Skin care tips from Spa Tropique

Summertime is approaching which means you'll be exposing your skin and absorbing the "sunshine vitamin", Vitamin D.  And while it's great to enjoy the sunny skies while they last (unless, of course, you happen to live like me, in the perennially pleasant Turks and Caicos), the sun's glorious golden rays can take their toll on your delicate skin.

Tips to save your skin from sun
After living on the tropical Turks and Caicos Islands in the golden glow of the sun for more than a decade (in some ways it's a love/hate relationship), I've had to learn how to replenishand rejuvenate our beautiful skin in a land where the environment can only be called ‘skin-challenging’ or in layman terms, “Oh my goodness! My skin! My skin!’

So I've developed a menu of treatments to help visitors protect their skin and rejuvenate their bodies. Since a lot of people come to the Turks and Caicos to relax and unwind, or spend time with their families, I've tried to create something for everyone.  Many of our visitors come to our beautiful island for rest and relaxation from their stressful lives. Work, family and responsibility all add up to one simple word: Stress.

Banishing Stress and her boyfriend Fatigue
Stress and fatigue like to treat our skin like it’s their own, personal playground. They give us breakouts and dry skin, to name just a few.  Wrap those up with sun and salt water and you have the ingredients for the perfect storm of ‘Help! My skin needs some TLC! 

Relax and we will take care of everything else.  In order to help you start dreaming about your softer, smoother and more beautifully hydrated skin, I am going to share some of our most delicious Spa Tropique spa packages.
So make yourself a daiquiri, settle in and dream of our beautiful island :)
