Summer Beauty Prep

Wow - how fabulous has the weather been recently? Yes it's been a little on and off but when the sun is out it has been gorgeous and it definitely made me glad that I have already starting my summer prepping for this year!

Yup - I have started to add in a few extra products into my daily routine to help prepare myself for the heat and dreaded skin showing of the year! (Yes I dread it..... but I'm working on my body confidence!)
So I thought I'd share with you guys some of the products I've been using to try and get myself in tip toe (ish) condition for summer!
1. Nivea Good-bye Cellulite Gel-Cream
No-one likes cellulite, no-one at all! So if there's a product out there telling me it can improve those wobbley bits of mine.... I'm going to try it! I've only been using this for a week so far so I mean I don't look like Jessica Alba yet but it feels lovely and I'm definitely going to keep track to see if there's a difference by the time I'm getting into my shorts!

2. Ameliorate Body Lotion*
This has been a life saver - a cure for 'chicken skin'! Yes those bumpy red lumps on the backs of my arms which ruin my life.... this body lotion has actually started to reduce them, *cries with happiness*! I just need to keep remembering to slap it on twice a day! I will have toned, even arms by summer and won't be conscious of being in a tank top at the gym anymore! 

3. Vita Coco Coconut Oil*
HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT - the stuff of dreams. You can literally use it for anything.... my favourite use being for my hair. (which I've actually done for years... before it was cool!)
I'm currently waiting to get my hair re-done... 3rd June cannot come quick enough.... and this is the perfect weekly treatment to ensure my hair is still feeling soft and smooth. 
I normally cover my hair root to tip in this stuff either in the morning when I know I'm going to be at home all day or before I head to bed - then 8ish hours later wash it off. Try it ... you won't regret it! I have to say aswell Vita Coco has got to be the best coconut oil I've used so far.
I've also just started using this for baking which is so much fun!

4. Bio Oil*
Well.... if it's good enough for Kim K? It's good enough for little old me!
I've been trying to use this on my skin as much as possible over the last couple of months, I have numerous stretch marks which I won't lie... I HATE - the downfalls of being fat and then loosing weight. 
For years they made me SO conscious and I wouldn't get my legs out, ever! Even in 30 degree heat I'd be there in my tights or leggings melting from the inside out - but over the last year or two I've slowly realised, it's actually only me that cares!
 No-one else notices but me, I shouldn't let me rule my wardrobe and what I feel comfortable wearing.

What have you been doing to get summer prepped? I know for a fact I need to start fake tanning soon.... this milk bottle legs aren't going to want to be seen by anyone!

  5. Bio oil is amazing i use it so much, especially good for dry skin during the colder months X

  6. Coconut oil is also brilliant as a cold sore preventer, my brother suffers badly with cold sores and he puts coconut oil on his lips every night before bed and he hasn't had a coldsore in months, he read up on it and apparently the lipids in it act as a barrier, bit of useless info for you ha ha but worth knowing if you ever get a cold sore :) I haven't tried it as a hair mask, my hair is super greasy and I worry it will be worse if I use it. Love Bio Oil too xx
