When we talk about getting ready for summer, our wardrobes are usually first on the agenda. Because let’s face it, who wants to be overheating in jeans in July? However, there’s another important area of prep to address — skincare.
Think about it, your skin is put through a lot in the space of a few months, going from freezing cold to damp, rainy weather, before suddenly adjusting to temperatures of more than 20ºC. That’s why your skin deserves as much, if not more, TLC than your wardrobe.
Don’t worry; this doesn’t involve any DIY treatments, because there’s a clinic in Vancouver that has you covered — SkinGlow Laser & Rejuvenation. The Yaletown skincare and laser clinic specializes in rejuvenation treatments for adults with young or mature skin who want to have a natural, healthy glow.
Before you start researching treatment options available at the clinic, here’s a look at the treatment that will get you ready for summer.
During the summer months, your skin needs as much hydration as it can get. And that’s where a hydrafacial treatment comes in. This non-invasive treatment takes facials to a whole new level to restore your radiance, and it includes everything from skin resurfacing with deep cleansing, to hydration, exfoliation, pore extraction, and antioxidant protection.
The beauty of the hydrafacial is that it’s suitable and customizable for all skin types. So whether you’ve got oily, sensitive, or combination skin, it will work for you. As a celebrity favourite (Beyoncé-approved) treatment, it takes less than 40 minutes to complete and there’s no downtime involved, so you can even book an appointment on your lunch break. Because, why not?

Pregnant or nursing moms can also benefit from hydrafacial treatments as the system works by infusing nutrients into the skin using vortex fusion technology, followed by an LED light red and blue light for calming the skin and killing bacteria. Best of all, it results in a healthy glow.
If you’re looking for a way to allow more product absorption and to feed your skin with essential nutrients, you can couple your hydrafacial with a dermaplaning treatment. These services are often combined to provide more enhanced skincare results.
A simple and safe exfoliating procedure, dermaplaning removes the skin of dead cells and those fine vellus hairs you call “peach fuzz.” Using light, feather-style strokes, a scalpel gently abrades the surface of the skin to remove a buildup of dirt and oil in the follicles. It’s a painless procedure and your skin feels instantly smooth and supple afterwards.

These treatments are favourites for brides and anyone getting ready for summer events. But since you don’t need to have a reason to invest in you, why not treat yourself this season?
