Summer is officially here and it is time to bare your skin! If you did not have time to prepare your skin on the body for a bikini, don't worry because you still have time... Maybe. I hope my advices will help you do that, because taking care of your skin on the body is just as important as taking care of the skin on your face. Apart from eating healthy, managing stress and exercising, it is essential to find products that actually do magic to your skin and not just promise to. I have always been a skincare junkie and I have been searching many years for the perfect cosmetics that would make my body look as smooth, silky and glowing as the models' in magazines, and this is what my years of research have brought me to.
It is especially important to exfoliate your skin during shower, as it removes the dead cells, results in a more even skin tone and helps you get rid of the ingrown hairs that we all hate. There are no words to describe how much I love all of Tata Harper products, but their scrub is something out of this world. Tata Harper's Smoothing Scrub that says "Spa Strength" actually gives you the same spa professional exfoliation at the comfort of your home as you would get in an expensive spa.

Dry brushing is another method to remove the dead skin cells and get rid of the ingrown hairs. It also promotes healthy circulation, softer and toned skin and reduces the appearance of the cellulite that well, almost all of us women have. Unless you are Emily Ratajkowski, then you probably don't. If you overdo it you risk hurting your skin so remember to be gentle when dry brushing. Believe me, you will feel like a whole new person stepping out of the shower after using this brush by Aromatherapy Associates, that I personally use every time I shower. It's probably going to be a bit painful the first few times, but the result is worth it. 

Last but not least, moisturising. It has to be done every single day, and I usually do it before I go to bed or after shower and it's always either my favourite Caudalie Divine multipurpose oil (which can also be used for hair, cuticles and as a bath oil) or an organic virgin coconut oil (which you can find pretty much anywhere and any brand will do). The Caudalie Divine oil contains grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan oils that nourish your skin leaving it smooth and glowing. It is really divine, and smells great. On the other hand, the organic virgin coconut oil is the most natural moisturiser there is, and it's naturally antibacterial and antifungal. It smells yummy and enhances your skin's smoothness, elasticity and appearance. So choose yourself, but both Caudalie Divine oil and coconut oil do absolute wonders to your skin.
