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.
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.
My skin is
I love Elemis oils, I’ve already used up my Frangipani one completely, so was curious about the Cellutox Active Body Oil, a sample of which I received about a year ago.
I’ve started working out on a regular basis this summer so started using this oil, too.
The brand describes it as an “energising citrus body oil (so it smells really nice) that contains a powerful synergy of detoxifying Sea-buckthorn, Sea Fennel, Lemon and Juniper.” It is supposed to help combat the build-up of toxins caused by a poor diet, stress and a sedentary lifestyle and also help to combat cellulite and condition skin.
So how do I use it?
I warm several drops of oil in my hands and massage into thighs, buttocks and abdomen. I have just noticed that the brand suggests using it on the tops of arms, so will start doing that, too, as my arms = the area I have been working on very hard for months now. I apply
I have already written about how much I loved my Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Once A Week Self Tan which I was using in summer. And today I want to tell you about the version that I am using right now.
It is called Xen-Tan Transform Luxe (£24.99)
I love my Deep Bronze but it’s a bit dark for me in winter so Transform Luxe is a perfect shade. It builds the tan gradually and gives a lighter tan which looks natural in winter on the girls with fair/light skin.
Transform Luxe is also an amazing product, it develops a light healthy looking tan, with no streaks or orange undertones. It is fool-proof. I am not an expert at self-tanning and I’ve never managed to make it look bad on me. Just make sure that you read the instructions.
As for the scent
I’ve had this post in drafts for several weeks (if not months) and since today we were talking about Elemis I think that’s the sign for me to write and publish it finally 😉
I want to tell you about the product that changed my idea about the brushes! I am talking about Elemis Skin Brush!
You can get yours for £18 or for $44 at Nordstorm if you are from the US.
This is how the brush looks like.
You may think that it’s an ordinary brush and you can get the same for a much lower price, right? If you – do be sure that you read this review till the end.
This is how the brush looks like on the other side and it’s great because you can take it in hand and you don’t have to be afraid that it will slip out of it.
It also has a holder which is amazing and really long as you can see from the photo so you can reach all you body. And there are so many more amazing things about this brush!
