During the Summer I definitely put more of an effort into pampering my body. Exfoliating, moisturising and fake tanning are all part of my ritual, so today I thought I would share with you my top body picks for this season.
Exfoliators barely ever change in my routine as I usually stick to this Soap and Glory offering, or my trusty The Body Shop Spa of the World Salt Scrub*. These two help to scrub away dead skin cells, leaving fresher, smoother and softer skin ready for moisturising.
The Dove DermaSpa Goodness Body Cream* helps to replenish and nourish everywhere; perfect for when my hayfever-ridden body is feeling dehydrated and itchy. Enriched with Argan Oil, this rich cream feels lightweight on the skin and adds an overall luminosity, without being too heavy or thick for all over use.
The Summer often means getting the pins out and for me, a faux tan gives me more confidence and adds an overall glow to the body. The Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Tan is a top shelf favourite of mine, as the dry oil develops overnight in to a natural, deep tan that can be easily built up and worn without washing off for a quick, easy fix. When I'm tanned, I always top up my tan with the Zoella Body Fondant Shimmer Balm to enhance my natural glow and give my limbs a healthy sheen. I like to apply this balm across my shoulders, along my shins and anywhere that the sun naturally hits.
When I was in my early teens, I was never without a body spray in my bag. Many years later and I've rekindled the love, this time with the Impulse Why Not? Body Fragrance*. With a tropical and citrus mixed scent, this is perfect for the Summertime when you want to freshen up throughout the day.
