Why should I exfoliate?
After epilating, exfoliation helps to refresh the skin’s surface appearance by removing dead skin cells to reveal smoother new skin beneath. It also prevents hair follicles from becoming clogged, and avoids unsightly ingrown hairs. For best exfoliation results, use Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa – epilator and exfoliator in one device. The exfoliation brush removes dead skin cells at over 3,000 micro-vibrations a minute, for results that are better and more even than with a manual scrub.
Build a natural tan, gradually and safely, by protecting your skin with a high factor sun screen.
Cheat with the help of faux tanners. These will always look more natural on already sun-kissed skin. Choose a body moisturizer with built-in faux tanning ingredients and you can avoid any streaky mistakes from heavy-handed application.
Try Olay Quench Plus Touch of Sun Body Lotion to get the deep moisturizing that summer skin needs. It will also give you a gentle, slow developing tan.
In summer, epilation is a better option than waxing, since the low impact on the skin won’t remove the tan from your beautiful smooth legs.
Top make-up artist Patricia O’Neill says: “When I’m on a photographic shoot I always run a rich body lotion over the models’ legs. It’s the basis of glowing smooth skin and it creates that ultra-perfect finish. And it adds sheen, which is picked up by a photographer’s lights or naturally in the sunshine.”
Lock moisture into your skin with a body oil. Apply it no longer than 5 minutes after getting out of the shower. Not only will oil keep your skin beautifully hydrated, it will also add a gorgeous sheen to your skin.
