Note from Judi

Well this year is officially half over. Some people are anxiously counting the weeks until Christmas. I, on the other hand, am going to savor summer. This is a great time to slow down, spend more time outdoors, and connect with family. With our annual sale, graduations, Father's Day, and all the festivities, it seems like the party never ends.

I want you to know how much we appreciate every one of you. I promise to get back to work with my team to continue to bring you the latest innovations in products and technology. We are passionate about what we do. We will also be adding a wellness component with more M'lis. Look for organic shakes and supplements on our shelves soon.

Enjoy and take some time to nurture yourself body and sole (reflex LOL).

Look better, feel better, and live better,

It’s UV Safety Month

SPF NumbersMost people protect their skin from the elements such as extreme heat, bitter cold, and excessive sunlight. But, a lot of people don’t think about protecting their skin from harmful ultraviolet rays, which come from the sun and tanning beds.

An alarming 1.2 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year due to people regularly exposing their skin to powerful and damaging UV rays. Do you know whenever you frequently expose your skin to ultraviolet rays, it causes many complications other than just skin cancer? Some of the problems repeated UV exposure can cause are wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and leathery skin.

Take these simple steps to protect your skin every day.

Made In The Shade: During peak sunlight hours, which are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., stay out of the sun. If you can’t find a shady area, limit your sun exposure as much as possible or just stay indoors.

Take Cover: Wearing long sleeved shirts, long skirts, and pants are smart ways to shield your skin from the sun. You can protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses that are UV-resistant as well as wearing sun visors. Protect your scalp by using wide-brimmed hats whenever you’re outside. Be sure to protect your skin on overcast days as well.

Don’t Feel the Burn: Approximately 2.1% of men and women will be diagnosed with melanoma during their lifetime. Each sunburn a person gets increases this risk. Using a Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every time you’re outdoors can help you avoid sunburns as well as prevent irreversible damage to your skin.

A Reflection on You: The sun’s harmful rays can be reflected (and amplified) by water, sand, and even large windows. This can increase your risk of sunburn, even if you’re in a shaded area.

Practicing preventative outdoor skin care year-round is a smart and healthy thing to do to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Stop by Glam Spa to find out more information about UV skin protection.


Summer Safety

Child Swimming in PoolOne of the best times of the year is summertime! It’s the perfect time to participate in fun outdoor activities such as grilling, swimming, and camping! People need to be proactive when it comes to summer safety so everyone will be able to enjoy all the summer festivities while remaining safe.

Here are some suggestions to keep this summer a safe one.

Swimming Safety: Whether in a pool, in the ocean, or at a lake, remember these simple tips.

  • Only swim where there’s a lifeguard present.
  • Always swim in a designated swimming area.
  • Stay alert and check weather conditions via weather apps before entering any body of water.
  • Don’t drink alcohol or ingest medication before you swim.
  • Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear a life vest.
  • NEVER dive headfirst into shallow water or into water where you think it’s deep enough.
  • Always supervise children while they’re swimming in the water.

Safety When Grilling: Grilling is a favorite American pastime but it can quickly turn into an unsafe situation with mishaps such as burns to people or pets, and fires in yards, homes, or parks. Follow these precautions to avoid injuries to family members and damage to your home.

  • NEVER leave a grill unattended when in use.
  • Make sure to always grill in an open outdoor area.
  • Make sure everyone — including pets — keeps a safe distance from the grill.
  • Use long-handled tools especially made for use on grills to keep the chef safe.
  • Be sure to check the coals are completely cooled down before leaving the grill unattended.

Keep your summer fun and safe by following these tips and enjoy your time with your family and friends!

Have a happy and safe summer from all of us here at Glams Spa!
