Fabulous For The Beach

If you re getting ready for your sun holiday and want to look great on the beach here are a few things that will help you look great.

A full body exfoliation will remove all dry skin to give your skin a polished look. A weekly scrub in the shower is very invigorating and helps the skin to absorb your body moisturiser.

If you want to use fake tan make sure you exfoliate weekly to remove any excess build up, concentrating on your knees, heels and elbows where the skin is driest and the tan will appear darker.

Use a sun cream with a minimum SPF 15 and monitor the amount of time you re in the sun. Try to avoid the sun between 12pm and 3pm which is the hottest part of the day and when you re more likely to burn. If you do burn easily then cover up during the hottest part of the day and wear a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30.

Get into a routine of drinking at least 2 litres of water daily, this will keep your skin fresh and hydrated whilst out in the sunshine.

Have a detox weekend before you go, avoid alcohol, tobacco and caffeine, eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and grilled fish or chicken and drink lots of water to cleanse your body.

Have a manicure and pedicure just before you go, this will give the finishing touch to a great bikini body.

On the beach less make up is needed so invest in a tinted moisturiser to suit your skin tone, look for one with an SPF 15. Alternatively for the first few days on the beach a bronzer can be used on the face to give you a tanned look.

An eyelash tint will give the lashes colour and saves time having to apply mascara before hitting the beach.

As your tan develops, ensure you moisturise your face and body daily to rehydrate the skin

To improve the appearance of dimpling on thighs, dry body brush daily from knee to hip following each brush stroke with a stroke of the other hand, working upwards towards the heart stimulates the circulation and helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Wear sunglasses to protect the delicate skin around your eyes and the eyes themselves, look for sunglasses that have a UV400 protection to deflect harmful rays from the eye area.

Wear a hat when lying in direct sun or walking on the beach to protect the face from UV rays and prevent sun damage and premature ageing.

Happy Holiday
