If you want a top-notch tan whilst trying something new, then a trip to a hammam or Turkish bath is definitely for you. Hammams have existed in Turkey since ancient times, providing locals with a way to relax and freshen up. They're also brilliant for exfoliating your skin so you're more likely to develop a lasting tan.Head to one of the best local hammams and you'll change into your swimwear and wrap up in a towel. The hammam itself is a humid, marble-tiled room with a ‘gobektasi', a heated stone slab in the centre. Relax as the heat softens your skin, opens your pores and gets you sweating out those toxins.Lie on the ‘gobektasi', and you'll be treated to an aromatic salt body scrub followed by a covering in soft, soapy bubbles and a face mask. After that, you'll enjoy a bronzing oil massage and a fresh fruit plate that'll leave you positively glowing. It's a great way to start your holiday.
