There are a few hacks that could change your skincare routine for the better and leave your skin feeling the best it has ever felt. Try these expert steps to improve your skin and achieve a flawless finish.

SKINCARE TIPS FOR THE BODY

Shave with Conditioner Instead of Shaving Cream: Irresistible legs are great to show off in summer dresses, so use a hair conditioner instead; apply just like you would a shaving cream and you will notice how much softer your skin will feel. Conditioner also causes less risk of accidental cuts while you shave. 

Apply Sun Cream: Exposing your skin to too much sunshine can be dangerous.  Apply an appropriate amount of sun cream to protect your skin from UV rays.  This will reduce the risk of sunburn and help to prevent harmful skin conditions. I have lots of sun protection reviews on my blog.

Patch Test: Summer is a great time to invest in new fruity and tropical smelling lotions, creams and body sprays. Always test some of the product on your skin before you buy it to avoid reactions and allergies. Most stores and online brands offer a sample sachet you can try before using.

Fill Your Bath With Goodies: Try baby oil in your bath to give your skin a radiant glow, just be careful as it’ll get slippy!

Exfoliate: Pay particular attention to your elbows and knees when exfoliating and be careful not to over-exfoliate. Using gentle, circular motions with a body scrub or exfoliating cleanser, this step should only take a couple of minutes and shouldn’t be done more than three times per week. 

SKINCARE TIPS FOR THE BODY

Keep Your Skin Hydrated: From drinking enough water to hydrating your skin with a moisturiser twice a day, staying hydrated will do wonders for your facial skin. No matter what your skin type, don’t miss out this step in your daily routine.

Fight That Acne:  Although you probably shouldn’t, if you are going to pop a pimple, make sure they’re ready first and that you have clean hands.  Use the tissue method to avoid spreading bacteria around your face causing potential scars and more acne. Dermatologist approved products can be used to help acne and a number of natural remedies can be used too.

Take Care of Your Lips: Don’t neglect your lips in your pampering routine. Using products that are rich in Vitamin A, C and E will help to maintain healthy lips. Acai and Mango Sugar Lip Scrub is a great product to use to exfoliate your lips and restore moisture. Get this for your lips to improve the appearance and feel of your lips.

Pamper Your Eyes: Long summer days full of energetic activities can leave your eyes looking tired. There are quite a few ways to easy this naturally by using items like cold cucumber and camomile tea bags on your eyes. Anti-inflammatory elements in these ingredients could help to reduce any swelling around the eyes. 

Know Your Skin Type: Knowing your skin type will ensure you are using the correct products and ingredients that will benefit your face. To learn about your skin type, help can be provided by professionals or you can find information online about defining your skin type

Your skin will be summer-ready when these tips are used. Feeling good about yourself and looking your best will boost your mood and confidence, so give them a go this summer and enjoy feeling like your best self.
