This time of year is exciting for many of us as we start to think about summer holidays, time spent on the beach or round the pool with our family, or simply laying in the garden, reading a book! However, keeping up with things like shaving and exfoliating isn’t always a priority when we’re covered up for the cold weather, so getting ready to don a swimsuit takes a little more effort and prep. Here, we’ve put together a to-do list to ensure you look as polished as possible before you step into your swimsuit:

Defuzz Yourself

If hair removal isn’t at the top of your self-care list during the colder months, you’re probably going to have to do some shaving or waxing to get on top of things. Elemis Ice Cool Foaming Shave Gel contains Chinese date, English oak and witch hazel to help defend the skin against irritation and razor burn whilst softening the hair to result in the easiest of shaves. Follow this up with Elemis Skin Soothe Shave Gel, which contains primed micro-capsules that instantly release a unique complex of marine extracts and Jojoba oil, known for their skin-soothing action.


Exfoliating after shaving is beneficial for maintaining smooth and healthy skin. Shaving not only removes unwanted hair but also exfoliates the skin by sloughing off dead cells from the surface. However, this process can sometimes lead to irritation, ingrown hairs, or razor bumps, especially for those with sensitive skin. Exfoliating post-shave helps to further unclog pores, prevent ingrown hairs, and reduce the likelihood of irritation by clearing away any remaining dead skin cells and debris. This allows for better absorption of moisturisers and soothing products, promoting softer, more radiant skin. Additionally, exfoliating can help to prolong the smoothness of the skin between shaves, resulting in a more comfortable and effective shaving experience overall. The Medik8 Smooth Body Exfoliating Kit contains everything you need to instantly revitalise rough, dry or bumpy skin.


Moisturising your body is an essential step in maintaining healthy, supple skin year-round. The skin is the body’s largest organ and acts as a barrier to protect against environmental aggressors, such as pollution, harsh weather conditions, and UV radiation. Moisturisers work by replenishing the skin’s natural oils and sealing in moisture, which helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier function and prevent moisture loss. This not only keeps the skin hydrated and smooth but also helps to alleviate dryness, itching, and flakiness. Regular moisturising can also improve the skin’s elasticity,  over time. Moreover, using moisturisers formulated with ingredients like antioxidants, vitamins, and humectants can provide additional benefits, such as soothing irritation, and promoting overall skin health. Elemis Targeted Toning Body Moisturiser harnesses the power of nigari salt and jania rubens to help reduce the appearance of dimpling and promote more refined, even-looking skin.

Fake the Glow

Many of our clients say that they feel a lot more confident donning a bikini or cossie if they’ve got a bit of a tan ahead of time. We don’t advocate the use of sunbeds as they’re so damaging for the skin, but using St.Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Gel will ensure you have a golden glow in the safest way possible. This lightweight and translucent gel glides on with an applicator mitt instantly lifting skin, with a wearable hint of tint to guide application, ensuring no missed patches and without transfer. Infused with hyaluronic acid and intelligent shade technology, this advanced formula offers 3 shades in 1, by simply choosing when to rinse off.
