Here are some tips on finding skincare and body treatments that will help soothe your weather woes.
- As the seasons change, keep in mind that local flora will also become more abundant at certain times of year. Look for a location that attempts to integrate local herbs or plants into their treatments, or uses seasonal fruits and/or scents to inspire spa treatments throughout the year. For instance, find an aloe-rich body treatment when the sun is at its hottest and when you need to soothe sunburns.
- If you already have a favorite aesthetician or massage therapist, ask him or her about his or her recommendations on how to treat your body. For instance, if you experience extremely dry skin, ask about what elements and therapies can add more suppleness and moisture. While your beauty treatment therapist may be a great person to go to when you need to unwind, they are also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to different product lines and home treatments.
- Sometimes your hands and feet are the most affected when it comes to harsh weather. If it’s summer, your toes and feet may need some extra love after spending every day in flip-flops, wedges and other sorts of summertime shoes. Or, when winter rolls around, your hands, fingers and nails may experience extra dryness and brittleness. Visit a local day spa, such as Bellezza Spa in Miami (www.bellezzaspa.com) and ask about what sorts of hand and foot treatments they can offer. For instance, a paraffin spa manicure and pedicure is great for getting rid of excess dry skin and will add softness to dry hands and feet. The guys can also take advantage of a men’s sport manicure if they want to their hands to be ready for summertime parties and days on the beach.
