Spa Quick Fixes 

  •  Facial scrub.  Useful for all skin types, a great way to remove dead skin cells is to add a bit of salt or sugar to your cleanser or soap just before washing your face. However, don’t add the salt or sugar to the cleanser bottle or container, as combining them for an extended time can change the chemical constituency of the product.
  •  Vinegar peel.  The acidity in  vinegar  is  another  good way  to  remove  dead  skin cells,  though  it  should  only be  used  for  dry,  flaky  or  oily skin, and definitely  not  for sensitive  skin.  Start  by  mixing 1/4  to  1/2  cup  certified organic  vinegar  to  one  cup pure  water.  Next,  cut  eye  and nose holes out of a washcloth, then  soak  the  cloth  in  the vinegar  mixture.  Place  the cloth  on  your  face  for  up  to 25  minutes  and  relax  while the vinegar works. Ask your esthetician about any of the spa’s treatments you can partake in that provide beautiful summer skin, and also inquire about products you can take home to prolong the results of your spa visit.
