We love the holiday abundance that November brings, but this month we also recognize National Healthy Skin Month. We take skin care education seriously, which is why the goal at the spa is not only to pamper and indulge, but also to inform and gain results. Your skin is the largest organ; there are many ways to improve its health and appearance when we nurture and support it properly.
- Avoid Harsh Chemicals in Products
Many retail products contain a large number of toxins. Don’t shop without expert advice!
- Examine Your Skin Regularly
Look for new or unusual spots, itching, rashes or bleeding. Your skin is a window to health, and it’s important to check your skin regularly. This is especially true if you have a number of moles. Have an esthetician look at your skin.
- Moisturize Daily
Hydrated skin is healthy skin! Apply moisturizer to damp skin for best results. This helps lock in moisture. Dryness can wreak havoc on your skin. This causes cracking, peeling and early aging.
- Protect Your Skin From the Sun
The sun can be very damaging over time. Sunscreen is a must during the summer, but it is important to use sunscreen and/or SPF products on your face and neck year-round.
- Determine Your Skin Type
Choose skin care products tailored to your skin type – dry, oily, combination, normal or sensitive. Not sure what your skin type is? It’s okay, many people aren’t! That’s what we are here for! We can help you determine skin type and the best products for your skin.
These tips are the first steps to nurturing and supporting your skin, but there is much more you can do. Visiting the spa on a regular basis will bring your skin to a new level of health and beauty. Come see us to honor your skin this month!
