If you haven’t been blessed with a darker skin tone, you’re probably eyeing up which fake tan will give you the most natural, streak-free colour. Remember, prep is just as important as your product. Get into the habit of exfoliating your body, and always use a moisturiser on dry areas, such as your elbows, knees and feet, before applying fake tan.
Booking facials and experimenting with new skincare products should be reserved for several weeks before the big occassion. The better your complexion, the less makeup you’ll want to wear, which is ideal for when summer finally rolls around. Incorporate an exfoliator and serum into your routine for blemish-free radiance.
Start preparing your hair for warmer weather with a trim to get rid of any damaged ends, then use a weekly mask to nourish and strengthen. With holidays and festivals on their way, the ideal 'do is low maintence and needs minimal heat styling. Think beachy waves.
Summer makeup is often lighter and more natural, but well-defined eyebrows will always frame your face and pull your look together. Get your brows shaped professionally and experiment with filling them in. When then sun is finally out, make sure to use a waterproof formula or a clear gel.
