Summer Beauty Top Tips From Bishop’s Stortford’s Best Beauty & Skin Clinic
The summer months can be harsh on your skin so check out these top tips from Bishop’s Stortford’s best skin clinic, beauty salon & spa to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
Heat, humidity and the sun’s harmful rays increase your risk of sunburn, premature skin ageing and greasy, sweaty, blocked pores – so make sure you look after your skin!
Read on to find out which treatments we recommend to ensure you look your best over summer and don’t forget that we also offer top to toe beauty treatments such as hair removal, lash & brow treatments, and manicures and pedicures!
TIP 1: Wear a Sun Protection Factor 30-50 to slow down the ageing process and keep your skin in optimal condition. We recommend a high SPF sun cream all year round – not just over the summer months.
TIP 2: Avoid tanning your skin but, if you MUST, make sure this is a gradual process. Tanning greatly increases the risk of skin cancer as the sun’s ultraviolet rays destroy and damage some skin cells. Tanning also leads to premature skin ageing, sun spots and wrinkles!
TIP 3: Even if you wear a high SPF cream, you may see an increase in skin pigmentation during the summer months. We highly recommend the SkinCeuticals Expert Skin Brightening Facial designed to correct hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. We offer several effective high-tech facial treatments for sun spots including Venus Versa Photofacials.
TIP 4: If the summer sun has left your pores clogged up and resulted in break-outs, have an anti-bacterial LED Light Mask treatment at our skin clinic in Bishop’s Stortford.
TIP 5: If your lips have become dry, cracked and sore, invest in a nourishing lip balm with SPF.
TIP 6: Once summer is over, book into the Skin Clinic at Urban Spa in Bishop’s Stortford for a high-quality Dermalogica facial so we can clear clogged pores and prevent breakouts through expert exfoliation and extraction.
TIP 7: We offer personalised treatments aimed at reshaping, slimming and sculpting the most troublesome areas, along with specific steps to target even the most resistant cellulite! These treatments are the perfect complement to any diet and exercise routine. The CACI Electro Cellulite Massage and Venus Versa Body Shaping & Cellulite Reduction treatments are our most popular and effective.
TIP 8: Don’t forget those ‘finishing touches’ either! Our skilled beauty therapists can have you looking fabulous from top to toe with a range of beauty treatments including lash extensions, lash lifting and brow shaping and tinting.
TIP 9: Defuzz! Get rid of unwanted hair on the legs, underarms, bikini line, back, chest, face… We offer the more traditional waxing and threading as well as long-lasting IPL hair removal.
TIP 10: Look after your hair! Our fabulous Hair by Elements Salon is just a hop and a skip away! The talented stylists can help with all your hair needs including cutting, styling, colouring, hair extensions and hair smoothing.
