Cellulite, stubble, ingrown hairs, rough knees and elbows... these are definitely not what we need with summer knocking on our door! We can’t help with the cellulite, but we can help with the rest. Here are some tips to help you get your skin in soft-and-peachy shape, ready to take on those wonderfully sunny days.

Scrub your body and limbs
Pamper yourself at least once a week (but it’s even better 2 to 3 times!) with a good body scrub to remove those dead skin cells. Try the deightful Beach Prep from Elemental Herbology. This 3-in-1 product exfoliates, moisturizes and leaves your skin looking radiant. Apply the scrub to damp skin in a vigorous circular motion, paying particular attention to areas where in-grown hairs and blocked pores are more prevalent, such as underarms, bikini line and backs of arms.

Be good to your skin
Don’t stay in the shower for too long (limit it to 15 minutes max.), and use warm as opposed to hot water. Your skin will thank you for it, as it won’t dry out so quickly. Use a hydrating shower gel, like the Deep Cleanse - Summer Body Wash from Elemental Herbology; it contains an apple based foaming agent and gives you a silky smooth, clear and calm complexion all summer long.

Shaving Secrets
If you shave in the shower, it’s a good idea to stand under the running water for a few minutes before you start so as to soften the hairs. But don’t overdo it! If you sit/stand in the water for more than 10 minutes, your skin starts to swell and becomes weak; and this is no good at all for a smooth shave.

And moisturize!
After your shower, quickly and gently pat the skin partially dry with a towel (do not rub!). Next, apply a good-quality body lotion (preferably containing glycerin) to ‘seal’ the water in the skin before it can evaporate. Keep the lotion to hand in your bathroom so you don’t forget to moisturize after each shower. We’re very happy, for example, with the Vitamin B5 Body Moisturizer from (Malin + Goetz). This oil-free, residue-free body lotion contains soothing bergamot extract to protect all skin types with 24-hour hydration. It’s also easily absorbed, making life as easy as One (smear on the cream), Two (slip on your clothes), Three (step out the door)!
