Summer Is Here

Summer is here, the season of wearing crop tops and shorts, showing off your beautiful supple skin. but in order to look stunning, you need to take sometime to prep your skin and reverse the signs of neglect on your skin.

Get ready with these tips to pull out in your favourite summer dress in no time flat.

1. Exfoliate your body

Rule Number One. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day. If you don't get rid of them, they'll just make you look dull and dry. No matter how much lotion you use, you're never going to have glowing skin if you don't exfoliate. Grab a body scrub and hit the shower. Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements on your entire body from the shoulders down  and rinse clean. Continue to do this 2-3 times a week for year-round for silky skin.

2. Hydrate your Body with a Summer - Scented Lotion

Find a summery lotion that you won't forget to put on. Look for something light fast absorbing.  Nothing spells summer more than a light refreshing fruity lotion. Make sure you apply right after you dry off from your shower. You need to seal in the moisture your body just soaked in.

3. Peep toe Sandals

It's sandal season ladies. Either go and get a pedicureor give yourself an at-home pedicure. Nothing is worse than seeing dull dry feet inside cute sandals.  Keep a foot scrub and file in your shower and scrub your feet a few times a week. You'll notice a big difference in the softness of your feet.

4. Summer Polish 

Buy a bold new polish for your toes. Toe nails can be painted a much bolder color than you would usually put on your fingernails which screams summer. Polish tends to stay on your toes much longer than your hands because you don't abuse your toe nails like you do your finger nails. Apply a clear base coat , two applications of color and a clear top coat to protect. Go barefoot or put on your flip-flops for at least a couple hours to make sure your polish won't dent.

5. Get New Sunscreen

Sunburns are not pretty nor cool, so is using your old sunscreen. Check for the expiry date. Sunscreens aren't meant to last forever. Be safe and pick up a new one. And USE IT. You should be using a shot glass full for your body, and a full teaspoon just on your face. Reapply every 1-2 hours that you are in the sun to ensure a summer full of safe sun fun.
