Beach Body Beautiful – Let’s get ready for Summer!

Ok Ok…so we may all still be wearing our gloves and scarves as the bitter Siberian winds continue to blow, but as we are on the cusp of the third month of the year, it may be time to start thinking about that summer holiday and getting yourself beach ready!! It might just be the right time to book that to Miami, Jamaica, the Maldives…or wherever your imagination has been taking you of late!

During the warmer months when the bright, sun affects us the most, using the right skincare products is a must.
Protecting your skin in the summer is essential, especially when it comes to that gorgeous face of yours – and sunscreen is must! Those who suffer from hyperpigmention will find that the UV rays will worsen the condition, so use a quality sunscreen with a factor of at least 30. Finding sun protection that does not leave a white film on darker skin tones can be a challenge but a spray can be the perfect solution! The lighter formula is absorbed into the skin and disappears in an instant.


If you desire a warm glow before you jet off to sunnier climes, there is a beauty brand made by a woman of colour for women of colour.
The Karamel & Brown range created by British entrepreneur Cheryl Effiom, provides sunless beauty solutions for Black, Asian and Mixed Heritage skin tones.

We all want to look our best in that swimming costume and Marks and Spencer have swimwear to suit all tastes. If you need a little help in the ‘tummy’ zone, this tropical print costume should do the trick!
