Your Ultimate Guide To Summer Ready Skin

Summer is almost here, and that means we have to get our bodies and skin in particular ready for lots of fun in the sun. Although most of us are huge sun worshipers, the damaging sun rays can ruin your killer bod, making you look way older than the 21 years you pretend to be! Caring for your skin properly before and after your day in the sun is the best way to reap the benefits of sun bathing while protecting yourself from harm. Make sure you’re up on the best beauty and skincare tips this season. Take a look at my top skin care tips to help prime your skin for summertime fun after a harsh winter chill. Here is your ultimate guide to summer ready skin!

Exfoliate away dullness

Get your skin glowing way before you hit the beach or pool deck. Regular exfoliation is essential for revealing your best skin during any season, but for summer, it’s even more important. Exfoliating primes your skin and helps it to soak up moisturising suncreams. Try Jo Malone Geranium & Walnut Body Scrub for a quick skin boost with a ultra heavenly scent.

 

Go bare without embarrassment

When summer arrives, one of the biggest skincare concerns of women everywhere, is making sure their bikini line is in check. However, that task can lead to redness and irritation. ESPA Purifying Tea Tree Gel is great for soothing away irritation and clearing up blemishes. And if you want to slow down hair growth for a totally smoother you, try Completely Smooth for Body with a glorious magnolia, jasmine, and vanilla scent. Tell those razor bumps where to go!

Protect your skin from the inside out

So you already know that going out in the sun without proper suncream is a major no-no. But did you know that what you eat can also help protect your skin? Apparently eating cooked tomatoes each day that you’re in the sun gives you 100% natural sun protection because of the lycopene those little juicy red things contain. Obvs not meant to totally replace suncream, but it will definitely add to your protection factor. If you’re not in to salads you could try a tomato juice instead!

Keep skin free and clear

Nothing is less attractive than going out in summer clothes only to have breakouts on your face, chest, or back. Treating it with products that contain salicylic acid helps blemish-prone skin and will give you summer  beauty glow in no time. Sunday Riley’s Ceramic Slip Cleanser is a great way to treat spot prone areas with gorgeous results.

Take care of your tootsies

Feet that have been crammed into winter boots for months on end are in desperate need of pampering. If you can’t make it to the salon for a proper pedicure, give yourself a foolproof DIY pedi!

File your feet and apply a rich cream. Wrap feet in plastic wrapping, followed by socks and sleep on it. Your feet will feel so much fresher and softer in the morning. Do this daily to achieve your best results. L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream is a splendid choice. Don’t forget to add a summery nail polish to give your feet that ultra spa finish. My favourite colours right now are Leighton Denny’s Super Model and Butter London’s Pink Ribbon.

Now you can pack your beach bag with confidence, knowing your skin is ready to take the heat. Don’t forget to moisturise afterward to keep skin hydrated, glowing, and fresh! Don’t forget to oil you hair everyday, the sun can destroy a girl’s well maintained mane!

  • That shea butter foot cream sounds amazing. I constantly have dry feet, living in Texas, and am always looking for a lotion that will keep them from feeling constantly wrinkled and abused.

    If I don’t exfoliate, my skin is the worst! I have to do it every day and then moisturizer right after to have summer ready skin.

    I really need to exfoliate my skin. I usually make my own sugar scrub with coconut oil. It helps moisturize my skin and keeps it soft.
