Summer time is the season when your body is most exposed. I personally love the summer. Nothing like the warmth of the sun on my skin! I absolutely despise winter. Being cold is not my thing. I love rocking dresses, shorts and skirts in the summer! (Actually, year long..I just throw on some cool tights in the colder weather. ) To keep my skin smooth all summer long here is what I do :
Body Scrub- I like to make an at home body scrub. It’s much cheaper than buying something at the store. What I do is mix sugar (I like to use white sugar because the grain isn’t as rough ), and a little olive oil. I rub that all over my body, really focusing on any rough spots! Ladies, don’t forget your arm pits!!! You can exfoliate there too! This scrub makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. I don’t do this every day. Just every once in a while. Over exfoliating isn’t good either!
Shaving- To de-fuzz the hair on my body ,I like to use a 4 blade razor and some good moisturizing shaving cream! Shaving after exfoliating makes my legs feel silky smooth! Don’t forget your armpits! Especially if you plan on wearing tanktops,etc. Exfoliating your armpits and shaving with a good razor will help prevent irritation which can cause dark marks on your armpits!
Body Wash- Since my skin is a little on the dry side I love using Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™ . This body wash really moisturizes my skin and makes it feel so soft!
Moisturizing – After my shower I like to moisturize with good ol’ extra virgin coconut oil. I use coconut oil for EVERYTHING. I use it on my body and hair. I even heard it has health benefits if you eat it! But seriously coconut oil is amazing! I like to slather some of my feet, put on a pair of socks and go to sleep. When I wake up my feet are nice and soft!
Under Arms- For my armpits I like to use Dove Clear Tone™ Sheer Touch Deodorant. This deodorant helps to visibly reduce dark marks and even tone with regular use over time. It also provides odor and wetness protection. And best of all no nasty stains on your clothing!
This is my little regimen to keep my skin silky smooth and ready to bare in the summer time. What’s your summer time dare to bare regimen?
