SUMMER WEEK: Summer-Ready Skin!

All week my posts will be summer-related. Enjoy!
Now that summer is here, chances are you're showing more skin. If you didn't spend all winter moisturizing, here are my best tips on how to get skin soft, glowing, and summer-ready.

  • Apply a hand salve before bedtime to have smooth, soft hands in the morning.  I recommend then wearing soft gloves, like these. 
  • Use the same method for feet! Try coconut oil & fuzzy socks.
  • Before exiting the shower (or within 2 minutes of exiting the shower), apply lotion to skin and then gently pat off with towel. Be careful exiting the shower. Too much product and you'll be greasy all day. I always get compliments on my soft skin & attribute it to this.
  • Since I'm getting older, and live in a smog-ridden city, I use body butter, or coconut oil, or coca butter gel oil.
  • Tanning artificially and natural will dry out your skin. Be sure to moisturize!

Stay tuned for beauty, hair ideas, and nail tutorials for summer!
