Royals, did you spend too many days at the beach or in the backyard soaking up the sun this summer? While getting some sun in boosts your mood and Vitamin D levels, spending too much time basking without reapplying a broad spectrum sunscreen can leave your skin very damaged, pigmented and dull.

What is the problem?

As you may know, sunlight has rays of UVA and UVB that damage collagen, accelerate aging processes and can lead to skin cancer. Even if you were equipped with your favorite Spa Kingston sunscreen all summer; days in the sand and the hot, dry climate can have you feeling dry and flaky as ever! It is time to bring your glow back and we have got you covered with our best tips and tricks.

What is the solution?

Whenever the seasons change, it is a good time to go get a skin and body treatment if you can. The weather and conditions are changing therefore your skin hydration and oil production levels will also most likely be changing. Below are our recommended summer sun recovery treatments:

  1. Chemical Peels: Our three favorite chemical peels for summer sun recovery are our Sensi Peel, Jessner’s Peel and TCA Peel. The Spa Kingston Sensi Peel strengthens and brightens while simultaneously treating sun damage and discoloration. This peel also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-blemish and antibacterial action which makes it an excellent choice for calming rosacea. Our Jessner's Peel is a moderate peel excellent for congested skin in need of renewal. This effective treatment evens skin tone, unclogs deep pores and rejuvenates the skin from the effects of sun damage. Our TCA Peel is a deeper and more active peel. It expertly treats aging skin, breakouts, pigment problem areas and photo damaged skin. Those with resilient skin, who have more dramatic wrinkling, sun damage and residual scarring from breakouts are the most suitable candidates for the TCA Peel.

  2. Deep Pore Detox: It’s time to detox from summer! This treatment purifies skin and eliminate unflattering breakouts with our carefully crafted blend of Lactic, Glycolic and Salicylic acids. This active blend effectively clear pores of debris and reduces inflammation. A Spa Kingston Deep Pore Detox will result in skin that feels and looks hydrated, detoxified and crystal clear.

  3. Polynesian Noni Body Wrap: This treatment begins with an application of the Noni Herbal Elixir, known for its astounding healing and tightening characteristics. After you relax in the warm body cocoon, you are hydrated and nourished with a warm coconut milk body massage. This amazing treatment will leave you with a healthy, post-summer glow!
