The clocks have changed, the days are longer and the weather is improving. The warm summer months are just around the corner and it will soon be time to reveal more of our bodies! Here are my top tips to help you feel more confident this summer and to help your skin feel the best it can.
Replace Waxing with Body Sugaring
Body sugaring is a total natural and effective way to remove unwanted body hair. The sugar paste gently exfoliates only the dead skin cells and sticks to the hair to be removed, so the procedure is less painful compared to waxing. The hairs are removed with the roots, so the results last longer and your hair grows back finer.
Most importantly, there will be no ingrowing hairs as the sugar paste removes the hair in the natural direction of growth so there is no breakage or ingrowth.
The skin becomes smooth and silky as the sugaring works as a natural exfoliator. Please note that your hairs should be approximately 0.5cm long (which is equivalent to 2-3 weeks without shaving). Start to grow your hairs now, ready for Body Sugaring as the weather improves.
Now is a great time to get into a regular skin care regime, to get rid of dead cells. Regular exfoliation will give you smoother, more even, healthier and balanced skin.
If you give your skin a head start before the summer, with a good exfoliation treatment your skin cells will begin to replicate the new healthier cells, therefore giving you a better complexion.
I would recommend an exfoliation treatment every two weeks using a pure natural and organic exfoliator such as Tropic’s body smooth refreshing polish.
Regular facials can eliminate the skin problems that many people get down about such as oily skin, clogged pores, puffiness, ruddiness and itchy skin. Facials will give you a healthier and balanced complexion, helping you to maintain your skin health. Regular facials can also slow the aging process, allowing healthier and more radiant skin and can reduce fine lines, age spots and relieve dehydrated skin. Most skin products can take up to 6-8 weeks to start to treat active skin cells, but by speeding up the renewal process with a facial you can make your skin products work faster and more effectively. I offer a lovely facial to help you kick-start your beauty regime this summer.
Protect your Skin
No matter your age, you need to protect your skin from the sun all year round. Not only can sun exposure lead to skin cancer, it will also cause dryness, sun spots, wrinkles and other visible signs of ageing. Always use a moisturizer, sunscreen and cosmetics that contain SPF 15 or higher, even throughout the spring and especially in the summer. Choose from broad spectrum, water resistant, mineral sunscreen range to keep skin protected from the sun, and prevent premature skin ageing.
