Summer Skin Rituals
Whether you are jetting off to a tropical climate or enjoying the odd week of Scottish sunshine, summer is the most important time to take care of your skin.
Exposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause permanent damage to your skin and can also leave it feeling dry, sore and itchy.
We know you don’t want anything to stop you enjoying the summer months that’s why we’ve put together a list of must do summer skin rituals and top products to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
Drive Away Dry Skin
Soft skin is key for when we show off an extra bit of skin in the warmer months, so it’s important to exfoliate regularly. As body scrubs go, this one is a little rougher than normal, that’s due to the coffee beans that help to scrub away dry, dead or flakey skin.
