Your easy guide to full-body loveliness, which will have you ready for some fun in the sun:
In the Buff
Exfoliating twice a week gets rid of dry, flaky skin and helps your skin to better absorb moisture. Here’s how to do right:
If you use a mitt or loofah, make sure that you disinfect and dry it thoroughly as it can become a breeding ground for bacteria. Don’t exfoliate skin prone to problems like eczema, varicose veins, psoriasis or sun sensitivity.
Banish the Orange Peel
Cellulite. Just the word is enough to send us into a complete bikini panic. It affects up to 80% of women, which means that many thin and fit women have it too. Tackle cellulite from the inside by drinking lots of water (this plumps your skin’s outer layer, diminishing the orange-peel appearance), eating lots of fruit, and avoiding saturated fat. Hitting the gym is also a great strategy because exercise burns fat and increases blood circulation, to lessen those dimples.
Quench Thirsty Skin
Giving your skin a fresh, dewy glow means making sure it’s properly moisturised. Hydration should start in the shower with a gentle body wash, followed by applying a nourishing moisturiser.
Treat your Feet
We all lavish time and care on our hair and face, but our feet often end up on the bottom of our list of beauty priorities. Get your toes looking great by getting a really good pedicure, which will get rid of dry, hard skin callouses.
