It’s nearly beach o’clock so time to buff it baby! Why not grab your own coconut oil from our online store and get that glowing skin you’ve always wanted.
Drink water. We know you know but are you doing it? Properly? If you actually hate water, no problem. Give your water intake a chic edge with the Fruit Infuser Bottle, £7 fromFactorysupplements.co.uk
. Just add mint, cucumber, lemon, lime or ginger to infuse your water with flavour all day long. The design captures all the solids so you just get lightly flavoured water. Lush. This beautifying liquor will encourage glowing skin, skin cell turnover and seriously hot hydration levels.
Buff up every morning pre-shower with a DIY blend to help banish cellulite and smooth your skin. Mix coffee granules with coconut oil and massage into your problem skin areas. Use a circular motion to get the blood flowing. Random, but it works. Just make sure you rinse afterwards.

Talking of faces, twice a week treat yours to a homemade avocado mask that will hydrate, calm and even out any skin tone issues. Mash up oats, avocado and a little coconut oil, spread on, wait 10 minutes and rinse with tepid water.

At the end of your shower time blast your face and body with some cold water. Chilly, yes, but it closes pores right up giving your skin a glowing and fresh impression. Definitely worth it.
6. WRAP IT
When it comes to moisturising, pimp your chosen hydrater’s powers by slicking it on and wrapping your bod in warm towels. It’s cosy, plus the heat helps the product sink in and boosts cell productivity, making your skin smooth and healthy.

Start dance classes. It’s the best way to have fun whilst simultaneously doing HITT (high intensity interval training). The stop/start moves mean you burn lots of calories and improve blood circulation to the skin. Result: healthier looking skin.
