4 Important Things to Remember During Summer
With everything else going on this summer, we all remember to protect our skin from the sun and hydrate our bodies by sipping many cool and refreshing beverages, but sometimes we forget the little things. Here are four important things to remember this summer when practicing self-care:
1. Don’t forget the lips.
Your lips need to be protected also. A wonderful product is Coola’s Liplux Organic Lip Balm SPF 30. The vitamin-enriched, antioxidant formula protects and conditions lips with natural fruit butters.
2. Protect your scalp.
Long hair can protect your scalp a little from the sun, but your hairline is more sensitive and can still get burned. Use a sunscreen spray along your part, as creams may be harder to apply.
3. Don’t scratch bug bites.
Bug bites can itch and linger for weeks after they become inflamed. If you happen to get stuck with a sting, it is best to use hydrocortisone creams to reduce the urge to scratch.
4. Remember to relax and rejuvenate.
The Lantana Spa at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa offers varied treatments for relaxation and refreshment of the face, the body and the soul for men, women and couples. Try the Lantana Spa's Firming Facial, which firms and hydrate all skin types with a decadent boost of collagen-rich organic vitamins and botanicals.
This specialized facial is designed to both increase elasticity and diminish fine lines. The triple potent combination of vitamin C, vitamin E, and rosehip extract blended in an ultra-light oil base increases the efficacy of all vitamins and nutrients featured throughout the facial, creating immediate and lasting benefits to reveal a beautiful, hydrated, and smooth complexion.
