“We have an amazing range of wonderful services and products to choose from,” adds Karen Petrovic, Guest Services. “This summer, in addition to our must-have pedicures, massages and waxing, we are introducing two wonderful products from Dermalogica. The first is a charcoal rescue masque that is quickly becoming the go-to treatment masque for tired lackluster skin. It is an all-in-one masque that detoxifies, brightens and invigorates all skin conditions.
“The second is a new Dermalogica IonActive Power System that combines thermal activity and the latest treatment-room technology to help reduce the signs of skin aging, uneven skin tone, acne and/or dehydration. It is a wonderful treatment for clients with challenging skin conditions who want to elevate their skin to the next level.”
These are just two of the many exhilarating treatments offered at Urban Retreat.
Dermalogica also recommends the following tips for summer skin care, adds Karen.
Exfoliate skin at least twice a week for clearer, smoother skin. Helps prevent congestion and lack luster skin. Daily Microfoliant is ideal to use daily as it’s gentle and non-irritating.
Keep Skin Hydrated: Ensure healthy glowing skin by using a hydrating masque twice a week. Use a hydrating serum like hydrating booster daily to keep skin plumped and conditioned.
Drink More Water: Prevent internal dehydration by upping your water intake. Water with lemon is excellent for skin as it helps give skin a clear, healthy complexion.
Reapply SPF Frequently: Protect from sun rays with your preferred SPF. Use a teaspoon amount for the face. A Shot glass amount is needed for the body. Reapply frequently to stay protected.
Soothe Over-Exposed Skin: Use after sun repair to calm, repair and soothe damaged skin. It helps prevent redness and peeling as well as repairing damaged skin cells.
