The sun’s beginning to make itself known once again, and that means plenty of days spent having fun in the sun and working on your tan!
The sun can be exceptionally beneficial but it can also be extremely harmful. At absolute spa we encourage “Safe Sun” practices. The biggest key to this is proper protection.
We are happy to announce that we are currently carrying the highly raved about Consonant Sun Care and Colorescience Sunforgettable lines.
Consonant Sun Care:
Healthy & Effective Broad Spectrum Sun Protection
1) The Perfect Sunscreen – SPF 30
– The Perfect Sunscreen is unlike other 100% natural sunscreens as it is a smooth, non-greasy formula that leaves no white residue. It delivers optimal SPF 30 protection using uniquely micronized (non-nano particle) Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide minerals to block the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays. The newly developed formula has light, hydrating benefits with aloe vera, grape seed and rice bran oil, and evens skin tone with a touch of natural mica tint.
– The Perfect Sunscreen is ideal for days when you’re going to be out in the sun for prolonged periods. It is water resistant, but it is recommended that you re-apply after swimming or doing water sports.
2) 100% Natural Matte Finish Sunscreen – SPF 15
– When it comes to mineral sunscreens, most products are chalky and often leave a white residue on your skin. Not Consonant 100% Natural Matte Finish Sunscreen.
– This sunscreen is ideal for everyday wear. The matte finish makes it a great make-up primer. It is water resistant, but we recommend re-applying after swimming or doing water sports.
Like all Consonant Skincare products, these products are fragrance free, containing no perfume or essential oils.
Achieve the ultimate protection from sun damage and its aging effects with a soft focus finish.

Tips & Tricks
Obtaining the perfect summer glow can sometimes be a daunting task but with our tips and tricks below we guarantee you’ll be well on your way to bronzed glowing skin that will be the envy of everyone at this year’s summer events!
1) Protect! – Your skin is one of the most delicate organs and yet it gets treated the roughest on a day to day basis. Protect your skin from harmful UV rays this summer with Sun Care products with a minimum SPF of 15. To truly protect your skin we recommend avoiding the actual sun to obtain your glowing tanned skin. Instead, get an Au Courant Spray tan, they’re natural looking and 100% safe for all skin types. For those days where you have to be out in the sun, ALWAYS wear an SPF. There’s nothing sexy about Sun burns or skin cancer!
2) Stay Hydrated – to keep your skin hydrated throughout the summer you need to not only apply moisturizer daily but you also need to drink lots of water, this will work to keep to hydrate your precious skin from the inside out.
3) EXFOLIATE! EXFOLIATE! EXFOLIATE! – This is KEY to obtaining an even tan all over. By sloughing off dead skin cells your skin is primed are ready to soak up those summer rays (protected with an SPF of course), or even better, an Au Courant Spray tan!!
(For a daily moisturizer and body scrub we recommend spa binge naturals body rich cream and luffa body scrub, available in Rare White Grapefruit, Vanilla Cocoa, Fresh Rainforest, and Unscented.)
4) Fake it… – There’s nothing wrong with using skin care products to reach that sought after summer glow, in fact, it’s all the rage right now. We recommend Youngblood Mineral Makeup’s Illuminating Body Tint. This product adds a subtle yet noticeable glowing tint to you skin. It is highly moisturizing and is packed with natural oils and antioxidants to do wonders for dry skin. The soft bronze tint helps to even out skin tone, and best of all, it’s non-streaking!
