Hey, we’re a certified organic spa…almost everything makes us think skincare! In the month of May, when Cinco de Mayo blazes its way into Spring, we can’t help but want to share our knowledge on just how fantastic natural elements are for a healthy, happy glow.
Spices hold the pungent power to provide antioxidants and protect you on a cellular level. They fight against harmful elements found in your body and in the environment called free radicals (UV light, smoke, pollutants, and the rest of their collagen-diminishing buddies).
The strength of spices of course does not stop at skin care – the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties they contain also help to protect against heart disease and cancer, promote quick healing in the body, and assist with healthy weight goals.
There are countless varieties of spices that pack some fiery fierceness when it comes to protecting and enhancing your skin. One of our favorites is paprika. Part of the Capsicum Family (think ancho, aleppo chile, cayenne pepper, etc.), paprika is a great source of vitamins A and C; super stuff for super skin. It also detoxifies and increases oxygen circulation; hello glow! If you are looking to add a little seasoning to your Spa Treatments, we are proud to offer the innovative Fire & Ice Facial (on special discount through the end of May!), where the powers of paprika are combined with gentle fruit acids to exfoliate and pamper your skin in a way only natural elements can.
Another natural hero in the world of skin care? Say hello to turmeric, our flavorful friend in fighting everything that can devitalize your overall health and appearance. A strong antioxidant called Curcumin and anti-inflammatory elements found in turmeric can fight ailments ranging from acne, hyper-pigmentation, eczema, dullness, and wrinkles. Purely You Spa is always looking to add new and exciting treatments to offer our Members and Guests – stay tuned for a first person account of an at-home facial perfected with a pop of turmeric by one of our Spa Team Members!
So there you have it. Get spicy this month with your skin care, and tell us all about it!
