If you’re like us, your skin could use a break from the heat after a summer full of fun in the sun. So we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite ways to beat the heat in beautiful Boca Raton while still enjoying the last weeks of summer.

Pamper Yourself

There’s no better way to close out your summer than to treat yourself to a little self-care and pampering. These activities are especially great ideas for anyone who may be noticing signs of sun damage on their skin, such as dark spots, a dull, rough texture, or fine lines and wrinkles. And better still, they all take place in the cool indoors and out of the sun!

Get a Facial

Getting a facial is one of the quintessential ways to pamper yourself, and while they are certainly relaxing, facials also come along with a variety of benefits for your mental health and skin health. Studies have shown that facial massages have the ability to significantly reduce stress and improve your mood by stimulating the sympathetic nervous system. So if you find yourself a little mentally worn-out after a busy summer, treating yourself to a back-to-school facial can have proven benefits on your mood!

Additionally, facials are a great way to help your skin recover from getting a little too much sun. HydraFacial® is one of the most popular non-surgical skin treatments right now, and it’s easy to see why. In one relaxing 30-minute session, your skin is deeply cleansed, exfoliated, rehydrated, and protected from damage. HydraFacials are also well-tolerated for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and there’s no downtime whatsoever afterward.

Spa Days

Speaking of relaxation, take advantage of Spa Days in Fort Lauderdale from August through September to recharge your mind, body, and skin. During this time, participating hotels and day spas in the Fort Lauderdale area are offering special deals and discounts on a range of services, including facials, massages, foot scrubs, and more. All that is left for you to do is kick back, relax, and enjoy a skin-soothing massage at a great price.

Miami Hotel Months

During Miami Hotel Months, which runs from June to September, it’s never been easier (or more affordable!) to treat yourself to some time away in a relaxing resort. Find countless discount offers and special promotions for some of the most sought-after resorts, hotels, and boutique accommodations in Miami on the Miami Hotel Months’ official website.

Get Your Nails Done

Looking to stay local? Grab a facial, and then check out one of the top-ranking nail salons in Boca Raton for a fun afternoon out of the sun. InStyle Nail Spa, Mansion Nail Spa, Jenny Nail Spa, and Opus Nails & Spa are just a few of the many amazing nail salons in the area offering high-end manicures and pedicures.

Date Spots
