Top tips for getting summer ready

Health and beauty expert Louise Elliott from thespa at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House gives tips on how to look great and feel confident this summer.

-It’s amazing what a good manicure and pedicure can do! Tidying up nails and toes and adding a bright summery polish will help you feel more confident and look great in your summer sandals. Gel treatments use a semi-permanent polish which can last up to three weeks – perfect for your holidays! This summer pastels, holographics and metallics will all look fab.   

- Skincare is hugely important all year round and summer is no exception. Exfoliating and moisturising is key and it’s vital to always protect your skin with sunscreen. For the perfect glowing skin specialist body wraps are great at smoothing the appearance of cellulite and firming up wobbly bits. Our Lumafirm wrap and Body Sculpting wrap will both leave you feeling radiant and more toned.

¬- Hair removal in summertime can turn into a full time job so longer lasting methods such as waxing and IPL can save you time and give great results. It’s important, however to protect those areas which can sometimes be affected by rashes, pimples, bumps and ingrown hairs. Tips to help avoid irritation from hair removal include making sure your skin is warm and to always leave at least a few days between hair removal to give your skin a chance to calm down. After waxing or shaving make sure the area is completely dry and then massage in some coconut oil or tea tree oil, which will repair the delicate skin.

-A good tan will give you an added glow and can even help you look slimmer. Regularly using a gradual tan moisturiser gives a subtle colour and shimmer or you could go for a light professional spray tan.
