Tip no. 1: plan meals with care

It's time to stop snacking and plan your meals carefully with balanced nutrition in mind. Stay away from sugary treats and choose foods that are low in calories and easy to prepare. Salads, grilled meats and fruit are your best friends for summer.

Tip no. 2: prepare your skin

Use an exfoliating scrub every week to get your skin ready for the sun. Exfoliating with Almond Delicious Paste will ensure your skin is soft and supple. With improved hydration, your skin will be ready to soak up the holiday sun.

Tip no. 3: exercise

Running, swimming, biking... do your favourite activity at least once a week to shape up your body. Even better? Get moving every day! Walk to work instead of taking public transport or choose the stairs instead of the lift.

Tip no. 4: stay well hydrated

The secret of beautiful skin starts with good hydration. Drink lots of water and avoid sugary drinks. After your shower in the evening, apply Almond Milk Concentrate using a kneading-rolling technique for skin that is nourished and smooth.

Tip no. 5: put together your perfect beauty kit

Think about the beauty necessities you'll need to pack. Sunscreen for face and body? Hair oil or treatment? Make sure you don't forget anything for your perfect beach holiday.
