As the weather warms up again, our bodies tend to dry out. Our skin becomes flaky and stiff and our hair seems to just not co-operate even on a good hair day. With this in mind, I have put together my top 3 tips to spring into summer weather feeling fresh & hydrated.
A good exfoliation at this time of year is the best thing you can do for your skin. As the seasons change so does our skin. It seems that before we get that natural summer glow we have to go through a dry period as the skin readjusts to warmer weather and salty air. Doing a good skin exfoliation will help you shed your winter skin and allow that new layer to shine through. Don’t forget to nourish your skin with a body butter after the exfoliation, this will add to that silky skin feeling and help the new skin cells stay hydrated.
Use a hair mask as your conditioner
This is a great tip for whenever your hair is feeling extra dry, particularly when seasons change. When you swap your conditioner for a mask it gives it an extra dose of nourishment that won’t take up any more of your precious time. I urge you to towel dry your hair before you put the mask on or at the very least wring as much water out of your hair as possible. This will ensure the product doesn’t get watered down. To get the best results, wash your hair and apply your mask before you wash your body, exfoliate, shave, rehearse your favourite song, whatever you do in the shower make sure you wash and treat your hair first. This will allow at least a few minutes for the mask to penetrate the hair (please clip your hair up or put it in a shower cap, if it gets wet while your doing other things you won’t get optimum results)
Get a Hydra – facial
A Hydra-facial uses the latest technology in microdermabrasion treatments. The treatment uses water and crystals to exfoliate and remove stagnant dead skin cells. This leaves the skin open to receiving targeted serums that can brighten, sooth and hydrate your skin. You will notice an instant glow and more youthful appearance. Your skin will feel instantly soft & hydrated and there is no down time.
With our skin being exposed to a lot more sun and environmental pollution during summer its vital to combat the negative side effects with a treatment that can draw out those toxins and nourish your skin in one easy and pampering treatment. Plus its the perfect pre party glow treatment that will have the benefits lasting up to a week, with extended results like diminished fine lines and an even skin tone the more often you have a treatment.
A bonus tip is to take a look at the products you are currently using and make sure they don’t have any toxic chemicals in them. As your skin is highly exposed in the Summer time, its the perfect time to update your skincare routine with toxic free solutions to ensure you are giving your body only the best ingredients. Don’t forget your skin is your largest organ so whatever you put on it, your body absorbs and has to process, using results driven and toxic free skincare is going to help your body remain at its healthiest as its not fighting any harsh ingredients on a daily basis and can work hard at keeping you safe from bugs, and producing the healthiest cells with the aid of the right vitamins and safe ingredients.
