Your secret to summer skin

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

Happy Summer! The first day of November always makes me happy. It’s the first day after winter where I absolutely and without abandon throw myself into summer – morning runs on the beach, lunches on the promenade, lazy days on the beach, sunset cocktails, parties on the beach… (Can you tell I’m fond of the beach?)

And by 1 November I’ve exfoliated, self-tanned, epilated, bronzed, waxed, moisturised, de-fuzzed, mani’d and pedi’d my body in preparation for the looming party season.

But enough about me! We want to know YOUR secret to summer skin. Tell us on Twitter what your secret to summer skin is and you could win an uh-mazing summer hamper. Make sure you add the words @BeautySAfrica and #SummerSkinSecret to your tweet so we can find your secret.

Your secret to summer skin

In the hamper you’ll find a Yardley Oatmeal Brightening Scrub to start your day radiantly, as well as the limited edition Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant and Uriage SPF50 Sun Cream to protect your skin. Stay cool throughout the day with an Oh So Heavenly Silky Smooth antiperspirant and bright and breezy with Elizabeth Arden’s Green Tea Cherry Blossom fragrance. Sprayology’s Vitamin Oral Spray will give you your daily dose of vitamins while The Body Shop’s Satsuma Hand Cleanser Gel will keep the germs at bay. Firm up and smooth your body with Johnson’s Pure Tissue Oil and Nivea’s Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion, before using Fino’s Soothe lotion after that wax or shave. Unleash your inner bronzed goddess with Caribbean Tan’s Tan in a Can Self Tan, or if you prefer to head into the sun, do it safely with Bergasol’s Dry Oil SPF20 tan accelerator. If you’ve overdone it in the sun, try Lamelle’s Nourish Rescue Repair Gel. Settle down for the evening a Cettua My Bright Face Mate mask while soaking away the day with Oh So Heavenly’s Cape Rooibos & Baobab Oil Renewing Body Wash and Renewing Body Lotion.

Sjoe! What a hamper right?! So you better hurry to share your summer skin secrets; you only have until Tuesday 13 November before the competition ends.
