If you’re hitting the beach this summer, our Beauty Express Team have some fantastic recommendations about how to prepare your skin and stay looking glamorous.
Laying on a hot sandy beach is nice, but the heat, sand and sea water can play havoc with your summer look, and with the added worry of wanting to look great in your bikini, it can leave some of us feeling a little self conscious.
That’s why our beauty experts have come up with a fail-safe glamour plan to keep you looking gorgeous at the beach or by the pool (in fact, anywhere).
Protecting your skin with the correct SPF lotion is essential but often means you have to ditch the make-up, so if this makes you nervous try one of these solutions…
Let the Beauty Express team transform your lashes and brows until they’re perfectly groomed with an All About Eyes treatment. The treatment includes an eyelash tint, eyebrow tint and eyebrow tidy.
If you cannot survive without mascara but are worried about ‘panda eyes’ after heading off for a dip, try our Lash Perfect Eyelash Extensions for a glamorous mascara look with an instant lift.
Then of course there’s High Definition Brows, the market-leading brow treatment. Eyebrows frame your face and instantly lift your eyes making them brighter and more youthful looking.
Not forgetting hands and feet, CND Shellac has a wear time of 10-14 days, and with loads of beautiful summer shades to choose from, this chip resistant varnish will leave your fingers and toes looking the part all holiday. Our fave summer colours are Tropics, Salmon Run, Pink Bikini and Tutti Frutti.
Add a little natural glow to your skin before soaking up the sunshine, with these great products:
The Decleor 1000 Grain Body Scrub (£26) will leave your skin soft and smooth, and will prepare it for any tanning products.
The Brazilian Bronze Duo gives the skin a gradual tan and also includes tan accelerator. Currently great value at £37.50 with a free sarong, it’s perfect for those who need that extra little bit of cover up.
The Decleor Aromessence Solaire is a holiday prep must-have. This very clever body serum alerts your skin for the summer by stimulating your natural melanin. Not only will this product help you to tan, it will prepare, protect and help maintain your tan for longer.
Use Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Booster for a sun-kissed look to your face. This simple yet very effective product can be added to any facial moisturiser to give a natural and gradual tan. Just simply add 2-3 drops to your moisturiser and watch your skin change day by day.
We can’t guarantee our recommendations will transform you into Kate Moss, but they will divert attention from the bits you’re most worried about and add some glamorous touches to your look, leaving you feeling confident from the inside, out.
