Ultimate Summer Guide: Skin

Summer has certainly pushed rainy days out of the way and finally taken an overdue centre stage. The sun sizzles over London and I love relaxing with a 99 and a picnic blanket, soaking up the rays.
However, prepping for the season and maintaining the glamorous beach look isn't easy. 
So as the temperatures soar, I thought it would be a good idea to create the 'Ultimate Summer Guide' with tips and interviews from top experts and my personal favourite beauty products. 
Where else better to start than the part of the body that will be most exposed on our hot getaways: the skin.
Winter has dried it out, the invisible sun has left us looking like we've walked out of our coffins and those legs haven't seen the light of day since the opaque tights ripped on the way to work. A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to meet St Tropez's skin expert Jules Heptonstall and get the secrets just for you to great looking skin this summer. Check it out below.

Here are my favourite products for the skin to show off an amazing bikini body

As Jules stated in his interview a good scrub is essential. I love Rituals new Good luck scrub with thick exfoliating beads in sweet orange scent to rid of any dry areas and help reduce cellulite. It's a product I've become obsessed with and love to smooth the skin off with Laura Mercier's body souffle which as anyone who knows me, it's used everyday with a summer appropriate coconut smell. After laying in the sun for hours and realising I'm no darker than i was trekking through the snow in the winter, it's time to apply Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 week tan which assures me of a healthy glow for several days. For evening get togethers, I apply another layer for a deeper golden look and make sure I've applied a thin layer of St Tropez's gradual face tan to achieve the level of tan I want. Nars' Sheer Glow Foundation on the t-zone gets me ready for those hot summer days and nights and leaves my skin looking dewy and fresh.

Massive thanks to Jules, St Tropez and Red Consultancy for giving great advice and letting me share with everyone.
