With holidays and staycations looming and the call of beach and pool beckoning its time to blitz those beauty blind spots.

Body Brushing

For an extra clean feel brush your body every day before showering or bathing. This helps slough off dead skin cells and other forms of surface dirt and is also thought to be effective in the battle against cellulite because it boosts the lymphatic drainage system into action, breaking down toxins that have become trapped in fat cells.


Get into the habit of using a gentle exfoliating body scrub or cream twice or three times a week. This helps slough off dead skin cells and gives the skin a finer texture and boosts sluggish circulation. Exfoliation softens those areas such as heels, knees, elbows which are prone to dry skin and also enhances the softening effects of moisturizers and body oils. Remember its  essential to exfoliate before using any fake tan product.

Try Fenty Skin’s Brand New Buff Ryder, Exfoliating Body Scrub. A tropical inspired body scrub that refines and renews skin. Buff Ryder smooths and exfoliates with a gentle and effective blend of sugar, salt and actual superfine sand and is packed with decadent tropical oils for a nourishing touch

Dry Oils used after a bath or shower will enhance the softness of your skin and prevent against de-hydration. Dry Oils are light and pleasant to use and non greasy. They are useful to use before going to bed if you have been out in the sun or after a shower. Let them dry before applying sunscreen.
