As the days get longer and temperatures climb and we gleefully shrug off all those jerseys, jackets and boots, there’s no reason to believe that your skin needs less pampering, according to the Granny Mouse Spa.
In fact, with the higher temperatures, harsh sunlight and perspiration, skin probably needs just as much if not more pampering during the summer than during the winter.
During the hotter months, it’s often difficult to balance the needs of your skin and the extra time spent in the heat and the sun. Without even realizing it, you are probably even more exposed to the elements, leaving your skin dry and under nourished.
Facials are definitely a must to-do in the summer and can be customized to treat your skin’s specific needs.
In the summertime, facials can focus on repairing and protecting your skin from increased sun exposure and a more active lifestyle. They can help repair damage done during weekends at the beach or beside the pool and help deal with both the immediate and long term effects of sunburn.
Not only do facials help repair summer skin damage, they can also help prevent other summer-related skin issues such as clogged pores and even dry and irritated skin caused by long periods spent in air conditioned offices and homes.
“Summertime facials usually focus on repair and nourishment and infusing your skin with antioxidants so that it can be in the best condition for all the fun summer has to offer,” says Granny Mouse General Manager, Sean Granger.
The amazing summer facials offered at Granny Mouse Country House and Spa include:
Thalgo Micronized Marine Algae Facial – this 60 minute facial is an intense treatment for oily/combination skin. Deeply cleansing and purifying, it promotes cleaner skin with a tighter skin surface and less visible pores.
CSpa Aroma Facial – here you can opt for a 30-minute or 60 minute CSpa Hydrating Facial. This facial really lives up to its name and is a hydrating and balancing treatment for dehydrated skins. The essential oils hydrate, soften and rejuvenate the skin and have a soothing, healing and toning effect on your skin.
After you’ve had your facial, Lowe advises that you take extra special care of your skin for the next 48 hours, avoiding prolonged sun exposure. Use a moisturizer and make up with good sun protection factor’s (SPFs). In fact, this should be the rule for most of the year!
The best way to take care of your summer skin between facials is to continue your home beauty regime by cleansing, toning, and moisturizing twice daily, every day. You can add a facial steam with or without a mask about once weekly.
Then, head back to Granny Mouse for another pampering session!
