With summer just around the corner, the thought of bare arms, bare legs and generally having more skin on show than we’ve had on show (even in doors) for a long time is a little daunting! However, a little bit of preparation now will go a long way! We do love summer dresses and skirts but we don’t like having to shave all the time. Guys we know you have to shave everyday, but the odd bit of stubble on a man can be sexy, on a woman however, it’s not sexy at all! So ladies better get those razors/wax strips/hair removal creams out and at the ready. For those of you that suffer from sensitive skin, especially after shaving, try a basic, unperfumed moisturiser as it will soothe and cool the post-shave burning feeling and will also leave your legs soft and well moisturised. Exfoliating on a regular basis helps to boost the skins radiance and to encourage new skin growth, this will leave your skin glowing. This seasons skirts, dresses and shorts are short so the more preparation you do now, the more confident you will be in this season’s hemline.
As the sun’s rays strengthen it’s even more important to be wearing a facial moisturiser with an SPF of at least 15. It’s also a good time of year to start thinking about eye protection. We’ve had some lovely sunny days already this year and it’s just as important to protect your eyes from the sun’s rays as it is your skin. (Like you needed an excuse to go out and buy a fabulous new pair of sunglasses)!
One thing to be grateful for is that beauty is going natural. Although we do enjoy experimenting with false eyelashes, they’re great fun and very now, but overall the emphasis is on natural effortless beauty which means less time getting ready and more time enjoying ourselves and our natural beauty. Hurray!
