Fact or Fiction?
The Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th.


Independence Day is celebrated two days late. The Second Continental Congress voted for a Declaration of Independence on July 2nd, but the written document wasn't edited and approved until July 4th, and that was the date printers attached to announcements sent out across the land. July 2nd was soon forgotten.

Nail It Down!

Got a chip between manicures and need a quick fix? Polish the affected area. Allow nails to air-dry for two minutes, then dip in a bowl of ice-cold water for three minutes. Voila! Dried and done.



Juicing is an easy way to consume vast amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants, boost your energy, enhance your immune system, and more.



Benefits of Juicing:

  • Juicing offers a more efficient way to absorb immune-boosting nutrients naturally found in fruits and vegetables.
  • Juicing helps in detoxifying the body.
  • Juicing provides you with extra energy. Vegetable and fruit juices have plenty of nutrients, which help in strengthening the body's immunity and giving it extra energy.
  • Juicing may aid in weight loss.

Already noticing blemishes from your recent fun in the sun? Check out these tips to eliminate imperfections and reveal healthy, glowing skin!

  • Exfoliate! This is one of the best ways to remove dry skin cells. But, not just any exfoliating cleanser will do. Many over the counter brands contain ingredients that are too harsh for delicate skin. Your best bet is to visit the spa and let us pick one just for you!
  • Hydrate! One of the easiest ways to keep your skin healthy and looking flawless is from the inside out. Be sure that you are drinking enough water, especially as temperatures rise.
  • Moisturize! Just because it is summer doesn't mean your skin doesn't need added moisture. Pick a lightweight moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30 to apply under your make-up before heading out the door.
  • Facial! If ever there was a time to get a facial, this is it! Visit My Choice Spa & Wellness Lounge and let your esthetician work their magic. While you're at it, listen to their recommendations for at home treatments and masks to keep your skin glowing and healthy.

And, of course, defend yourself against the sun's harmful rays. It's okay to play outdoors, but don't forget your hat, sunglasses, and most importantly... lots of sunblock.

Whatever your skin troubles may be, your My Choice Spa team is always here to help you erase imperfections so you can look and feel FABULOUS!
