A trip to the beach isn’t just about scenic views and the best sunscreens, it’s also an opportunity for selfies.
A sand-side selfie is the best way to show off your naturally glowing skin this summer, along with the best pedicures, massages, and body treatments that give you that effortless beach babe look.
Don’t get us wrong, relaxation and fun with your friends are the top priority during a beach day—but serene relaxation and a ton of Instagram comments complimenting your skin and toes are a bonus!
Ready to dip your toes (and skin!) into the best treatments for beach prep? Try our favourites below.
Hydrafacials are the ideal summer treat for your skin. They provide three treatments in one (deep cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing) to extract impurities and leave your complexion feeling rejuvenated and radiant.
It’s often difficult to find the proper balance between exfoliation and hydration, but a Hydrafacial will properly moisturize sun-exposed skin and remove blackheads and dead skin without stripping essential moisture. What more can you ask for?
A pre-beach Hydrafacial will help your skin look glowing and gorgeous for beach selfies, but getting them done regularly will deliver even more beautiful results meaning you are always totally beach-ready.
Not only does it open up the pores to help your everyday moisturizers and serums penetrate more deeply, but it can also help to reduce greater skin issues like acne, fine lines, uneven texture, and more.
Gel Manicure & Pedicure
If you plan on spending a lot of time at the beach this summer, you need a manicure and pedicure that delivers vibrant colour without chipping off in the sand. Meet your new best friend… the gel mani/pedi.
With the help of a pre-mixed acrylic and LED light, your colour will be set and guaranteed to look beautifully chip-free for at least two to three weeks.
Summer is an active period where you don’t always have the time to head to the salon every week, and a gel manicure and pedicure is perfect for the girl-on-the-go who wants to have her purple nail polish and wear it, too.
Botox for Hair
Don’t let the word “Botox” scare you, as this treatment is simply an amplified version of your favourite leave-in conditioner. It uses deep conditioning technology to nourish the strands with the best vitamins, antioxidants, and/or natural oils… providing smooth and sleek strands that even the summer humidity can’t touch.
Bad hair at the beach? Not today, or any day after you’ve discovered the beauty of Botox for hair. Your technician will determine your hair’s type and needs—by infusing the strands with nutrients like Keratin, Biotin or Vitamin E.
Not only will your summer haircut or highlights look their best for your beach selfies, but you’ll also have your new go-to treatment for good hair at big events like prom, weddings or dates!
Microneedling is a simple and effective beauty treatment that’s been used by top dermatologists and celebrities for decades.
It’s a summer beauty essential that rejuvenates the skin in a beautiful way, using hundreds of tiny needles to prick the skin and trigger the body’s collagen and elastin production to heal like never before.
Don’t worry, there is very minimal pain and only around 30 minutes of treatment so you’ll be beach-ready in no time. Things like acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles will be yesterday’s news with a few micro-needling sessions… and that’s all in addition to the gorgeous glow you’ll get!
