The sun is shining, and the lazy days of summer vacation are calling. No matter where you spend this summer, protecting your skin is a must. For some, summer means heading off to sandy beaches and tropical locations, but for others it’s a matter of enjoying the summer in the city, with all the good weather and heading to riverside, lake or any location with outdoor pool. No matter where you spend this summer, protecting, exfoliating and firming will make you bikini ready for this season.

Hit the summer looking your very best. Here are some summer beauty tips and products which are good for you and to say goodbye to dry and dull skin.
FIRST: Exfoliate your body-fully
We all know, summer can be disappointed when you realize that the damn cellulite turns out. The secrets are: eat a clean, alkaline, unprocessed diet. Drink pure water every day as the first thing you consume. If you don’t like your water straight up, you can drink the water with lemon juice or lemon slices. Don’t use refined salt (table salt), instead use Celtic sea salt or Himalayan crystal salt in small amount. Than skin brushing and massage also helps specifically target areas of cellulite. Keep running and exercising, therefore you not only helping stress relief and giving yourself an endorphin rush, you are also expelling toxins through your skin. Prepare your skin for the tan and remove the dead skin cells by scrubbing, so that your skin gets radiant and smooth before getting the tan.
NEXT: Firming & Moisturizing
Short pants, crop-tops, summer dresses and bikinis are my favorite pieces to wear in summer season. But when warmer weather comes, that quick application of hope in jar that kept our skin just moisturized enough, is suddenly not enough. Skin firming creams sound like a miracle or too-good-to-be-true, however water is crucial in preserving your skin elasticity. When you keep yourself hydrated, it comes out in your skin to tighten the loose skin and make it look glowing. One of the best ways to tighten loose skin after weight loss and even after your child birth is to apply the CELLULAR PERFORMANCE BODY FIRMING EMULSION, that softens and firms areas prone to slackness, including thighs, arms, hip and waist.
THAN: The Sunkissed Tan
A good reminder, limit your exposure to sun, hot and chlorinated water, as well as tanning booths or beds. The immediate danger of too much sun is sunburn! If you looked at sunburned skin under a strong microscope, you would see that the cells and blood vessels have been damaged. With repeated sun damage, the skin starts to look dry, wrinkled, discolored, and leathery. However, the sun’s most serious threat is that it is the major cause of skin cancer, which is now the most common of all cancers.
We all want that golden tan, and a healthy glow. CELLULAR PROTECTIVE CREAM FOR FACE which comes in three SPF versions, as well as CELLULAR PROTECTIVE CREAM FOR BODY SPF30 are creamy, water-resistant sunscreens that protects the body and the face from UVA and UVB radiation with no white residue, while addressing the signs of sun-aging.
To protect against skin cancer you need to be shielded against UVA and UVB. The sunscreen needs to be applied at the recommended rate (usually 2mg per cm squared), which is a lot, eventually every two hours and the most important thing is not to get sunburn.
In between, I love using the CELLULAR PROTECTIVE SPRAY FOR BODY SPF 15. It’s an easy-to-use sunscreen spray for even coverage on hard to reach areas. Also highly protective from UVA and UVB radiation, as well as the CELLULAR PROTECTIVE STICK SPF 30, a smooth, water-resistant, sunscreen stick that protects delicate skin like lips, nasal bridge, earlobes and the eye area.
Taking care of your skin after excessive sun exposure is incredibly important, as failing to do so could lead to long-lasting damage. However, if your first course of action after sustaining a sunburn is to immediately apply after-sun, then you may not be doing an adequate job.
Best way to protect your face is to use the SOOTHING AFTER SUN REPAIR MASK, a soothing gel mask that envelops sun-exposed skin, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate and hydrate. Alleviates dryness for a glowing and radiant complexion and the SOOTHING AFTER SUN REPAIR EMULSION. A smooth soothing emulsion that supports stressed skin that has been exposed to excess heat and ultraviolet rays. Alleviates dryness, while maintaining a bronzed and silky body.
To have that sun-kissed glow and to protect the skin from damage effects of the sun. SUN PROTECTIVE COMPACT SPF30 is a water-resistant, sun care foundation formulated with powder to cover pigmentation and dullness and deliver a beautifully even skin tone and it comes in 4 different shades.
