5 Ways To Prep Your Skin For Sleeveless Season

Dare to bare

The weather is getting hotter, and it can only mean one thing — it’s time to dress down. Summer calls for short shorts and sleeveless shirts. But are you ready to bare your skin? 


As modern women, we juggle a lot of tasks and roles. But it doesn’t mean we should put looking good and feeling great last in our priority list. So now that sleeveless season is approaching, we’re giving you top tips on making sure you’re ready and confident to wear clothes that you can flaunt your skin with.


Get rid of unwanted hair



For skin that literally feels smooth, you may want to get rid of unwanted hair on your body. There are a lot of ways to go about it; there’s waxing, sugaring, laser and shaving. Go for the one you’re comfortable with, and start feeling the difference.

Exfoliate



If you haven’t made exfoliating a habit yet, it’s time to do so. Slough off dead skin cells and refine your skin’s texture. You can go for a physical exfoliating with the help of a body scrub or a loofah or you may also opt to do a chemical exfoliation through dermatological procedures. Either way, your skin will feel renewed and ready for nourishment.

Hydrate

We’ve been told this a thousand times before, and it’s true — drink up for good skin! Make sure you’re hydrated to keep your skin healthy. Plain old H2O is still the best way to go, but you can also take advantage of in-season fruits and enjoy smoothies and shakes. 


Smooth it out

Have you been noticing a few small, hard, light-coloured bumps on your arms? There’s no need to panic! It might be a common skin issue called keratosis pilaris, which is common for people with dry skin. If you have it and are not happy about your arms feeling sandpaper-like because of it, it’s time to start taking moisturising your skin seriously.

Whiten, Repair and Protect




Summer is the season for baring skin, and you should do so confidently! If having dull, damaged and uneven skin tone is hindering you from showing off, then it’s time you upgrade your lotion to a serum that’s packed with benefits. The NIVEA Extra White Body Serum whitens, repairs and protects the skin. It’s packed with 95% Vitamin C from Camu Camu that helps whiten the skin and get rid of dark spots while caring for it. It also has Q10, which repairs damaged skin. On top of that, it also has SPF 33, which protects the skin from harmful UVA, UVA1, and UVB rays — perfect for preparing your skin for flaunting. 


Follow these tips and you’re sure to have skin that you’ll be confident to bare this season — and all year long.
