Sweet summer is in full swing and that means we are back out and about from our winter hibernation mode. There are a lot more events and social gatherings and we want to look and feel our best. Our approach to summer skincare takes an inner and outer approach. We want that deep-rooted glow from within that radiates from our health, vitality, and happiness. In addition, we want clean, result-oriented skincare products to use in our at-home rituals and monthly facials specifically designed for summer skin.

2. Summer Botanical Facial
Your monthly facial also transitions for the summer. Calming and soothing locally sourced botanicals are combined with clinical Glo Skin Beauty products that restore balance, brighten, cool, hydrate, and protect summer skin. Stress-relieving massage and uplifting botanical aromas rejuvenate the mind, body, and mood.
3. Infrared Sauna
Infrared saunas include near, mid, and far wavelengths that penetrate the body’s tissue, creating benefits that include a deep detoxifying sweat, muscle relaxation, anti-aging skin benefits, weight loss, stress reduction, cardiovascular health, and more.
4. Hydrate from Within
Staying hydrated in the summer heat is essential. We tend to sweat more and need to replenish our hydration levels for our bodies to function healthily, including our skin. If we are dehydrated, less water is transferred to the skin through circulation. Water can improve blood flow in the skin and body, transporting more nutrients to your cells.
Ways to hydrate from within:
5. Up your anti-oxidant intake
Eating foods high in antioxidants helps protect your skin from signs of aging caused by free-radical damage caused by the harmful UV rays from the sun and even cancer. Eating enough antioxidants’ will help keep your skin healthy and youthfully radiant.
Some foods high in antioxidants
Green tea (try iced with lemon for summer!)
Acai (can find this in frozen fruit to add to your smoothie)
Citrus high in vitamin C like lemons and oranges
Nuts + Seeds
