Summer is coming Londoners! With all that excitement around getting a new bathing suit and figuring out where your holidays are going to be, we’d like to break in with some tips to help you look your best. Now that warmer weather and summer sun is just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to start feeling light, fresh and energetic. It’s time to shake off the chilly spring weather and look forward to some fun in the summer sun!
1.Change your make-up routine and keep it simple.
The key trick in the summer is keeping the skin natural with minimal product applied. Switch to a lighter tinted moisturizer which goes with your own natural glow by adding a pop of color to the cheeks. Summer is all about minimalism so keep the eyes simple with a few coats of mascara. It’s time to treat yourself to a new small cosmetic case to keep all your essentials for the season!
2. Get your skin glowing in time
For a naturally sun kissed summer look, avoid fake tan as it is hard to apply and will make you look older.
If you like using a face cream to hydrate your skin at the same time, The Subtle Bronzing Face Cream by Laboratoires Surface-Paris gradually gives the skin a natural-looking tan, leaving it sunkissed and hydrated, and is adapted to all skin tones!
If you like using a powder bronzer, just be sure to use a big brush to apply to your cheekbones, the sides of your temples, into your hairline and the bridge of the nose. Basically wherever the sun would hit you. Make sure the bronzer isn’t too far from your natural skin tone, you don’t want to look orange!
3. Tackle body hair
Summer means more trips to the beach and more exposure to the sun. If you’re quick, you could fit in a few sessions of laser hair removal, the sort that promises a permanent reduction in the extent of your body hair. Stop treatment a few weeks before you go away. The Well in Notting Hill does pain free laser hair removal. To book your session, click here.
4. Eat juicy fruits and drink more water
Getting more water into your body, day to day, is a key behavior for promoting healthy metabolism, energy levels and glowing skin. We often overlook how important hydration is to our health. Give your skin a makeover from the inside out by drinking a lot of water.
If water is getting boring, think juicy summer fruits like watermelon, strawberry and raspberry. Eating a lot of them help promote glowing skin. If you have skin issues, watch for food sensitivities to gluten and dairy, and do your best to avoid processed foods.
5. Make your feet presentable
One good pedicure is all it takes to get your feet ready for flip-flops. Again, once professional hands have done the basic hard work, you can get by for weeks and weeks. Opt for trendy colors like red, coral or light pink.
