Get Healthy, Protected, Spa-Worthy Skin This Summer

Thursday, 30 June 2011

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Summer is officially here and that means it's time to get serious about your skin care routine. This is the season when pedicures are a must and applying sunscreen goes without saying. If you've tried everything under the sun and still haven't found the results you were looking for then it's time to upgrade your summer time routine with products from the spa.

"It's no secret that the best results-oriented products for your skin can be found at the spa," said ISPA President Lynne McNees. "It's important to learn not only what the right product for your skin is, but how to properly incorporate it into your skincare routine. The spa is the perfect place to educate yourself and learn from a licensed professional what's right for you."

According to the ISPA U.S. Spa Industry Study, 85 percent of spas introduced an anti-aging treatment onto their menu. While a spa treatment will kick start you on the road to results, it's important to take the spa experience home with the right products to achieve the best results. With the help of these ISPA members you'll be summer ready in no time.
