Just as manicures and massages are synonymous with Glen Ivy’s wellness and self-care beliefs, so is the importance of proper skin care. Being the largest organ in your body, giving regular care to your skin can directly contribute to your overall health. Though everyone’s skin may be different, it’s safe to say that it’s easier to prevent skin issues than attempting to correct them when the damage is already done. Preventative measures like washing your face every morning and night, eating better, hydrating, and getting ample sleep all lead to healthier skin and a healthier you.

Arguably one of the most important preventative measures of skin care, especially during the summer season, is to incorporate sunscreen in your daily skin care routine. With Glen Ivy recognizing National Wellness Month this August, and the 15th being National Relaxation day, there’s emphasis on spending time outdoors, being active, and soaking up the sun. All of those activities sound rejuvenating and relaxing, but they also entail lots of sunshine. The Skin Cancer Foundation reminds us that “skin is damaged by sun exposure over your lifetime, whether or not you burn.” This is a great reminder that sunscreen should be worn on a daily basis and should be reapplied every two hours.

Glen Ivy not only promotes the significance of sunscreen, but focuses on skin care as a whole. When looking at the selection of treatments at Glen Ivy, you’ll find countless facials with face masks that target and treat different skin types, ages, and conditions. With so many options to choose from, Glen Ivy makes it easy for you to pick with a survey to find the facial best suited to you. Celebrate wellness this month at Glen Ivy Hot Springs with treatments like the Nourishing Classic Solution facial, a subterranean full-body masque in the Grotto, or the natural exfoliation of California red clay in Club Mud. Whichever you choose, Glen Ivy has your skin-care needs covered from head to toe.
