I can't be the only person out there who failed to keep up a strict winter skin routine of regular exfoliation combined with dedicated sessions of slathering my dehydrated skin with ultra-hydrating lotions and potions. So, if like me you're looking for a magical quick fix to whip winter-skin back into summer-shape, don't worry, there are some fabulous skin-moisturising treatments out there from wraps to help rejuvenate tired skin, to full-body buffing and hydrating therapies. Here are ten of my favourite treatments in great spas across the UK.
The Devonshire Spa

Elemis have some wonderful therapies and their Exotic Coconut Rub and Milk Ritual Wrap/Float is a magic bullet for parched skin. Soak up the benefits of this relaxing treatment at this gem of a spa in a unique venue on the edge of the 33,000 acre Bolton Estate. Nourishing milk bath is drizzled on your body followed by a softening Balinese coconut rub combined with a facial massage and scalp treatment.

The Oxford Belfry

Tap into ancient Egyptian beauty wisdom with a session of fangotherapy - a mud treatment - at the Oxford Belfry's spa in the heart of the tranquil Oxford countryside. A Marine Mud Envelopment will rehydrate your dry sky leaving your feeling body nourished and petal soft. Lie back and let your skin drink in the healing marine minerals in the mud leaving you feeling relaxed and looking great.

The Grange Spa

It doesn't get much more indulgent than a Germaine de Capucinni Smooth as Chocolate body treatment, a full-body cocoa exfoliation which will leave your skin soft and hydrated and put a smile on your face as it smells of gorgeous calorie-free chocolate! Try one at the Grange spa in Sleaford, post-spa snuggle up in the Scandinavian-style relaxation room.

Ockenden Manor Hotel & Spa

Enjoy the very best of the old and the new at Ockenden Manor with its ultra-modern spa built in a 19th century walled garden. Try an exotic Ila Manipura treatment which takes in a Himalayan salt scrub to exfoliate and a balancing massage to stimulate "solar vitality" from within. This unique treatment uses Himalayan herb poultices which are applied to the 10 'petals' of the solar plexus to restore your vitality.

Spa Illuminata

Take a journey to Madagascar - in the heart of Mayfair - with a Red Island Ritual treatment. Discover the scents of this tropical island's rich and vibrant wild nature with an exfoliating fruit seed scrub, then a cocooning massage combining the skilled hands of your therapist and a traditional acacia wood massage tool, all working together to give you silky-soft rejuvenated skin.
