Take time to relax in the sun
During the summer months our bodies are more exposed than normal.
If you are horrified at how you look when you peel off those layers of clothes then book a visit to one of the many beauty experts in Lanarkshire who will quickly help you feel more glamorous with their fabulous range of pampering, and relaxing, treatments.
A facial, or better still a body scrub, will slough away those dead skin cells and leave you naturally glowing.
There are too many beneficial, and increasingly hi-tech, beauty treatments available these days to fully list here – many of which can be tailored for the individual.
If you are looking a bit ‘peely-wally’ try a tanning spray for a healthy glow for these early summer months before you achieve your natural tan.
Never forget to apply protective sun screen and moisturise your skin appropriately on a day-to-day basis during the summer and especially before and after sun-bathing.
As part of your summer beauty règime don’t neglect your hands and nails.
And remember to care for your feet, which have long been hidden in trainers or boots.
Visit a chiropodist and then have a pedicure to get your feet ready for sandal exposure.
Or for that special occasion, how about indulging in some Nail Art for a more eyecatching look for your nails on both hands and feet.
If your hair looks wild and unkempt and hasn’t got a flattering style it can really be ageing – and yes, we do mean the men out there too.
It simply pays to visit your hairdresser every few weeks for that vital trim or re-style.
And if you feel a bit lumpy in a t-shirt then do something about it and join an exercise class.
Here comes summer – and it’s going to be a cracker.
It’s time to enjoy lighter and longer days and look forward to a wellearned summer holiday.
Whether you intend to have a stay-cation or vacation this year, it doesn’t really matter.
When work is done, or on your days off, summer months are a time to generally relax a little more, finally shed those layers of winter clothing, and enjoy some sunshine.
We sincerely hope the good weather arrives soon, especially after our wet and dreary winter.
It’s fingers firmly crossed, as it’s so much easier to keep the kids amused when the sun is shining.
For when the weather is good it makes a huge difference to the way we can live and the number of outdoor activities we can all enjoy.
Yes, of course, you can go walking or biking in the rain and cold but any outdoor activity is so much nicer in the sunshine and warmth of a balmy summer’s day when you are out with family or friends.
After the long winter months another highly pleasurable summer activity is to simply spend some time relaxing in your garden or enjoying a barbecue when the weather is set fair. Or how about enjoying a picnic. If you are venturing out for the day remember to pack your food and drink in either a picnic basket or cool bag and don’t forget to include ice packs to help keep things cold.
A large blanket, picnic rug, or folding chairs make things comfortable, and you might like to take some wipes for those sticky fingers.
Sunscreen protection is vital too and don’t forget to pack sun hats for all the family.
For the kids – or kids at heart – take a beach ball, sand pails and shovels, ball and bat, or a frisbee.
Above all, relax, lie back, and enjoy the season.
Summer fun Light nights and better weather mean its time to enjoy the outdoors
