When it comes to improving the health of our skin, we often look to a range of lotions and potions that promise the world: Remove fine lines! Brighten! Tighten! Plump! And while there is no doubt modern skin care can provide many incredible benefits, there are also many tried and tested natural ways to improve skin health.

One of the most effective ways to achieve healthy, glowing, natural skin is to go for treatments that focus on your whole body, that go beyond a simple facemask or body scrub. And really, to get that awesome skin we all dream of, one the best things you can do is opt for a professional spa package which combines multiple treatments.

The best approach for glowing skin

Achieving happy, glowing, radiant skin requires a combination of treatments that address your skin in different ways. Some treatments detoxify, while other rejuvenate and regenerate.To achieve optimum skin health you should look for spas that offer packages that include treatments such as:

  • bathing in hot mineral-rich waters
  • steam treatments
  • cooling waters
  • mud baths
  • massage.

All of these tried and tested treatments are beneficial for the skin because they allow pores to open, eliminate toxins, exfoliate, deeply nourish and moisturise and improve elasticity and blood circulation.

The best spa in Melbourne for natural skin health

Arguably the best spa in Melbourne for natural skin care treatments, Spa De Marrakech offers a range of deep cleansing treatments and Hammam rituals in a beautiful day spa in the Dandenong Ranges. Treatments focus on providing you with a combination of steam, exfoliation and massage.

Traditional Hammam rituals are ancient Morroccan beauty rituals combining bathing and exfoliation and were developed to deeply cleanse and moisturise the skin.

Here we look at how some of the treatments offered at Spa De Marrakech that are beneficial to natural skin health.

Roman Bathhouse

The Roman Bathhouse in Spa De Marrakech’s indoor bathing pool has natural mineral waters heated to 39 degrees. The health and wellness benefits of bathing in mineral water are widely recognised. But there are also skin benefits! The hot temperature of the water opens your pores and softens dead skin, so it is easily exfoliated. The minerals present in the water can help with inflammation and also promote youthful looking skin.

Steam Temple

The luxurious steam room is a gleaming mosaic chamber for one or two people. As with mineral bathing, the heat opens your pores, encouraging detoxification. When you warm your skin to the point of perspiration it helps to clean out pores and stimulate cell renewal. Skin feels softer and is more supple after spending time in the steam room.

Mud bath

Though covering yourself in mud may seem counterintuitive for glowing skin – just trust us! At Spa De Marrakech, after spending time in the steam room, your body is covered with clay from the Moroccan Atlas Mountains in one of our most romantic, deep cleansing spa packages. Clay improves skin by helping to remove oils and dirt from pores, leaving the skin incredibly clean and smooth.


Massage has many health benefits and is well-known for its ability to promote relaxation and wellness. But it’s also incredibly effective for improving skin health. After receiving an aromatherapy massage you will see instant benefits from massage oil which, as it is massaged into the skin, helps to hydrate the upper layers of skin. Massage also increases the production of natural oils in your skin, helping improve your skins suppleness for days and weeks after a treatment.


We don’t need to tell you the benefits of a good facial. Spa De Marrakech offers a range of anti-ageing facial treatments to deeply nourish your skin, using natural products to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The radiant Date Facial includes a creamy mask, infused with date extract. Dates have been known to hydrate even the driest of complexions for thousands of years and this facial treatment will leave your skin supple and reinvigorated.

Indulge in a luxurious spa package at the best spa in Melbourne

Known by many to be ‘the best spa in Melbourne’, Spa De Marrakech has designed a series of spa packages – all tailored at providing luxury, relaxation and, you guessed it, superior skin health. Each treatment uses natural products and ancient cleansing rituals to deeply cleanse and nourish you’re your whole body.

Here’s a glimpse at two of the most luxurious skin treatments available from our spa menu:

The Arabian Steam Temple includes spending time in a steam room to open pores and detoxify the skin, then covering your body with clay to cleanse and tighten pores. After rinsing off in a beautiful rain shower, you then have the option of a full body massage or facial.

This spa treatment combines light, heat, warm aromatic steam and the application of mineral-rich clay to detox, exfoliate and rejuvenate from the inside out. It’s very romantic and therefore very popular with couples.

The One Dessert Journey begins in the beautiful mineral water of the Roman Bathhouse where you can bathe in privacy for 60 minutes, opening pores and softening dead skin.

You will then follow with a desert sand body scrub to gently exfoliate and stimulate the skin and restore its radiance. After exfoliation you will be treated to luxurious oil massage, which provides further rejuvenating for the skin.
