Summerize your Skin

We’re all about summer this week on the M Point of View. Depending upon where you live, the summer sun feels different, but here in Vegas, it can be intense this July and August. Earlier this week we gave you some great summer travel tips, and today we’re headed to Spa Mio to learn about some incredible products that will help you “summerize” your skin from our Spa Manager, Kate Wind.


To achieve an even tan this summer, Kate recommends Kimberly Parry Organic Cane Sugar Scrub with Peppermint and Sage Leaf. “This is the perfect product to exfoliate before heading to the pool,” she said. “It will leave your skin feeling fresh and renewed.”  Another recommended product is MoroccanOil’s Body Buff. Made from orange peel, it’s a natural exfoliator that gently buffs your skin. When combined with Argan oil, vitamin E, avocado, sweet almond, safflower and sesame oil your skin will experience a renewed softness and smoothness before undergoing the sun’s rays.

Body Bronzer & Sunscreen

There are many, many bronzers on the market today, but few come close to GloMineral’s Body Bronzer. It is good for all skin types to create a subtle but immediate all over tan. Best of all, the lotion formula enhances your own skin tone.  “It looks incredibly natural,” says Kate and it adds a hint of shimmer from light reflecting particles.

The biggest tip– never forget your sunscreen! “It is your best anti-aging defense,” says Kate. She uses Obagi Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35. It’s creamy but absorbs quickly and it won’t make your face greasy. Wear it under your makeup or with tinted moisturizer.

Moisturizer for your Face & Body

Most of us switch our skin and body care each season because our skin has different demands in the summer versus the winter. Spa Mio’s team likes Sun Shea Butter Body Lotion from Zents. Besides being handmade, this lotion contains green tea, chamomile, and elder flower in addition to shea butter so it’s moisturizing and calming. Plus, it’s fragranced. Who wouldn’t want to smell like a fresh, summer day? It’s an allure magazine favorite, so try it on your next visit.

GloMinerals Therapeutics Pure Hydration for face ranks number one with Spa Mio. It contains pink guava which is rich in tannins, flavonoids, vitamins, fiber, and fatty acids. What’s cool about this product is that it’s a lightweight gel and also contains squalane which is a greaseless oil that deeply moisturizes, nourishes, and plumps the skin. It’s the perfect addition to any skin regimen.

Last but not least, Kate reminds you to also protect your hair!  All Oribe styling products contain UV protection for your hair.
