Is Your Skin Ready For Summer?

There are few things in life that put a bigger smile on my face than the thought of summer. The idea of waking up and putting a tank top on in the mornings to walk my dogs; not having to bundle up in a scarf and winter coat to drive 3 blocks to my favorite cafe. I can't wait for the last snow to fall, flowers to blossom and soon after, for summer to greet us. Which gets me thinking about something that often crosses my mind... How much of the suns harmful rays is my skin actually absorbing?

In Denver, as soon as Spring hits we're exposing our shoulders and soaking up a lot more sun then we do the months leading up to Spring... We're fortunate enough to live in a state where 50 degrees is warm enough to throw your hair up and wear a tank top. However, we often put a little SPF on our face in the morning and don't even think to protect the rest of our body. Half of the year a good portion of our skin is exposed to the sun nearly all day. Tell me, how often do you apply SPF to your body? Is it every time you bare your shoulders or sit on a patio in flip flops? I rarely cover my body in SPF unless I am hanging out at the park all day or vacationing somewhere tropical. Although our skin does benefit from sun exposure, after just 30 minutes of being outside we begin to absorb harmful rays that cause splotchy brown spots, reduce our skins elasticity and in worse cases cause cancer.

I know, I know... the C word is really scary and I am sure you've heard it 1,000 times. But seriously... Protect your skin, reboot and revive your skin, love your skin and respect your skin and I promise your skin will take care of you.

Our skin is the largest organ of our body. It's the organ that gets exposed to the most toxins and unfortunately one of the most toxic things we're exposed to is the sun.

So, we're declaring March our skin reboot month. It's time to pay some serious attention to your skin. Summer is almost here and even if you don't plan on spending it outside in a bikini, it's still important to take a look at your skin, repair damage and do a total reboot. We guarantee your skin will be fresh, supple and ready to conquer summer. Lucky for you we can treat arms, shoulders, backs, face and other areas of the body for any signs of premature aging and sun damage. Treatments such as IPL combined with a skin care regimen will not only prepare your skin for the summer months but also give you a jump start on your winter routine.

Here's what we recommend...

Hydrate - You should be drinking one oz. per ever 2 lbs of body weigh. That's 1/2 your weight in ounces of water each day! Get used to it ladies, this should be a life style. You can also check out our IV hydration lounge and monthly anti-aging drip memberships.

Detox - Listen to your skin, if you're breaking out and can't figure out why then ask yourself, has there been a change in my diet? Change in my mood? Have my stress levels escalated? Changes in birth control? Something else that could trigger a hormone change? (If you're having issues targeting acne please consult with us, we will refer you to someone who can help. We focus on anti- aging and skin rejuvenation. We do not aide in healing an internal issue that is causing breakouts or long term cystic acne).

Skincare - It is important to find a skin care line that works for you. One of the most important ingredients in your skincare regimen should be daily SPF. We recommend Elta MD.

Maintenance and Prevention - Please consult with us to put together a custom treatment plan that best fits your needs and desires. We're here to make you look and feel flawless and confident all year long.

Book your complimentary consultation now and have flawless skin before your summer wardrobe comes in the mail. We can't wait to see you.
