Summer is here and with it gorgeous weather that invites us to bare more and enjoy the sun. Your skin’s health will greatly impact your summer look so if showcasing glowing skin in this and future summers is your goal, there are some great ways to stay protected while still achieving a perfect sun-kissed glow.

Insider Tip #1 - Exfoliate Your Skin
Whether you buy a product for in-home use or you visit Still Spa and get one of our popular sugar scrubs, take time to exfoliate your skin. This will not only help you get rid of surface dry skin cells making it look smoother, it will also allow for your full spectrum sunscreen to be evenly distributed. As a result, you will be better protected and your skin will achieved a uniform tone.

Insider Tip #2- Hydrate and Moisturize
Next time you take a stroll down the Farmer’s Market or local berry farm, pick up some extra goodies for a powerful moisturizing mask. Strawberries, with their natural occurring salicylic acid and vitamin C will leave skin smooth and luminous. Simply puree 1/2 cup ripe strawberries with 1/4 cup cornstarch. Apply and wait 30 minutes and then rinse with rose water. A smooth skin will be serve as the perfect accessory to your bathing suit and will also better allow your sunscreen to do its work.

Insider Tip #3 - Reapply
No spa treatment or home skin care regime will fully compensate for dry and tired looking skin resulting from overexposure to the sun. One-time application in the morning is not going to give you full day protection. The key is to reapply. The sun blocking effects of sunscreen will begin to diminish within the first hour of use. Reapplying every couple of hours is vital to full-day protection.

 

Keep these tips in mind all summer long and enjoy beautiful and healthy skin in this and future seasons.
