Dear Greg~

“Ask Greg!”

Maintenance Corner

Each issue our Maintenance Director,

Greg Hazard will off er a unique and useful household tip. Have a question?

All you have to do is Ask Greg at askgreg@raviniaclub.com!

I know it’s summer time because these pesky ants won’t

stay out of my kitchen! I have searched and searched and

there is always a long line of them that seem to come

from nowhere. I know they are coming for something

but I can’t fi gure out what it is so I can hide it and keep

it for myself! I hate to be a bother but can you help?


Mr. Hopper

Mr. Hopper~

Ants can defi nitely be annoying in the kitchen and fi nding

the source is hardest part. I can tell you that they usually

go straight for fruit on the counter or containers with sugar

that you might use for your coff ee. During these months

those ants are gathering food for the winter, so keep as

much of it off the counter as you can or sealed in airtight

containers. Try to wipe down jars and bottles after each use

as well. Th is should help keep those ants away! And don’t

worry, I am always happy to answer questions. It’s my lot in

life—it’s not a lot, but it’s my life!

Summer Skin Care with Th e Ravinia

Spa: It’s summertime in Atlanta, and

the weather is HOT!

While we certainly can’t off er you any new advice on how

to beat the heat, at least we at Th e Ravinia Spa do know

a thing or two about how to best care for your skin this

season so you can show off your summer skin in shorts,

tees, sundresses and bathing suit all summer long. (Oh, and

if you do by chance over-indulge under the sun a bit one

day this summer? We can take care of that, too.)

Tips for healthy summer skin:

Pinnacle Chiropractic and Th e Ravinia Spa

Dedicated to your wellness experience

Use sunscreen ALL OVER your body, even on overcast

days. Dangerous UV rays can shine through lightcolored

clothing. Don’t forget to protect your face,

as well.

Apply liberally – approximately one ounce per whole

body application. (Th at’s the equivalent of a shot glass,

if this helps!)

Apply sunscreen 30 minutes to one hour prior to

outdoor activities, and re-apply every two hours during


Remember that even “water-proof” sunscreen will still

breakdown and need re-application, especially after

heavy sweating or water activities.

Use sunscreen with at least an SPF (sun protection

factor) of 30, though dermatologists agree that

sunscreens marketed with an SPF of 70 or higher are

not usually worth the added cost (there is a limit to

sunscreen protection, after all).

When possible, avoid direct sun exposure during the

most dangerous times of day for UV rays, which are

the hours between 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. Also, bear

in mind that UV rays refl ect and intensify off of sand,

water and even the asphalt you walk on.

Fair-skinned people and those with freckles have less

melanin (the skin’s natural chemical agent and fi rst line

of defense for UV ray absorption), so they should use

extra vigilance with their skin protection all year long.

Tips for luscious summer skin:

Exfoliate dead skin to invigorate skin cell production and

the renewal of dewy skin layers beneath. Don’t neglect

your back, which perhaps you can’t see, but others

certainly can. Can’t reach or don’t know which products

to use? Schedule an appointment with one of our highly

trained estheticians and enjoy a bit of “me” time. May

we suggest a glycolic facial to reveal the healthier skin

underneath the fi ne lines, dry patches and uneven skin

tones left from past sun exposure? If that’s too strong for

your tastes, how about our new botanical facial, which

uses nature’s own bounty as its exfoliating agent? For your

whole-body needs, we off er back facials and diff erent

types of all-over mud wraps. All are available for both

men and women.

Hate those bumps and prickly stubble left behind from

shaving? Once your skin has been freshly exfoliated and

polished, add a professional waxing to control your hair

removal needs. Your entire body can be silky smooth and

stubble-free all season long, and you won’t have to worry

about shaving this summer.

Hydrate your skin with our exclusive lines of skincare

lotions and sunscreens, which are available in limited

supplies locally, and only from dermatologists and

medical spas. Our staff will consult with you to meet your

individual needs. Whether your preference is the nonirritating,

revolutionary transparent zinc oxide (which

protects against both UVA and UVB rays) developed by

the elite line SkinCeuticals, Yon-Ka’s “After Sun Lotion

Tan Prolonger”, or the unmatched rehydrating and

calming vitamins found in Danish skincare line Beaute

Pacifi que (developed especially to reverse sun damage and

overindulgence, for those of us who may have realized the

error of our sun-worshipping ways a little “later” in life),

we’ve got you covered. We work closely and personally

with a representative from each company to off er an

unparalleled selection of skincare in the Atlanta area

that we truly believe in and actually use ourselves (both

personally and professionally in our spa).

To schedule an appointment with one of our expert

estheticians or massage therapists, please call the Spa at

770-392-7337. For more information, please visit
