2 Weeks & 6 Skincare Tips For A Holiday Perfect Skin!
Two weeks to go for your beach vacation, but there's a problem: your skin is not at all prepared for the onslaught of sun, sea, and sand. No worries. Follow our tips and you'll arrive on the beach ready to get your glow on.
1. Scrub Your Skin
To get an even tan, your skin needs to be clean. A few days before you head out on your vacation, apply a full body scrub. Face, neck, arms, back, tummy, buttocks, legs, every little inch. Choose a scrub with a grain suited to the area you're treating, and scrub when you're in the shower, as the steam will open your pores. Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Smooth scrub
2. Hydration Is Key
It's essential to hydrate and nourish your holiday skin before, during and after you've been in the sun. Two weeks before you leave, start to gorge your skin with water and lipids. Use moisturisers that hydrate and nourish your skin. The new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence is a water-based formula that penetrates up to 10 skin layers to reveal bright, radiant, crystal clear skin.
3. Fake Tan For The Sun-Kissed Glow
This is a must if you don't want to rock up with lily-white skin. A few days before you pack your bags, apply a self-tanning cream or gel. Make sure you carefully work it in, to avoid any nasty streaks. You'll turn up with enviable bronzed limbs from the off.
4. Reduce the Appearance Of Cellulite
Work in an anti-cellulite treatment to smooth the skin and improve its tone.
5. Stock Up On The Supplements
These days there are supplements that show positive effects in just a couple of weeks; take the recommended dose every morning with a glass of water. Look for supplements with essential fatty acids, vitamins A/C/E and carotenoids.
6. Eat The Right Foods
Fill your plate with oranges, carrots, lemons, kiwis, almonds, tomatoes, spinach, and oily fish, to pack your system full of vitamins, beta-carotene, and omega-3. You'll be glowing before you even step on the tarmac.
You’ve made your reservations, your itinerary is all planned out, and you’ve started counting down the days to your upcoming beach holiday.
