Beauty and skincare products on bright background

VELVET SKIN

Have you ever stood next to someone at a party, seen that image of your favourite star or on the beach and found yourself fixated by the flawless, supple, youthful look of their skin? And we don’t mean face.

 

Most people think body and skin care maintenance is a pre-party, date, special occasion or even pre-vacation and during a routine.

 

Over the years, we have the idea of routines that extend beyond your face, stripped, reinstated and stripped away as trend change.

 

The idea of taking time out every day or weekly to work on the parts of your skin that are only on show in a skirt, cocktail dress, shoulders, elbows, hands and arms has been labelled indulgent.

 

If you are spending a lot of money on your face why scrounge on the rest of your body?

 

Quick fixes with makeup, fake tan might offer temporary solutions for that impromptu dinner party but the difference in skin texture will reveal your well-hidden secret.

 

The extra 10 mins in bed every morning can’t be ignored if you just somehow forgo moisturising the rest of your body. The worry and angst of waiting for the moisturiser to sink in before you can put on your clothes and dash out the door. The extra 10 minutes for a scrub before running that bath on a Sunday.

 

If this is you, we have a secret to let you in on. The idea of successful routine is making sure that you pick one that you sustain. In the long run, your skin will thank you for it.

 

Uneven skin tone, blemishes, scarring and congested skin? Not on your face?

 

Full body scrub, a back facial, lasers, peels and microdermabrasion. Save some money and turn your very own bathroom into a luxe spa that can give you results wih a little effort often.

 

1. A moisturising oil in your bath will bump up the hydration levels.

 

2. Spend time exfoliating at least once a month, the circular motions will help boost circulation. Our Conditioning Body Scrub does the work, so all you need is light circular motions. In contact with water, it turns into a milk so no weird petrochemical beads lurking at the base of your bath to dig into your skin while you try to drift into indulgent me time.

 

3. Moisturise daily, our Conditioning Body Cream is non greasy, absorbs quickly and a real dream to apply. Up the ante in dryer climates and give yourself the extra 10 mins on the weekend massaging in your favourite oil and/or moisturiser. Even turn it into a treatment for dryer areas. See how here.

 

4. They say you can tell a woman’s age and where she has been by her hands. Our Nourishing hand cream is a great bedside table, desk and handbag companion. Squeeze a pea-sized amount onto the palms of your hands and rub together to warm and spread it evenly all over hands.  Pay attention to dryer areas such as knuckles, cuticles and nails and massage our nourishing hand cream over those areas. Repeat as often as required. To turn your hand cream into a treatment, use the steps above, follow with a pair bamboo gloves before bed and sleep your way to silky soft hands.

 

Treat your body as you do your face. It also needs TLC. The skin on your body can be much dryer than your face.
