The countdown is on…
The flights are booked, the new bikini is waiting in your chest of drawers, and you’ve read every guidebook known to man on your chosen destination. It’s officially holiday season –and with that comes barrels of excitement and even more pre-holiday beauty prep. But what to do – and when should you be doing it?
We’ve got the summer holiday body countdown clock to guide you through…
1 month before: You’re ramping up that fitness regimen. No more missed classes. No leaving your trainer to flex his biceps while you press the snooze button. You’re working out with intent in the weeks before your holiday. So arm yourself with our new Gym Kit Collection for Her – your fitness support pack that contains a Smart Cleanse Micellar Water, a Hydra-Boost Day Cream, a Revitalise-Me Shower Gel, Aching Muscle Super Soak and an Instant Refreshing Gel – all within a handy ELEMIS gym bag.
2 weeks before: Start drinking hibiscus tea. Rich in flavanoids, several cups of this tea a day will help regulate your body’s water levels and beat bloating before you get into that bikini.
5 days before: Everyone looks and feels better with a bit of a glow. Fool-proof, streak-proof and odour-proof, our Brazilian Bronze Body System contains a Tan Accelerator, a Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion and a Brazilian-inspired sarong. So you get delicately bronzed skin – and a chic cover-up for beside the pool.
3 days before: For a last minute body confidence boost, our Targeted Toning Tightener is just the thing a few days before you jet off. Via a combination of massage techniques and detoxifying clay, skin is smoothed, circulation is boosted – and be it your arms, hips, thighs or your abdomen – your chosen trouble spot will emerge looking more taut and toned.
The day before: There’s nothing like a pretty polish to set off your sandals and make perfect your hands when they’re wrapped around a sunset cocktail. If you can’t make it to The Speed Spa at The House of ELEMIS for a GelColour Manicure by OPI that will last the entirety of your two-week break, you can always perfect the art of the home mani and slick on this season’s favourite metallic shades.
