Hands up if all summer long you’ve been out by the pool trying to perfect your tan? Followed by a dip or two to cool you down of course.
Yepp, my hands sure are way up! 🙋
As the lazy summer days go on and we spend more time outside, it’s important to not just focus on tanning and getting as much color as we can, but also keep in mind the health of our skin and how it feels?
The sun can be very drying and even achieving that J-Lo glow isn’t going to be sexy if your skin feels like sandpaper! That's why in this week’s edition of Inside Scoop I’ve prepared for you a few of our favorite ways you can treat yourself to achieve that silky soft and touchable skin of your dreams!
Don’t even think about applying your body moisturizer if you haven’t scrubbed up first! The best way to ensure your lotion simply melts into your skin is to treat your skin to a full body exfoliation in the shower.
Don’t bother with those conventional scrubs, filled with nasty synthetics, and instead whip up this natural beauty! This scrub smells good enough to eat, and because it’s all natural you actually can! The sugar helps to remove all traces of dead skin to leave your skin glowing, while coconut oil (which we love) adds a tropical flavor and deep hydration.
Last, but definitely not least, cocoa infuses your skin with antioxidants and creates a decadent chocolate heaven!
Keep It Cool
Be sure to keep your shower water cool or lukewarm, because hot water will strip your skin of natural oils, leaving it dry and less than sexy. If your shower water is warm, finish off with a burst of cool water to lock in the oils of your scrub and to rejuvenate and refresh your mind and body!
You’ll also get the added health benefits of an icy blast at the end of your shower.
Finish Off With A Body Butter
Now that your skin is scrubbed and prepped, it’s time for the real magic to begin. Simply pat your skin dry, and while it’s still damp, apply one of our luxurious body butters. By applying it to damp skin, you allow for better absorption.
Our body butters are jam-packed with rich oils, powerful antioxidants and soothing ingredients to soften, smooth, hydrate and even reduce inflammation. With a range of mouthwatering flavors, you may have a hard time choosing your favorite one!
