The Post-Vacation Skincare Recovery Guide 

Essential Treatments to Rejuvenate After Your Week Away 

Post vacation recovery guide

Doesn’t it sometimes feel like you need a vacation after your vacation? The sand, the sun, not to mention the food and alcohol, all combined with the hassle of travel can leave you feeling disheveled from your routine and a little burnt out (or just… sunburned).  

After touching down back home, treat yourself to restoring your skin’s natural radiance to help you maintain that vacation state of mind. From luxurious facials to specialized skincare, we’ve compiled a list of must-have treatments to ensure a smooth landing back to regular life.

The DiamondGlow Facial

Bounce back to your regularly-schedule beauty regimen with a DiamondGlow facial, an oh-so-satisfying treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction and infusion for unmatched skin renewal on the face and neck. This non-invasive procedure utilizes a diamond-tipped wand to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead cells, extracting debris collected during your stay and promoting a more even tone.

Customized serums are then infused into the skin, addressing specific concerns such as hydration, brightening or clarifying. The result? A radiant complexion that will make your vacation glow last longer.

Post-vacation detox

7-Day Detox

After straying away from your regular exercise routine and indulging in (let’s call it) a few adult beverages, it’s essential to recalibrate your wellness habits and balance your gut health. Our own functional wellness expert Dr. Marguerite Weston suggests partaking in a seven-day, at-home detox program to give you the reset you need to snap back to reality.

Need some help getting started? Dr. Weston has developed a 7-Day Detox program that is available for purchase.

Haven’t Been Feeling Your Best Recently — Even While On Vacation?

Dr. Weston also offers an expansive catalog of wellness services, including hormone therapy, gut health optimization and weight management programs. She has her own line of medical-grade wellness supplements to help replenish what you’ve been missing in your life so you can resolve the root cause of your discomfort!

The Perfect Derma Chemical Peel

Appropriate for all skin tones, the Perfect Derma is a mid-depth chemical peel designed to address sun damage, fine lines and uneven skin texture, which may have been aggravated during your time in the sun. More advanced chemical peels — like this one — exfoliate the outer layers of the skin, stimulating cell turnover and revealing fresher, more youthful-looking skin underneath.

We invite you to consult with one of our qualified skin care professionals to determine the most suitable peel for your skin type and concerns!

Custom Skin Care — Because You Deserve It!

A personalized skincare routine can help you recover from extensive sun exposure while enhancing and maintaining the results of your cosmetic treatments. Our experts work directly with you to develop a regimen tailored to your skin type, concerns and your lifestyle. A customized routine may include cleansers, moisturizers, serums, and targeted treatments to address specific issues such as acne, pigmentation, or aging.

Investing in high-quality, medical-grade skincare products will help you maintain your vacation glow long after you’ve returned home.

Other Options to Consider When Returning Home

Apart from the treatments mentioned above, you might also explore other options such as microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing or non-surgical skin tightening procedures including Morpheus8. These treatments can further enhance your overall rejuvenation journey, targeting specific concerns and delivering impressive results.

Don’t Lose That Refreshed Glow!

By incorporating a range of cosmetic treatments into your post-vacation routine, you can extend the benefits of your time away and maintain that vibrant, relaxed aura. From luxurious facials like the DiamondGlow to sustainable wellness programs, there are numerous options available to help you look and feel your best. 

So, step off the plane and into a world of beauty and self-care, and let your post-vacation glow shine on!
