Wulan has spa treatments despite pregnancy

JAKARTA: Being pregnant hasn’t prevented actress Wulan Guritno from pampering herself in a spa. Entering her fifth month of pregnancy, Wulan said she wanted to get a leg wax before delivering her baby.

“Treatments are fine during pregnancy because they allow us to relax. Before giving birth, I’d like to have a wax so I can feel clean,” she said as quoted by

Wulan, who recently opened her own spa called Poetre Wax, Spa and Salon in Ciputat, Tangerang, said she now took advantage of the fact that she worked in the spa business to get treatments.

“Before consumers try the treatments [offered in my spa], I’ll try them first,” she said.

Wulan, wife of film director Adilla Dimitri, added that she was allowed to get short massages while pregnant.

“Reflexology is not allowed because there are several parts [of the body] that should not be massaged [while pregnant],” she said.

“I can’t lie on my stomach anymore, I am already five months pregnant, so if I put pressure on my stomach, it hurts,” she said.

Wulan said she usually booked two-hour spa treatments.

“But foot spa treatments only take half an hour. [I have] manicure and pedicure once in two weeks. Body scrubs, once a week,” she said.

Being healthy and clean is the key to being beautiful, she said.

“If one looks pretty, but has a messy hairstyle and long leg hair, can one truly be beautiful? So, being beautiful starts with smooth legs. If we take care of our hair, and leg hair, our face, we are bound to look beautiful,” she said.
