If holidays seem already far away, the light sunkissed tan I still have reminds me of the relaxing (and not always relaxing- mummies will understand ;-)) time I had throughout the summer (aka school holidays). So, how do you care best for your skin after a whole summer of intense heat, swimming sessions and perhaps hectic diets?
Read below the simple and easy beauty tips to have a glowing skin in September!
1- Gently exfoliate
If you think exfoliation is too harsh or may remove your holiday tan, then you may think twice. In addition of smoothing the skin out by removing dead cells and impurities, exfoliation helps to uniformize the suntan while helping the skin to look fresh and glowing like a baby skin. Best is to use a gentle and non-abrasive scrub for the face and the body but make sure to not overuse it.

2- Generously moisturise
Slather your skin (and any dry areas) with a body cream will not only keep it hydrated and smooth but it will also strench your tan survival time. You need a cream that locks the moisture in the skin while naturally replenishing rough areas. For your face, opt for a cream or an oil that is able to quench your skin while supporting its natural functions.

Ellovi body butter
Weleda sensitive skin lotion
Madara Smart antioxidant cream
3- Daily protect
The sunny months of July and August may be gone, but that does not mean you need to forget suncare and UV sunscreens. September can still have his fair share of nice weather! Needless to say, the skin needs to remain healthy and protected against UV exposure and this is why you still need to use a suitable SPF cream.
