You’re probably stuck in an office when the sun does decide to shine, so make the most of technology and get your golden sunkissed glow from a bottle. Gone are the days of being ‘tangoed’ and ‘streaky’ – most tanning formulas are now made idiot proof. Do always try to prep your skin by exfoliating, although this isn’t essential, then apply your chosen lotion or potion, invest in a tanning mitt to save your palms! He-Shi are very good, as is St Tropez and Sienna X fake tans. If you are a newby to fake tanning opt for a gradual tanner so that you can ease into it. Tanned skin is wonderfully slimming and it hides all sorts of sins! Go for it and good luck.

You can spend years trying to find a good Waxist. It is such a mission and often you just put up with the one you have out of convenience. Well we have found the Golden Girl of waxing; Sharon Coote at The Beauty House in St Mary is everything you want in a Waxist. She is quick, she is meticulous, and most importantly she will give you an almost completely pain free service.
This woman is a total pro, seamlessly and gently alternating between three different waxes to get rid of every single hair, no matter how minute. I’ve always been a total wuss when it comes to waxing, and only have it done about once a year when I have forgotten how traumatic the last experience was, but I couldn’t believe the difference when Sharon did it, it was unlike any other wax I’ve ever tried and now I’m a convert, booking in my next appointment before I left.
When you have a great service you often want to rave about it to all your girlfriends, luckily I have access to an island-wide medium to do this through! If you live out West then it is a no-brainer to book in and try her out, and if you live in the East then the journey is well worth it.

FROM DAY TO NIGHT
Now that summer is here there will be numerous occasions where you are expected to be chilling on the beach one minute then looking fabulous having sun downers the next. You can’t lug your whole makeup case around with you 24/7 so just focus on the essentials which will help transform you from beach bade to party princess. A dab of good concealer, pencil eyeliner, mascara and for the pièce de résistance a bright bold lipstick! We’re loving the BareMinerals Marvellous Moxie lips range at the moment because they have some fab colours to suit any skin tone and they last all night!
Bare Minerals is available from Feelunique at Au Caprice
TAKE SOME TIME OUT
Summer is here. You no longer have an excuse to be curled up on your sofa, you are obliged to be out in the sun and ‘make the most of it’. Alas, all this frolicking can take its toll. If you need a little relax lock yourself away in your bathroom, close all the blinds, light a candela and add a few drops of REN’s Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil. It smells so decedent you can’t help but be soothed by the delicious light rose fragrance. When you do have to rejoin the real world you will do so with nourished skin and a stress relieved mind!
