Whether you are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the British summertime and have already invested in a new summer wardrobe, or else are counting down the days until you jet away to a foreign country for a week on the beach, either way, you have come to the right place.
A summer body, contrary to what glossy magazines and airbrushed media campaigns would have you believe, has got nothing to do with your appearance and everything to do with your confidence and the condition of your skin.
So, with this in mind, here is how to get your body ready for the summer sun.
Deep Tanning Lotion
Throughout the autumn and winter and if you are being honest, for most of the springtime too, English weather is such that it is usually too cold and windy to have bare legs, even when chilling out in the garden.
This results in the familiar feeling of looking like a Drumstick sweet when you do finally expose your legs to the sun, and the contrast between the whiteness of your covered skin and the redness of your sunburnt one is as unsightly as it is dangerous.
This is why it is strongly advisable to adequately prepare your skin for the sunshine, and even though you will naturally be wearing a sun cream with a high UV protection factor when outside, you should also start using a deep tanning lotion before you leave. Tanning lotions not only contain their own SPF factor but will also give your legs and arms the moisture they need to look healthy and glowing when in the sunshine.
Laser Hair Removal
These days, there are numerous ways in which you can remove any unwanted hairs, from the top of your lip to your bikini line, and all have their positives as well as, conversely, their negatives.
However, when it comes to feeling confident in your bikini or swimsuit, there is really only one way to get rid of hair so that you do not need to think about it on holiday, and that is laser hair removal in Abingdon.
There is a wide plethora of choosing laser over other common forms of hair removal, including the avoidance of burning and cutting the skin, a thinner consistency of hair when it does start to grow back, and to help avoid painful and unsightly ingrowing hairs.
Remember to Relax
After all the preparation, in the context of either getting everything ready for a family barbecue in the garden or else packing and organizing yourself and the rest of your household for a holiday, it can often feel as if you need a holiday to recover.
The best way you can look after your skin, both in the summer months and, indeed, throughout the rest of the year, comes down to two main factors; drink more water and get enough rest.
As long as you are covered in a high SPF sun cream and are protecting your eyes, lie back in the sunshine and truly enjoy the feeling of warmth and relaxation it provides.
