1. Sunscreen is the key to youth – it really is
My favourite sunscreen is Neutrogena Face Sun Screen- it absorbs quickly and does not leave an oily residue so wear it in the highest factor possible! Remember, that make up can give you the tan you want without the wrinkles and sunspots.
2. Sea salt for the hair
My friends think I am crazy when I tell them the secret to my beachy hair look all year round! After washing and conditioning my hair as normal I put sea salt water through it and leave it to dry naturally.
On my many visits to the beach I grab a spray bottle and fill it up with natural sea salt water.
A little tip if you want to lighten your hair add some strong chamomile tea or black tea to darken your hair.
3. Baking soda
A gleaming smile is a summer essential. I have been through every at home whitening kit in addition to chemical whitening at the dentist and I can guarantee nothing works better than baking soda. Simply brush your teeth with your normal toothpaste and when finished dip your brush in your baking soda and brush away. Though this is not the most amazing taste in the world but results are guaranteed. In two weeks your teeth will be noticeably whiter.
4. Caffeine Cellulite scrub
This DIY body scrub is a natural remedy for cellulite and soft, smooth skin. The coffee grinds act as a natural exfoliant and the coconut oil replenishes moisture back into the skin, the caffeine stimulates blood flow to minimise the appearance of dimples.
1 cup fresh ground coffee
1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
Add a drop of your favourite essential oil (my favourite is peppermint or lavender)
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until the the texture becomes pasty and scrub-like. If necessary, add more of any ingredient until you reach a desired consistency. Store in an air tight container.
5. LeTan Deep bronze
This is the best tan I have ever used – it is water resistant and lasts all day. One of my pet hates is patchy tan – nothing looks worse. This is the exact reason why I never use tans that develop over time because they look great for a day or two and then terrible for a week as you try to scrub it off.
The La Tan Deep Bronze Legs can be used on the whole body and it looks amazing. The best thing is is won't come off in the water so it's perfect for the beach. All you have to do at the end of the day is come home and wash it away with soap and you are left with perfectly clear skin!
Follow this five tips and you could be perfectly presented this summer and still have money in your pocket for those all important cocktails!
