For Sunspots

It’s all fun in the sun until those dark spots show up. Reduce the appearance of surface skin damage with just the right facial. Pure Bliss Day Spa in Jupiter offers the HydraFacial, a gentle treatment that targets dead skin cells. The skin is exfoliated, extracted, then treated with an antioxidant-rich serum packed with peptides and hydrating hyaluronic acid. You can also add boosters tailored to after-sun therapy, including Britenol (with alpha-arbutin and bearberry extract to brighten and balance) and potent vitamin C (to minimize dark spots). 

For Dry Skin

An afternoon at the pool or beach is no doubt relaxing, but all that chlorine and salt water can spell trouble for your skin’s moisture levels, leaving it tight and flaky. It may sound counter-intuitive, but a good salt scrub can help bring things back to normal. The Botanical Crush Scrub at Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa in Jensen Beach is infused with mineral-rich salt to exfoliate dry, dead skin, plus aromatherapy oils for a total sensory experience. After the scrub, an organic moisturizing oil is applied to replenish hydration.

For Summer Hair Woes

Sun exposure, frequent hair washing and hat-wearing, and sunscreen application can put the hair and scalp through the wringer. That’s why it’s important to give your noggin some extra love during the summer months. Fusion Salon & Spa in Port St. Lucie offers a Scalp Benefit Facial to remedy things like flakiness, irritation, and more. The gentle but invigorating scalp exfoliation reduces flaking by 41 percent, relieves irritation, eliminates excess oil caused by sweating, and slays sunscreen buildup near the hairline. And all that extra attention means shinier, healthier hair. 

For Activity-Induced Aches

After a day in the hot sun spent surfing, wakeboarding, or biking, a full-body treatment is in order. To calm overheated skin, throbbing joints, and sore muscles, try a body wrap like the Tahitian Noni Wrap at Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa. The noni fruit is lauded for its positive effects on joint health and immunity, as well as its antioxidant properties. The treatment harnesses these anti- inflammatory benefits to alleviate soreness and soothe overexposed, sun-damaged skin via a cocoon-style wrap for optimal absorption. Take things a step further with a redness-reducing silver ion face mask plus a warm coco- nut milk scalp and body application.
