Get Ready for Summer with this Season's Hottest Beauty Tips

After the long, dreary British winter, we are all feeling a bit gloomy. Summer is on its way and this is the perfect time of year to shed your woolly layers, exfoliate your skin and implement a brand new beauty routine to get your skin glowing and your whole body ready for the sun!
Get Glowing
The most important product in any summer beauty arsenal is a good exfoliator. Not only does it slough off dead skin cells, improving the texture of your skin and allowing new skin to shine through, but it also helps prepare the skin for hair removal and the application of fake tan. You don’t have to spend a fortune on exfoliators just look for ones which contain natural products and will be kind to your skin. You could even whip up your own sugar scrub at home – just mix olive oil, sugar and honey, then store in an airtight jar for up to a month. You’ll be glowing in no time.
Depilate to Motivate
Sometimes, it’s hard being a woman; I’m talking about hair removal. You want every inch of your skin to be silky smooth and sun-kissed before you even think about slipping on your new Top shop shorts. Summer is the perfect time to try out a new method of hair removal. Sugaring and waxing are two popular methods that you can have done at your local salon, or even try at home. Both will leave your legs, underarms and bikini area hair-free and super smooth for up to a month! Other options for hair removal include shaving, hair removal creams or even an epilator (best if you’re not too sensitive). Regular exfoliation between hair removal treatments will help prevent ingrown hairs and keep your skin looking its best.
Fake it to make it
There’s no denying we all like a bit of fake tan in the UK, although sadly the British weather isn’t always up to the job! A golden tan gives you:
Beautiful skin
Confidence to wear summer clothes
A smile on your face
Covers imperfections
Who doesn’t love a tan? Fake tan is getting darker by the second, but you don’t have to look like you’ve been tangoed. Opt for quality self-tanner or spray tan products designed for your skin tone – if you’re fair, you don’t want to go more than a shade darker than your normal skin tone. For those afraid of too much colour, tinted moisturisers or special moisturisers containing self-tanner are a great introduction to the world of fake tanning and can leave you with a light golden glow that’s ideal for the summer months.
So order your fake tan in the UK online, slick on some pretty lip-gloss and a bit of mascara and keep your look light and fresh for a gorgeous summer glow. With your silky smooth, perfectly tanned pins and glowing skin, you’ll be ready for the sun in no time!
