I've put together this post in preparation for the summer. I've included some products that I use all the time and some products I don't actually use but some people do when they are preparing for the summer.

The Dove Silk Glow Body wash is one of my summer must haves. I really like Dove products, I always have. The Silk Glow range adds a glow and a bit of shimmer to the skin making it a lovely product for the summer. In the Silk Glow range you can also get a lotion which is very similar. Dove products always leave my skin feeling really soft and smelling clean and fresh. This product is so afforable its usually a few pounds so its a good value product.

The Elemis Body Sculpting Range is a must have for me in the summer. If i'm having my legs out I want them to look firm. Using this range makes my legs look more firm and less saggy. You have to massage the lotion and serum onto the body and this allows the formula to work into your skin. I'm a massive fan of Elemis and think very highly of all of their products.

ST Moriz Tanning Mist is one of those talked about products but I rarely use Fake Tan. I know loads of people like to use tan in the run up to their holidays. I've used a St Moriz tan before and found it was a very good tan for the price. I have been sent loads of different higher end fake tans to try but I don't ever use them. I like to go on holiday to get a tan. To apply fake tan its reccommended that you shave and exfoliate before applying and also use a tanning mit to get a streak free tan.

Hair removal is another biggy when your off on holiday, the last thing you want to do is be shaving on holiday. I find that my hairs grow so fast when i'm away, and no one wants hairy legs by the pool. There's loads of different hair removal options, shaving is one which I think is very common. Hair removal creams are another cheap alternative and waxing is another method however I'm not a massive fan of waxing. A more long term hair removal method is laser hair removal. Theres loads of reasons why laser  hair removal is so popular. It's kinder to your skin that waxing and is suitable to most skin types and even on sensitive areas. It also lasts longer so you shouldn't have to worry about those hairs appearing whilst your away.

Theres loads more about hair removal here on the website as well as other treatments including milia removal and skin tightening treatments. Milia removal is not something i'd really heard of before. Milia is those little white spots that most people call 'milk spots'. Treatment is available from £50 at sknclinics. A short term way to lessen the appearance of milia is to use hot wet towels or facial scrubs, but this isn't a permanent solution. These are There's loads of great articles to read on sknclinics. Theres tips on how to look after your skin including this post about how to avoid sun damage.

Lotions, it's very important to keep your skin hydrating before, whilst and after your holiday. I go away to get a nice tan so the last thing I want is for my skin to peel. I like to use after sun whilst i'm on holiday to moisturise my skin. I have so many lotions and body creams to choose from but i've included this Ted Baker lotion because it smells lovely and is a really nice formula. My skin goes very dry when i'm on holiday so I always bring plenty of moisturisers to keep my skin hydrated. Last year I brought along Liz Earle Skin Repair mosturiser which was very hydrating and I actually ended up using it on different areas that had started to peel as well as my face.

So there we go, theres a few products and different ways to prepare your skin for the summer. Are any of you off on your holidays and which products will you be taking along with you?
