Summer Sun Without The Rays + Moisturizer = Boudoir Best | Nashville Boudoir Photography

In almost every sense of the word, a boudoir session is truly an investment in you. Aside from the boost to your confidence when you see your stunning portraits, plus the hours of pampering during your shoot, there’s also weeks of self-care which help get you to look and feel camera ready. 

Your body is a machine and for it to shine right, you’ve got to keep it well oiled! Sure, you probably have a bathroom full of lotions and moisturizers, but we’re here to help you get the most of your products so you will be your bombshell best.

Right after that morning shower when your skin is still a little damp is the perfect time to apply your moisturizer. This helps lock in that moisture so you’re getting the most out of your product. Drop a quarter-sized amount of your yummiest-lotion, and be sure to warm it up between your hands before applying it all over. Of course, you can always choose a nice lavender lotion for after your evening shower adding soft skin, and a good night’s sleep, to your beauty routine!

The best thing you can do for your skin is hydrated from the inside out, and for that water, good, clean H2O is your best friend. Aside from helping flush out toxins, drinking plenty of water can also help your body with issues like eczema. 

Drinking lots of waters helps your skin look fuller and fresher, even helping eliminate puffy eyes, and smoothing out your skin tone. Move over foundation: Evian to the rescue! (Ok, that might be taking it too far, but you get the point.)

Once you’re soft and supple you might want to consider adding some color to that hot body. Ask friends and family for a referral to a tanning place that offers spray tans. The first step of getting a great, long-lasting, even spray tan is to exfoliate and then…. Yup, you guessed it: moisturize. 

HOT TIP: Find a location that allows you tan totally naked so you can avoid pesky tan lines. It’s also a great way to take some baby steps towards feeling comfortable in front of others while undressed.

Whether you just want a little color or are looking for some more dramatic tones, taking good care to moisturize your skin will help have you in tip-top shape for that glow-up you’re planning. We can’t wait to see you shine!
