With June on our door step and the promise of Sunnier weather & longer evenings now is a good time as any to look and feel our best, with this in mind here are a few easy at home steps to follow
- Be it a sun holiday or staycation are your plans this summer in order for the skin to look its best it need to be kept well hydrated,2/3 liters of water per day is the best hydration the skin can get followed by an all over body hydrating lotion.
- A build up of dead skin can cause the skin to appear scaly and dry looking, the best way to prevent this is to exfoliate 2/3 times per week before showering on dry skin, the particles in the scrub will lift away the dead skin allowing the new skin to absorb the nutrients leaving it soft hydrated and looking its best.
- While we all like the feeling of the sun on our skin sun tan equals skin damage so the best form of tan is a fake tan, there are many different tans on the market.I recommend a mouse for normal/oily skin types and lotion for normal/day skin types. I have tried them all (almost) and Bellamainta is my go to of choice ,it is made by a skin CARE company thus having your skin in its best interest. SPF IS A MUST ALL YEAR ROUND ON EXPOSED SKIN.
- This summer will see a huge focus on strong nail colors,pinks blues and oranges in particular, gone are the mint and pastals,a bright pop of colour on the finger and toe nails will brighten any outfit. Nail enhancements (acrylic nails) are still the go to for length strength and durability for weaker nails.With children nearing finishing school for summer, the push for the perfect house / garden for communions/parties we can easily forget about ourselves, before we realize autumn will loom and another year will begin to close. so don’t forget to enjoy life, keep your head held high and put you best polished foot forward this Summer.I hold the over 15 years of experience In the health and beauty industry here in Athenry and I offer free skin consultations at my salon,I can also offer advise and recommendations for almost any beauty queries, so feel free to email any queries Stairway2beautyathenry@gmail.c
