The best spa treatments for summer
When the weather heats up and the sun comes out, so do the shorts, flip flops and bathing suits!
Nothing beats a fresh pedicure when your toes come out of sock-and-shoe hibernation for the summer, but did you know that there are other spa treatments that can help prepare you for the warmer weather from head to toe?
Face: You all know how important it is to wear sunscreen on all exposed skin in the summertime, but it's even more important to wear it on your face. Prolonged sun exposure on your face not only increases your risk for skin cancer, but also causes premature aging, browns spots, wrinkles and dryness.
Beside wearing a lightweight sunscreen, prep your face with a facial that exfoliates, hydrates and soothes your skin rather than getting a acidic peel or other more abrasive treatments that might irritate your skin when exposed to sun.
Body: Keep your skin hydrated and toned with mud baths, seaweed wraps and exfoliation treatments. Do you wear sunless tanner? It will look more natural if you exfoliate and keep your skin hydrated prior to putting it on.
Feet: Pedicures are the perfect compliment to a pair of sandals! Colourful toe nail polish can also help to protect your nail bed from sun damage.
