4 Steps to a Summer Body Transformation with Skincare
Just because we’re already in the middle of summer doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of your gorgeous curves. If you dream of an unstoppable summer body, it’s not too late to start a skincare routine to get your curves looking their smoothest, tightest, and brightest.
Here are four steps to a summer body transformation — using beauty products only.
#1: Polish Your Curves
Reveal your glowiest butt and boobs by exfoliating them with a resurfacing body polish. Polishes are basically body scrubs that slough away dead skin cells to brighten, smooth, and tighten your skin. Two of our favorites are Acai Your Boobies Polish + Buns of Glowry Polish.
Acai Polish is a retexturizing formula made with retinol and acai berry to increase cell turnover, restore elasticity, and seal in moisture. This treatment has been clinically proven to improve skin tone and texture, smoothing out fine lines and stretch marks while leaving skin visibly brighter. It has also been proven to provide subtle lift and firming effects for a perkier pair.
Buns Polish is a resurfacing treatment made especially for your butt. Watermelon, vitamin E, and wheat protein work together in this formula to hydrate skin, plump out dimples, and lift your booty.
Use both products in your daily skincare regimen for a period of at least four weeks to see each formula’s full results.
#2: Shave Away the Fuzz
A smoother you is easily within reach. If you prefer to embrace your body hair, by all means keep it, enjoy it, and keep the razor out of reach. But if you like to stay smooth, upgrade your shave days by grabbing one of our Ultimate Coco Cloud Shave Kits.
This 3-step shave kit features a shaving cream, aftershave serum, moisturizer, razor, and cosmetics bag to keep you smooth, radiant, and vanilla-scented — on the go. Inspired by our bestselling Coco Cloud Shave Cream, this shaving set makes hair removal less blah, and more brilliant. Each formula is made with antioxidant-rich ingredients like coconut milk and argan oil to secure an ultra smooth shave sans irritation, hyperpigmentation, and ingrowns.
While it’s suitable for all skin types, it’s particularly beneficial for dry skin since it’s our most moisturizing shaving kit yet!
Wanna look your smoothest throughout the summer months? Look no further than Coco Cloud.
#3: Get Bronzed
While you can get a tan from sunbathing at the beach, unprotected sun exposure puts you at risk of sun damage which can lead to everything from fine lines to discoloration and even skin cancer. Yep, those UV rays are extremely damaging to the skin!
Try our Hotter in Person Self-Tan Lotion instead. This silky body cream is like a blur tool IRL. It’s made with hydrating jojoba oil, naturally bronzing DHA, and brightening strawberry with specks of gold shimmer to boost your skin’s radiance while delivering a subtle, even tan.
Besides leaving you sunkissed, Hotter In Person works to conceal blemishes and pigmentation for a bronzed and blurred effect. It’s way safer that exposing skin to UVA rays. Plus, it offers long-lasting results. Sunkissed, glowing skin...here we come!
Make sure you glow this summer by slathering your skin in moisturizing skincare products like our Best Buddies Whipped Body Butter. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, pineapple, algae, and sea kelp, this summertime staple absorbs UV rays, fights free radicals, and makes your daily SPF 30 work even harder. It also infuses skin with hydration, clearing the skin of excess oil and lessening the chance of breakouts.
One of its key ingredients — pineapple — is rich in vitamin C and E to brighten and even out skin tone. Plus, it contains enzymes that gently buff away dull, dead cells, leaving skin smooth and glowing. Aloe is also featured in the formula to cool and soothe irritated skin while delivering extra hydration. It really is a summer skincare essential for brightening your bod and maintaining clear, healthy skin.
HOW ELSE CAN YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN THIS SUMMER?
In addition to following the four steps above, you should also follow these tips for vibrant summer skin.
Wear Sunscreen Daily
To prevent sunburn and a slew of other unpleasant effects, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every single day before leaving the house — and remember to re-apply every two hours. Sun protection is essential, not just in a summer skincare routine, but all year round to maintain youthful, healthy skin.
Cleanse More Often
If you have oily skin or acne-prone skin, the hot weather can make your skin worse. Instead of cleansing just once a day, start washing your face twice a day, or whenever your skin gets super sweaty. Invest in a gentle cleanser, and always follow up with an oil-free moisturizer to prevent skin from producing even more oil — which will only end up clogging your pores and triggering more breakouts.
Apply a Vitamin C Serum Under Your SPF
Vitamin C is a powerhouse antioxidant that’s known for brightening, fading discoloration, and fending off free radicals. Layer it under your sunscreen to add an extra shield of defence against UV rays. All the dermatologists recommend it for daily use, as it can add so much to your skincare routine and save your skin from environmental aggressors.
Save Your Retinol Serums for the Evening
Retinol can leave skin sensitive to the sun. If you want to get the best results from your retinol products and prevent aggravating the heck out of your skin, apply them in the evening before going to bed.
Ready for your summer body transformation? All you need to do is follow the four steps above, and within a matter of weeks, you’ll be looking at your smoothest, brightest, most perkiest body. Like with any skincare routine, you need to be consistent if you want to see desirable results. If you stick to following these four steps, you could see results in as little as two weeks. However, make sure you give these products at least four weeks to experience their full effects.
