03 Jun Summer Holiday Beauty Prep – The Countdown Starts NOW
Summer is just around the corner, making now the perfect time to start prepping for fun in the sun. Whether you’re planning a staycation by the seaside or jetting off abroad, our holiday beauty prep tips will have you looking and feeling your very best.
Hydrate your body
Our first tip is to drink more water. It sounds pretty simple but many of us are guilty of not drinking half as much water as our body needs to keep healthy. In fact, a recent study found that 89% of the UK population is not drinking enough water to maintain healthy hydration levels.
Drinking plenty of water will flush out nasty toxins in the body, hydrate your skin (so you get the glow) and help to reduce bloating, so you feel more comfortable in your swimwear.
Prepare for minimal makeup
If the weather is hot and sunny, you’re not going to want to wear a full face of makeup. Prepare your skin for minimal makeup by moisturising twice daily and prepping your skin with an SPF. You could even treat yourself to a facial!
Eyelash extensions or LVL natural lash lifts are great for enhancing your lashes, saving you from having to apply mascara. For a glam look go for extensions. Prefer something more natural? An LVL lash lift is your answer.
You may also want to consider microblading and micropigmentation for your brows, so you don’t have to bother pencilling them in! However, it’s important that this treatment is carried out in plenty of time, before your holiday. You will need to avoid direct sunlight exposure for a minimum of 4 weeks and avoid swimming pools for at least two weeks after your procedure.
Get your nails done
Want to have nice nails on holiday but not have to worry about re-painting or packing polish that could spill in your suitcase? Go and get your nails done professionally! Whether you go for shellac, acrylics or a simple manicure, your nails are sure to look stunning in all of your holiday snaps.
Take a look at my Facebook page for some of the recent nail designs I’ve done for clients. I love getting creative with nails, so hit me up with your requests and we’ll come up with something exciting!
Treat yourself to a spray tan
Don’t want to turn up to the beach looking like Caspar the ghost? Fake it until you make it with a spray tan. It’s much safer than hopping on a sun bed and will get your skin looking gorgeous without baking it in the sun.
From mid-June onwards you’ll be able to book your spray tan on my website and have it carried out in the comfort of your own home by my good friend Rhea.
