Summer is Here

The weather is now unbearably warm. It is so uncomfortable to do anything. Sleeping is hard work, eating is hard work, cooking is harder, and even just breathing takes a lot more effort in this heat. I don’t cope well in summer. Can you tell? I like seeing lovely sunny days, but I like it when it is cool. When it gets too warm and air is just still, I get really uncomfortable. The fans we have don’t do much. Investing in those fancy cool gadgets for some cooler air doesn’t make any sense to me because the weather will change back to bearable before we know it.

I am unable to have the windows open for too long, thanks to the high pollen count. I have been squeezing and itching all through this week, it is a miracle I cam still work. I guess that is the beauty of working from home. You can work in your pyjamas even on sick days.

Enough of me moaning now. These last few days have been really hard for me, but how have you all be coping?

The only good thing about the heat and the hay fever, is that is now officially SUMMER, and the heaters have been off for weeks. At a point, it felt like they would never go off! One thing I love about summer is the long days, the fact that I can still take an outfit picture at 8pm if I want to is brilliant. I also really love summer fashion, especially the summer dresses and sandals. Being able to show a bit of skin feels good after being bundled up for so long.

However, showing more skin means, the summer body has to be in place, and I am still working on the abs as I said in the My Protein outfit post, so no crop tops here, thank you. But I will be showing the legs off, you know I love to.

I have recently tried a hair removal cream for the first time. I usually just use a shaving stick to get the hairs off but this time I applied some hair removal cream on my underarms, and it got rid of the hair smoothly. It was a lovely experience, so I will be using it on my legs soon. I will write a full review on the product, so look out for that post.

With body hairs issue out of way, the only thing left to really tackle is the stretch marks on the thighs. It is not a major issue, I have had them for years now. They have reduced but there is still room for improvemens. I would like to see them all off basically. I will be swimming a lot this summer, and I would love to go on holiday at some point this year, so getting the stretch marks off for good would be ace.

The guys at Pulse Light Clinic London offer free same day consultations for stretch mark removal, so I should be popping in to take them up on this offer. The fact that I can just walk in and have my consultation is so good because I don’t live in London, and most of my trips are usually not that planned in advance, so popping in is good for me. I also like the fact that there is no downtime, I can carry on as normal, and the treatment is great for all skin types. I will be looking into this treatment.

What plans do you have for summer? Sound off in the comment section below.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

How To Get Rid Of Stretch Marks

Stretch Marks

I have had stretch marks for as long as I can remember, my weight went up and down so many times in my teen years, and I had a lot more stretch marks while I was pregnant with my twins. Some have faded away but some have refused to go. I have tried everything humanly possible, Bio Oil, Cocoa Butter and the works, but these stubborn stretch marks have refused to go away.

I remember my pregnancy days, I tried everything in the book to avoid having more strech marks, I didn’t scratch my bump, even though I was dying to, I applied cocoa butter everyday on my bump and I didn’t eat for three, but I still got the dreaded stretch marks.

Now, these marks do not worry me as such as they are usually covered and barely visible, but it would be lovely to get rid of them all for good. I have recently read about laser removal treatments for stretch marks and it has given me hope, hope that one sweet day, my body will be smooth and free from stretch marks.

Stretch Marks Free

The laser removal treatment works using a fractional laser technology, short pulses of laser energy are delivered to the skin – specifically targeting the stretch marks. The laser stimulates the production of new collagen to smooth out the skin and improve discolouration.

This laser treatment is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure. It is very quick, you will start to notice a difference in your skin after about 3-5 sessions, and it usually take about 30 minutes for each session. Also, you likely won’t require a downtime or bed rest, you can carry on as normal immediately after the treatment. The laser treatment can work on any skin type, and all stretch marks, no matter the cause, and the final results are fantastic.

I am looking forward to trying this out for myself. Do you have stretch marks that bother you? Have you heard of this laser treatment before? Drop me a comment, let’s chat. Thanks for reading.
