Get Glowing: 6 Essential Steps to Holiday-Ready Skin

Get Glowing: 6 Essential Steps to Holiday-Ready Skin

School's out, your holiday is booked, and the sun is waiting to greet you! 🌞

It's time to start prepping your skin for those long, lazy summer days. At Folli Oil, we're all about helping you achieve healthier, smoother skin. So, we've put together our top 5 tips to ensure your skin is as ready for your holiday as you are:

1. Gentle Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the secret to a smoother, fresher complexion. But remember, it's a gentle art. Our Folli Oil Body Scrub is designed to provide a delicate yet effective exfoliation. Alternatively, dry skin brushing is a fantastic way to reveal soft, fresh skin and it comes with a host of health benefits!

It's best to start exfoliate a few weeks before your holiday, to give your skin time to adjust to the process to avoid any redness or irritation right before your trip. Pay attention to rough areas such as knees, elbows and heels. We recommend exfoliating your face 1-2 times a week and your body 2-3 times a week.

2. Skin Hydration

Proper hydration is the cornerstone of healthy skin, especially during the balmy summer months. Our Folli Oil Daily Treatment Oil is specially formulated to deliver the hydration your skin craves, leaving it feeling soft, supple, and revitalised.

Don't forget hydration starts from the inside out so make sure you're drinking enough water each day to keep your body and skin hydrated. Foods with high water content can help your skin such as cucumbers, watermelon and strawberries.

Plus skin repairs itself while you sleep, so make sure you're getting enough rest!

3. Applying Fake Tan

If you want to add a little extra glow to your skin, consider applying a fake tan. Make sure to exfoliate and hydrate your skin before for an even, natural-looking tan.

Pay particular attention to your knees, elbows and knees which tend to be drier and absorb more product. Use a tanning mitt to help you apply the product more evenly and prevent your hands from getting stained. Blend well to make sure you avoid streaks and remember, a fake tan doesn't provide sun protection, so don't forget your sunscreen!

4. Sun Protection

Protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays is essential. Make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen before stepping outdoors, even on cloudy days.

5. Post-Sun Care

After a day in the sun, your skin needs some extra love. If your skin feels hot, take a cool shower to help reduce the temperature of your skin and soothe any potential sunburn.

Our Folli Oil Exfoliating Tonic, enriched with soothing aloe vera, is designed to cool, soothe, and hydrate your skin, helping to maintain its health and vitality.

Avoid more sun exposure if you have overdone it and wear protective clothing and stay in the shade as much as possible.

6. In Case of Emergency

If you encounter an ingrown hair or a spot of irritation, don't panic! Our Intensive Care Oil (part of Folli Oil Emergency Fix) is your go-to for quick relief. It's like a mini spa treatment for your skin, whenever you need it.
