Summer is so close so I thought it was about time we had the “How to be ready for that spontaneous, quick the suns out, get a dress on and get outside” chat. I had an early vacay this year (sorry, did i already mention that?) and as my tan has started to fade i’ve been reluctant to let go sooo, here’s my top tips for perfect, summer skin…
1.SCRUB, SCRUB, SCRUB
First things first, exfoliate all over to make sure you have super fresh skin!! My fave body body scrubs are…
I love this natural coffee scrub in “coconut affair” it goes on really nice and leaves skin with a gorgeous glow. It’s also great for targeting blemishes, acne, stretch marks and cellulite which is always a bonus!! Join the #BABESTHATSCRUB gang!
I know I come back to TROPICS every time but you can’t fault the products or the brand ethics. And it all smells SO good!!! This body polishing scrub makes your skin feel AMAZING, like seriously amazing. It leaves an oily finish on skin which is great if you’re not tanning after but if you are just make sure you wash it off with soap after!
MY DO IT YOURSELF COFFEE BODY SCRUB RECIPE IS COMING SOON SO LOOK OUT FOR ANOTHER TO ADD TO THE LIST!!
2. TAN, BABY, TAN
OK so you have super soft skin, now to get that natural looking, harm-free, bronzed goddess glow…
This is my absolute FAVOURITE summer product and I actually use it all year round, when I feel like I need a little pick me up I always turn to this! It builds up gradually over a couple of days so you can choose how far you wanna go on the tan game! And the best thing about it? It doesn’t smell like sweaty biscuits, it honestly smells like coconuts on the beach!!
OK, they say it better than me so i’m just going to copy over what they say…”A must-have for blemish-free, sun-kissed legs, combining the repairing benefits of coffee butter and arnica extract, and the skin nutrition and protection of vitamins e and c, this leg perfecting serum helps heal damaged skin while reducing the appearance of bruises and scars. With the colour enhancing effects of natural caramel and gold mica particles to boost skin luminosity, get ready for utterly flawless legs!” This is a great product to have on standby for instantly gorgeous summer skin, perfect for those mornings you wake up and think “Damn, I wish i’d tanned last night”. I use this all over too, not just for legs!
3. GET THE FACE ON
This BB cream is perfect for summer days as it has that much needed SPF 35, we really should wear SPF EVERY DAY, even when its snowing!! This offers just the right amount of coverage without looking like you’ve caked on the foundation.
This is a great all round bronzer as it’s also perfect if you fancy getting’ your contour ONNNN! The highlighter is great for summer cheek bones, I also use it at the inner corner of my eyes to give a little extra POP!
So there you have it, my step by step product guide to the perfect summer glow!!
Hope you liked it! Let me know if you have any comments on any of the products I featured, or if you have any tips for me from your summer routine! I’m always down for a tip-off!!
Peace, Love & SUMMER PINS!
