Please tell me I am not alone in the feeling of dread that comes with that first warm-weather day or weekend of the year? I check my weather app and see a sunny forecast and 80 degree temperatures but look in the mirror and see lots of dry, pasty skin in need of some summer lovin’ (I hate myself for writing that. I am very sorry). I am naked and afraid, people.
It’s at this point I begin to wonder why I didn’t anticipate this moment months in advance so I could avoid the feeling I have every year around this exact time. Inevitably, I will find myself in the very same predicament next summer - feverishly cramming dry brushing, exfoliation, and self-tanning into a 24 hour period because some of us just work better under pressure. If you’re like me, here are some quick tips to get your skin into its best condition.
Next year: same time, same place.
