Who can resist a slice of juicy, refreshing watermelon on a hot summer day? Just like how a bite of watermelon hydrates your palette, this fruit can also be used to hydrate your skin and treat a variety of skin conditions like sun damage, blemishes and more. Considering the summertime staple is made up of 93 percent water and contains skin-perfecting vitamins like vitamin A, B6 and C, it’s no surprise watermelon can help you achieve that healthy summertime glow we all crave. In order to reap the full benefits of watermelon, Monarch Skin Rejuvenation Center is introducing the Watermelon Facial! Here are just a few of the many benefits this hydrating, refreshing facial has to offer.
Remove Dead Skin
This relaxing treatment begins with microdermabrasion, a painless procedure in which an aesthetician uses a diamond-grade tip along with suction to remove any dead skin buildup from your face. Our aesthetician Michele Hodge believes it’s great to do microdermabrasion before a facial because it allows your makeup go on smoother afterwards and even helps your skin care products penetrate deeper into your skin.
Next, the aesthetician will apply the Watermelon Mask that will actually conform to your face. The mask will help minimize pore size, reduce inflammation and contains hyaluronic acid to give skin a boost in hydration. Once applied to your face, the mask feels very cooling and refreshing. Feel free to close your eyes and enjoy 15 minutes of peaceful bliss while the vitamins go to work repairing your skin. After 15 minutes, the mask is removed and your skin will look dewy and glowing. The aesthetician will then apply topical vitamin C which neutralizes free radicals that can damage your skin and a tinted sunscreen to your face.
Quick and Budget Friendly
Many women choose the Watermelon Facial because it’s a quick treatment that can be done over a lunch break. For working women on a busy schedule, it can be tough to find time for some relaxation and spa treatments. The Watermelon Facial can be completed in 20-25 minutes and afterwards your skin looks so amazing, you may find you don’t need to reapply your makeup! Best of all, this facial is budget-friendly and comes in at only $85.
