As you’ll know if you’ve read my Winter Growler Guide, I’m keen on getting seasonal grooming right. With that in mind, if you have a holiday booked this summer and you don’t feel beach ready and that’s important to you, don’t panic. There’s still time to perfect your look so that you ooze confidence whether you’re taking a splash in the ocean or hitting up the beach bar.

In this blog post, you’ll find three beauty tips that are guaranteed to make you feel fab just in time for your upcoming trip. The good news is, you can easily purchase the products you need to get gorgeous from online retailers. For example, you can order toiletries from HiHouse and have them delivered straight to your doorstep. 

  1. Prep Your Skin in Advance

So that you’re totally holiday ready, it’s important that you prep your skin – especially if you plan on strutting around in a bikini. Before you jet off to your destination, get rid of dry, flaky skin using an all over body exfoliator with a pair of scrubbing mitts. Each time you hop in the shower, gently rub your skin from top to toe, focusing on the areas that are particularly prone to dryness, such as your elbows, knees, ankles and heels.

Afterwards, use a rich moisturiser to hydrate your skin. Doing this in the run up to your holiday will ensure that you’re ready to strip down to your swimsuit when you arrive at the beach.

  1. Get your Beach Tan Off to the Best Possible Start

Sometimes, it can take a couple of days for the sun to work its magic on your skin, leaving you feeling a little pasty at the beginning of your holiday. So to get your tan off to the best possible start, and to give you the confidence boost you might need to feel your best on the beach, why not faux your glow? Fake tan is a great way to give yourself a little bit of colour, and it’s a much safer alternative to lying out in the sunshine.

There are a variety of different types of tan on offer, from tanning mousse, to gradual cream, to in-shower lotions. You could even treat yourself to a professional spray tan. The tanning product you use will determine how long before your holiday you should bronze up. For example, if you’re planning on using a gradual tanner, you may want to start using it in the weeks leading up to your trip, while a spray tan should be done a couple of days before to make sure it lasts you all holiday.

  1. Schedule in Enough Time for Hair Removal

There’s no doubt you’ll want to be fuzz-free for your beach holiday, so it’s essential that you schedule in enough time for your hair removal session before you leave. This is especially important if you plan on visiting a salon. It’s likely you’ll need to book an appointment, so make sure you give them plenty of notice. Leaving it to the last minute could mean that they’re unable to squeeze you in.

If you’re taking your hair removal matters into your own hands, it’s just as important that you time it right. For example, if you’re going to be using wax, you should allow your hairs to grow as long as possible for optimum results, so it might be a good idea to skip a few shaves in the run up to your holiday.

As long as you feel great, there’s nothing holding you back from having the holiday of a lifetime. If some extra preparation and grooming does that for you, these tips area good place to start.

Get a Car Service in Hotter Temperatures

Summer is fast approaching and that means that a certain amount of preparation is required. We need to stock up on sun cream, get the ice cream in, clean and check the barbecue and get a car service. If you’re planning on going anywhere this summer, be it simply the usual commute to work or a longer trip to enjoy summer fun you need to make sure that your car receives a service that will guarantee that it is safe and ready for transporting you where you need to go in hotter temperatures.

Cars, like most things, need a certain amount of looking after all year round. Drivers rarely forget to be winter ready; they pack blankets, check tyres, check their oil and water, make sure the heating is working and so on. Summer servicing doesn’t often receive the same enthusiasm, however, if you understand cars and how they work, you’ll be careful not to put off your summer essential maintenance!

A hotter weather car service ensures that you enjoy safe and comfortable motoring this summer and covers all of these points and more:

Keep Your Car Hydrated

Us humans are regularly told to make sure that we drink enough, especially in hot weather. This is just as important for your car. Making sure that fluids such as windshield washer fluid, coolant, oil and so on are topped up is essential all year and more frequently in prolonged high temperatures.

Tyre Pressure and Tyre Health

When the sun comes out we tend to spend more time on the road visiting friends and family, driving to the beach, enjoying road trips and outdoor pursuits. What you might not realise is that when the weather is hotter the air in your car tyres tends to expand. This can make it difficult to get a true reading of what your tyre pressure actually is unless you really do know what you’re doing.

As well as tyre pressure it is important to ensure that the tread on your tyres is legal and safe, something a car service would pick up on straight away.

During car servicing, oil and filter changes will be undertaken and you’ll be advised if your fuel filters or anything else needs to be replaced. Keeping on top of these aspects of car maintenance saves you money in the long term. So if you are wondering where to go, DAT Tyres have a car servicing garage here making it easy to get these important safety points checked before things go wrong.

An Effective Car Service Reduces Fuel Costs

How can a car service help with fuel costs? You naturally spend more time out and about over the summer as you take advantage of the better weather. This means you use more petrol. If your car isn’t serviced and isn’t kept in tip-top condition you may suffer from what is called poor fuel economy. Basically, your fuel isn’t going to go as far and your car isn’t going to work quite so well. Keeping on top of these aspects of car maintenance saves you money in the long term.

Make sure that you are ready for summer and that your car is too. There’s nothing like a breakdown or poor performance to ruin the holiday mood.
