Have you had a few sleepless nights of late? Has your skin taken exception to the plunging temperatures? Are you looking and feeling a little worse for wear? From time to time, we all have days when we’re we’re running on empty. Unfortunately, our skin can often give our secrets away. Are you familiar with dark circles, bags, and a dull, dry complexion? If so, it’s time to get these skin saviours in your life. You’ll look and feel better in no time at all!
Most of us feel more confident when we’ve got a bit of colour in our cheeks. A golden glow can make you look and feel younger, healthier and more attractive. Sadly, in the UK, we’re not blessed with the best weather and tans tend to fade quickly. The good news is that we can rely on fake tan to give us a faux glow. Not only does this mean we can enjoy bright, beautiful skin all year round. It also enables us to tan safely without putting our skin at risk.
If you’re new to tanning, there are a few basic rules to follow. Exfoliate before you tan, and always apply using a mitt. Put a small amount of moisturiser on your hands, feet, knees, and elbows before you tan. This will help to prevent tan from sticking in these areas. Use fluid circular motions, and follow the instructions to get an idea of how much product to use. There are hundreds of different lotions and potions on offer. Read some reviews online, and try some for size. It may be that it takes you a few test runs to find a product that is perfect for you.
Is your skin feeling dry and flaky? Does your complexion lack vitality? If so, your skin may be in need of some TLC. The elements, tiredness, and stress can take their toll on your skin, so it’s good to have an indulgent treat now and again. Face masks come in many different forms, and you can choose products to suit your skin type. If you have dry skin, try hydrating creams, which nourish your skin and give you a radiant glow. If your skin looks tired, go for a revitalising mask, which will make you feel human again. If you have sensitive skin, try and avoid perfumed products. Natural lotions may be a better option. Check out brands like Tropic Skincare for ideas.
Exfoliating scrubs are a miracle cure for tired skin. The aim of these products is to remove dead cells and unveil a brand new layer of skin cells. Your skin will feel smoother, and look much brighter and clearer.
It can be tricky to hide the signs of a late night or a stressful week at work. Thankfully, there are some skin saviours out there. Take care to nourish and protect your skin, and invest in some high-quality skincare products. It’s amazing the difference a little TLC can make.
