3 Ways to Get Summer-Ready

There’s only one question left: Is your skin as ready for summer as you are?

long)? Sunscreen. You don’t want to go anywhere without it. It’s the perfect accessory to your skin-care regimen and the customized treatments
you schedule with your esthetician. You want to protect the look you’ve
worked so hard to achieve, and that’s where protection comes into play.
Look for products that contain SPF 30 — many moisturizers and makeup lines now do — and use them daily. We love the Rhonda Allison line on Page 2. In addition to being rejuvenating and moisturizing, many of her products contain sunscreen. You’ll also want to utilize the help of protective accessories. Find a cute hat and trendy pair of sunglasses, and voila! You are ready to hit the beach or lounge poolside. Whichever treatments are right for you, your Beautique esthetician will help you find them. There’s also a lot you can do at home to prevent damage from the sun and protect the skin you’ve come to love. Talk to your esthetician for more suggestions, and enjoy the warmth of the sun while knowing you’re protecting yourself from its harmful rays.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FRESH PRODUCE Now, more than any other time of the year, fruits and vegetables are at their ripest and tastiest! Berries, peaches, nectarines, tomatoes, peas — they all taste delicious, and your body and skin will thank you for eating them. Berries contain antioxidants that help your body battle inflammation, and all the vitamins in fruits and veggies give you a nutritious boost. Being in season, they also tend to contain more nutrients now than they do the rest of the year. Enjoy them in a smoothie or juice, or add them to your salad for a sweet twist. BUILD BETTER SKIN Our spa offers several options that literally help you build better skin. The sun takes a toll on us, and to combat it, we sometimes need an extra hand. Using technology, we’re able to apply most treatments in as little as half an hour.
