The 5 steps of the Beauty Ritual to welcome the summer
Wednesday, 30th June 2017.- With the onset of summer and the increase of exposure to the sun it’s necessary to prepare the skin in order to prevent long term damage. The team of therapists at the Spa Bahía del Duque has presented its ritual Helios, to welcome the onset of summer and prevent the effects of prolonged exposure to the sun. A five step ritual that combines exfoliation, hydration and diet to achieve healthy skin and a radiant tan for the entire summer and prevent the detrimental effects of a longlasting exposure to the sun without the necessary protection.
CLEANSING Twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, cleanse the skin eliminating all traces of makeup and impurities. This is important throughout the year and especially in the summer months when traces of sand and water treatment of swimming pools can dry out the skin. Use a neutral gel and apply it in circular motions, without forgetting the neck area, and rinse with cold or tepid water, which helps to maintain healthy and clean skin. The Spa Bahía del Duque menu includes the cleansing treatment THE CURE. A meticulous purifying procedure based on a thermo-active enzymatic detoxification: enzymatic heat opens and softens the pores while refreshing botanical elements close and purify them. In addition to the extractions performed with an imperceptible technique, this facial includes a nano-stimulating mask. The final touch is a tinted hydrating veil that provides a radiant and luminous appearance.
EXFOLIATION Removing the impurities and dead ceals deposited on the surface of the skin with a good exfoliator, is essential to help renovate the skin and allow other products to properly penetrate the skin. An exfoliation or light peeling should be done 2 or 3 times a week. The Spa Bahía del Duque recommends the CITRUS BODY SCRUB. A powerful protective treatment based on pure vitamin C with a potent antioxidant action. It uses effective natural and botanical exfoliating agents to remove impurities and achieve luminous skin with a radiant and silky appearance.
HYDRATION Hydrating the skin correctly is key to take care and protect it from external aggressions. For this, the team of therapists of the Spa Bahía del Duque recommends C+C VITAMIN SUMMER LOTION from Natura Bissé. This exclusive product hydrates, repairs and prolongs the tan thanks to its formulation based on Aloe Vera and Vitamins C+E. A refreshing lotion with a light texture that favours its application on the face and body and which repairs the skin instantly after the sun or exposure to adverse weather conditions. It intensely moisturizes the skin while protecting it from photoaging and calms any skin discomfort, contributing to the uniform, lasting and natural tan.
REPAIRING After exposure to the sun, a fully body restorative treatment is the best alternative to refresh and repair the tissue. Using natural ingredients from the island, the Spa Bahía del Duque proposes a repairing mask of Aloe Vera and a full body wrap with refreshing and soothing banana leaves. Accompanied by a complete facial treatment that achieves a high grade of facial and body hydration.
DIET There are no magic foods, but all the experts agree that eating five servings of fruit and vegetables per day is essential throughout the year. During the summer months, it’s also recommended to increase the consumption of those rich in lycopene, beta-carotene and Vitamin C, such as tomatoes, watermelon, carrots, pumpkins, oranges and lemons. In order to achieve the recommended daily intake the Spa Bahía del Duque has developed fruit therapy, from the hand of physiotherapist to the stars Michal Novotny, who has created different recipes using fresh vegetables and fruits as a complement to help a better functioning. These natural juices have very concrete benefits, from strengthening the immune system, to helping the skin, boosting energy to detox or energy properties.
