Summer Skin Protection

Summer means the sun is stronger so taking protective measures to beat the heat is incredibly important!

Here are some insider tips and tricks to keep your skin glowing and healthy:

“Working around your clothes will make you more likely to miss a spot,” says dermatologist Jeannette Graf. On your body, slather on a shot glass’s worth of a broad-spectrum sunscreen that’s at least SPF 30. For your face, you’ll need another teaspoon.

Another reason why it’s good to apply sunscreen before you get dressed: SPF needs a good 20 minutes to sink in before your skin is completely protected from UV rays, Graf says. If you wait, you might as well be wearing no sunblock at all for that first half-hour you’re outdoors.

We all have that leftover bottle of sunscreen lurking in the medicine cabinet, but it’s critical to start fresh each summer. “The active ingredients in sunscreens can lose their potency, so check the expiration date,” says dermatologist David Bank.

People often forget to protect their scalp—and end up with a burn in their hair part. When in doubt, wear a hat.

Forgot the sunscreen at home?
No problem, we have COOLA Suncare products for purchase in the Spa Lifestyle Store! Additionally, we formulate with Plant Protection®, which allows us to achieve clinically tested, broad spectrum and antioxidant-rich protection while using fewer traditional actives. Better for your skin, better for the environment.

Additional Tips for Visiting Glen Ivy:
Drink plenty of water, especially if you have any treatments booked. Massages tend to be dehydrating. We have umbrellas located throughout the property, which are the perfect spot to relax in the shade.

If you notice any signs of heat-related illness, notify a staff member immediately who will assist you.
