Summer time is all about BBQs, vacation, pool time… and looking great in your swimsuit! Our fabulous friends at Eurasia Spa in Scottsdale shared some of their beauty tips with us to help you look your absolute best!
1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! The most beneficial thing you can do for your appearance is to drink lots of water. Hydration helps your skin stay moisturized, boosts your metabolism and keeps your energy up.
2. Skip the iced coffee and sip some iced green tea! Studies show that green tea increases fat burning and boosts your body’s metabolic rate. Green tea also helps to slow down the aging process with its high antioxidant levels. When applied topically, the catechins found in green tea act as an anti-inflammatory so it’s beneficial in calming acne or soothing sensitive skin. Green tea leaves are also a great exfoliator because of their coarseness.
3. Tone with Rice Water. Rice water has been used for centuries by women in Asia for beautiful skin and hair. The next time you make rice…. save the water! Brown Jasmine rice contains B vitamins which help promote cell growth and stimulate blood flow. Use it as a facial toner to revitalize your skin’s natural glow.
4. Cool down with a mint mask if you had a long day out in the sun. Fresh mint helps to gently and naturally reduce the appearance of acne scars and suns spots. Grind or blend mint leaves into a paste and then apply to your face for 15 minutes. Do this once a week.
5. Get a massage. Looking to smooth and tone for that two-piece? Massage doesn’t just feel great, it helps your skin by increasing blood flow, aiding in lymphatic drainage and detoxifying systems of the body. Try the Body Contouring Treatment at Eurasia Spa, which includes a detox soak using seaweed, mineral salts, and essential oils in our Japanese Soaking Tub followed by a warming wrap with our signature Chai Tea Mud. The treatment finishes with a vigorous massage targeting the front and back of the thighs… you’ll be swimsuit ready for that pool party!
