Have You Burned Bridges With Your Skin Care?

Avoid the burn this summer by establishing a summer skin care regimen! The summer just started so take advantage of it while you can; good skin health to take you through the entire summer is right here at Elizabeth Grady. Your DO’S and DON’TS under the sun…



DO make sure to wear sunscreen – with a recommended minimum SPF of 15 or 30. This should be applied at least 15-30 minutes before you enjoy the sun. Try the Elizabeth Grady sunscreen, and make sure to apply on the lips, eye area, ears, and neck as well!

DO have a facial at least once a month. This will make sure you get rid of excess dirt, oils and impurities that build up during summer months. Also, this will help prevent breakouts!

DO wear your favorite hat! Long visors or rims will help block the rays to prevent burning on your face and eye area. Pair the hat with some sunglasses and you’re good to go. Not only do the sunglasses protect your eyes, but it will keep you from squinting! (This being a major contributor to those lines around the eyes, we want to prevent those too!)

DO moisturize your body and face before and after sun exposure. Being exposed to the sun takes a toll on the natural moisture in your skin, so replenish with moisturizer – and water as well…drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration the sun may cause. Our suggestion: Elizabeth Grady’s Microcare Replenish.

DO avoid the sun during its strongest rays. Between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.: enjoy the shade.



DON’T stop using your sunscreen once you get that tan! You still need the coverage regardless.

DON’T expect all parts of your body to tan equally. Some of the more delicate body parts may need extra time to catch up to speed – less clothing means more exposure!

DON’T overdo your time in the sun. Sun exposure accelerates the skin’s aging process and increases your risk of skin cancer.

DON’T underestimate the importance of regular facial treatments and a proper skin care routine to maintain healthy, smooth, younger-looking skin.

At Elizabeth Grady, all of our make-up is non-comedogenic (non-clogging) and provides broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays that contribute to premature aging of the skin. You can find an SPF in all of our make-up so you’re ready for the sun at any time. 

Get beach ready with Elizabeth Grady this summer and toss some SPF in that beach bag!

Wax It Away For The Summer Days!

This season its okay to settle for less – after all, less is more! Right now, come take advantage of the BUY THREE GET ONE FREE Waxing Sale at Elizabeth Grady! Beach weather is on its way…are you ready?

At Elizabeth Grady we have waxing for everyone! Go with a full bikini or Brazilian bikini: leave a little, or take it all off. With our estheticians being experts in the area of waxing it’s safe, gentle, effective and long-lasting. Buy your three bikinis and get one free so you can enjoy the latest in high- and low-cut swimwear and lingerie.

This promotion is good through May 31st so get your wax on!

A few helpful tips to prepare you for your appointment:

  1. To help reduce the pain (especially for first-timers), taking some ibuprofen or aspirin an hour prior to the appointment is recommended. Although waxing is somewhat painful, the more experienced the person doing the treatment, the less likely it will be so uncomfortable.
  2. Try to avoid swimming or sunning 24 hours leading up to the wax as well as the 24 hours following your appointment. It is normal for the skin to have redness or bumps for a short amount of time; ice may help this irritation.
  3. The type of underwear worn is entirely left up to the person getting the waxing done; however, it may be easier to wear a thong since there is less material to interfere with the treatment. Also, it is recommended to wear older underwear and clothing, or something that may be easier to wash due to residue wax that will most likely end up on the underwear and clothes post-visit.
  4. Set aside ample time for your appointment. If you choose to have a Brazilian wax, expect at least a 30-minute timeframe for the entirety of the session. Times may change depending on the type of wax and the person who is doing it.

Lastly, say “Goodbye” to shaving and “Hello” to Elizabeth Grady! Book your appointment today: call 1-800-FACIALS or go to www.elizabethgrady.com for a location nearest you!
