SUMMER-IZE YOUR SKIN: PART 1



Summerize….is that even a thing? Well, now it is - and it means preparing your scaly Winter skin to be seen by the public eye. I don't know about you, but my limbs have been in hibernation for quite some time at this point and I think that this may be the weekend to bring them out. I have to admit, my legs are in no condition to be seen sporting short-shorts or romping in a bikini, but there are some quick fixes that can be made to have them looking ready in a pinch…

In the shower I go, with my Lush 'Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub,' a sea salt and mimosa-infused light scrub that's not too abrasive - think of it as an exfoliating super-cleanser that softens and revives dull skin in no time at all. An added bonus is that it doesn't cover you with that thick water-resistant oily film (like scrubs tend to) after use that feels just plain unnatural.  To me, a film that doesn't allow your skin to absorb water droplets, certainly doesn't plan on letting a thick moisturizer in either, so this scrub is perfect. 

Post wash, enter my favorite moisturizers EVER; Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter and Lush Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion. Not only do these make your skin smell like a piece of pound cake with butter slathered all over it, but they make your skin feel baby soft. The Kiehl's cream is thick and rich, similar to the actual consistency of butter, and leaves a dewy feeling on your skin for some time after applying for a dose of super nourishment. On the other hand, the Lush offering is great when you want to slap on something soothing and run out the door without worrying about being left with greasy stains on your clothes post-rub down. My skin literally drinks up the Lush lotion so quickly and is left with a lingering slightly fruity vanilla scent (think; fresh vanilla bean yogurt with kiwi slices), but I like the Kiehl's for an intensive overnight treatment. 

Now that your dry skin has been whisked away and your favorite moisturizers saved the day, can you guess what's next? Check back tomorrow...
