As we emerge from lockdown and reach the long-awaited summer months, we rejoice in the thought of being able to dust off our summer wardrobe, get on a plane (hopefully!) and cover ourselves in SPF. However, after over a year of no holidays and a very long winter, it’s likely that we all need to up our skincare game when it comes to our bodies.
According to market researcher NPD Group, during the pandemic body serum sales grew by 32%, and body exfoliator sales grew by 15%, suggesting that lockdown has allowed us to spend more time on our self-care regimes to include the body – meaning our overall skin health is going in the right direction.
However, despite the increased time we seem to be spending on self-care and body care regimes, it has been reported that over half of adults in the UK feel worse about their body image after lockdown. In this blog post we look at some key tips for you to feel summer ready with your body care and overall skin health to allow you to be body confident and feel empowered to take action to do what makes you feel comfortable, confident and healthy in your own skin.
5 Ways to Feel Body Confident this Summer
Whether it’s to prep for your glowing fake tan or to get silky smooth skin, this should form the first stage of your body care routine.
2. Banish the Orange Peel
80% of women in the UK develop cellulite during their lives. Although it’s very common and natural, many women – and men! – choose to look for solutions to reduce its appearance. The best starting point for this is to invest in an anti-cellulite cream with clinically proven ingredients so that you know it can provide real results. Gone are the days of anti-cellulite creams only containing caffeine to stimulate the skin, more sophisticated body claims are increasing in the market so make sure that you do your research to choose one that you feel confident is going to provide true results.
The alternative for faster, more enhanced results, is to opt for one of the many popular non-invasive professional treatments available at aesthetic clinics around the country. The Endor Technologies Celltense Treatment is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite with no pain, no downtime and fantastic results.

3. Enhance Your Workouts
Not only does exercise help your physical and mental health, it also helps increase the flow of oxygenated blood around your body – giving you that perfect after work-out skin glow. Add the Endor Technologies Firming and Body Shaping Cream to your daily body care routine to help boost your work-outs and help get rid of difficult pockets of fat.
4. Don’t forget the SPF!
A sunscreen product with UVA filters and an SPF of at least 25 should be used (we would recommend an SPF of 50). You should apply sunscreen 30 minutes before you go out, and make sure to reapply it regularly throughout the day. Use 1 teaspoon full of product for the face and neck, 2 teaspoons to cover your face, arms and neck, and 2 tablespoons if you’re covering your entire body while wearing a swimming costume (NHS guidance).
5. Embrace your body
Finally, the most important one – embrace your body! No matter what shape or size you are, be proud of your beautiful, healthy skin and do everything that you can to make sure that it stays in the best condition possible continuing to include your body in your daily skincare routines.
