Who doesn’t love some birthday pampering? It’s really the one time of the year that you can really splurge on yourself completely guilt free, and why not? You deserve it. Here we’ve listed some great suggestions for pampering yourself this year on your special day. From exfoliating facials, aromatherapy massages and state of the art hair removal with high end Candela and Palomar hair removal systems, we’ve got loads of suggestions to have you looking your best and feeling relaxed:

Manicure and Pedicure

Hands and feet tired and a little sore from those gorgeous by uncomfortable stilettos? Why not treat yourself to a complete manicure and pedicure which includes a paraffin wax treatment. This leaves your hands and feet feeling amazingly soft. Then finish off with some lashings of red or pink polish.


Massages are great and they make ideal birthday gifts. They help you relax and relieve unwanted tension. If you are buying a voucher for a massage as a gift for someone, give them a dollar amount on the voucher rather than a specific service. This way, they can choose exactly what they have done. Massage is very much a personal thing and while some people may like a strong Thai massage others may prefer an aromatherapy massage using oils.


Our face cops the brunt of the sun, makeup and is often the first place that we can visibly see the signs of stress and aging. Facials are a great way to help brighten the skin, and give it that little extra TLC that it needs. Once again there are an array of facials and depending on your skin, you may want to opt for one over the others. Talk to your beautician about which one is best suited to what you want and your skin type.

Hair removal and reduction

Many women are now choosing to have laser hair removal to rid themselves of unwanted hair rather than shaving and waxing. What’s great about this type of hair removal is that it’s more of a permanent solution and will over time see the reduction in the amount of hair that grows back. Investing in having this treatment done is a wonderful gift to give yourself especially if your birthday is just before the warmer months when you will be hitting the beach. One of the most important things to consider when having laser hair removal is the type of systems your beauticians use.
Candela and Palomar systems are popular choices for many beauticians as they are quality machines which have a range of applications and are effective in hair reduction.

There are so many different birthday pampering ideas, it’s hard to list them all. I hope our pick of the top four has given you some useful suggestions for just how you are going to spoil yourself or that special friend on their birthday this year.
