Get Your Skin Summer Ready: Step by Step

I am not a big fan of all those “get in shape in 10 days” and “bikini ready in a week” features which are all over the Internet and in press every summer. But there are ways to make your skin look “summer ready”, as cliche as it sounds. And, since it is a beauty website, here is a step by step guide on what products and procedures I swear by.

Exfoliate

I am a big fan of dry skin brushing, and I know that   a  lot of models swear by it, too.  My personal favourite is definitely Elemis Skin Brush. It is not the cheapest option but really worth the money, in my opinion. I actually have two.

Coffee scrubs will also help in terms of making your skin softer and smoother. They should also help in reducing cellulite, at least  I read such feedback from people who have been using them long enough.

Summer Must Have: Golden Shimmer Body Oils

Moreover, some of them are multi-purpose and can be used on face and hair, as well.

Also, even if you splurge on an oil, like I  did, it will last you for ages.

Winter Body Care Essential: Oils for Bath and Body

I have a very dry skin, and, unless I want it to be flaky and dried out, I have to upgrade my body care routine in Winter. And oils are the best product for that.

Here are some of  the body oils that I have been loving lately.

Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil (£20), see my full review here.

This is a brilliant two-in-one product as you can use it as a bath oil and body oil. In winter I use it on the damp skin before the body butter.

Linden Leaves Memories Body Oil  (€ 31.93), read my detailed review here.

LL is a brand from New Zealand that offers four body oils with fruits or flowers inside the bottle which looks gorgeous and would make a fantastic gift. I have
