"IT'S NOT SELFISH TO LOVE YOURSELF, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND TO MAKE YOUR HAPPINESS A PRIORITY. IT'S NECESSARY". - MANDY HALE
Somehow the Summer heat always sneaks up on us and we are needing to bare our skin to the elements to keep cool all too quickly. Some of us may not be ready to bare all as our skin isn't quite prepped for Summer yet.. I have put together some of my favorite quick tips that will help you on your way to feeling Summer skin ready!
MY TOP 4 SUMMER SKIN TIPS
My favorite way to exfoliate is with Frank Bod.. you have no doubt heard about it or you may have even used it but if you haven't yet than I suggest you get your hands on some ASAP it will leave your skin super soft and it smells like coffeeeee!
I personally love to use a gradual tanning moisturiser to keep my skin hydrated as I love that with a hint of colour it also adds a healthy glow to my skin. Pure Tan have a really delicious smelling one I am a little obsessed with and use every day!
The SPF numbers on your sunscreen do not necessarily mean they are more effective. Did you know that an SPF 50 protects only 2-4% more than an SPF 30? I say use a minimum of SPF 30 if you know you are going to be out in the sunshine for quite some time and always re-apply. Plus I find applying a foundation or tinted moisturiser with SPF to your face shouldn't feel as oily as applying a general sunscreen.
Fun fact our body is composed of about 60% water.. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of our bodies temperature. When I drink my daily intake of water I notice a major difference in the texture of my skin and general well being when I try my best to drink plenty of water each day and coconut water because it's delicious and nutritious (Currently loving Raw C Coconut water).
