We hear it all the time but do we actually do it? Invest in a good quality face cream this season designed for your skin type and use daily, especially before bed. Not only does it promote hydration and skin cell regeneration but is essential for skin repair. This counts for hands and feet too, slather on a rich body cream for these areas to combat dryness.

Dead skin cells form on top of the skin quickly and, if not removed, results in a dull, flaky complexion. Not a good look. Shift these for fresh new skin with a cream based exfoliater.

Exfoliating is excellent prior to tanning too as it prolongs your tan and avoids flaky patches on the skin – perfect for all your parties this season!
