Because it is never to soon to learn healthy hygiene habits, the American Academy of Dermatology recently launched www.kidsskinhealth.org. The website, which was created by dermatologists, teaches children ages 8 to 12 the importance of proper skincare while warning of the negative consequences that might occur, such as pimples, greasy hair, and sunburns, if they don’t follow a healthy regimen. The site also features “It’s a Skin Cell’s Life,” an interactive game starring Sammy the Skin Cell, that is both informative and fun.
Getting into the spirit of the season, guests at Skin Haven Spa Studio (Los Angeles) can reap the benefits of the Organic Pumpkin Cream Body Wrap ($160, 75 minutes). The nourishing treatment begins with a full-body exfoliation using either a dry brush or mitts. Next, Éminence Organic Skin Care’s Pumpkin Cream Body Wrap is applied to the body before clients are wrapped and treated to a scalp massage and reflexology. Once the wrap is removed and the product showered off, clients are given a relaxing massage with Herbal Spice Body Lotion or Vanilla Bean Body Lotion, depending on their preference. There’s no need to worry about calories with this pumpkin treat. For product info, check out the Resources tab above.
