Keep Your Body Beautiful In Winter
YES, it’s winter and even though your body is protected by clothes it should still be taken care of. During cold winter days, a simple nourishing lotion is not enough. While exercise and a well-balanced diet delivers your best body, our winter body care edit will enhance the benefits. Because summer bodies are made in winter after all.
#1 Shed Skin
WHEN winter sets in, flakiness sets in too, and you should slough it off before covering yourself in a layer of intensive body cream. We recommend Warm Orange & Ginger Salt Scrub (R65) By Matsimela to stimulate circulation and Thalgo’s Deeply Nourishing Body Cream (R771) with Cold Cream Marine to soothe, nourish and repair dry skin.
#2 Glow Show
THE Optiphi Body-Foliant (R731) is a dual-action enzymatic body exfoliant, that will leave your skin feeling sensually soft and looking radiant. The dual-acid complex will exfoliate your skin, gently removing dead skin cells and calming your skin, whilst reinstating vital anti-oxidants. It’s the first step to a full body glow. Top up your new glow with Vita Liberata Body Blur (R1 030) or Dawn Radiant Glow Body Cream (R21.95).
#3 Firm and Tone
DON’T have time to hit the gym? Get Body Contour Cream (R474) by Spalicious, which has a cocktail of active ingredients work to target fatty deposits with firming and restructuring properties. Combine it with Dove’s Uplifted+ Massaging Body Roll-on (Rxxx) for improved skin firmness and elasticity. It proves you don’t need to leave home to enjoy a premium skin care treatment and firmer skin.
#4 Treasure Chest
ALTHOUGH your chest is covered with polo necks and scarves, give it some TLC. Boob Tube+ Multi-Action Bust Cream (R850) from Mio Skincare is packed with vital omegas, organic shea butter and hyaluronic acid and contains nutrients your skin uses towards maintaining elasticity. Its powerful formula is infused with antioxidant CoQ10, which can contribute to a visibly smoother looking chest and breasts.
#5 Foot Therapy
IF you suffer from cracked heels soak your feet in warm water every night for 15 minutes. Apply Crabtree & Evelyn’s La Source Warming Foot Smoother (R500) around the heels. Wear Woolworths Pedi Socks (R99) to keep your feet supple and leave this on overnight.
TIP: Avoid the 3 moisture zappers in winter! Alcohol, caffeine and smoking.
