Exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells which helps to soften and smooth skin. Our Superfine Skin Polish £12.50 is gentle enough for every day use, ingredients such as beeswax, sweet almond and walnut leaves skin supple, smooth and conditioned.
Drink lots of water
Drinking plenty of water has endless health benefits, including keeping skin glowing! Drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day will keep skin hydrated, plump skin’s appearance, keep breakouts at bay and minimise the appearance that ageing has on the skin.
Eating superfoods such as kale, spinach and rocket, which are high in lysine, antioxidants and vitamin A, will help to improve the texture of your skin and leave it glowing. We’re seeing more and more superfoods added into beauty products thanks to their skin-enhancing properties. Try our Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion £15.00, which is supercharged with raspberry extract for anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing benefits.
Get your beauty sleep
They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing! We all know how important a good night’s sleep is for your physical and mental well-being, but it also helps with a glowing complexion as your body naturally boosts blood flow whilst you’re asleep.
However, sometimes we all need to remove the telltale signs of lack of sleep… our Self Tanning Night Moisture Mask £29.50 is beauty sleep in a bottle! The super nourishing cream contains Hyaluronic Acid for an intense moisture boost, sunflower seed for skin calming and protection, and apple extract to soften fine lines and wrinkles.
Snack on nuts
Nuts are packed full of essential fatty acids, protein and fibre – helping to promote all round good health and skin cell regeneration. As an added bonus, nuts like almonds, walnuts and brazil nuts contain Vitamin E which helps fight off acne-causing bacteria and also aids in skin repair.
Use nourishing oils
Feed your skin with nourishing oils to deeply hydrate and moisturise your face and body. Our Self Tanning Anti Age Serum £29.00 is formulated with rosehip oil for intense nourishment and and skin repair. The skin-loving oil also works wonders on fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
Moisturising is a super important step in every skincare routine.

Take your vitamins
A deficiency in certain vitamins can really show on your skin. Regular intake of vitamin A will keep skin firm and moist, vitamin B improves skin tone and redness, vitamin E helps to fight the signs of ageing, whilst vitamin C brightens skin and improves collagen production.
Drink green tea
Drinking green tea has long been consumed due to numerous proven health and beauty benefits. Green tea helps to flush toxins from the skin, improves skin elasticity, helps to heal skin blemishes and reduces inflammation.
Avoid super-hot baths
Sure, bathing in scorching-hot bath feels great when temperature drops, but such intense heat on your skin can break down barriers on the skin which in turn leads to stripping skins natural oils resulting in loss of moisture. Keep showers and baths to a medium warm to keep skin hydrated and to prolong your self tan!
