Happy Summer! It’s official here! I’m very excited because I’m totally prepared for some lovely hot weather. I’m happy the sun is out and the birds are singing. So very excited for nice warm weather and sunshine on the skin. Natural vitamin D is so wonderful but I always like to use sunscreen on my children and my self. I’m going to share a few tips and products with you that I use to get my skin summer ready. I hope you share your summer get ready tips and skincare in the comments. Would love to hear your thoughts and ideas. First thing I will tell you is stay hydrated! Drink lots of water!
The first thing I like to do the day before I use gradual self tanners is get rid of all the body hair. The products that I use are *AVON’s Skin so Soft Fresh & Smooth Hair removal creams. It take 2 min only. Pretty amazing and it is perfect for sensitive skin.

I also like using NAIR hair removing cream for the upper lip and I’ve just tried the *Nair Legs and body hair remover with grape seed. With this formula it takes a little longer for the hair to be removed but works really great. Just a reminder when using these hair removing products please make sure to do a patch test before using. It is important you follow the instructions that are on the package.
The new Nair Nourish Creme for Legs & Body is a swirl formula with Grape Seed Oil plus antioxidant Rich Resveratrol. It removes hair as a little as three minutes while moisturizing to restore skin’s youthful glow leaving you with moisturized, hair-free skin for days longer than shaving. Giving you maximum smoothness with minimum hassle, the Nair Nourish Creme Hair remover is an easy, mess-free formula that works, giving you the results you want in minutes. Easy to use, the formula removes hair below the skin’s surface while caring for your skin with natural beauty ingredients. It also works on very short hair. Results that last longer than shaving. It leaves skin smooth and radiant. I use this formula for my legs, body and underarms. Affordable and convenient. SRP:$9.96-$12.99
I recently bought gloves to exfoliate my skin. I purchased them from Shoppers Drug Mart. I like to exfoliate my body because I use a gradual self tanner and the self tanner goes on more evenly and smoothly if I exfoliate. I love using AVON Skin So Soft Satin Glow Skin Illuminator and body gel moisturizer. I also love my CLARINS Self Tanning Milky-Lotion.
I’m thinking of buying ST. Tropez because I’ve heard a lot of great things about it. What self tanners do you use? I’ve also heard lovely things about Bondi Sands Everyday Liquid Gold. Have you ever tried Bondi Sands?
So along with the gloves to exfoliate I love to use AVON Planet SPA Heavenly hydration Body Scrub, body cream and dry oil body spray. This trio is so incredible! After I exfoliate the legs I make sure to hydrate them before putting on the self tanner. This step of hydrating the skin will help with an even distribution of colour and smooth coverage.
The lovely Trio that I’ve been enjoying is *AVON PLANET SPA Heavenly Hydration with Mediterranean Olive Oil. This Trio has ultra moisturizing olive oil and a refreshing scent of crisp greens and sandalwood. The Body Scrub is invigorating and leaves skin feeling energized, 200ml for $12.00. The Dry Oil Body Spray absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling velvety smooth, 150ml $12.00. The Body Cream is very moisturizing and has lovely beads that are infused with olive oil which leaves skin silky soft. It is non greasy and feels so lovely on the skin, 200ml $12.00. Available as of July 2017, through Avon Independent Sales Representatives, 1-800-265-AVON or online at http://www.avon.ca
After exfoliating and hydrating my skin I apply the self tanners really well and wash my hands. I only use the self tanners two times a week. I haven’t tried using them more then that and I’ve never used it on my face. I know St. Tropez has face masks that give a really nice glow to the face and I really want to get my hands on those. Have you tried using a tanner on the face? Should you? Please let me know.
I always put my self tanners on at night because first thing in the morning I put on sunscreen. I’m obsessed with sunscreen and I will not leave the house without it. I’ve been really enjoying *Coppertone Clearly Sheer Spray for my arms and legs. It has SPF 50, broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It is light weight sunscreen formula feels weightless on the skin, it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. It is clinically tested on acne prone skin. It is moisturizing formula helps keep skin smooth and soft. It is appropriate to use on sensitive skin and is very light and fresh clean scent. It is water resistant for 80 minutes.
I kindly received a Shisiedo Influenster box with Free Samples to try and I’m LOVING everything! The box came with *Shiseido 50+ Wet Force BB. It is Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ and its for the face. It is water resistant for 80 Minutes. I love it so much. It is not oily. It gives a soft matte finish and I absolutely love it. It feels incredible and light. I also received the *Shiseido Urban Environment Cream with SPF 40 for the face and body. I love it! It is a bit thicker and creamy in consistency but it absorbs so nicely on the skin.
Really incredible formulas. Shiseido is incredible when it comes to sunscreen and skincare. I also received *Shiseido Ultimate Cleansing Oil! It is amazing and very hydrating, I love how it dissolves when I wash it off with water and it leaves my skin feeling so good and hydrated. Thank you so much to Influenster Canada for the incredible free samples. They are truly wonderful! Would you like to review and receive products from influenster? Join!
