Summer is still in full swing, which means hot nights, cool drinks and endless days at the beach. We’re all at our best in summer, with glowing skin, rosy cheeks and more time spent with family and friends.
While some of you are lucky enough to live in parts of Australia where the temperature never drops too low, for those in the southern states summer is all too fleeting. It seems we’re just getting a taste for the hot weather when the mercury dips back below 20 degrees and stays there for the next few months.
How can you maintain that summer glow and feeling that we love so much? Here are a few tips to keep your summer skin and vibes lasting while the weather cools down.
A Glowing Tanned Body
Of course you should only be rocking a fake tan in summer– while the sun feels lovely on your skin you should always be protected by SPF. Before you start tanning you’ll need to prep your skin and exfoliate away some of those dead skin cells. To achieve instant island paradise in your bathroom use Chinta Island's Body Polish with lime and coconut. Delish!
A sweeping of bronzer across your t-zone gives you an instant lift and adds much needed colour to your face. We love Sleek MakeUP Bronze Block. A day at the beach leaves your cheeks looking pink and fresh. Try theBalm Hot Mama Blush for a natural flush. Your skin has a beautiful natural shine to it during the warmer months, so capture the perfect glow with theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer.
Bright Nail Polish
Summer nails mean colour! Capture the colour of the sun, the beach and the beautiful blooms. Our pick for year round summer nails is essie’s fashion playground for a beautiful pistachio shimmer. Available from Priceline.
The smell of coconut instantly reminds us of summer. One way to bring a little coconut into your life is with a Casper & Lewis Fresh Fruit Gloss in Coconut. This coconut scented gloss moistens your lips and helps them to shine, plus the packaging is super cute. Available from casperlewis.com.au.
Capture that tropical scent in your bathroom. Choose a summery shower gel like Original Source Vanilla & Raspberry or Mint & Tea Tree. Dim the lights in your bathroom, close your eyes and imagine you’re bathing under a warm tropical waterfall. Available from Woolworths.
