5 Life-saving Skincare Tips for These Summer Holidays

Who doesn’t love the summer holidays? I bet you can’t wait to enjoy yourself under the sun, free from all the stress of your daily life on a beautiful island like Aruba. Sounds like a great plan, doesn’t it?

However, every rose has a thorn and, as much as you love to bask under the summer sun, you’ve got to be careful when dealing with it, because it can threaten to ruin the memories of your vacation with terrible consequences for your skin’s health.

Since we know that staying at home is not an option and you really want to get that sexy summer tan, we present you with these 5 tips that you should follow to avoid damaging your skin as much as possible during the holidays.

1. Use non-comedogenic products

During the summer, the high temperatures and moisture can lead to excessive sweating and oils building up on your skin, eventually causing you to break out.

You can do your part to control this situation by avoiding comedogenic products at all costs.

That is, products containing ingredients that may clog your pores, causing blemishes and blackheads. This includes most natural oils, such as coconut, avocado, and almond.

However, it doesn’t mean that these ingredients are bad for our skin. They also have their benefits when used right, especially in products with a combination of the right percentages of comedogenic and non-comedogenic ingredients.

But when it comes to summer… better stay away from them, even if they’re your regular moisturizers. This brings us to our next point.

2. Moisturize constantly

Even if you’re sweating and swimming in the ocean or pools, it doesn’t mean you don’t need the extra moisture from your regular skincare routine.

Salt water can help you open your pores and help your skin retain moisture. It also acts like a natural exfoliant, which is why your skin feels smoother, softer, and brighter after a good dip in the sea.

The downside is that contact with salt water implies constant exposition to the sun, which has the opposite effect on your skin. For this reason, you should use a light, non-comedogenic moisturizing product whenever you’re not in the sea.

You can use gels and lotions with aloe vera, vitamin C, and glycerin for this purpose.

3. Stay hydrated

A big part of maintaining your moisture levels depends on your diet. Drinking water on a regular basis is essential to avoid dehydration, but it’s not the only way to do it.

A good summer diet should include lots of juicy fruits, fresh vegetables, and seafood, which are rich in nutrients and antioxidants that can prevent cellular degeneration and promote skin blood flow.

Some good products to add to your meals are coconut water, pineapple, oranges, fish, and nuts. All the vitamins in them are great for your skin’s health.

4. Wear SPF at ALL times

Whether it’s raining, cloudy, partly cloudy or there’s a fully clear sky in sight, sunscreen is a must. Dermatologists may have different opinions in some cases, but when it comes to protecting your skin from the UV rays of the sun, they will all agree that SPF is the way to go.

You can use a hat to protect your hair and shade part of your body, as well as sunglasses to shield your eyes from the sun and light clothes to cover the rest of your body. Nonetheless, every part of your body that’s exposed must be covered with sunscreen.

If you’re going to swim, you should use an oil-based product, so it doesn’t wash off as fast, and if you were previously wearing an SPF 30 on a daily basis, it would be good to level it up to SPF 50 for extra protection.

5. Get professional skin care

Last but not least, there are professional treatments. There’s only so much you can do with your own beauty creams and skincare routine. No matter how careful you are, your skin might need a glow-up that only a specialist can give you.

With Clinical Massage & Spa Aruba’s skin therapies you can protect yourself with a moisturizing treatment before or during your vacation, as well as recover from sun damage with our rejuvenating facials once you’re back.

Either way, we are here to help you get the most out of your summer holidays.

I. What is a Lymphatic Drainage?

It's essential to have a good understanding of what the lymphatic system is and what it does. It’s a complex network of vessels and tissues that work together to remove waste and toxins from the body, regulate fluid balance, and support the immune system.

But wait, there’s more! It plays a critical role in maintaining the health and functioning of many other systems in the body. The lymphatic vessels are responsible for carrying lymph, a clear fluid that contains white blood cells and other immune system components, throughout the body. The lymph nodes, located at various points along the lymphatic vessels, act as filters, trapping bacteria, viruses, and other harmful substances, and allowing the immune system to destroy them.

If you're considering a lymphatic drainage session, you may wonder what to expect during the massage.

Depending on your specific health concerns, the massage can focus on particular areas of the body where lymphatic congestion is an issue, such as the legs or arms.

Lymphatic drainage is a massage technique that stimulates the lymphatic system to promote the movement of lymph fluid throughout the body. This technique uses gentle, rhythmic strokes to push the lymph toward the lymph nodes, which can be filtered and processed more efficiently.

Looking for a lymphatic drainage experience like no other? Clinical Massage Aruba & Spa offers the best one to meet your health needs.

Hang tight and learn about the benefits of this treatment.

II. Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialized technique that helps stimulate the lymphatic system, a critical component of the immune system that helps the body fight infections and diseases. The massage targets the lymph nodes, vessels, and lymphatic vessels to facilitate the flow of lymphatic fluid through the body, offering several health benefits:

  • Boosts the immune system.
  • Filters out toxins from the body.
  • Enhances the body's ability to fight infections and diseases.
  • Promotes skin cells’ regeneration.
  • Helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
  • Helps alleviate stress and anxiety.

III. What to Expect from a Lymphatic Drainage

During a lymphatic drainage session, a trained therapist uses gentle, rhythmic movements to stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid throughout the body. This can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and boost the immune system. The therapist will focus on specific areas of the body, such as the arms and legs to encourage the movement of lymphatic fluid and facilitate the removal of toxins.

Curious about what will happen next? You will feel relaxed after 60 minutes as the parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated during the session. This massage can also help balance fluids and remove toxins from the body, so it’s normal to feel an increased need to urinate. With the powerful detoxification effect also comes increased energy and mental clarity.

Whether you want to improve your physical health or simply relax and unwind, this technique is worth considering.

IV. The New You After a Lymphatic Drainage

Have you ever felt like you're carrying a heavy burden around you, both physically and emotionally? No worries! A Lymphatic Drainage can help you feel renewed and energetic.

This treatment is like a soothing melody for your body. It works by tapping into your lymphatic system, which is like a conductor for all the waste and toxins in your body.

With the help of a skilled practitioner, you will experience a healing bliss as they gently massage and stimulate your lymphatic system. As the toxins and waste are removed, you may feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off your shoulders. You'll feel lighter, freer, and more vibrant.

As your body becomes more balanced and aligned, so will your emotions. You may find your mind is clearer, your focus sharper, and your mood uplifted. It's like a burst of energy and positivity has been unlocked within you.

Lymphatic drainage has powerful benefits for your health and well-being but, depending on the person, it can also cause a few negative symptoms.

Some of the possible side effects include:

  • Discomfort during the treatment.
  • Mild soreness in the treated area. This is a common response from massage and should disappear within hours.
  • Possibility of headaches, fatigue, and nausea.


These symptoms are typically mild and short-lived, but if they persist or worsen, you should consult with your Clinical Massage Aruba & Spa’s therapist.
The good news is that you can minimize the negative effects of lymphatic drainage by drinking enough water before and after the procedure to help your body detoxify and reduce the appearance of unpleasant side effects.
And if you still wonder if lymphatic drainage meets your health needs, we answer some frequently asked questions about it.


1. What should I Wear to a Lymphatic Drainage Session?
