The first few months of the year can make us all want to curl up and hibernate, but spring is upon us, the days are longer and the summer is coming. That New Year’s resolution may have gone out of the window sooner than we may have liked, and that neglected gym membership is looking even more like a good idea for us to feel tip top for the summer. But fear not! This post gives you a few tips to get back to your best self and
Investing in a decent exfoliator is a good idea to wake your skin up, remove dead cells, and reveal new, smooth and baby-soft skin. Bliss has an excellent range of skin firming and cellulite busting products that can really help you get on top of your game.
If, like countless other folk of all ages, you have a little unwanted cellulite, exfoliating as well as a good diet and exercise (this goes without saying!) will smooth your skin out and get the blood flow going for brighter, healthier looking skin on arms, legs, bums and tums.
Nail your Skincare Routine
We’re all bombarded with the daily message ‘cleanse, tone, moisturise’, but everyone is different and we should all appreciate that different products work for different people. The key is, keep a routine that works for you.
If you wear makeup or have oily or combination skin, remove any traces of makeup or product build-up by removing dirt and oil with a decent gentle cleansing product and warm water. Then proceed to exfoliate dead cells gently and without harsh chemicals or dangerous microbeads.
Get Ready for a Healthy Tan
Don’t scrimp on UVA and UVB protection for your skin. For your face, it really is best to fake it with foundation or bronzer if you want to avoid premature aging and sun induced skin damage. Use a moisturiser with a high SPF and 5 star UVA protection in the day to stop those ageing rays, and use serum at night to regenerate your complexion.
Get your Feet Sandal-ready
Arguably the most hardworking and most neglected part of your body, your feel will love your for pampering them before summer and reward you with smooth, soft skin. Give your feet a good soak before using a pumice stone to rub away any hardened skin. Dry them well, and your nails will still be soft enough to pedicure to perfection.
Follow these tips and prepare to emerge phoenix-like out of your warm coats and trainers, and into those short-shorts and sandals and lap up the sunshine.
