Fact or Fiction?
People with a well-balanced diet don't need vitamin supplements.
Recent studies suggest that many people fall below the estimated average requirement for certain nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, D, and E, and magnesium and calcium, even with a well-balanced diet, so it's a good idea to include a multivitamin in your daily regimen.

Take advantage of the numerous benefits of coconut oil.

After shampooing, apply a generous amount of coconut oil to wet strands and twist hair into a bun. Let it sit for at least 5 minutes. Rinse and fall in love with the added moisture and shine!



Coconut Water

Coconut water is packed with nutrients that produce numerous health benefits. This tasty alternative to water moisturizes the skin, reduces blood pressure, facilitates digestion, and even assists in weight loss efforts. Drink to your health!



Express Workouts

Express workouts are the answer for anyone with a busy lifestyle who wants to stay in shape! Instead of spending hours at the gym each day, opt for a vigorous 20-minute workout that can easily fit into your schedule.


Q: I have dry skin and constantly have to apply moisturizer. Even with the arrival of warmer weather, I am still battling dry, dull, flaky skin. What can I do?

A: Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen!!! Look for a higher number of SPF for better coverage and protection. Apply liberally at minimum every two hours.

Guys' Night Out: After a day of celebrating Dad with the family, why not get all the important men in his life together for a fun night out? Plan dinner at his favorite sports grill so everyone can enjoy the game. This is sure to be an exciting night for all!

A Day at the Spa: Even Dad likes to unwind and relax. Give him the gift of relaxation by choosing a package created just for him or give him a spa gift card to create his own experience.

A De-Stress Kit: Because we all deserve some down time to relax and de-stress, a gift set from Spa Essence Retreat is a great gift for the dapper dad. Designed to achieve complete relaxation, the Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Line also smells great! Stop by Spa Essence Retreat so we can help you put together a special treat for Dad.

Family Time: We know Dad probably does a lot of grilling out this time of year, but allow him to sit back and relax while the rest of the family cooks for him. Pick his favorite recipe and attempt to make it as delicious as he does. He will appreciate the effort, as well as a fun, relaxing afternoon with family.

Happy Father's Day. Enjoy the day with those you love most!
