Taking Care Of Your Skin During Spring Skiing

Steamboat Springs sits at an elevation of 6,732, with typically over 200 days of sunshine each year. The dry climate is what makes for our famous champagne powder, but also makes for dry skin. The lack of moisture often accentuates wrinkles when skin isn’t properly hydrated. In the spring, with the sun gleaming off the snow, eyes tend to squint, increasing wrinkles around the eyes. Occasional or frequent sunburns stress the skin and advance the signs of aging. At Life Essentials Day Spa we have a few solutions to help you look and feel younger during spring skiing.

1. If you want a tan but don’t want the harmful UV rays making you look years older than you are, come in for a 20 minute Sunless Spray Tan by Norvell. With different shades to choose from your skin will shine with a healthy glow that makes your friends ask what beach you just came from. The best part of this service is you get a full body tan and not a goggle tan or neck-up tan that comes with skiing in Steamboat Springs.

2. Indulge in a facial. Because we know how harsh the Colorado climate is on your skin, at Life Essentials Day Spa we offer a hydrating facial that focuses specifically on plumping skin, minimizing wrinkles and lines. Vitamins, nutrients, hyaluronic acids and peptides all work to turn back time and have your skin feeling softer and looking younger. For a longer, more intensive treatment, our Intraceutical Anti-Aging Facial helps reduce or eliminate wrinkles and dry skin. Vitamins A, C, D and E help replenish your skin on the cellular level while a collagen treatment plumps skin. Serums moisturize and hydrate skin.

3. Relieve sore muscles. Sports massage or deep tissue massage can change your appearance as much as a facial. Being in pain does not promote smiling or relaxation. Our massages do. We work to release tight muscles, to comfort and support your body after a hard day or many days on the slopes. The result is your body will fall into place, you will move more confidently and comfortably and this tiny thing called a smile will spread across your face.

If you are suffering from the effects of spring skiing, whether it’s through dry skin, over exposed skin, or tight and sore muscles, come and see us at Life Essentials Day Spa so we can have you looking and feeling like a new person.
