Ten Top Tips for Looking After your Skin
As the weather heats up and our thoughts turn to the warm, dreamy days of summer, our fashion alters in order to keep us cool. Out of the wardrobe dance the short sleeved tops and more revealing skirts and dresses, gone are the trousers, scarves and long sleeved jackets. The love of the outdoors and our yearning for the precious rays of sun to caress our bodies and warm our souls can sometimes become an over-indulgent pastime, leaving us in need of some skincare that provides a little TLC! However, before we arrive at that uncomfortable stage, I would like to offer you my advice on how to prepare and look after your skin, and avoid the burn.
1 – To detoxify and remove the sluggish feel of the dark winter months, kick start your day without the need for a caffeine fix in the morning by bathing in Pink Himalayan Salts in the evening before retiring to bed. They are considered to be one of the purest salts with upward of 84 highly beneficial minerals and trace elements including calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium and can be an effective treatment for dry skin, psoriasis and acne. Furthermore, the salts work to hydrate the skin giving you softer, smoother skin.
2 – Dry skin on the feet, soon to be exposed by wearing strappy sandals need to be cared for so that they look amazing! Remove any dry patches on the heel or the ball of the foot using a pumice stone or a volcanic lava stone. Follow this treatment by using a good quality moisturising cream and you will be ready to wear the sexiest of footwear!
3 – Exfoliate by using a natural ramie scrunchie in the shower or bath.When dry skin is removed from the surface, your body will take on a more youthful glow. Ramie is an eco-friendly material, derived from a crop that has a life of up to 20 years and which can be harvested up to 6 times per year. It is an ideal beauty accessory to use in the shower as it possesses anti-bacterial and anti-mildew properties. This ensures your scrunchie is long lasting and does not obtain the black mildew stains like the synthetic scrunchies.
