Using a fish for exfoliation may seem a bit extreme, but Turkish women have enjoyed the benefits of the kangal fish for years.

Women in Iceland have the option of relaxing in Iceland’s natural geothermal spas. Heated by lava fields, these warm pools are generally between 98 and 102 degrees in temperature. Natural minerals like silica and sulfur are excellent for skin and facial care.

Spa destinations in India offer some of the most deeply relaxing beauty treatments in the world. One of the most common treatments in India is the Shirodhara, a wonderfully soothing head massage. In addition to massage, Shirodhara also involves slowly pouring hot oil onto the head, as well as a moisturizing body wrap.
