Taking a Break in Your Own City

Whether packing for a long journey or deciding to stay close to home, a summer vacation is a great opportunity to recharge your batteries. For many of us, summer means spending time with family and friends, listening to the sound of the surf, and breathing in the great outdoors. It can also be a time to explore and discover new places.

The Forgotten City Break

Tourists from around the world flock to New York City, but if you’re a local, your daily routine may keep you from enjoying what is constantly on offer. Take time out of the grind to see something you have that you keep putting on the bottom of the list. Vacation time in your urban backyard can breathe fresh life into your day-to-day.

Skin Tip: The New York heat and humidity can contribute to breakouts and problem skin. A spa treatment can be a great way to cleanse the grime, replenish the skin, and treat yourself to some seasonal luxury. Schedule a deep moisturizing facial or make an appointment to zap that unwanted body hair.

Great Escapes in New York and New Jersey

Going for a hike upstate? Relaxing on the beach in Cape May? Enjoying sculptures in the open air at Storm King Art Center? Short, local excursions can be a great way to extend your summer R&R. A series of weekend getaways can add up, packing some more energy into your reserves.

Skin Tip: Every dermatologist will tell you: applying sunscreen should be a daily habit, especially so when your skin is exposed to the sun. While many of us routinely put SPF-enhanced creams on our faces, we often neglect other areas of our bodies. The neck, arms, hands are just as vulnerable to sun damage and skin cancer. In the summer, when you show a more skin, remember to increase your protection against harmful UV rays.
