The summer season is teeming with pool parties, outdoor barbecues, holiday getaways, summer camps and more. It’s also when you see the most skin. From bathing suits to cute summer shorts, your skin will be on display – so why not show it some extra love? Check out our top summer tips, and you’ll learn all about shaving legs for summer and how to pamper your skin.
Get a good (and safe) tan.
Make sure you apply sunscreen before you let the sun do its work. Then keep an eye on the clock to ensure you get enough, but not too much sun. Take breaks throughout your tanning session and never fall asleep while tanning or you could end up with not-so-fun sunburn. If you have sensitive skin or are worried about the effects of the sun, you can always fake that summer glow. Grab a bottle of your favourite fake tan for a sunless solution.
Master the art of shaving.
Your beautiful curves need a pair of touchably smooth legs to match. Want to know how to shave legs properly? You’ll need warm water, a good, clean razor, and a can of moisturising shaving cream. At Venus®, we believe the best razor for women is one that is designed especially for women. Venus razors feature contouring blades to fit every one of your curves and an easy-to-grip handle to fit comfortably in your hand for a more controlled shave. Once you’ve chosen a razor, shaving legs is simple. Start by soaking your skin in warm water for two to three minutes. Then, lather up with a shaving cream for women to help hydrate your skin and give your razor a smooth glide. Rinse with cool water to close your pores, and voila! You’ve got soft, smooth legs that are ready to dive into summer. To learn more about how to shave, click here.
During the summer months, the weather can get really hot. Dehydration from the heat can affect your mind and body – and that includes your skin. Keep tabs on your water intake and drink several bottles of water a day to stay hydrated. Need more fluids? Gift yourself a cute reusable water bottle to inspire you to drink more water. By staying hydrated, you can help promote smooth legs, a quick metabolism, muscle health, and increased energy levels. You’ll need all of these things to have the best summer ever!
Don’t forget to moisturise.
Your skin can go through a lot in the summer months. Things like heat, chlorine, sunscreen and tanning lotions can leave your skin needing a little more TLC. Apply your favourite body lotion or oils frequently to help lock in moisture and keep your skin looking its best. The more you take care of your skin, the more it will take care of you!
