From now on, you no longer need to reserve your access to the public thermal baths. The government announced this earlier this week. Therefore, we have decided to stop with online and telephone reservations of a simple entrance to our wellness centres.
Your skin is exposed to many external aggressors which cause damage and premature ageing. A dull complexion, dry skin with fine lines ... These are just some of the results of exposure to smog, greenhouse gases and fine dust.

Our advice? Choose a day cream that protects your skin well and remember to apply sunscreen!
Blue light, too, can have a negative effect on your skin. It increases the production of free radicals, causing premature skin ageing. Age spots are one of the best-known consequences of overexposure to blue light. Sure, you could try limiting your screen time, but those of us who use a computer for work will still be exposed to blue light for quite a few hours. So, make sure to protect your skin by regularly adding a serum to your daily skincare routine. Choose a product that protects your skin from free radicals. Retinol, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C and E are the magic ingredients here.
As you get older, elastin and collagen levels decline. And yes, these happen to be the very substances that keep your skin supple, yet firm. So, as part of your daily skincare routine, choose a night cream that contains these ingredients.
We have talked quite a bit about moisturising and what skin creams to apply, but cleansing is just as important, of course. For instance, it’s a bad idea to go to bed without removing your make-up. Every morning and evening, take the time to cleanse your skin with a cleansing milk and lotion, and try to scrub your skin once a week with a gentle peeling product.
At both Thermae Boetfort and Thermae Grimbergen, we use products by Sirène, a line of skincare products exclusively made for us by a Belgian lab. Either ask your beauty therapist for more info during your treatment or ask our staff at reception what products would be suitable for you.
These messages are definitely worth a quick read!
We have a lovely new addition to our beauty product range: Kigelia Africana Skin Lift. The Kigelia africana is a large tree of the genus Bignonia, native to tropical Africa. The tree has large sausage-shaped fruit and big, red-purple flowers. The active ingredient in this day cream has two very distinct properties: it soothes the skin, and it stimulates the natural regeneration of skin cells.
