Summer is finally here and the heatwave in England is looking like it's going to stay! I've been looking at holidays and I've booked a weekend away in the Lake District with friends in August; also I'm going on a cruise in August too so I've been thinking about summer holiday prepping! Here are some of my holiday beauty prepping steps, along with more exercise, toning and healthy eating.

Hair Removal 
Let's start with the most important and the most painful step, hair removal. The only thing I don't like about going away on holiday is the hair removal process as while shaving is very quick, easy and inexpensive, it doesn't last for very long at all! In comes waxing to the rescue, a painful rescue, which lasts much longer.

Waxing within a salon is definitely the way to go as I'm always too scared to do it myself, unless it's my brows! Groupon have a range of fantastic deals and offers on waxing within my home city of Manchester (there are various locations of salons around the city) with prices from as little as £6 which is so much more affordable than other options I've looked at so definitely check out Groupon for waxing deals before your summer holiday.

Teeth Whitening 
Next up is something I've done on and off for years, teeth whitening. I have tried almost every whitening toothpaste, mouthwash and at home treatment available (you can check out some of my reviews) and I have found a few that actually work! Firstly, the surprisingly amazing Blax Pro toothpastes which I've been using for a couple of months and it's dramatically helped and the iWhite Teeth Whitening kit - both of which I cannot recommend enough!

Masks & Treatments 
Lastly, for a masks and treatments! I use hair masks and face masks constantly for the few weeks leading up to my summer holiday. One of my favourite face masks is the Caudalie Detox Mask which is a fantastic mask for deeply cleansing the skin. I also like to use hair masks once a week or I will use my Moroccan Oil hair oil all over my hair and scalp for a few hours then wash it out for smooth, moisturised and tame hair.

What are your pre-holiday favourites or pampering processes? Do you use Groupon?

  1. Totally agree waxing is the best option for holidays. I always find it doesn't grow back as fast but I agree, couldn't do it myself! Great tips.

  9. The worst part about the Summer is having to shave my legs x

  10. These are all very important aspects of beauty for the summer!!

  11. I use Groupon and get some great deals there. I like to get my eyebrows done and maybe my hair before holidays but I can't say I go as far as teeth whitening.

  12. I'm all about masks, always! Especially hair masks right now x

  13. I love whitening my teeth, it makes me feel so much more confident x

  14. Totally agree with all of these. I’ve been using s hair remova laser treatment to combat hair removal and whitening teeth strips.

  15. I really like Groupon. I love a good pamper before a holiday x

  16. Pre-holiday hair masks are a must for me - my hair gets SO dry in the heat!

  17. My prep includes nails, lashes and fake tan! x

  18. I have luckily had laser done, so hair removal is the least of my worries! I do like to exfoliate and moisturise extra well. Oh and do my nails!

  19. I really want to try a decent teeth whitening product

  20. I love having a pamper!Getting my nails done before going on holiday is such a treat.


  21. I only ever get waxed because it lasts so much longer than shaving does and I find even once you've shaved, you still look like you have hair there because the root of the hair hasn't been removed which creates a dark patch!xo

  22. I've recently started to get into teeth whitening. It's definitely part of my routine now too :)
