getting your skin ready for the beach

It’s almost here: that time of year when long weekends turn into beach retreats and every free afternoon is another chance to sneak in some pool time. How are we prepping for the sunny season ahead? These must-try skin treatments are at the top of our summer to-do list – right after buying a new bikini.

1. Pre-game the season with a spray tan.

Sun-kissed shoulders are definitely a summer must, but you don’t need to forgo the sunscreen – or bake under the sun’s harmful rays – just to score them. Use a spray-tanning session to give your skin a before-the-beach glow, and you’ll look like you’ve spent the entire winter strolling around the Cayman Islands.

2. Book a full-body exfoliation.

Though the sand itself is bound to slough off some of those dry cells, we’d rather hit the beach with major radiance from minute one. The easiest way to get there? Shed your off-season skin with an exfoliation treatment designed to leave you smooth, silky and totally rejuvenated. The full-body option is perfect for covering all the bases, but don’t forget to add a facial into the mix. If you’re anything like us, you’ll be wearing less makeup once the temps start to rise, so clear pores are a total necessity.

3. Go for a bikini-ready waxing.

See you later, irritating razors. A high-quality waxing treatment is the best route to completely smooth skin, and its long-lasting benefits are basically made for lazy beach days. Plus, the technique isn’t just reserved for the bikini area; your legs, arms, belly and back reap the benefits too. Endless summer, here you come.
