As days get sunnier and mornings get brighter, the countdown to summer is really on. Whether you’re lucky enough to enjoy sunshine on tap like our friends in Croatia, or you’re living in a city and hoping for some sunshine rather than clouds, indulging the body and mind in some Pre-Summer Body Prep is sure to brighten your mood. At Saint Iris Adriatica, we’re not talking about being ‘beach body ready’, but rather focusing on enjoyable beauty and wellness switches to ensure that you’re glowing all summer long.
Reveal your smoothest skin with regular exfoliation and prepare the skin for any faux-tan applications. For the smoothest arms (underarms included!), a masking session with Purity Paste unveils an even skin tone, making short sleeves a complete breeze. Our non-drying mask gently warms the skin as the ingredients work by exfoliating the skin thanks to the all-natural skincare actives. Cedar micro-dust (the secret behind the mask’s distinctive orange hue) combines with willow back (a natural source of salicylic acid) to effectively remove impurities from within skin’s pores, revealing smooth and refined skin wherever the mask is used.
Experiment With Body Brushing
Another one of SIA’s favourite beauty treatments is a dry body brushing session before showering. The daily practice helps to soften and smooth skin, and allows for lotions to hydrate the skin more effectively when they are applied. The process involves shedding the dry skin on the body, so following up with a hydrating lotion such as SIA’s Serenity Salve ensures that the skin is left nourished. Dry body brushing is also an environmentally-friendly addition, as there are no microbeads washing away which helps to maintain our oceans.
Treat Skin Before Any Sun Exposure
When the sun starts to shine the feeling of heavy and cloying body moisturisers can feel like too much for the skin, which is where our Wake-Up Droplets come into play. The serum drops are rich in stabilised Vitamin C to offer comprehensive protection against environmental aggressors and pollutants, making them ideal for any of our city-dwellers. Soothing and cooling, a dose of the droplets instantly soothes skin that has been exposed to the sun; thirsty skin is instantly refreshed.
Grab Your In-Flight Essentials
For those jetting off to somewhere with guaranteed sunshine, discover your ultimate in-flight beauty essentials with a bottle of the Vitality Spritz. Coming in at 100ml, the bottle can easily be stored in your hand luggage and used throughout a flight to rehydrate the skin (as well as creating a relaxing environment to have a moment of fjaka whilst in the air…). Whilst on the go enjoying a city break or relaxing on the beach, the fine mist instantly refreshes and leaves the skin feeling cool and rejuvenated. We added safflower and olive seed extracts to the formula which help to ensure skin is hydrated.
Enjoy the sun! Until next time… Ciao x
