12th July 2016


The countdown is on.

The flights are booked, the new bikini is waiting in your dresser and you’ve read every guidebook known to man on your chosen destination. It’s officially vacation season. And with that comes major excitement and even more pre-trip beauty prep.

But what to do – and when?

We’ve got the summer holiday body countdown clock to guide you through:

3 months before: Set the stage by prepping with ELEMIS Body Enhancement 3 Month Detoxification supplements. Formulated with a renowned herbal specialist, and crafted from the purest plant extracts and marine algae, these handy pills are basically bikini beauty in a bottle. Not only do they assist with weight loss and cellulite, they also boost energy and help balance the skin.


1 month before: Ramp 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 vacation.. 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 in an ELEMIS gym bag.



2 weeks before: Start drinking hibiscus tea. Rich in flavonoids, several cups a day will help regulate your body’s water levels and beat bloating.


5 days before: Everyone looks and feels better with a bit of a glow. Fool-proof, streak-proof and odor-proof, our Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion and Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser For Face. You get delicately bronzed skin, and a chic pool cover-up to boot.

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. Be it your arms, hips, thighs or tummy, your "trouble spot" will look more taut and toned. Find your nearest ELEMIS spa.


The day before: There’s nothing like a pretty polish to set off your sandals and perfect your hands for clasping that sunset cocktail.
