We all want that radiant, glowing, healthy looking skin, especially in summer when the sun is out and more skin will be on show, so it is important to take care of the skin to get the ‘natural’ glow. Here are some tips that I use to ensure my skin is healthy and glowing all year round.
I am notorious when it comes to scrubbing my body, there is no shower without a full on body scrub in my world. ExfoIiation leaves the skin soft, smooth and radiant. Body scrubs smell so good and leave the skin clean, clear and soft. A Moroccan bath every two to four weeks, if possible, is great for a thorough scrub down.
Make time for a bath with a cup or two of Epsom salt. Use this as your personal ‘me time’, listen to music, soak away in thoughts and reflect on the day that has been. The result is soft smooth skin and a very relaxed you.
There is nothing more important than keeping both the skin and the body hydrated. Drink lots of water to keep the body hydrated and the skin clear and don’t forget to moisturize the skin, all over. It may seem like you’ll be sweaty but the skin needs that moisture to look healthy. Go for a lighter, even gel like moisturizers in summer but do not skip the moisturizer.
Apply sunblock/ sunscreen every single day, it is vital to protect your skin from the harmful rays from the sun as well as prevent burning the skin. This will ensure your skin is protected and radiant all summer long, and all year long.

Invest In ‘Glow Getters’
Sometimes we need the extra help from products to give that extra glow, especially for a special event. Nothing says summer more than radiant glowing shimmering skin. There are a few products that are my go to for this: Fenty Beauty Body Lava, Scott Barnes Body Bling etc. Highlighters are great for the collar bones and shoulders for that glistening look.
