Prepare to bare this summer
LOVE THE SKIN YOU’RE IN
Looking forward to summer? We are. Gentle sea breezes, big blue skies and warm summer sun – we can almost taste that first ice cream. Inevitably we will laze the days away, soaking up the sunshine, splashing around in the shallows and spending time sightseeing.
Of course this means baring just a little more skin, with shoulders, arms, legs and feet exposed as we don our favourite sun dresses and flip flops. Summer skin looks and feels wonderful, but it doesn’t just happen. Follow our tips as you prepare to bare this summer – and not only will you look good, you’ll feel good too.
Scrub up well
Reveal glowing and achieve smooth skin that makes you look more youthful and healthy.
We recommend our signature St Michaels Cornish Body Polish treatment – a 30 minute stimulating full body scrub, incorporating Cornish sea salt and aromatic oils that leave your skin radiant and soft to the touch.
Water water everywhere
Once exfoliated – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Use something that is absorbed quickly by your skin. Apply it as soon as you step out of the shower and dry off.
Don’t just hydrate from the outside either. To ensure your skin stays plump and moisturised, make sure you drink plenty of water.
Opt for the ESPA Skin Hydrator Body Wrap which includes lymphatic skin brushing to help eliminate toxins and a smoothing exfoliation, followed by an application of rich palmarosa and myrrh oils combined with skin conditioning marine mud. As you lay cocooned, you’ll be treated to a mind-calming scalp massage. Sheer bliss.
You can’t beat good looking feet
Our poor limbs have been wrapped up and hidden away for the last six months and are craving attention. Hair removal suddenly becomes a top priority – and feet are crying out for a little pampering, some bright colours, and the freedom of flip flops.
Without being biased, we’re big fans of our OPI Gold Pedicure – a soothing treat which ensures your nails look their best. It’s topped off with a glorious shade of summer and a foot and lower leg massage. This will definitely put a spring in your step, with feet feeling beach ready, supple and silky soft.
Top up your tan
We never recommend lazing too long in the sun. So if you want to flaunt a bronzed glow, try some of the new fake tan products on the market. Gone are the days of You’ve been Tango’d orange streaks and a particularly strong whiff!
Our St Tropez Full Body and Face Tan includes a full body exfoliation followed by a manual application of the tanning product. Within 24 hours you’ll develop a natural sun-kissed look, and it smells delicious too. Now you’re all set for summer – enjoy.
Just a last note
Please use the sun responsibly. Keep hydrated, wear a hat and ensure your sunglasses are UV safe. Always put a slick of suncream on exposed skin to prevent the risk of skin cancers, sun burn and peeling. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.
