Tips to maintain your holiday beauty

1.) The importance of a good exfoliation should never be underestimated. The sun produces melanin in the top layer of our skin which in turn colours the top layer, giving us that bronzed glow. This layer of skin sheds approximately every 2 weeks. It is therefore important that an exfoliation like the ESPA Exfoliating Body Scrub treatment is done to ensure the skin cells are at the very start of their cycle. This will ensure your tan lasts longer and is maintained.

2.) Always lather on sun lotion! It is a common made assumption that sun tan lotion will prevent you from getting a great tan. Ensure you spread an SPF factor 10+ over your whole body and be careful not to miss any spots! As well as having great moisturising properties, sun tan lotion will prevent you from burning. This will allow your body to gradually tan, making your colour last longer.

3.) Be sure to drink a lot of water during your holiday. This will ensure your cells are well hydrated, preventing your skin from shedding quickly.

4.) To keep your holiday skin soft and supple you must moisturise at least twice a day. This works best in the morning and at night.

5.) To maintain your manicure and pedicure ensure you are applying a topcoat daily. A  clear top coat works as a barrier to protect your polish from chipping. Remember that nails always chip at the tips quickly, so apply the top coat at the tips first!
