Here’s how to scrub away the winter blahs and reveal a glowing you just in time for Valentines Day!

Sexy lingerie and smoldering make-up seem to be the attention grabbing must-haves for this special occasion but for me it’s all about a silky, smooth skin from top-to-toe.

Start with…You can scrub your skin sexy smooth with an over-the-counter exfoliating scrub – a cream or gel-based product that contains tiny abrasive particles. Look for ones with rounded particles, as they won’t scratch the skin. Just massage the scrub into damp skin then rinse with lots of water.  You can copy what many health spa’s do by keeping a tub of natural sea salts in the shower. Scoop a handful when you get in and rub all over your body, then rinse away thoroughly. Another tip is to dry body brush skin starting at the soles of your feet and work up towards the heart. This will loosen dry surface skin and help dispel toxins from the body as it boosts circulation.

Slather on…A luxurious smelling body lotion whilst your skin is still damp and warm so it soaks in more readily.

Finish with…A few spritzes of your favorite fragrance and remember to spray it where you want to be kissed!
