Get Your Skin Ready for Summer - Top 10 Things to do for Your Skin


Updated May 2017

Try these amazing tips from our Spa Director Rachael to help you create glowing, healthy skin this Summer:

1)         Brighten and lift your eyes with an eye brow shaping. 

Eyebrows are one of your most important facial features! Shaping them can lift your eyes, narrow or widen your face, and make you look younger, lighter and more relaxed. Are you familiar with Sugaring, the old Egyptian technique of hair removal?  Check it out! Less painful and more permanent than waxing. Available at the Spa at Earthbox.

2)         Renew your Skin with a Full Body Exfoliation

The removal of dead skin speeds up the body’s skin renewal process, helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles and ease discoloration. Remove the dead skin of Winter with a full body exfoliation treatment.  Our glorious skin polishing mixture used in the body treatments at our on-site day spa (The Spa at Earthbox), will moisturize you from head to toe, leaving your skin feeling soft and renewed; your body invigorated.

3)         Drink Green Tea

Green Tea has been shown to help prevent heart disease and cancer. It is used in China to treat headaches and depression. Drinking Green Tea every day is linked to reducing sun damage and slowing the effects of aging on the skin. And it’s delicious!  Try a cup--we offer you a delicious cup of exclusive tea from Tea Forte with each spa service at The Spa at Earthbox!

4)         Greet summer with a Fresh Glow 

The Spa’s Skin Regimen Facials include exfoliating, which keeps pores from getting clogged and helps your skin breathe. Clogged pores appear larger and can lead to acne and black heads. Our most advance skin care product and service will improve your skin tone, and significantly slow signs of aging.

5)         Experiment with a new Look

Have some fun: Plump your lips and freshen your eyes with our lip blooming mask and anti-aging eye treatment. The perfect treat before your Hot Summer Night date.

6)         Take a Bath

Nourish yourself with a Tranquility Epsom/sea salt soak. Tranquility soaks are loaded with magnesium, to keep your bones strong and your blood pressure normal. They improve circulation, relieve achy muscles and have anti-inflammatory properties, giving your step that extra Summer pep.

7)         Prep Your Feet For Summer

Get your feet ready for sandals and dancing, and dancing in sandals, with a cleansing and hydrating pedicure using our SpaRitual line of nail care products.  And for an extra treat, try our eucalyptus foot bath.

8)         Show off your Arms and Legs

Get a leg & underarm sugaring. Sugar doesn’t stick to live skin cells. It removes unwanted hair and dead skin only. Sugar is a natural antibacterial and more sanitary than waxing. Sugar stays pliable and gently removes the hair shaft without breaking. Get that short, strapless dress and finally toss that razor!

9)         Hydrate your Skin

Sacred Nature Body Butter with butterfly tree extract , buriti oil, karité butter, organic orange distilled water and jojoba oil is a more intense body moisturizer used to maximize skin hydration. It forms a protective layer over your skin to prevent loss of moisture. This must-have body butter will keep your skin soft and glowing avant & apres sun all Summer long. Available at our Spa.

10)      Take a long Walk on the Beach

Increasing blood flow and oxygen helps nourish your skin cells, carry away toxins and ease stress. Let the wind blow in your hair while you watch the bald eagles soar on one of San Juan Island’s dramatic beaches.
