Ready for summer in three steps


Last week we got a taste of excellent summer weather yet to my surprise many people were still walking around wearing long pants and coats. Hello people! We’re not in Siberia! Still I get it though. Before pulling out my shorty’s there were a few things I had to take care of myself in order to look smooth and shiny. So, Tahdah, here are my three best tips to get rid of your summer stress.


Besides it being sticky and uncomfortable pantyhose are a no-go during the summer. What has to happen is: bare legs. For waxing you need to wait until you’re a little downy (nope, takes too long), shaving leaves red marks and cuts so your solution is this new Braun Silk-épil. Seriously, it’s much more effective than waxing, it takes out hairs up to 4 times shorter, usable under the shower and it doesn’t hurt a bit. An the best part is probably the fact that your legs stay silky soft for weeks. Oh Jessica Alba is a fan, check out her legs. Copy and paste.

I enjoy watching TV-programs where you see people getting out in the sun and only neatly applying lotion on their bodies. The difference between head and body is about 30 years. You really don’t want that. Therefore it’s important to take care of your face. Now suntan lotion and other creams may contribute to improving your look but it doesn’t work like that in the long run. You might want to add cleaning your face two times a day to your to-do list. It doesn’t have to take hours, better yet; it can be done in two minutes. Braun has a new gadget the ‘Braun Face’ that has different types of brushes. From sensitive to a sponge to massages cream into the skin for the best effect, making your face look absolutely radiant. Dirt is removed thoroughly making your face glow. You do need an SPF but you can lose the make-up, don’t need it.

Summer depends on the sun but it also depends on your body. A bit of color looks great but going about this in a healthy manner is just as important. Lotion’s away and keep it coming. SPF 50 for the face and SPF30 for the body. Repeat every two hours because you don’t want your skin to stay wrinkle-free as long as possible.

We aren’t that bad. We want you to have a wonderful carefree summer. And the best part is we’re allowed to give away 2 summer boxes by Braun.
