Get your body summer-ready!

Summer is just around the corner, but are you ready to get those toes out and bare your legs? Winter clothing is great for hiding a multitude of sins but as the weather starts to warm up, it’s time to address those parts of our body which have been neglected in the cooler months, starting from the feet upwards.

 

Foot retreat

 

Warmer weather calls for jandals and strappy sandals. But if you want to put your best foot forward, you will need to give your feet some tender loving care. For the ultimate home therapy the ‘VOYA foot ritual’ is a good place to start.

 

 

Recharge the circulation of the lower limbs, starting with a VOYA’s sugar exfoliation Effervescence Body Scrub or ground walnut shell scrub Time to Shine, massaging your knees to the feet. Once you have finished exfoliating, gently rub Softly Does It hydrating body lotion into your skin for a soft, smooth finish.

 

Pedicure

 

Book yourself in for a pedicure. As well as dealing with dry skin, areas of hardness and cracked heels, a pedicure is also a handy way to keep your foot hygiene in check and to fight off any potential infections. Experts suggest moisturising your feet intensively post pedicure, as the skin on your feet can be ten times harder than that of the rest of your body, making it more difficult to absorb moisture. VOYA’s Effervescence Body Scrub is handy for helping keep any dead cells from building up on your newly polished feet.

Seaweed wrap

 

 

 

Experience the calmness of a full body wrap, complete with the healing power of seaweed when you go for an Organic Seaweed Leaf Body Wrap, now available at Spa at the Pullman. Unlike any other seaweed treatment, this truly amazing detoxifying therapy uses real organic seaweed leaves to scrub and wrap your body. Beginning with a bladderwrack body buff, this treatment detoxifies firms and softens the skin and is excellent in conjunction with a weight loss programme. The whole body is then covered in laminaria seaweed leaves for instant results, followed by an application massage of Softly Does It to nourish and soften.

 

Wax

 

 

 

Bare-leg weather is here so now is the time to get rid of any winter growth! Waxing will give your legs a lasting, silky-smooth finish. Post-wax, be sure to moisturise your skin every day with Softly Does It, as freshly exposed skin follicles have the potential to be susceptible to infection.

 

Spray tan

 

 

Post-winter skin will need a bit of a helping hand if you want a golden glow. If you are trying out a self-tan for the first time, you may feel more comfortable leaving it to a professional to avoid streaking or white lines. However, if you prefer a DIY approach here are some tips:

  • Wax 48 hours or shave 24 hours before to allow your skin’s pores to close.
  • Exfoliate with Time to Shine or Effervescence Nourishing Body Scrub before you tan.
  • Shower with an unscented shower gel 30 minutes before tanning.
  • Pre-moisturise areas of hard skin like heels and elbows to make it easier to remove from these tough spots later.

Now bring on the sunshine!
