Fabulous Finds, #WaterWatch

This guilt-free pedicure doesn't use any water

A spa in Durbanville, Cape Town has found a way to be part of the solution by offering some waterless beauty treatments.

The Simply Skin Wellness Centre provides a waterless pedicure and has implemented means to reduce water consumption on other offerings such as their facials.

Spa owner Tania Botha says she realised that she could not continue with business as usual amid the drought crisis.

Sustainability is very close to my heart.

Tania Botha, Owner at Simply Skin Wellness centre

We've really looked at each treatment and we've tried to customise as much as we can to reduce our water usage in the salon.
