Honey and salt massage: a Forte Village’s exclusive treatment
Preparing the skin for the sun: what are the secrets for a perfect tan?
The honey and salt massage is a mix of softness and energy. Together with essential oils, it purifies and smoothes the skin, preparing it for the sun.
Summer is coming! So, we need to prepare the skin for getting the perfect tan, preventing erythema, sunburn, spots and wrinkles. A healthy and golden complexion, in fact, is the result of a journey that starts in spring and includes a healthy diet, rich in fruit, vegetables and water. But also sun supplements, moisturizers and exfoliating treatments such as the honey and salt massage.
Therefore, a homogeneous and lasting tan is the result of careful preparation of the skin for the sun after the long cold months. During winter, the skin is under layers of clothing but exposed to the stress of cold temperatures and the harmful effects of pollution.
What is tanning? It may seem a simple element of beauty that makes the skin golden and radiant. Actually, it is a defense reaction of the organism following the exposure to sun ultraviolet rays. In fact, the skin changes color due to a greater release of melanin which protects it from possible damage caused by the sun’s rays. In other words, tanning is a natural filter that the skin produces to defend itself from solar radiation. For this reason, it is important to take care of the skin health and expose it to the sun gradually, only after preparing it in the right way.
For a beautiful and even tan, a deep cleansing of the skin is necessary. In fact, it frees it from impurities, dead cells and promotes natural cell renewal.
A professional enzymatic peeling is ideal for the face. On the other hand, a honey and salt massage is excellent for the body. Indeed, it purifies the skin and prepares it for sunbathing. After exfoliation, creams with hyaluronic acid, argan oil or shea butter ensure hydration. They counteract cell oxidation and skin dryness, giving a more compact appearance and a tan without spots or blemishes.
Nourishing the skin is essential for maintaining a good hydrolipic balance. For this reason, nutrition also plays a fundamental role. Foods rich in beta-carotene and vitamin E, such as carrots, tomatoes, apricots, melon, oranges, peaches, grapefruit, berries, asparagus, spinach and peppers, stimulate the production of melanin and maintain the skin elastic and toned. Of course, plenty of water is necessary to oxygenate the tissues and facilitate the elimination of toxins.
In addition, skin health allies are supplements of vitamins A and C, flavonoids, lycopene and coenzyme Q10. Indeed, they fight free radicals, one of the main causes of premature cell aging, and prevent the formation of sunspots.
Remember that proper exposure to the sun doesn’t just give the skin an amber shade. It also promotes the synthesis of vitamin D. This vitamin is essential for bone mineralization and the proper functioning of the immune system.
