How To Get Your Skin Ready For The Big Summer Reveal!

{Collaborative post}The temperature is rising but the sun isn't getting low. It's summertime, which means it's time for the big reveal. You're about to show more skin for the next couple of months, and you don't want to get any nasty looks or sideways glances. Ladies around the world have been there and it isn't pleasant.

Getting your skin summer-ready sounds like a hassle, yet it doesn't have to be. Forget constant shaving and waxing because these tips are going to take the stress out of wearing shorts and summer dresses. Anxiety be gone!

Here's what you need to remember when the mercury is off the charts.

Not All Cosmetic Surgery Is Created Equally

Cosmetic surgery? You? Never! It's tempting to feel this way because of the horror stories you hear and see involving lip fillers and Botox. However, laser hair removal is a different animal altogether. According to Skin Perfection London, it has almost no side-effects, is safe and has little downtime. So, you'll be ready for the summer in no time whatsoever. More importantly, your skin won't have any access hair and there is no need to shave or wax regularly. If you think a laser is risky, wait until you see the red blotches a razor leaves on your arms and legs!

Your Throat Isn't The Only One That Gets Thirsty

Your skin gets thirsty too, and you need to top it up with moisture regularly. Otherwise, it will crack and dry up and you won't be able to get it out of your head. After all, it's the season of shoulderless tops and midi skirts. The key is to lock in the moisture with your morning and nighttime routine. That way, your skin won't get dry when the sun is at its hottest. Please don't over-moisturise though as then it will look greasy. A bonus - moisturiser helps you keep your tan for longer.

Tanning Starts In Spring

When we are tan, we look and feel our best. Still, there's no reason to wait until summer to start your base tan. What happens when there is the inevitable break in the weather during April and March? You don't want to get caught out, which is why you should gradually build your tan in the early blooms of spring. Aside from having the smooth brownness being eye-catching, it stops you from overegging the pudding. Sorry, but nobody should be the sunbed queen whose skin looks fake and tacky.

Manis And Pedis Are Non-Negotiable

Everyone has been on public transport when a guy gets on wearing flip-flops sporting crusty feet. It's disgusting and you don't want people to move on the tube because you're feet are stuck in winter. A mani/pedi is the perfect solution as it removes the excess skin and leaves the nails shining. If you can't get to a salon, you should use chip-resistant polishes to avoid having to reapply every couple of days. Come on - we all get lazy and don't stick to our routines, so why deny it?!

What are the secrets that help you get your skin summer-ready?
