As much as I love winter it does have a downside– it is accompanied by the dreaded flu season. To combat this, I have created my own ritual for staying healthy all winter long: A daily cup of hot ginger tea, regular visits to the sauna and (my favorite part) a visit to the Schnitzler Beauty Lounge under the roof of the Breidenbacher Hof, a Capella Hotel.
My personal slogan to survive the winter is “Do something good to your body and your body will be good to you!“.
I start with ginger tea, because it is really one of the best ways to strengthen your immune system and to feel revitalized. Ginger tea is also said to reduce inflammation, improve circulation and relieve stress. Not to mention, it warms me up from the inside and tastes perfectly seasonal! Definitely a necessary boost to my winter routine.
The sauna also has great health benefits. Like ginger tea, saunas are said to relieve stress, help with circulation and bolster immunity. For me, visiting the sauna is the best way to shut off mentally as well. The heat and humidity leave no space for busy thoughts and I leave feeling brand new. While a trip to the sauna may seem like a luxury, building it into my winter routine is truly priceless.
Of course there is nothing like a visit to the spa to really keep me mentally and physically healthy through the winter months. That’s why the changing winter treatments at the Schnitzler Beauty Lounge are a must. My current favorite? The “La Prairie 24-carat gold luxury facial treatment.” Just as Dusseldorf glows with Christmas cheer this time of year, so does this treatment! Why? Well, it is a “Pure Gold Radiance“ facial treatment. It takes just 100 minutes to leave you fully relaxed and rejuvenated like a brand new person. The experience leaves you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the holiday hustle!
