Always be Summer ready!
Why should your body only be pampered and beautiful in the summer?
A good all year round beauty regime, not only makes you feel and look fabulous but allows your body to be healthy and glow all year!
Using an exfoliant and removing dead skin, not only gives you smoother healthier looking skin that glows, it also prepares your skin for a better longer lasting tan no the summer while keeping your skin soft in the winter and promoting good blood circulation. This in turn prevents uneven skin tone.
Always apply a good moisturiser after exfoliating, some exfoliants contain oils. Making sure you keep your skin moisturised after exfoliating is important to protect the fresh new skin that you have revealed and to lock in moisture.
Keeping hydrated is another way to keep your skin young, healthy and glowing. When our body is dehydrated, our skin, hair and nails show it too. Drink at least 2 litters of water throughout the day and more on warm months and during exercise as your body excretes moisture in sweat.
There are a number of body moisturisers on the market. These consist of different consistencies to accommodate different skin types and needs. Lotions tend to be a more watery consistency and absorb thicker, usually for less absorption. Creams tend to be of a thicker constancy for a light to medium absorption and butters are thick for deeper moisture.
Be careful when choosing a moisturiser, some contain parabens making the product sit on the skin rather than absorb.
When moisturising, you should use a specified cream for that body area i.e; Hand creams. face creams, body creams, foot creams... Each product has been specially formulated for that particular area.
Lip balm is ideal for those dry chapped lips. It allows the lips to adsorb moisture and creates a protective barrier. Apply to lips daily either in the morning or evening as part of your facial routine. This can be reapplied if needed during the day over the top of a lipstick.
Why not compliment your lip balm with a lip scrub, these two are the perfect duo. Scrub away any dead skin leaving your lips soft and ready for balm. The scrubbing and rubbing motion is proven to plumpen lips too. 💋
