Six Tips For Getting Your Skin Summer Ready

With these six tips for getting your sun summer ready you will be happy to wear summer clothes and make the most of the sunshine.

It looks like Spring is finally here. The last few days have been lovely and sunny. Spring flowers are appearing in gardens and the birds are starting to think about building nests. It is lovely to see the sun again. Once the sun starts coming out we start to think about bringing out our summer clothes. Jumpers and boots which were perfect for the winter are too heavy for the sunshine. Lighter clothing means the chance to show off our skin again. Sadly over the winter the skin often gets neglected and it needs a little pampering to get it looking good again. I have put together some tips for getting your skin summer ready. If you start now your skin will be looking good in time for the summer.

Six Tips for getting your skin summer ready.

Follow these six tips for getting your skin summer ready and you will be ready to bare in the summer.

Exfoliate

Wearing layers of clothing over the winter can cause dead skin cells to build up, leaving our skin looking dull and lifeless. Exfoliating regularly will remove the dead skin cells making your skin look fresher and younger. Choosing the right exfoliating scrub is half the battle. I like to use one with natural ingredients like this Crazy Angel Halo Polish Scrub (RRP £10.10). It is infused with Sesame and Bearberry which moisturise your skin.  Soft white pearl beads will  gently remove dead skin cells. It works really well on my skin making it feel softer and smoother giving it the perfect boost for the summer.

Invest in an exfoliating scrub that uses natural ingredients, like sugar and salt (not beads) and apply all over your face and body while you’re in the shower. Keep in mind that the skin on your face, neck and chest is thinner than the rest of the skin on your body, so use something that’s more gentle in these areas. Pay special attention to dry spots like your elbows and feet. A body brush can really help get these areas looking soft and smooth.

Moisturise

The summer sun acts to dry out skin. Prevent this happening by making sure you moisturise in the morning and evening. This will make your skin look fresher and make your tan last longer. It will also make your skin feel softer. Why not use a moisturiser than also contains self tan to get that golden sunkissed glow without the sun. It will build your tan up gradually without adding extra time to your beauty regime. I have been trying out Crazy Angel Golden Tease Gradual Tan (RRP £11.00).  The mild tanning agents have given my skin a lovely streak free golden glow.   It works really well as a moisturiser as it is enriched with Bearberry, Shea Butter and Vitamin E.  The smell is nice as well, unlike some fake tans.

Hydrate

Water is important to your body. Over half your body is made up of water and without it your body can’t function correctly. Dehydration can leave you feeling tired and bring on headaches. Lack of water can also leave your skin feeling dry and tight. In the summer your body is losing water as sweat due to the warmer conditions. This needs replacing to keep you looking and feeling your best. Make sure you drink at least eight glasses of water a day or more if you can manage it. Your skin will thank you for it.

Protect

The ultraviolet rays from the sun can have a harmful effect on the skin. As well as causing sunburn if you stay out too long they also have an ageing effect on the skin. Make sure that you apply sunscreen before you go outside. Don’t forget the ultraviolet rays are still present, even on cloudy days. It is good practice to always apply sunscreen and reapply every two hours if you are outside for a long time.

Apply a tan

Nothing makes you feel like Summer has come more than a tanned skin. Getting a tan naturally can take a while and is not good for your skin. If you don’t have the patience to use a gradual tan why not fake it? Crazy Angel Bronze Instant Airbrush Self Tan (RRP £15.30) is a great way to get an instant bronze glow that develops after two hours into a natural looking tan. It is easy to spray on with the 360° spray allowing you to apply it to difficult to reach areas. As well as tanning agents it contains  Aloe Vera and Vitamin E  to moisturise your skin and produce long lasing results.

Don’t forget your feet

Feet are on show over the summer when you wear strappy sandals. Often the skin on the feet suffers from being in boots all winter. The result is hard skin patches that look unsightly. Invest in a pedicure or buy a tool to help you remove hard skin from your feet. The Micro Pedi  is one tool that does a good job. Don’t forget to moisturise your feet and invest in a manicure. Coloured nails look really nice with sandals.

If you start practising these six tips for getting your skin summer ready you should have skin to show off once summer comes. Do you have any other tips to add? Let me know below.

    Summer is right around the corner and it’s never to early to start thinking about how to best care for your skin during the year’s hottest months. Keeping your skin healthy, hydrated and protected is key to having beautiful skin that’s worthy of being flaunted all season long. Summer is the time when you want to show off a little more skin and look as radiant as ever. By maintaining yourself hydrated, and ensuring that your skin is protected from the sun’s damaging rays, and the drying effects of wind and chlorine you’ll look healthy, youthful and ready to take on the season with your best face forward.
