GENERAL ADVICE Due to the deeply cleansing and restoring nature of skincare treatments such as scrubs, massages and facials, it is wise to follow some post-care guidelines to max-imise and prolong the effects after a spa treatment. The most common advice is to drink lots of water, avoid the sun for a period of time, and stay away from harsh cleansers and heavy makeup. Ask your therapist for timeframes and more details. 62 • • • • • MAY/JUNE 2017 “Where When How -Turks & Caicos Islands”
