Modelling Summer Skincare

In this  sizzling Summer heatwave are you protecting your skin??

In all the excitement to see the sun and feel the warmth it can be easy to forget to protect our skin,   so the Models Direct beauty team have put together some helpful reminders on how to remain safe in the sun while of course achieving a gorgeous sunkissed glow!

There is lots of information in the media about how harmful UVA/UVB rays are to our skin and with  longer expsire times to it in the Summer months it’s really important to protect your skin from them.  Too much sun  can  age a person and cause discolouration to the skin, this is something models are particularly careful of and will use a high factor suncream and  avoid too much sun.

In a busy office like ours,  there is plenty of chat  about the general goings  on,  who said what, who’s done what and who needs to be saved (and who should go!!),  it’s all pretty gripping stuff!

Viewing ratings have soared and broken records, so  it’s clearly a concept that appeals to the majority and offers it’s viewers  something not other programs do!

With Charlie, Eyal and Hayley all being models the Models Direct team have been watching what’s going on and how they come across to an audience,  with their toned physique ‘s and  good looks, they seem to be what alot of viewers aspire to be like possibly, is this  a healthy thing? Is it a true representation of how models are in this industry today?

Models Direct represents all category’s of models, including, fitness, fashion, catalogue and commercial, all  have a variety of shapes, looks and measurements.

Love Island has all the right ingrediants for viewers, fun, laughter, beautiful scenery and of course gorgeous people, all of which is  good escapism from our own lives for a little minute –  it’s very clever, entertaining TV from ITV.

It’s Friday night and with two couples up  for elimination, who are you going to be voting to save??
