It looks like Summer. It smells like Summer….and it definitely FEELS like Summer….With these sizzling temperatures comes spending lots of time kickin it pool side and soaking up those rays. Remember to apply tons of sunscreen with a high SPF.
Did you know that skin is the largest organ in our body? It is our external organ that protects our internal organs from the outside world. It plays an important role in our immunity by detecting foreign substances and fighting against infection. Keeping our skin healthy is very crucial in order to make it functional. Here are some skin health tips:
Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated.
Eat healthy foods to give your skin the nutrients it needs.
Avoiding harsh conditions (sun, wind, contact w/ chemicals).
Keep it clean.
GET A MASSAGE!
Hold up for a second did I just say … Massage? Right on! I wasn’t trying to be sneaky. Massage has great benefits for your skin. Massage increases blood circulation, which allows more nutrients to be carried to skin, it also increases skin cell regeneration which leads to less scar tissue. Massage increases sweat production, which aids in detoxification from waste. The oils, lotions and essential oils I use re-moisturize and soften dry skin. Massage can even help with some skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
So when youíre soaking up those sun rays..remember a massage or an exfoliating body scrub may be what your skin needs and deserves this summer. So go ahead and schedule your Empower Massage TODAY!
