SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With increased outdoor activity and exposure to harmful UV rays, the summer months are a critical time to protect skin against damage and maintain a healthy skincare routine. As the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, Massage Envy understands the important role facials play in maintaining total body care during the summertime and is introducing its first-ever "Summer Glow Skincare" event.
During July 5 to August 2, members and guests will receive $10 off Massage Envy's four Murad® Healthy Skin facials, specially designed by Dr. Howard Murad, and a free Murad® sample to kick-start proper summer skincare. Members and guests who pre-book an August facial in July will also receive a special Murad® skincare kit. Facial treatments include Environmental Shield® Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, Anti-Aging and Sensitive Skin.
"Achieving that desired summer glow we all strive for starts with setting a healthy skincare regimen," said Sheila Ullery, vice president of retail and merchandising at Massage Envy. "I'm excited that through this event our members and guests will begin their path to a lasting summer glow, and our highly-trained estheticians will be an integral part of helping them look and feel their best."
Regularly-scheduled facials offer a variety of benefits for the health and beauty of skin but also provide many wellness benefits to consider including:
- Emotional Wellness: Estheticians are trained to guide relaxation and remind clients the importance of taking time off for health reasons. Oftentimes, essential oils are used to moisturize the skin but also relieve stress to encourage peace of mind and contentment.
- Increased Circulation: Facial treatments help to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers, increasing the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to cells in the skin.
- Anti-Aging: While there is no way to stop the aging process, regular exfoliation with professional-grade topical products can help to slow and even prevent the visible signs of aging.
"Sun, sweat and other warm weather factors can change the needs of your skin quickly, and getting a facial from a trained esthetician can help you address the effects both during your facial treatment and with at-home care recommendations," said Dr. Howard Murad, M.D, FAAD, founder of Murad, Inc. and the Inclusive Health® movement. "Massage Envy's Murad® Healthy Skin line has provided high-performance skin care to millions of Massage Envy members and guests, and can benefit greatly for continued maintenance not only during the summer months but throughout the year."
