Vitamin C: Did You Know…

Girl Get Oxygen Facial (2)

Are you getting enough Vitamin C? Though largely toted as an immunity booster in orange juice, it turns out that it actually can have a huge impact on the health of your skin! According to Racheal Ellery, our Spa Director, routinely using a Vitamin C serum can help renew your skin to its youthful glow. Here’s how it works:

Look your Age
Vitamin C produces collagen, a protein that gives your skin its elasticity. As you age, and that elasticity breaks down, wrinkles form. Stabilizing your skin’s levels of vitamin C can increase collagen production, which can help to fight wrinkles and increase elasticity.

Damage Control
Because Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant, it can help reduce the number of sunburned cells, reversing age-related skin spots. It can even fade old scars or marks on your skin with regular application.

Get the most of your vitamins with our Vitamin C Oxygen Facial! Along with exfoliating and moisturizing, this deep penetrating treatment will increase your Vitamin C absorption, speeding up results and improving your skin. Check out our spa package, including this treatment here:

Golf Tip: Getting Accurate Yardage


Do you struggle with club selection? Could it be that your yardage is off? According to Carl Penfold, our Head Golf Professional, “Yardage is key in choosing the right club. Our 17th hole, for example, is 176 yards, which would normally be a 7 iron for me. But the actual yardage (based on slope) is 146 yards, which would normally be a 9 iron for me. If I were to hit the 7 iron, it would go over the green, likely resulting in a bogey or worse.”

So how can you get a more accurate yardage and be able to choose your best club? Well, for amateur golfers, Carl recommends investing in an electronic or laser range finder that includes slope. This is likely the most reliable and accurate way to gauge the distance and choose the appropriate club. An important note, though, is that as accurate as these range finders are for distance and slope, they don’t account for wind! Trial and error is the best way to get great at refining your technique, gaining confidence and lowering your scores…

Sunscreen: Chemical or Physical?

Group Of Friends Having Fun Together Outdoors

In Canada, we wait all year for the summer heat; for pools, gardens and outside fun! Thankfully, most of us have embraced the need to protect ourselves from the sun and skin cancer. Did you know there are 2 types of sunscreen, physical and chemical? Here is some information from our spa and other sources (listed below) that might help you make the choice that’s right for you:

Physical sunscreen: what is it?
- It blocks the sun’s rays, reflecting UV radiation back into the atmosphere using ingredients such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
- The ingredients scatter both UVA and UVB rays, providing your skin with full protection from sun damage.
- This type of sunscreen provides immediate protection as soon as it’s applied.

Chemical sunscreen: what is it?
- It forms a thin film on the skin that reduces ultraviolet radiation (UVR) penetration to the skin.
- Includes chemical ingredients like avobenzone and benzophenone, which absorb UV rays.
- You will need to wait 20 minutes after applying chemical sunscreen before its protection kicks in.
- There is a concern among some that this type of sunscreen may cause free radicals, causing irritation, and in some cases damage, to the skin.

No matter which sunscreen you choose, remember to re-apply regularly to keep your protection consistent throughout the day.
