Protect your skin

61837584 - protect sunscreen applied to the face of cute young girlAll summer, you were vigilant. You slathered everyone in sight with high-SPF sunblock. Now winter is here, and the sunblock is packed away with swimsuits, goggles and inflatable pool toys. They’re in hibernation until you open the swimming pool again in the spring.

Without realizing it, you’ve opened yourself to the same risk factors that sent you running for sunblock in the first place, whether you’re hitting the slopes or soaking sore muscles in your Skovish spa. Here are a few reasons you should continue to protect your skin in cold temperatures:

  • The winter sun is sending down the same UVA rays that wreak havoc in the summer. These rays age your skin and raise the risk of skin cancer. Rays can also be reflected back onto your skin by snow. Don’t just put on some sunscreen, repeat the process as often as needed.
  • Don’t forget your beautiful smile. Those lips need serious protection from winter’s one-two punch of sun and wind. Consider a soothing lip balm that includes sunscreen.
  • Finally, give your body a helping hand. Eat vegetables and fruits such as peppers, watermelon and tomatoes that are high in antioxidants. They’re good news for your skin’s health.

In all, it’s just one more stress you can scratch off your list before soaking in your Skovish spa. (We heard that sigh of relief!)

Gifts for the spa-lover

49744612_S (2)Do you still have a few names on your gift list? Or maybe you’re looking for a way to get in good with your favorite spa buddy?

If so, you’re in luck. We’ve got some ideas that will make your loved ones have a Christmas that is merry and bright and that keeps them smiling into the new year.

How about:

  • A towel heater. Imagine stepping out of the hot tub and into the warm embrace of a warm, terry-cloth blanket. You know your friends are going to send warm thoughts your way every time they use it.
  • Maintenance service. Sometimes, the people who most benefit from the therapeutic features of a hot tub aren’t able to keep up on the maintenance. Fortunately, Skovish Pools and Spas offers weekly, bi-weekly and monthly maintenance service calls. It’s a perfect gift for your favorite spa owner. (And selfishly, you’ll know you’re stepping into a properly maintained hot tub when you come to visit.)
  • A floating hot-tub cover. This blanket of sorts, which can be trimmed to size, increases energy efficiency and protects the underside of the cover from hot-tub chemicals. It also cuts down on evaporation, saving money on your buddy’s water bill.

We could list many other gifts, of course, including a floating drink tray, waterproof playing cards and a mug proclaiming your love of hot tubs. But we think you get the idea! Give us a call at Skovish Pools and Spas if we can help.
