The season of summer is upon us and this season brings along a lot of its own burden. An example can be quoted of the skin especially with regards to women’s skin. It becomes all greasy and two toned and tanned in places where you do not want it tan. In some tropical places the skin even gets burnt with prolonged sun exposure. In short what we are trying to say is that it is damn near impossible to keep that summer glow throughout the season. But you girls have nothing to worry about since we are here to save the day. We are here with ten tips that will leave your skin ravishing fresh the whole season so much so that people will actually stop and ask you what is making you glow in the scorching sun. So ladies, peel your eyes as we enlist the top ten ways to attain and maintain a summer glow.
10. Dry Body Brush
It should be kept in mind that we are not talking about a harsh brush, the sort that will nip and peel your skin and leave you with scratch as if you have been fed to hungry and angry cats. We are talking about a soft body brush that will gently massage your skin and gets the blood flowing. This in turn will make your skin soft, supple yet firm within a matter of days.
9. Body Scrub
We tend to always pay more attention to those parts of our body that are more prone to exposure. For instance we go for regular pedicures and manicures just because our hands and feet are constantly on display. We advice that you show similar care for the rest of your body as well and that is why we suggest that you buy a granular body scrub and scrub your body twice a week with it. Start from your ankles and make your way up.
8. A Tan Plan
We all want to get reasonably tan during the summer which is why we prefer going to the beach and also using tanning beds. So what you can do to promote the tanning process and to maintain it well into the winters is to use a moisturizer every day. The difference is that the moisturizer should contain slight tanning ingredients so that day by day, that sun kissed look keeps on growing.
7. Sleeping Skin
The greatest thing about the human body is that it is self repairing. You must have heard this fact repeated countless times that our skin is in rest and repair mode while we sleep. To ensure that your skin is at its best at all times, what you can do is select a night cream that aides the repair process. You will only be helping nature do its job and you will thank yourself for it.
6. A Fresh Face
There are several different methods employed by various people to get a fresh face but here is the best and the easiest one. All you need to do is to splash your face with a little bit of rose water throughout the day. When you get time, add a teaspoon of oatmeal into a little bit of warm water to make a paste and then scrub your face with it. You will love the results and others will praise you for them.
5. Hydration Balance
We know that this might sound cliché coming from us because this statement is a constant advice from every tom dick and harry but trust, nothing can beat a well hydrated body. When you have had enough glasses of water, it shows on your skin and most of all, drinking water keeps you cool in the summer too. You can add mint leaves, cucumbers slices and even slices of lemon to your water to spice up the taste a bit.
4. Go Green
If you visit a fitness page or any health and nutrition page, the most frequent thing will probably be a green smoothie. These smoothies are easy to make and the leafy green will provide you with the right amount of vitamins, minerals and amine acids. Just take four leafy green vegetables of your choice, add a few flax seeds and a few mint leaves; mix it up and gulp down a glass every morning. Your skin will breathe a sigh of relief.
3. Eat your way to Radiance
Call this the road to radiance if you will but they don’t lie when they say that you are what you eat. So if you want to look radiant and gorgeous, eat enough nuts and berries, fruits and vegetables, and drink enough water. Trust us, by the time you have made your way through these, you won’t need much else.
2. Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon hydrotherapy, as the name indicates, is what removes excess waste and bacteria from your colon. Consider that this treatment does for your colon what fluoride does for your teeth. So this is something that you can do to truly eliminate toxins from your body.
