Spring is the time of year when many people want to get outdoors and enjoy the incredible warm weather. For many people, spring means spending time by the pool and at the beach, and that means swimsuits. Before you step out of your winter attire and don your swimsuit, a trip to the spa for a few specific spa treatments could help you achieve that perfect glow that will make your skin beach-ready in no time flat.
Seaweed Wrap or Vitamin C Facial
The winter weather can leave your skin looking dry and just a little bit dull. A full-body seaweed wrap can help to moisturizer your skin all over your body, making it look supple and smooth – perfect for swimsuit weather. A vitamin C facial mask can also help bring a little bit of your face’s natural color back after a rough winter while helping to smooth and tone your skin. Even if you’re in a bathing suit, your face still needs to look healthy!
Full Body Exfoliation
Dead, dry skin can build up over the winter months, making your skin look less than stellar. A full body exfoliation treatment can make your skin look more vibrant without leaving you red and blotchy looking. When it comes to full body exfoliation for the summer months, you’ll want to stick with a gentle all-natural exfoliants like sea salt or oatmeal. While alpha hydroxy acids and glycolic acid are good for your skin in the winter, and are even good when used in at-home products, using them as active ingredients in full-body exfoliants in the summer months can leave your skin more susceptible to sun damage, even if you use sunscreen and reapply often. Make sure you follow any exfoliating treatment with a moisturizing one.
