The mornings are brighter and the nights are definitely getting lighter, that can mean one thing….Summer is on its way! There’s nothing I love more than a stroll down the prom, a gentle breeze in my hair, the odd squawking of a very happy seagull and not a single jumper in sight. It doesn’t matter where we live, it feels like everything comes alive again during the summer. It’s hard to sit here thinking about the summer and not pop on my sunglasses, whip on my flip flops and start sipping on a Mojito, but one thing’s for sure, although my mind is all set for the summer….my body definitely isn’t.There’s definitely a few layers of old skin that needs to be scraped away with what only feels like can be achieved by investing in an industrial cheese grater, but luckily for me, and you, Temple Spa have a few little tips and tricks up their sleeve that will get your body looking beautiful for the summer.
1. Without a doubt, the first thing that has to go is the dried up, dead skin that’s accumulated whilst you have been in hibernation. The truth is the layer of skin that you can feel is already dead and until that’s gone, any moisturising or anti-ageing products you use on your body has to try and work its way down to your top of layer of skin. So give your dull, bumpy and rough skin the brush off! Giving It the Brush Off is a luxurious, natural body brush to help create your very own spa at home routine. Everyday dry skin brushing helps reduce cellulite and improves skin texture by increasing circulation. Body brushing not only exfoliates dead and dull skin cells from the skin, it effectively helps to remove toxins, improve skin tone, skin feel and skin texture. Body brushing will help you to feel energised, revived and radiant. Lightly body brush on dry skin to help exfoliate or in the shower to invigorate and energise.
2. You want people to look at you and see you radiating a healthy glow. Temple Spa’s Sugar Buff is a Mediterranean inspired sugar body scrub, including olive oil, fig and pomegranate to remove dead skin cells, encouraging cell renewal to reveal silky smooth, sun kissed skin. Scented with a blend of ten relaxing essential oils, your skin will feel calm and delicately fragranced too. Using this product helps to increase circulation, invigorates the skin, improves lymphatic flow to remove toxins and the ingredients has wonderful anti-ageing properties. It truly is the most amazing scrub ever!
3. Once you’ve prepared your skin you need to treat your body with a little bit of kindness and we have the perfect product. Body Truffle offers you a total body rejuvenation. With powerful anti-ageing ingredients it helps to firm and smooth your skin whilst boosting collagen. Body Truffle diminishes the appearance of tired, dull and dry skin and encourages cell regeneration. We all need a little helping hand at time, especially as we get older. Body Truffle gives you a wonderful youthful glow (do they delivery by the truck load) and it’s not surprising Black Truffles, Rose Quartz, Cashmere, Cocoa Butter, Champagne extra and Gold and silk actives are but a few of the incredible anti-ageing ingredients.
4. So your skin is looking at its best, but that doesn’t change the fact it hasn’t really seen the light of day since last summer. We all dread the moment we finally get the courage to wear a summer dress or put on a pair of shorts for the first time. So why not give yourself a little extra tan (we promise not to tell anyone). Sol Mate is the most believable faux tan ever, it cleverly combines serious skincare properties with a healthy sunless tan. Its high quality formula is hydrating to the skin, and rich in natural extracts and essential oils that not only beautifully fragrance it, but treat the skin with anti-ageing benefits. It gives a natural, buildable tan without the risk of streaking, blotches or uneven tone. Plus it can be reapplied every other day to keep the colour longer or deepen the tone. For some of us, we’ve just had too many bad tan experiences in the past where we have walked around looking like an Oompalumpa and have needed therapy to come to terms with the trauma, so maybe Lovely Day is the answer for you. Lovely Day provides an instant, golden tan glow that can be used on both the face and body. With its unique layering ability you can obtain your desired colour level with ease, a tint or a tan, it’s up to you and can rinse it off at the end of the night. It’s easy to apply, great for all skin types and unisex too.
So the summer is on its way, we can’t stop that happening but hopefully you feel equipped to get yourself and your skin in the best condition. Lavish yourself with our anti-ageing products so you are the best version of your youthful self and for more information about the other anti-ageing products we have, have a little look here.
