Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and no matter what your body type is, you should always feel at your most confident when you're prepped, pampered and ready for the beach. Check out our quick guide to beach ready body rituals that will have you beaming this summer.
It's fair to say, that through the winter months our skin doesn't get as much love as in the summer. Usually it's bundled up under layers of clothing and barely catch a glimpse of daylight. Before you head out to the beach make sure buff and cleanse your skin all over to remove any dead skin cells and reveal soft and silky skin. Think of it like you're shedding your winter layers and emerging from the chrysalis as a social summer butterfly.
For a serious scrubbing try DIRTEA Organic Diamond Scrub which is packed full of organic white tea powder, activated charcoal, sea salts and sugar cane. It will exfoliate, detox and abolish toxins and chemicals that come into contact with our skin, leaving you smooth and radiant.
Soothe your freshly exfoliated skin with a rich and hydrating body moisturiser to inject some moisture and help you get that glow. Connock London's incredible Kukui Oil Hydrating Hand and Body Lotion is rich in fatty acids and the Shea butter composition conditions and plumps up the skin so that it is left soft, glowing and delicately fragranced. This is a fantastic product to immediately hydrate dry, rough or dull looking skin, and help reduce the visible signs of ageing.
3. Nourish your body
Try adding healthy supplements to your diet to help you radiate wellness from the inside. Bare Biology Lion Heart Capsules are an incredible source of Omega 3, which is essential for healthy skin hair and nails.
4. Ditch the Coffee
Caffeine can cause bloating, or exacerbate existing conditions. If you're feeling less than great, or especially bloated it's hard to be brave and face the bikini it might be worth cutting down your caffeine consumption and replacing your daily intake with a herbal tea.
TEATOX Daily Balance Organic Wellness Tea contains verbena, known for its soothing effect, ginger which is packed with healthy minerals, vitamins and essential oils and honeybush which gives it a sweet note and a relaxing effect.
For an extra boost of confidence, pick products that have an airbrush effect or contain light reflecting particles. This could take your beach photos to the next level as you'll be looking glowing and flawless without the help of photo editing.
For the body, check out PRTTY PEASHUN body lotion a firming formula which is tinted and comes in a variety of shades. It gently tightens the skin as well as making your skin shimmer and glow.
For the face, the revolutionary NIOD Photography Fluid is incredible for giving you a photo finish look. Apply instead of or under liquid foundation to balance out undesirable colour tones and skin imperfections.
