Summer Beauty Prep
OK, here's the thing. I live in Dubai. And in Dubai, our summers get pretty brutal. Like 'sandstorms all over the place, 45/113 degree heat and 80% humidity' brutal. Summer in Dubai does have it's pros; most people leave the city, which means rush hour is less of a drag and the stores are less likely to sell out of items on your list.
This summer, I'm one of the people leaving the city. I'll be hitting up Europe for a few weeks, and I can't wait. Being the major planner that I am, I started prepping for my trip a while ago, and I thought I'd share some of my favorite summer beauty prep products!
the Body Shop also makes some really good ones with a longer handle for easier use.
The best time to use your body brush is right before you hop into the shower. Lightly brush your skin in long strokes towards your heart to increase circulation and help drain toxins. Lots of people (myself included) swear by body brushing's ability to minimize cellulite. Whether or not this works for everyone, pretty much everyone will love the super smooth, just-back-from the spa soft skin that you get with body brushing.
Halima raved about the pads and I had to give them a go. I don't use them every day because I'm on prescription retinoids, but once I was able to add them back into my routine (usually twice a week), OH BOY. Sometimes, I actually wake up in the morning and stare at my skin for a while. It's smooth, even and so soft that I have to remind myself not to stroke my face in public. Order them here.
