Look fabulous all summer long

Don't forget a light mist of fragrance to lift your spirit! We love the Victoria's Secret summer fragrances. Here are two VS Angels on the Summer Bombshell Tour.Darlings, summer trends and fashions are fun – I adore them! But what really shows and glows in the sun is you! Pretty summer dresses, bare skin, and sexy summer sandals showcase pretty toes. So darlings, here are all the tips and products you need to glow with health and beauty and look fabulous all summer long!

Get a glow on
Make your skin look luscious. Gently exfoliate daily to keep skin soft and smooth. We love the freshness of Crabtree & Evelyn Citron, Honey & Coriander Smoothing Body Scrub.  Or, relax in a soothing skin-softening soak of spoon salts. Add two cups of the salts to your tub and add few drops of your favourite essential oil or perfume. If you like, you can make your own body scrub from brown sugar and olive oil. Just take a pretty jar and fill it with brown sugar and few drops of your favourite essential oil, then add one tablespoon of olive oil for every cup of brown sugar.
 
 
Sexy, pretty feet
Use a good foot scrub daily to keep feet looking soft and sexy. It’s perfect for removing city grime, if you wear sandals. Daily care will trump the fanciest pedicure.
 
A Ped-Egg or cheese grater-type of callus remover is easier and more effective than a pumice stone to remove stubborn calluses.
 
Exuviance Heel Repair is a miracle cream that uses high-strength alpha and Polyhydroxy acids with Vitamin E and rich oils to keep the driest heels moisturized and soft. 
 
If you feet are really bad, skip the salon and get a medical pedicure. A podiatrist or his assistant will shave off calluses and leave feet soothe. Your insurance may cover the procedure.
 
 
Freeman Bare Foot Creamy Pumice Foot Scrub, Peppermint & Plum, Invigorating costs about $3. It smells great and gets the job done. Sometimes I splurge on a fabulous foot masque or special scrub, but this inexpensive standby is a great choice for every day.
 
Follow this easy foot care régime and it will take you only minutes to file your nails and pop on a fresh coat of polish to show off pretty summer sandals.
 
Butter London Nail Lacquer Primrose Hill PicnicAll lacquered up
The hottest new nail lacquer is Butter London. It is formulated to be free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP. The colours are deep, reflective, and straight from the catwalk. Try a pop of hot pink or cool coral. Or spring for a collection of pales, such as “Baby’s Breath” or “Heavy Metal Trio” of metallics. After a winter in pretty a pales I have been living in Primrose Hill Picnic, a hot pink, and Jaffa, a pretty coral orange.
 
 
We also love the new liquid metallics from Nicole by OPI– Miss Independent is cool violet.
 
Banish cellulite
Cellulite is the bane of many women. It responds to diet and exercise, but not liposuction. There are new treatments available at the doctor’s office, but they are pricey and the jury is still out as to just how effective they really are. So cut out white processed foods, and eat healthy fat from nuts, nut oils, and fruits such as avocados — in small amounts. Keep your diet full of fresh fruit and vegetables, and lean protein.
 
Exercise! Yoga, barre classes and Pilates are fabulous for firming and smoothing trouble areas! Experts agree exercise makes your skin glow as it revs your circulation and strengthens your capillaries. Exercise is good for every little cell in your body. It is your best weapon against cellulite and ageing!
 
 
Try a cellulite cream after showering. Many women have had good results from Nivea Body Cellulite Smoothing Gel-Cream or Nivea Body Cellulite Smoothing Serum. The serum contains more of the active ingredients lotus exact and l-carnatine, so it is suppose to work faster. Know that even if you are thin, creams, and gels are useless with exercise and diet so get moving. To find a good workout:
 
 
Lumixyl --makes a great UVA -UVB  sun screen !Your gorgeous face
The best way to avoid lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and skin cancer is by using a good sunscreen every day. Preventing sun damage and premature photoaging is more effective and less expensive than trying to undo it.
 
There is evidence that non-chemical sunscreens containing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide may be better for your skin. This is the type of sunscreen I use on my face. The minerals reflect the sun away from the skin and prevent sun damage.
 
Whatever sunscreen you chose, be sure to reapply it frequently when you are outside. If your makeup or moisturizer has an SPF 15, you need additional protection of at least SPF 30. Remember, most window glass doesn’t protect you from sun damage, so use sunscreen inside when working by windows and when driving.
 
Do not forget to protect your hands and scalp. You will look decades younger and avoid life-threatening diseases, if you pay attention to sun protection.
 
Some favourite mineral sunscreens:
Lily B. SPF 30 Ultra Defense
Avène High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50
Lumixyl Moisturelock Sunscreen SPF30 
 
Be bronze!
Even pale girls like a bit of a glow. We love the range of bronzers and sunless tanners from Victoria’s Secret. Share the VS Angel’s makeup artist tips for sunless tanning:
 
 
We also swear by Jergen’s Natural Glow to get a stress-streak less glow or to maintain a pricey spray tan. It’s perfect for fixing strap marks too. And now they have added a firming complex too!
 
Bare legs are chic, but shimmering bare legs are chic and sexy. All you have to do is tune in to any talk show and you’ll see that all the celebrities have bare legs that positively gleam.
 
Fake Bake’s Golden Faux Glow – Shimmer and Golden Faux Glo – Bronze gives an instant golden bronze colour to your bare skin. The rich moisturizing formula won’t rub off, but will wash off when you want it to. So glow like a star because “shimmer” is this summer’s newest must-have accessory. 
Olay Daily Lotion with Shimmer is a pretty and inexpensive option. It leaves skin soft and with a pretty shimmer. http://www.olay.com/skin-care-products/body-lotion/daily-lotion-shimmer?pid=075609026485
