ViX SPA-liday Mini Guide

November 14th, 2011

November ushers in the harsh winter season and with it being National Healthy Skin Month, now is the perfect time for lavish self-pampering. The skin is the body’s first line of defense and taking care of it is essential to wellness and immunity. Healthy, glowing skin is also the ultimate companion to a designer bikini from the ViX Cruise 2012 Collection. Below are a few spa treatments that will help your skin look its best while shopping around for the ultimate resort wear to don during your holiday destination:


Waxing
Regular grooming is crucial especially when you are planning on wearing a swimsuit. Keeping a regular schedule is best, as regrowth gets finer over time and makes the pain less intense. Taking a mild painkiller such as ibuprofen at least 30 minutes before your appointment can also make things more tolerable—and remember to breathe! Stark Waxing Studio uses a French hard wax for sensitive skin and has locations in West Hollywood, Silver Lake and New York.


Sunless Tanning
We love color but hate the harmful UV rays of the sun. Sunless tanning or spray tans are safer methods of getting that flattering bronze shade. Make sure to exfoliate beforehand for an even finish that will make the body look slimmer and bikini ready! Try organic tanning solutions like those offered at Chocolate Sun in Los Angeles.


Facials
The ultimate indulgence for your skin, facial treatments usually involve deep cleansing, customized masks and a facial massage. Maintain the ultimate beauty regime with a facial every four to six weeks to help keep your skin purified. And don’t forget to protect with a moisturizer that has an SPF of at least 30. Mokara Spa in San Antonio is known for their customized, European facials that are accompanied by an added bonus: a paraffin hand treatment.


So, indulge yourself and steal a moment’s escape this holiday season. You'll be thanking yourself when you catch a glimpse of your glowing, bikini-clad skin reflecting off the crystal clear waters of your destination vacation.
