Exfoliating my face and body is one of my favourite things to do and one that I try to maintain in a routine throughout the year. To pamper and polish my limbs, I always reach for my loyal Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Scrub as it has a sweet scent which lingers on the skin after use. If I'm after something a little more heavy duty then the Lush Rub Rub Rub is my go-to. With added sea salt and mimosa, this scrub is packed full of ingredients which rejuvenate the skin, stimulate circulation and prepare the body for moisturising.
Throughout the year I always suffer with dehydrated skin, so its vital that I concentrate on hydrating on a regular basis. For me, moisturising is a chore I like to avoid, but ever since I started using the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil and Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner duo I have started to enjoy it. Both products enable you to moisturise in the shower, transforming parched, lacklustre skin in an instant - Perfect for those in a rush.
My legs have barely seen the light of day since last Summer, so I've started applying fake tan regularly. The Benefit Hoola Zero Tan Lines* has bee my port of call lately as it gives off a light wash of colour with little fuss. With a light, floral fragrance this is a go-to if I need a bronzed body quickly. If you're looking for something that will last longer than 12 hours then I thoroughly recommend trying the He-Shi Gold Foaming Mousse*; an easy to apply, fool proof tan that develops without streaks and can easily be removed.
