Having a regular facial and our Nashville Yards day spa is a wonderful way to take care of your skin this summer. But in between visits to your favorite day spa in Nashville, there are things you can do for your skin at home.
The Forecast Calls for a Sunny Complexion
There’s nothing like a sunny summer day spent enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer, but there can be a dark side to your favorite summer experiences. Sunshine is essential to life (and to the perfect summer outing!), but the rays of the sun are also the leading cause of skin cancer. Fortunately, in this case, you can have your cake and eat it, too. You just need to take some simple precautions.
- Don’t forget the sunscreen. “Today, we know that 90 percent of skin cancer is linked to sun exposure – and yet, only 42 percent of women use facial sunscreen daily,” Allure magazine reports. Seriously? What will it take, ladies? No one is saying you have to slather a thick layer of zinc oxide on your nose. There are countless skincare products available that have sunscreen baked right in. Buy some – and use it!
- That hat looks good on you! In addition to sunscreen (not instead of!), a wide-brimmed hat can go a long way in protecting your dewy complexion from the harsh rays of the sun. If hats aren’t your thing, do your best to seek out the shade of a majestic tree or bring a beach umbrella along for your next picnic.
- Try to stay out of hot water. When it comes to hot water, you really can have too much of a good thing. That just-showered fresh feel is even more delightful in the summer months but hopping in the shower too often or using water that is too hot when you shower can dry your skin out.
Even if you are careful, summer can take its toll on your skin. But a visit to our innovative wellness retreat and day spa in Nashville Yards for a personalized facial can ensure you put your best face forward all summer long.
