Blogstar entry: 4 ways to achieve indefinite summer beauty
It’s that time of the year again, where the warmer months are slowly starting to come around and you have time to enjoy those lazy afternoons, seeing orange streaked across your sky. As gorgeous as nature is, our skin and body is suffering from the aftermath of hibernation, during the cold winter months.
Here are 4 tips to get your feeling more than glamorous this summer.
Hit the Outdoors
Staying healthy this summer can be easily achieved by heading outdoors more. Not only do your get the benefits of vitamin D from the sun, which can help your achieve a glorious tanned glow but you also increase oxygen intake which stimulates your skin’s metabolism. On top of that, staying hydrated is crucial to replenish lost moisture and wash out bad toxins inside your body. A breath of fresh air away from the four walls of your house can invigorate your senses and bring a brighter day.
Catch Some Beauty Sleep
It’s recommended for adults to get at least 8 hours of sleep a day but realistically, our busy schedules prevent us from doing so. No matter what priorities you have or activities you have planned, it’s important to slow down and allocate sufficient time every day to catch a few more extra hours of sleep. Sleep has been scientifically proven to turn back the years on your face by reducing wrinkle lines and nasty eye bags. So next time you sleep, you never know if you could wake up looking and feeling 5 years younger.
Turn Over a New layer of skin
A quick remedy for those days when your skin is looking extra dull is to use an exfoliator to scrub away those nasty dead skin particles. Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant is a gentle rice based exfoliator with vitamin C and salicylic acid making it great for all skin types. Not only does it reveal a smooth, bright complexion, it can help reduce pigmentation for a more even skin tone. Don’t fear if your wallet is a tad tight, St Ive’s Olive scrub will do the trick, for a fraction of the cost. Soothing ingredients like olive oil and jojoba beads help boost moisture while removing impurities, to give your skin a plump, healthy impression.
Think like a beauty
One of the most basic and fundamental steps is to harness your inner beauty to boost your physical attractiveness. Each and every human being is special, unique and super fabulous in their special way. By accepting our flaws, and painting a big smile across our face, a brighter and bigger future is instantly opened up.
If all else fails, you always have the choice of resorting to your foundation and concealer to cover up our blemishes but never forget that “beauty is only skin deep”. So beauties keep smiling and go outside to flaunt the one and only beautiful ‘you’ this Summer.
