Touch up those tootsies and refresh that manicure! Sunny summer days are making an appearance, so a little care and freshen up is needed! Here are a few pointers to remember when prepping your hands and feet for summer… 

Your hands:

For sipping cocktails by the pool, a sleek manicure is an absolute must. If a long-lasting look is what you’re after, book in an appointment at the nail salon a couple of days prior to your departure and treat yourself to a gel or Shellac treatment. This will ensure your nails stay chic and chip-free for the duration of your holiday.

If you prefer to match your polish to your outfit, opt for an at-home mani. Trim those nails, push back your cuticles and brush on your favourite shade. Then pop in a couple of colour options to your holiday beauty bag to switch it up by the beach. Finish off with a UVA/UVB top coat to help prevent your fresh new nails discolouring in the sunny rays.

Your feet:

Nobody wants cracked and dry feet in stylish new sandals, so before you jet off on holiday a little bit of preparation is in order. Begin with an exfoliating scrub to remove any dead skin cells and hard patches. If you need something slightly tougher, a foot file or pumice stone are great for those tricky spots.

Once your feet are smooth to the touch, restore softness with a rejuvenating massage of thick foot cream. For the ultimate impact, cover your feet in cream and pop on a pair of moisturising socks before bed for an overnight surge of moisture. Finally, complete your perfect pedicure with a slick of nail polish for holiday-ready toes.
