Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, and the majority of us are on the edge of our cubicle seats in anticipation of a much deserved holiday. We've made our plans months in advance, we've requested a few extra days off work, and many are spending this week shopping for new bathing suits and proper summer kickoff attire. If your weekend destination includes both water and sunshine, there are a ton of ways to prepare your ultimate brag-worthy beach bod that only require a week (or even less!). Make sure you've checked off your prep list so you have a Memorial Day that you...well, remember!
Exfoliating is always a good idea before embarking on any vacation (although it really should be done every week). It helps remove dead, dull skin cells and instantly makes your skin softer, smoother and more luminous. There are different types of exfoliants for different skin types, as well as products that are specifically for your face or body. For instance, if you're experiencing rough patches that you want to get rid of before your trip, we recommend the Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub. It dramatically smoothes, polishes and energizes skin so you look positively radiant!
While having a tan is always in style, the side effects of tanning too often can be very bad for your skin; dermatologists have been saying for a while that sun exposure is one of the main causes of accelerated aging. Luckily, there are ways to still obtain the perfect glow without having to suffer any skin damage. Airbrush tanning is a quick, easy and harmless way to get that glow, and it lasts anywhere between 1 to 2 weeks. Shelby is our resident Airbrush Tanning technician, and she will work with you on your ideal tan (without making you look like an Oompa Loompa).
Tan Towels are another super fast and easy way to look like a bronze goddess in the sand! Many last minute shoppers opt for these puppies as an alternative to spray tanning, since it can be applied throughout your trip as well as on your own time. Check out our blog on 3 Easy Steps For a Flawless Self Tan to make the most out of your Tan Towels.
Nothing feels better than being careless and fancy free in a swimsuit! If you're going to be dancing in the sunshine, you definitely don't want to be worrying about unwanted and unsightly hair that could creep out at any given moment. The great thing about waxing is that it only requires upkeep once every month, and you are good to go as soon as you leave our salon. If Brazilian waxing is something you're interested in but want to know more about, check out our special edition Brazilian blog written by Got Beauty Founder Tammy Taylor.
This particular service flushes toxins and waste from the lymphatic system, and can create a permanent loss of up to 14" while improving general health, nourishing your skin and contouring the soft areas of the body. This is a favorite of many of our Got Beauty girls. The more of these you do, the more effective they are, and you literally begin to feel like a new person. While diet and exercise are always going to be the best way to keep the greatest figure that you can have, Body Wrapping is a great way to see quick results before an upcoming trip.
