Best for ageing skin: Bellefontaine “New Skin” Renewing Treatment, £180 for 1h30

Spa Iluminata is one of London’s best-kept secrets. It combines ancient techniques, the healing and restorative powers of nature and the most advanced techniques of modern science, to offer unique holistic treatments for body and soul. The spa’s Bellefontaine “New Skin” Renewing Treatment is a great treatment if you’re concerns with wrinkles, though to be honest all the facials are excellent.

Collected at the heart of plants, these give a huge boost to your skin’s stem cells, leaving your face feeling plumper than when you first came through the door.
