Take time to re­lax in the sun

Rutherglen Reformer - - Here Comes Summer -

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
