Summers in Michigan are special: Whether you grew up in the area or were brought here by circumstance there’s no denying the beauty and magic of the season. Surrounded by lakes, soaking up the sun and spending time outdoors is a no-brainer — because once fall hits, we know snow isn’t far behind.
So enjoy the summer sun, but be safe doing it. To celebrate the season The Glō team is sharing our fave summer memories and the products and procedures that helped us along the way.
Meko: “My favorite summer memory is the feeling of having the freedom of the day to do whatever I wanted, followed by meeting friends for a long beach day, filled with games, reading, and swimming!”
Grace: “My favorite summer memory is visiting my grandpa in Ludington with my mom and sister every year, going to the beach daily, getting ice cream every night, and chatting late into the night around the fire.”
Ana: “Playing with my kids at the beach”
A day at the beach is best served with a healthy slathering of SkinMedica Total Defense and Repair SPF 34.
Unprotected sun exposure can cause wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots, and dull, congested skin. SPF, or the Sun Protection Factor measures how well a sunscreen protects you from UVB rays.
- SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB rays
- SPF 30 blocks 97% of UVB rays
- SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays
Choosing SPF over 30 is a must if you plan on being in the sunshine for a prolonged period of time.
Skin damage can happen quickly: Protect your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays with a reliable sunscreen that you’ll want to reach for. With a hint of color to the formula and damage-repairing properties, this is one of our favorite products to stock up on.
Not everyone is a natural-born beach bum, for some of our staff, hiking and camping take precedence.
Kresta: “Michigan summers are the absolute best! My favorite was the 2019 family trip I took to Copper Harbor. We stayed a week in our camper and visited the Manganese & Jacobs Falls. Mornings were spent taking turns hiking into town to grab freshly brewed coffee and thimbleberry donuts. And an evening was spent watching the sunset from Brockway Mountain. Take me back.”
For those exploring the great outdoors, it can mean getting in extra steps and pushing your athletic ability to the max. Double your efforts with a EMSCULPT NEO session and build muscle ahead of your woodsy vacation so you can take on any trail, no problem. And even if your idea of hiking is more of a brisk walk, EMSCULPT NEO can help give you a body that looks good doing it.
EMSCULPT NEO is a non-surgical, non-invasive way to boost muscle mass that works by causing the muscles to contract quickly in ways you won’t hit on the trails.
Last but certainly not least, are the ladies who lake.
Hailey: “My favorite summer memories come from camping trips in northern Michigan with family and friends.”
Jaylynn: “Favorite summer memory is going to Houghton Lake every weekend and spending time with my family!”
Salena: “Favorite summer memory is late summer nights on the lake, swimming in the dark when the water was warmer than the air, and fireworks over the boats.”
KP: “My favorite summer memory is going to Mackinac Island every summer. My dad’s company had a week-long seminar at the Grand Hotel, and we would get to tag along for it!”
Spending time on the water requires baring it all… get lake-ready with laser hair removal. Laser hair removal works by sending a laser through the pigment in the hair. The light from the hair converts to heat and permanently damages the hair follicle making it difficult for further growth.
Stubble can be uncomfortable and unsightly, and waxing can be painful and expensive. Laser hair removal is a great alternative to help cut time, and costs, and boost your confidence, so you can spend more time in the water and less time in your head. No matter the area, if there’s hair, we can laser it away.
