…USE UP OLD SKIN­CARE

Tinted mois­turis­ers are still the lighter ob­vi­ous way to go for sum­mery skin, but choose one with an SPF too

Woman & Home - - BEAUTY KNOW-HOW -

GIVE YOUR­SELF A FOO’CIAL: A FOOT FA­CIAL, ONCE A WEEK THROUGH­OUT SUM­MER, AS EVEN THE PRET­TI­EST SAN­DALS WON’T HIDE CALLOUSED FEET OR UN­KEMPT TOES. HOARD ANY OLD SKIN­CARE YOU NEVER LOVED FOR YOUR FACE: YOUR FEET WILL ADORE IT.

AL­WAYS SOFTEN HARD SKIN BY BUFFING WITH A METAL FOOT FILE WHILE SKIN’S DRY (IF YOU DO IT WHEN THEY’RE WET YOU’LL

ONLY TAKE OFF MORE DEAD SKIN THAN YOU SHOULD AND CAN MAKE THEM SEN­SI­TIVE).

NEXT, MAS­SAGE IN A SCRUB (FACE OR BODY), PAY­ING PAR­TIC­U­LAR AT­TEN­TION TO CU­TI­CLES, HEELS, AN­KLES AND THE BALLS OF THE FEET. RINSE OR WIPE OFF WITH A DAMP TOWEL.

LAYER UP SKIN WITH NOUR­ISH­ING SERUMS, THEN AN OIL, THEN MAYBE A RICH CREAM. PAY PAR­TIC­U­LAR AT­TEN­TION TO

ANY DRY SKIN AR­EAS AND THE CU­TI­CLES.

PULL ON A PAIR OF OLD SOCKS AND

PUT YOUR FEET UP (OR DO YOUR NAILS); RE­MOVE AF­TER 20 MIN­UTES, WIPE A

LIT­TLE NAIL POL­ISH RE­MOVER OVER YOUR TOE­NAILS TO RE­MOVE ANY GREASE

BE­FORE AP­PLY­ING A COU­PLE OF COATS

OF A FAVOURITE LONG-WEAR POL­ISH. IDEAL THROUGH HOT SUM­MER DAYS AND NIGHT, I LOVE THE EASE OF OPI In­fi­nite Shine Gel Ef­fects Main­tain­ing My Sand-ity Nail Pol­ish, £13.95, THAT, WITH THE EX­TRA, SU­PER TOUGH TOPCOAT, IS A SE­RI­OUS STYLISH VA­CA­TION NUDE THAT LASTS THE LENGTH OF YOUR BREAK, WITH­OUT DRY­ING NAILS OUT.
