Memorial Day is just around the corner, and we all know what that means — pool parties! Yes, the kind of party where you invite your neighbors and friends to lounge around in swimsuits sipping mojitos. Memorial Day also signifies the beginning of summer, which also means lots of fun in the sun. But if you’re not ready to flaunt some skin, this can be an intimidating prospect. Don’t worry, however. Most people only need a few weeks to get ready for pool season.
Take the example of Mindy Smith. An accountant in Denver, Colorado, Mindy thought she’d never be ready for pool season. She had spent all winter indoors, and her skin was as pale as the snow outside. Her friends encouraged her to spend her weekends at the tanning salon, but Mindy wanted treatments that were safer and more effective.
Happily, Mindy found those treatments–and so can you. We’ve got your ultimate poolside beauty checklist. The following treatments have helped millions of women step into summer in style. Read on for the best tricks of the trade for helping you shake off those winter blues and look your best.
Memorial Day Checklist
Slip into summer with a high-quality spray-on tan. Not only does spray tanning make you appear slimmer; it also helps reduce the appearance of unsightly cellulite. This is because dimpled areas are less noticeable on darker skin. Your spray-on tanning routine should start with a gentle body scrub, followed by a self-tanning lotion applied to areas plagued by cellulite. To top it all off, you should spritz your entire body with a tanning spray.
What should you look for in a self-tanner? For one thing, make sure to choose a self-tanner for your skin tone, not your desired result. Go with a light-to-medium formula if you have fair skin, and a dark formula if your skin contains olive tones. Whatever you do, just say no to a real tan. It’ll damage your skin and make cellulite look even worse.
Laser Hair Removal
Bikini season is upon us, and it’s a given that your skin should be smooth and hairless. Most women dread the thought of constantly waxing and shaving. But there’s hope. Consider laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a simple, relatively painless procedure, and it works fast; 90% of hair is permanently gone after a series of three to six treatments. You should get started early, though, if you want silky smooth skin in time for summer. Most experts recommend starting treatments in winter to ensure flawless summer skin.
Every woman wants glowing skin–especially when she’s frolicking on the beach. That’s why we recommend photo facials. They’re non-invasive, effective, and safe—and they work at the speed of light! Significant results can be seen in as little as two weeks.
IPL photo facials use intense pulsed light to treat brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, uneven pigmentation and facial redness. LED photo facials boost collagen using a narrow spectrum light, producing firmer, younger-looking skin. They also help control acne flare ups by destroying harmful bacteria within the skin. Whatever your cosmetic needs, photo facials likely offer the solution.
For those who are starting to notice crow’s feet, smoker’s line, and frown lines, Botox can help–and just in time for Memorial Day too. Botox is a prescription medicine that, when injected into dynamic wrinkles, instantly eliminates them by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause them. Botox’s effects are pretty much immediate, and with no recovery time involved, this means you can have the procedure done just a few days before a big event. Do keep in mind that Botox can’t do much for static wrinkles caused by gravity, so if that’s your problem, you’re better off exploring other dermal fillers, like Juvéderm.
