Well-Known & Obscure Spa Treatments

When you think about spas, what's the first thing that comes to mind? For many, it's thoughts of facials, massages, and mani/pedis. However, despite those that are well-known, there are many unique unheard of spa treatments. In this guide, we're covering both the well-known and obscure spa treatments you can experience at your cruise ship spa the next time you cruise.


Some of the most popular treatments people receive at spas are facials. Aestheticians use various products for exfoliating, massaging, moisturizing, peeling off dead skin, and steaming your facial skin. In addition to unclogging pores, facials also help enhance blood circulation. You'll find that some facial treatments are specifically for addressing dark circles and eye puffiness.

Eyebrow Enhancements

One of the most popular eyebrow enhancement spa treatments involves micro-blading. However, there's much apprehension and skepticism about this treatment. As a result, ombre brow is a new technique that's trending. The process involves using engraved needles that create a soft and moderate brow darkening.

Volcanic Skincare

When someone hears about a volcano, the last thing they typically think about is skincare. There's an emerging trend in using volcanic minerals to enhance skincare. These minerals include iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium chloride, and sulfur. These are said to be great for reducing inflammation and detoxifying your skin.

Mud Therapy

For many years, hammam beds, mud therapy, and saunas have circulated through spas for relaxation. As people realize their benefits, these treatments are growing in popularity. Often used to help draw impurities from the skin, boost your immune system or simply offer you a more relaxed state to achieve a better night's sleep. In addition mud therapy is thought to help aid in the temporary relief of pain from arthritis and even improve skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Yoga Skin

Yoga skin is a treatment that gives your skin a fresh, glowing, and lush feeling. While this is a popular spa treatment, you can replicate similar results when you return home using products you have in your home. These products include facial oil, glow drops, foundation, and liquid illuminator.

The fast-paced world we're living in today means it's challenging to predict daily activities, stress levels, and health outcomes. Trends in the spa industry are continually evolving. Now is your time to take advantage of what they have to offer on your next cruise.
