Now is the time for shirking those winter blahs and embracing a new season for renewal and re-energizing. Warmer weather means an overhaul of any woeful wintery habits, and our Spa at 21c expert Natasha Burns has some refreshing recommendations for reenergizing your skin:
Scrubs are a must for this time of year; sloughing off all that winter dullness exfoliates and can make the skin look more healthy. Burns likes to follow a good scrub with a wrap to moisturize and detox from winter (being indoors, eating comfort food, etc.) She recommends the Spa at 21c Shine Body Mask and Wrap as a great segue into Spring. It’s super detoxifying and is a sure way to leave skin moisturized for days after. The treatment begins with an invigorating grapefruit and orange blossom moisture scrub, followed by a soothing cucumber and grapefruit body mask. We top the treatment off with our heavenly silk soufflé massage cream leaving your skin with a clean, luxurious texture.
Burns notes that a little aromatherapy goes a long way when realigning your senses. Fresh scents like lemongrass and lavender orange can help get your senses jump-started. The spa offers a variety of spring scents that you can blend into a massage, aromatherapy bath, body scrub, wrap, and we even some retail products to help create a spa experience at home.
In terms of facials, she recommends a glycolic method to remove dull skin. The Glycolic Renewal Glow we offer at the 21c Spa is an amazing facial to get rid of winter unwanteds. It’s a low grade glycolic peel that will help with hyperpigmentation in the skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. We also offer an at home kit that can be purchased in our Spa Shop so that results can be continued at home. This facial is also available in a package series when one visit just is not enough. Lastly, never forget the number one rule for any skincare regimen: sunscreen. Make sure you start your day with at least an SPF of 15 to protect your skin for a lifetime of radiance.
