how to achieve radiant skin this summer
Healthy glowing skin requires attention and most importantly, upkeep. But it is simple to achieve with a few simple steps that can be added to your daily routine.
Our skin can get dry and dehydrated over the winter months, so it’s important to shed the old and make way for the new.
For those of you who are not sure of your skin type and condition, it is worth consulting a qualified beauty therapist.
Peninsula Hot Springs has qualified beauty therapists who can advise you on what type of products to use at home and suggest treatments that may be beneficial to you. We use recognised spa products including PHYT’S, LI’TYA and Synergie to promote beauty and wellbeing.
Exfoliation and hydration are two key things to focus on in Summer. With the warmer temperatures we tend to experience increased sweat, which can build up during the day leaving your pores blocked and skin feeling oily and uneven.
Here are a couple of ideas to help you get your skin glowing for Summer:
Our Moroccan Hammam treatment is the ultimate exfoliation and detoxifying tool. The Hammam is traditionally known to promote wellness and deep cleansing. This treatment leaves the skin feeling refreshed and nourished and is a perfect way to prepare your skin for summer.
This treatment begins with a full aromatic oil and desert salt exfoliation followed by a warm mineral body mud cocoon to smooth the skin and hydrate for beautiful glow. This is ideal to help with an even spray tan. Cherry Alder body lotion is lightly textured moisturiser that is enriched with essential natural oils to help hydrate your skin, ideal for lengthening the appearance of a tan.
At home it is important to exfoliate every day in the shower with either a gentle exfoliating mitt or glove.
Bathing in the thermal pools is a great natural detoxifier for your skin. Many of the minerals located in the water such as potassium are known for their promotion of healthy skin. The bicarbonate water gently removes dead skin cells, enlivening your skin from within.
This facial with its two serums is perfect for plumping, hydrating, moisturising and refreshing your skin. PHYT’S uses only the finest herbs and plant extracts to create their products. They are effective and easy for home use to keep skin supple and hydrated for special events. When visiting Peninsula Hot Springs your therapist can recommend products that will help you create and maintain radiance over the summer months.
Now that your skin preparation is covered it is time to move to the outer layer-makeup. Synergie’s Loose Mineral Powder is perfect for light coverage over summer; it feels light on your skin and includes sunscreen, foundation and concealer all in one. It is easy to apply at home and perfect for an on-the-go application.
Lastly, LI’TYA’s Wild Rosella Mist is ideal to carry in your handbag throughout the day for a quick spritz. This mist is great to spray on your face throughout the day to refresh your make-up and plump up tired skin. LI’TYA products are all natural using Australian native ingredients with blended botanical bases to give your face a natural lift.
