Working up to my holiday

The promise of hot sunshine and lazy days in my bikini makes me try to buff up a bit. My gorgeous Xen-Tan has just faded, so I scrub off the last with a loofah. I will have a few pale in-between days then redo the Xen-Tan the day before I fly. I have an addiction to No7 Microdermabrasion face scrub. Its got tiny particles that effectively polish off every dead skin cell in sight. None of the grainy peach-kernel nonsense there!! I'm currently also working Decleor's Aromessence Ylang Ylang face oil into my skin every night. It smells divine and you wake up fresh-faced and glowing. I have very temperamental combination skin and this is the only thing that makes it better. I have discovered Umberto Giannini Overnight Moisture Balm. It is like a night cream for the hair. I smooth it onto my hair before I go to bed and it gives a nice shine to your hair when you wake up. I don't think it would work for really greasy hair, you should then only work it into the ends of the hair. I also have an addiction to The Body Shop's Coconut Body Butter. It smells juct like hot sunshine and summery fun to me. When its time for bed, I cover my feet with foot cream and put on moisturising socks. I use a rich handcream and then Nails Inc Vitamin E Oil Slick pen on my cuticles (terribly dry due to my obsession with nail polish). Then you just have to hope your neighbour doesn't play music all night so you can get your beauty sleep! :)
