Getting Your Skin Ready For Summer Vacation: Ideas For You

When your winter break is over and you head back to college for second semester, you cannot help but look ahead not only to your spring break, but even further to your summer vacation. As you think about summer vacation and the possibility of experiencing warm weather once again, you also begin to think about how unprepared your winter body is for the swimsuits and shorts you plan to wear when you are free again over your summer vacation. While you still have plenty of time to prepare yourself, get to know some of the ways that you can get your body ready for summer vacation and get the process started.

Laser Hair Removal

Smooth legs are the name of the game during the summer, whether you are on the beach or out and about on the town. But shaving your legs constantly and worrying about stubble and re-growth can be a major pain. This is why laser hair removal is one of the best hair removal treatments that you can get during the winter months to prepare yourself for the shorts and swimsuits of summer.

Laser hair removal is a dermatological treatment that is performed in the doctor's office. It is one of the most effective forms of permanent hair removal around.  The laser, which is a form of light energy (like an x-ray) that is concentrated, is aimed at the hair follicles on your legs. It will damage the follicle, essentially closing it off for future hair growth while simultaneously disintegrating the hair.

While laser hair removal does get rid of your leg hair permanently, it can take several treatments to remove all of the hair that you want gone. As such, you will want to get started in the process as soon as possible.


Winter weather and the stress of your second semester of school combined can wreak havoc on your face and complexion. You do not want your face looking haggard or blemished when finals are over and your summer vacation begins.

To prevent this from being your reality, you can give microdermabrasion treatments a try. Microdermabrasion is an option available through your dermatologist's office. It involves your dermatologist using a spray on your skin that contains microcrystals. Then, the dermatologist will use a small machine to rub the spray into the skin and exfoliate it.

This process removes the deal skin cells from your face and reveals smoother and younger looking skin. You can get microdermabrasion treatments throughout the semester or just right before summer vacation depending on the extent of the effects you want.

Now that you know a few of the ways that you can begin to get your body ready for summer vacation, you can get the process started as soon as possible. You will be looking fresh and fabulous before you know it and in plenty of time for summer.
