1. Exfoliate, and exfoliate again! This is the best way to get that summer glow. Listen to your skin—sensitive and dry types need to be more gentle than combination and oily types. Exfoliating your skin is a very important step when it comes to skin care as dead skin cells build up on the skin causing the skin to be more prone to developing certain skin problems, plus the skin will not look as soft and delicate as it is supposed to. Mild exfoliating products help remove dead skin cells, allowing the skin to receive a soft and delicate look. Try our Dead Sea Scrub, which has a hard-working blend of dead sea mud, lavender, and rosemary to help clear up skin. You can also use it on your hands, arms, feet and legs to get yourself ready for shorts, sandals, and short-sleeved tops. Don’t forget your lips! Exfoliate gently, then hydrate..

2. Moisturize you skin. Skin moisturizers allow the skin to receive a soft and silky finish, especially after bathing or the exfoliation process. Not hydrating the skin can cause it to dry, leaving your skin feeling tight, itchy and uncomfortable. Moisturizers prevent that from happening and allow the skin to maintain its elasticity and softness. Don’t forget to protect your face properly. You should also protect your lips with a lip balm that has SPF of at least 15.

* Use a day cream – it’s really important to not only keep the skin hydrated but to protect it too. Use a day cream with added sunscreen on your face and neck. A high SPF of 30+ will also help to protect your skin from UV rays which are a common cause of premature aging.

* Choosing lighter products that are water-based, look for makeup products that do double duty like BB creams that contain a moisturizer, foundation and SPF in one, and use an oil-absorbing clay mask once a week.

* Use a night cream – there are a wide range of night creams available to buy that will help you achieve healthy looking skin whilst you sleep. Look for rich yet non-greasy creams with active ingredients such as glycerin or shea butter which help to hydrate the skin and help it retain moisture. Many night creams also help to combat wrinkles too.

3. Drink plenty of water – it’s true that beautiful skin is achieved from the inside out so by drinking plenty of water you will help hydrate the skin. It is recommended by beauticians and health experts to drink 2.5 litres of water per day.

4. Eat healthy. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, which means it’s affected by what you eat. To prepare for summer, start stacking up on luscious, juicy fruits and vegetables. These not only help hydrate your skin, but give you that extra antioxidant boost that protects. Giving your body the essential vitamins it needs is a must when it comes to preparing your skin for summer. You skin needs certain vitamins in order for it to look fabulous and to be able to be exposed to the sun. The vitamins needed can be obtained through a proper healthy and nutritious diet or through vitamin supplements. This way the skin will radiate beauty and it will have all the necessary strength to look fabulous during the summer.

5. Protect your skin. If you follow these steps, you should notice your skin starting to turn around for summer, looking more smooth, even, and radiant. At this point, it’s extremely important that you protect your skin from the sun. Especially if you’re exfoliating regularly, your cells are more vulnerable to UV damage. Hats, sunglasses, and shade are your best protection, but when these are impractical, choose a safe sunscreen and remember to reapply regularly. You can choose to use a tanning lotion or have a spray tan done, both give great results.
