Beauty and the beach

When it comes to my skin, I have combination skin (oily t-zone and dry cheeks). My step-by-step routine always starts with hydrating my body from the inside by drinking lots of water.
The next step is to use a steamer or have a very hot shower to cleanse my skin, followed by exfoliation. I do this from head to toe using scrubs and an organic loofah. The exfoliation helps remove all the dead skin from your body and will result in giving you that beautiful sun-kissed tan at the beach.
Lastly, I hydrate my skin with a super thick moisturiser. Always remember to moisturise after being in the sun. Try using a hyaluronic acid-based moisturiser to protect your skin from UV rays or Innisfree's Jeju Cherry Blossom lotion. I love using Banana Boat's tanning oil as I believe it's the absolute best when it comes to achieving that gorgeous J.Lo sun-kissed tan.
My all-time favourite go-to brands are Innisfree and Norah Skincare, while my absolute favourite suncare product is Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh SPF Mist, which is super convenient to use, as it comes in a spray bottle.
Remember: The key to beautiful skin is to stay super hydrated, and always use sun protection before heading out.
