A Note From Beth

bethHappy May!  I love May. The weather is almost perfect, flowers are everywhere, and the air is fresh. It is a great time of the year to celebrate renewal. I also love this month because we celebrate Mother's Day!  We all have a mom that we love and appreciate and this month is your opportunity to really show it.

In this issue, we have some great ideas for you on how to show your appreciation.   Read the featured article.

Also, this month is Skin Cancer Awareness Month: Did you know that over 2 million people in the United States are diagnosed with a skin cancer each year with a lifetime risk of 1 in 5. There are many different types of skin cancers. Skin Essentials and Dr. Riley Greene are committed to helping you keep your skin healthy and protected by using the right sun protection and getting yearly skin cancer screenings!

We are making this month the "gift with purchase" month!  Check out all the great promotions and gifts we have prepared for you to enjoy!

We'll see you at the spa!

6 Ways to Show Mom You Love Her

Though we all try to show it year round, Mother's Day is a special time to remind Mom just how much we truly care, love, and appreciate her. While Sunday brunch, flowers, a heart-felt gift, and a tear-jerking card are usually on the agenda, here are six more ways to show mom just how much you care.

1. Luxuriate at the Spa: Naturally, a day at the spa is a wonderful indulgence for Mom and a great way to spend time together. Relax, de-stress, and enjoy some good old-fashioned girl talk over mani/pedi's or a side-by-side massage. We have a wonderful menu of treatments to pamper Mom. Call us at 720.283.0492 or click here to reserve one of the promotions so you can plan the perfect day.

2. Check Something Off Her To-Do List: We all have an ever-growing to-do list with that one errand or chore that just never seems to get done. Take a look at Mom's to-do list and check one big item off of it for her. It might be updating the software on her computer, helping her plant a garden, or cleaning out her closet for some spring cleaning. Whatever it is that Mom's been dreading doing, do it for her with love!

3. Participate in Her Hobby for a Day: Does mom have a hard time getting someone to see a play, the opera, or the ballet with her? Has she asked you to take a cooking, dance, or gardening class together? Show Mom that you care about her personal interests by just saying "yes" the next time she asks you to join her for one of her hobbies, or better yet, offer to take her on her activity of choice for this Mother's Day weekend.

4. Take a Trip Down Memory Lane: : Schedule some "remember when...?"  time with Mom. Dig out that old box of photos, letters, and keepsakes and sit down together to create a scrapbook or photo album of the special moments the two of you have shared; from the time she brought you home from the hospital to the cup of tea you're sharing right now for this trip down memory lane.

5. Socialize & Digitize Her! ! Learning new technology and social media can be intimidating and challenging for anyone, so help Mom out with this! Get her set up on Facebook to connect with long-distance friends and family or help her create a fun Pinterest board for her arts and crafts. You can also digitize her favorite CDs by uploading them into iTunes and syncing her music with her phone.

6. Go For a Walk: We all need to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life once in a while, such as, a nice long chat over a slow walk with Mom. It's a great way to really catch up, burn a few calories, and take in some fresh air and nature at the same time!

bethShelley's favorite product:
Total Resurfacing Masque

I love this product because it offers immediate results; smoothing out texture and brightening the skin.  I like to apply in the shower and leave it on allowing the steam to activate the ingredients.  When I am ready to get out, I massage the product into my skin for one minute.  This will encourage all the dead skin to be exfoliated right off!  My skin is smooth and bright, my products penetrate better and my makeup goes on perfectly!

Top the treat with your favorite whipped cream for the white of this Red, White & Blue dessert! Add a little crunch with crushed pignolias (pine nuts) sprinkled on top. Keep it fresh - buy organic farmers' market berries and all-natural organic honey.  And, keep it healthy with a low-calorie and fat-free whipped cream.

Bon Appetite!

Ask a Therapist

Q: Is it enough to use my cream for sun protection or do I need to use a sunblock too?

A: We recommend a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15.  It can be in a moisturizer or a separate product.  We always recommend using your makeup as added protection. 

Here is what to look for in a sunscreen:
a. Broad Spectrum: Protection against both UVB and UVA rays
b. Choose a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15
c. Don't be fooled by "water proof" claims. Reapply every 80 minutes!
d. Look for zinc oxide & titanium dioxide (non- chemical ingredients) and don't forget your lips!
