A hedonistic, globe-trotting lifestyle is all very well, but sometimes even all those luxury hotels and exotic restaurants can take it out of you. When the high-thread-count Egyptian bed linen begins to chafe and you’re feeling the effects of one cocktail too many, there’s nothing that soothes the soul more than a relaxing spa session. Inspired by the age-old curative properties of Hungarian thermal waters, the Budapest spa Omorovicza (pictured below) has harnessed the dermatological benefits of these mineral-rich resources and developed Mineral Cosmetology, a mineral delivery system that claims to deliver long-lasting improvements to the condition of your skin. These treatments are now available in some of the top locations around the world, so if you have just stepped off a plane to New York, you can pick up their products in stores such as Bergdorf Goodman or have spa treatments at New York spa St Regis, while on this side of the pond, if you find yourself choked with the fumes of London Town, pop into Harrods, Harvey Nichols or Liberty for some lotions and potions, else check yourself into one of the spas that provide Omorovicza treatments (Beauty Works West in Notting Hill or The Glow Urban Spa on Motcomb Street). Omorovicza facial and body treatments are also available in select Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons, Rosewood and Oberoi properties worldwide, so there’s no excuse for any self-respecting hedonist on the move to be without a beautifully buffed body and silky smooth skin.
