When you hear the words Valentine’s Day, the first thoughts that probably come to mind are love and romance (or the lack thereof for some). Well, it’s time to part ways with that old school of thought! What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by doing something good for you? Here are four different ways to help get the ball rolling.
Turn Up Your Fitness Goals
Around this time of year, many people are working on their New Year’s resolution of getting into better shape. But if you find that you’re starting to lack motivation, considering changing up your workout by investing in something different and fun, like a booty-blasting spin class or aerial yoga.
Another way to get more out of your workout is to complement it with a series of non-invasive body shaping treatments. Look for one that uses safe energy like radio frequency (RF) to help shrink the volume of fat cells, resulting in a smoother, more contoured shape with virtually no pain and no downtime—the perfect complement to your fitness routine.
Give Yourself Some TLC
Everyone could use a little pampering, and there’s no better time than Valentine’s Day to treat yourself. Enjoy a relaxing bubble bath at home, book a one-hour massage after work, indulge in a fresh mani and pedi, or try out a trendy new hairstyle. You’ll be surprised at how moments like these can help you feel a little extra special.
Invest in Yourself
Did you know that a suntan is your skin’s way of protecting itself from damage? Skin reacts to sun exposure by increasing melanin levels, resulting in brown pigmentation or discoloration. This discoloration can fade to an uneven skin tone or red splotches and broken blood vessels.
While darker skin tones may have greater levels of skin-protecting melanin, you can still be affected by ultraviolet rays, causing wrinkles and uneven pigmentation. Melasma, a skin concern that causes gray-brown patches, is also a common side effect of overexposure to sunlight in men and women with darker skin tones.
How to Reduce the Signs of Premature Aging
Sometimes it can be hard to feel like your best self when what you see on the outside doesn’t match how you feel on the inside. If you feel like you need a little push, consider treating yourself to a package of non-surgical treatments that are targeted to your specific areas of concern.
If you’re worried about stubborn fine lines and wrinkles, RF can work wonders to smoothen them out and brighten up your complexion. If your concern is more related to uneven skin tone and sun damage, a skin rejuvenation treatment with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is your go-to fix. And if you’re tired of looking at old acne scars or anything else that impacts your skin texture, a couple of RF-based skin resurfacing treatments may be all you need.
