Beach Ready Beauty

Do you have a "getting ready for the beach" kind of beauty routine? I sure do. As a matter of fact, I just went through my routine last night after packing for our weekend in Bethany Beach. I like my skin to be silky smooth and with a base tan before I step outside in a bikini. I start with exfoliating to remove all the yucky dead skin cells and follow with waxing or shaving and then moisturizing. Easy peasey. It's so important to have smooth, glowing, and healthy skin to show off at the beach. To achieve this here are some tips I've learned to keep my skin glowing and silky smooth:

1. Exfoliate your skin every other day (or at least once a week!) to keep the skin from growing over the hair and causing ingrown hair problems and/or bumps.

2. If waxing, you want the hair to be about 1/4 inch long. If hair is longer, trim before your waxing session.

3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. There is no such thing as over moisturizing.

4. Use a sunless tanner (I use this one) to get that golden, sun-kissed glow without exposing your body to the real time sun rays that can cause wrinkles and painful sun burns.

5. Wear a lip balm with SPF while under the sun to avoid chapped, sunburned lips.

  1. Love the products you've selected. I don't use the same but very similar ones. :D Perfect for a beach day.


  2. I do use many of the same products you use. Have you tried Clarins gel-self tanner? It's been my go-to for years as I don't tan very well. Gtta try the Fresh moisturizer, would you say it's better for dry or oily skin?

    The only other thing besides the products you listed I pack to the beach is my Nars multiple in South Beach and alovera gel (I burn no matter what)

  3. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas.

    Have a wonderful day.


  4. Good day,,,,
    Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Cora L. Sanchez 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
