What's better than going to the spa?
Having the spa come to you, of course. These services come to you – so you can primp in the comfort of your own home.
1. Bronze your body
With so much sunshine in Singapore, why would anyone need a spray tan?
To lessen the risks of premature skin aging and melanomas, of course! Tan@Home can help you achieve a golden glow without stepping outside. There are options for both men and women (from $70 a session).

Looking groomed takes effort that we're sometimes not that keen on exerting.
And that's okay - GeNails does house calls. Its services menu ranges from a Classic Manicure (from $30) to the Classic Gelish Manicure and Pedicure package (from $95).

5. For DIY divas
Or, pretty up with skincare from popular spas in Singapore.
Sloane Inc's Dermaboost Vitamin C S16.1 ($64.20). Mix one scoop of the powder with your favourite water-based serum or moisturiser every morning. It purportedly targets spots and uneven discolouration, and supports collagen replenishment.
The Gold Glow ($85.60), which contains 24k gold and vitamin-dense sea buckthorn berry. The mask is said to smoothe skin and soothe signs of stress, dullness and dryness.
Porcelain Face Spa's oil- and paraben-free Flawless Skin Perfecting Moisturizer ($165) claims to prevent pore congestion and protects skin from sun damage and premature aging.
Struggling with acne? The Balance Sebum Control Essence ($41) is a concentrated formula designed to regulate oil secretion and reduce infl ammation and redness. Apply 3 to 5 drops twice daily after cleansing and toning.
