Self-Care Corner: Get that Clean, Healthy Glow for Summer!


By Krisy Anderson

Have you considered your daily skin-care routine? Are there small improvements you can make that will add up to big changes over time?

For example, do you use clean skincare, haircare and body care? If not, switch out toxic items for clean, cruelty-free products. At the spa, we work to always maintain the skin’s natural barrier. Your at-home products should be efficient naturally—ones which support your wellness from the inside out. Aloe Source products could be a solution for you. I chose unique Aloe Vera cleansers to carry at the spa and serum, because they are designed to treat a variety of skin concerns for all facial skin types. This Paraben-free line was created by pairing stabilized Aloe Vera with effective ingredients such as peptides, vitamin C and plant stem cells—all designed to enhance your inner and outer glow and to shield against visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and skin discolorations. The peptides work by signaling receptors in skin to behave in certain ways mainly to encourage collagen production. They’re safe for all skin types, especially those suffering from environmental damage. I’ve carried these in the Spa for about seven years and have witnessed very positive results.

Are you getting plenty of quality sleep? Without it each night, your body and skin (your largest organ) cannot repair, rest and restore.

Do you create a balance between work, play and rest? You need times of refreshing and rest, even in small ways, that go a long way to helping you maintain facial radiance.
Do you touch your face a lot? If so, you might be promoting acne breakouts.

To re-calibrate, start your day by drinking hot lemon water, which is also an immunity booster. Or create a simple ritual each day, such as brewing a cup of tea—a fantastic way to hydrate, too.

Men and women, cleanse, tone and hydrate morning and evening. Apply your moisturizer immediately after washing your face every morning and night. Skin best absorbs the moisture and locks it in for a longer time when applied when skin is still damp.
