Springtime’s warmer weather is a breath of fresh air for all of us skin professionals. You’ve been working hard to manage your clients’ pesky winter skin conditions, and now it’s time to treat yourself! If you’re not convinced that now is the best time to vacation, make sure to take a look at these warm vacation spots in April.

If you’ve ever wanted to visit Florida, now is the time! The weather is amazing (not your typical muggy, humid summer for sure), making visiting the southeastern U.S. one of the best vacations you can take in April! Also, Florida has something for everyone. If you’re a couple looking to get away, check out the relaxing Sanibel Island. And for families, take a trip to Orlando to spend time at Disney World and Universal Studios.

Ahhh, Thailand… we’re dreaming just thinking about it! The temperatures are just starting to get warm, which means that the price point should be perfect to travel here. Of all the warm vacation spots in April to consider, Thailand is probably the most affordable. Get this: hotels can be as cheap as $6 per night! And let’s be honest, Thailand is a great conversation starter with clients during professional treatments.

National Parks
If you’re looking to stay in the continental U.S., there’s no better trip than to any of the National Parks. From the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to Yosemite, you’ll be paying a fraction of what those summer vacationers will fork over. Plus, you can avoid the heavy crowds by visiting in the spring, and you’ll get to see all the benefits winter brings to the parks...think breathtaking waterfalls, spring wildflowers and more!

Cancun, Mexico
There’s one reason that Cancun made our list of best vacations in April: spring break just ended. That’s right, prices just exploded through the roof to accommodate the thousands of spring breakers that visit Cancun. The cost of hotels and flights should be trending down now, so it’s the right time to catch some sun and sandy beaches. Plus, Cancun is known to be humid in the late summer months. If you visit soon, temperatures should hover in the 80’s.

When you visit warm vacation spots in April, remember that tropical locations most likely have deeper UV penetration than your hometown. It’s important to practice what you preach, and wear proper sun protection just like you suggest to clients.
