Ragdale Recommends: Summer edition
Summer is upon us, which only means holiday season is here!
Getting ready to jet away is almost as exciting as the holiday itself and we’ve got the perfect products to help you look and feel good for your upcoming holiday.
Here’s our top tips to help you prepare for your holiday:
- Use a tan accelerator two to three weeks prior to your holiday. This will enable you to tan more quickly and evenly, while making your tan last longer.
- Exfoliate your whole body a few days before to help achieve that healthy glow and keep the appearance of your skin looking its best.
- Prepare for wearing strappy sandals by exfoliating, moisturising and rasping your feet. Tidy up your cuticles and perfect your nails with a high shine polish, this will finish off your pre-holiday look perfectly.
- We all know that too much sun exposure can lead to premature ageing, so make sure your sun care has anti-ageing benefits as well as UV protection.
