Is it just us, or do you have that inescapable feeling that summer seems shorter with each passing year? Perhaps that fleeting feeling is why we become unabashed sun-seekers taking every opportunity to bask in its warm rays. We doze off on the beach, always opt for the table on the patio, and pop open the sunroof at every chance.

While we fully endorse taking full advantage of the inherent pleasure summer brings, we also know that’s it’s easy to overdo it. It’s probably time for a mid-summer check-in to make sure you’re treating your skin well.

1. Use sunscreen every day. We know you know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure — and that is especially true when it comes to preventing sun damage. To fully protect yourself against harmful UVA and UVB rays, it’s essential to use a high-quality product with an SPF of at least 30.

Daily sunscreen application has come a long way from the smelly, goopy formulas that make you look like a ghost. We carry a wide range of luxury sunscreen products that can help you achieve your specific skin-care goals, including products from ZO Skin Health. Our go-to for summer is the ZO Skin Health Daily Sheer SPF 50 Sunscreen. It goes on nice and smooth and doesn’t leave you oily throughout the day. 

2. Apply sunscreen throughout the day for maximum sun protection. We are in love with any beauty product that serves more than one purpose, that’s why we love the Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50 by Colorescience. This handy mineral powder sunscreen has a hint of colour and a bit of shimmer to help your skin look its best. Keep one in your car, one in your purse, one at your desk, and one at home to make sure protection is never very far away. 

3. Give your skin some extra TLC with the Teoysal Redensity 1 Beauty Booster — it’s like an Instagram filter for your skin. You might have seen this treatment and its amazing results all over social media and YouTube. Let us assure you, it really is a game-changer!

We use a V2 injector to deliver Teoysal Redensity 1 directly to the face, lower eyelid, forehead, neck, décolleté or hands. This unique product stimulates growth factors while producing hydration and nourishment to the upper layer of the skin. V2 technology also triggers fibroblasts, which encourages the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. In other words, tighter, firmer, glowing skin!

4. Go for a deep clean. Your skin has gone through a lot this summer and, if you’ve experienced a sunburn, dead skin left behind might be giving you a dull appearance. This is when our HydraFacial comes in. Say hello to your skin’s new best friend.

This invigorating treatment deeply yet gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin with a technique similar to microdermabrasion and resurfaces with a mild chemical peel solution. Impurities are then extracted with a gentle suction while the freshly exposed skin is moisturized and then drenched with peptides and antioxidants.

There is no downtime for this treatment, so you can show off your soft, smooth, glowing skin immediately!

5. Nourish your body from within with an IV Nutrition Treatment. No, you don’t have to be Hollywood royalty to take advantage of this truly incredible experience that delivers vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids via an intravenous drip.

Appointments are quick and comfortable, so it’s the perfect lunchtime treatment when you’re feeling rundown or if summer indulgences are making you feel a bit sluggish. Each IV therapy has its own unique formula that is targeted to what you need the most, whether it’s fatigue, dehydration, anxiety, illness, headaches, poor sleep, and more. Contact us to chat about what IV therapy might be right for you.
