the elements that are found naturally in Sardinia.
“Sardinian Signature” stands not just for beauty but also bodily health thanks to the beneficial properties of the excellent local products: myrtle, grapes, sea salt, helichrysum and eucalyptus are just some of the natural Sardinian resources used in the special range of facial and body treatments at the Marinedda SPA at Isola Rossa.
The special “Elisir di giovinezza” facial treatment using Cannonau grapes is one of the most frequently requested treatments on the “Sardinian Signature” menu.
Wine therapy, increasingly in vogue in recent years, has its roots in ancient Greece. In recent years, thanks to research undertaken in the Bordeaux region of France, the benefits of grapes in aesthetic terms have been re-evaluated and are especially recommended to prevent skin ageing.
Sardinia is a land rich in vineyards and the Cannonau grape is the most widespread of all. Compared to other grapes the renowned black fruit turns out to be three times richer in polyphenols, multifunctional ingredients contained in the seeds, stems and skin of the fruit. Cannonau grapes have a powerful antioxidant effect on the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and prevents the formation of wrinkles. In the “Elisir di Giovinezza” facial treatment, the soothing and moisturizing action of grapes is linked to the positive cosmetic effects of helichrysum, a fragrant plant that is common on the island which relaxes and regenerates the skin. The exfoliating action is carried out using obsidian, a typical volcanic stone from Monte Arci which is rich in magnesium and iron while oranges and lemons stimulate cell renewal and give radiance to the skin. An idyllic moment dedicated to your face during a relaxing holiday in Northern Sardinia.
