Preparing your body for summer

Preparing your body for summer

Treat your feet to some much needed TLC


Many people disregard the importance of foot care, in spite of the endless stress and pressure we put our feet through. Offering the same nail and skin benefits as manicures, pedicures are actually believed by professionals to be even more important. Regular pedicures not only help keep feet looking pretty, they also keep nails trimmed, calluses controlled and skin hydrated. In addition, a foot massage helps to relieve tension and stimulate blood and lymph circulation.

Prepare your skin for summer


Summer is here bringing with it a desire to shed our layers and head out into the sunshine. Now is the time to resume a warmer weather beauty routine to lay the foundation for glowing summer skin.  First things first – a thorough deep cleanse is essential in keeping your skin looking radiant and healthy. This has the added benefit of helping anti-aging products and treatments work as they should.  A professional deep cleansing facial reaches the underlying parts of your skin that your everyday facial wash cannot reach, and it will remove excess oil, toxins and dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking fresh and youthful.

Summer is a time for skin renewal and rejuvenation


Exfoliating your skin doesn’t only do away with dead skin cells to reveal more youthful-looking skin, it can also improve the effectiveness of your regular skincare routine. What’s more, regular exfoliation increases the skin’s radiance and clarity by unclogging pores, evening out skin tone, boosting circulation, increasing cell turnover, and stimulating collagen synthesis.  Whether you have dry, normal, oily or sensitive skin, exfoliation can bring new life to your complexion.

Hydrate your skin from inside and out


It is only natural that as the weather becomes warmer, our bodies need more water, and the same applies to our skin. Many people report that by increasing their water intake they experience fewer breakouts and their skin takes on a more radiant glow.  To sustain your skin’s natural moisture a hydrating facial is loaded with many moisture-retaining benefits. The products that we use for a hydrating facial have properties that bind moisture and lock it inside deeper layers of the skin, preventing moisture loss. As a result skin looks softer and smoother – and the appearance of wrinkles is decreased.

Head out into summer with confidence


When it comes to putting on your favourite summer dress and heading out into the world with confidence, getting a body wax isn’t just about getting rid of unwanted hair, it’s also about creating smooth, beautiful skin.  Light exfoliation before hair removal is essential for waxing to work at its best. This this will gently rid the skin of dead cells and improve the texture of dry skin, preparing it for waxing. Having regular waxing treatments also provides an exfoliating effect that can help to improve your skin texture and softness. The final step to smooth, beautiful skin is to moisturise every day after your wax to keep the skin soft and supple, and help new hairs to grow through normally.

Say goodbye to dry elbows and knees, naturally

No-one wants to spoil the look of their favourite summer dress with unsightly dry elbows and knees. A natural fix is to combine lemon juice and baking soda until it forms a thick paste then scrub your elbows and knees with the paste to remove any build up of dry, dead skin.  Rinse thoroughly with cold water and moisturise elbows and knees by massaging in coconut oil. Leave the oil on for 30 minutes before wiping off any excess.  Repeat this process twice a week until you are happy with the result.
