How to get your skin beach ready for the Summer

Summer is coming… well, not everywhere yet, but it can`t hurt to be ready once it finally arrives. Soon there will be beach parties & BBQ`s and summer dresses & flip flops will come out. So here are a few things you can do to get your skin ready for those long summer days, plus I added some homemade spa tips!

Exfoliate

How to make your skin beach ready with this homemade sugar scrub

Exfoliate your skin as it`s been hidden away during the Winter. I found this recipe online, so you don`t even have to go to the shop to buy one. Just check your pantry and mix the following ingredients together for your own homemade sugar scrub:

  • 10 tablespoons of fine sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil (or almond oil)
  • 1 lemon
  • a few drops of lavender essence

Mix the salt and oil well, then add the lemon juice and essence of lavender. Et voila, your own sugar scrub!

Pedicure

How to get your skin beach ready with a DIY Pedicure

With a pedicure you not only pamper your feet after they`ve been locked up in closed shoes, but if you add a bit of color on your nails, it brings a nice extra to your summer outfit.

I found this step-by-step guide for a DIY pedicure at home, together with some foot scrub recipes, so make sure to check it out.

Smooth Summer Legs

How to get beach ready and have smooth summer legs

To get rid of unwanted hair, I still prefer waxing and suggest by someone else. I`ve tried the other options of shaving and using an epilator. The epilator is a good way, but from experience waxing keeps the hairs away for longer. I`ve also done waxing at home with wax strips, but if I`m going on a beach vacation, getting it done by a professional just gives me a better feeling that it`s done right. Even though it`s not the most pleasant experience, if you combine it with getting a pedicure or a facial, you have a mini pampering session even before you start your vacation.

Moisturize and glow

Honey & Lemon DIY Face Mask

Who doesn`t want to glow after the gloominess of winter? Your skin will be thankful for the extra attention it`s getting and the after effect will be you shining to welcome the Summer!

You can either take it easy with some yoga on the beach, go on the water during a Paddle Board yoga session or have your own  beach workout.
