We all know that feeling when the sun comes out unexpectedly or you have a last-minute summer invite and you have to get your legs and limbs out. SHOCK HORROR! They're furry (girls!), dry, pale and resemble milk bottles. Or perhaps you’re never been the sun worshipping type, even if your skin says you are, and you want the turn your pale, protected skin bronzed and beautiful the safe way, at Temple Spa we’ve got this covered with our quick 5 summer skincare steps.
Step 1: De-fuzz
(Men skip to step 2. Unless you are riding in the Tour de France or do like to shave your legs) Shave any or all unwanted fur. STUBBLE TROUBLE soothing shaving gel is a great little secret of ours in a diddy 50ml tube that’s perfect to pack away for your travels too. Shaving and skincare in one, it’s a plant-based, super rich shave-gel that lets you (men who’ve read on you can use this for your chin too!) razor glide through stubble, no trouble. With herbal extracts of rosemary and aloe vera reduce skin irritation and a reviving blend of Mediterranean essential oils of lemon, patchouli, lavender, bergamot, juniper, basil, lime, thyme and cardamom it leaves skin super smooth, comfortable and ready for transformation.
Step 2: Polish
Next refurb your skin all over with our SUGAR BUFF award-winning body scrub (Trinny Woodall is a fan). A really delicious luxury body scrub that turns dry and rough skin, soft and radiant with a healthy glow. Full of Mediterranean goodness from olive and grape seed oil, vitamin E, fig and pomegranate extracts and an aroma of lavender, patchouli, clove, grapefruit, eucalyptus and rosemary. Mmmmm… really does the job of transforming your skin whilst uplifting the spirits too.
On wet skin start at the ankles and work upwards towards the heart to get your circulation moving. Pay attention to joints also, elbows, knees and shoulders to encourage lymph drainage too, which in turn helps the skin look more radiant and healthy and of course less dry and wrinkly too. Rinse well and you’ll notice a lovely sheen and silky feel left on the skin. Pat skin dry with a towel.
Step 3: Moisturise
Follow with a very light layer of PEACE BE STILL our soothing skin balm. This amazing calming body moisturiser is unbelievably light and will give your pale limbs a hydrating boost. Perfect to moisturise during all this hot summer weather.
