Seven Top Tips for Summer Ready Skin

summer skin

When the temperature rises, we all want to show a bit more skin.

Even if you look forward to banishing the knitwear in favour of tank tops and sun dresses, we can all admit to feeling a bit of sun-induced panic – if we bare all, is our skin summer-ready?

 Well, this year you have nothing to worry about, simply follow our seven top tips and enjoy dazzling, sun-kissed skin all summer long.

 

 

 

1) Exfoliate

To make your skin look brighter, you need to exfoliate. Doing so removes the dead skin that, if left untreated, can dull your complexion.

If you invest in an exfoliating scrub that uses natural ingredients, you’ll be giving your skin a fresh look and feel, whilst avoiding harmful parabens too.

Tip - Apply the exfoliating scrub all over the face and body using circular motions. Doing so at least twice a week throughout the summer will keep skin in tip-top condition and will also prevent sun screen oil from clogging your pores too.

 

2) Moisturise

An added bonus to a good exfoliation routine is that your skin is more receptive to a moisturiser. This is a good thing in the summer as your skin will require all the hydration it can get to help in its battle against the sun.

By quenching your skin’s thirst with moisturisers, especially after exfoliation, you’ll give your skin a natural softness.

What’s more, moisturising your skin will have the added bonus of locking in your tan for longer. Result.

 

3) Shave and Shower, correctly

Nobody likes razor-burn, so combat it by changing your blades regularly. It’s also a good idea to keep your shaves short. See, long, hot shaves dry out the skin – instead, use lukewarm water and finish with a cool, refreshing skin to close the pores.

 

4) Always protect from the sun

We like to tan but only a fool doesn’t take precautions to guard against the sun. After all, nobody finds sunburnt skin sexy, so make sure you slap on the sun-cream and cover up well.

Sometimes though, with all the prep in the world we can still get a little sunburnt. If so, don’t suffer – apply cooling gels that will soothe red and inflamed skin. Products that utilise the natural healing powers of aloe vera tend to work fastest.

 

5) Facials

Believe us, those women that always seem to enjoy perfect complexions are rarely just blessed with great skin. Having seemingly flawless skin requires effort on your behalf.

Booking facials provides the skin with a regular deep cleanse that unclogs the pores and banishes blemishes.

The problem is, regular trips to the clinic are costly, in terms of both time and money.

So, why not become your own facialist?

Using a facial cleansing product as part of your beauty routine not only rejuvenates skin but is also a must if you plan on fake tanning.

 

6) Pedicure

They often get forgotten, but it’s important to keep your toes in tip top shape.

Let’s face it, you’ll more than likely have stuffed your poor feet into boots all winter so it’s only natural from them to need a bit of TLC before they’re summer-sandal safe.

Jumpstart your program with a trip to the salon but then keep up your good work with a home pedicure regime.

Tip - a great DIY way to treat feet is to file the rough skin, then lather with a body lotion, before placing your feet in cotton socks overnight.

A sure-fire way to have tip, top feet this summer.

 

7) Eat and drink well

The appearance of our skin is very often a reflection of the way you treat your body. Keeping up a good diet will result in noticeably healthier skin.

Aim to drink eight glasses of water each day to maintain your body’s required moisture balance – this will help keep your skin detoxified. It’s also a good idea to load up on luscious fruit and veg that will hydrate and nourish your skin.

 

Skin the shines all summer long!
