Kids Are Home For Summer: Send Them (And Yourself!) To “Skin School”

Actually, “Skin School” is suitable for folks of any age, at any time of year. But since the college kids are home, it’s a good time for them to learn how to avoid or minimize breakouts and dry skin, sunburn, and more.

Biology
Did you know that bathing in or drinking different water can wreak havoc on the look and feel of your skin? Where you vacation – or where your student attends school – may be one of the reasons the products you usually use don’t work as well, why oily skin or dry patches appear on normally balanced skin, and why blemishes or breakouts occur.

A Hydrafacial treatment cleanses the pores, removes impurities, and rehydrates the skin, leaving your skin looking beautiful and feeling refreshed. Although it may feel counterintuitive to hydrate your skin during the time when you perspire most, think about the Hydrafacial as a way to flush out the oils and pollutants – those things that contribute to breakouts – that settle on your skin when you sweat.

Chemistry
June 20 was the first official day of summer – meaning, the longest period of daylight (17 hours, to be exact), and chances are that you’ll spend at least a few hours outdoors. Although we need a certain amount of exposure to sunlight in order to produce the Vitamin D necessary for healthy bones and processing essential minerals, too much exposure can lead to skin cancer and other health issues. Using the right sunscreen, such as the Elta MD sunscreen products, offers protection from harmful rays without chemicals that can harm the body.

Social Studies
Time at the spa strengthens family ties, allowing parents and partners time to bond over a relaxing, rejuvenating facial. You see, healthy skin is not just for women. Men make up a significant portion of the clientèle at Head To Toe by Arlene, often recognizing the importance of a personalized skincare regiment before heading to college, when they landed their first job, or when they popped the question and wanted to look their best for their bride-to-be.

Summer is the perfect time to learn more about how the right skincare products and procedures can help you look and feel your best, every season of the year. The habits you start today will help you wear your best skin for years to come!

Head To Toe by Arlene has TWO locations – in Marietta and in Roswell. Call today 404.218.0518 for your facial, waxing, and more. “Skin School” is included with EVERY appointment!
