We all dream of having super soft skin all year round but the reality is that as the winter months approach, we dare to bare less and if we can’t see it, it doesn’t matter right? Wrong! As the weather starts to improve we gradually peel back the layers of clothing, we notice those extra pounds which seemed to have appeared over night and the reality is that our legs are more akin to Chewbacca than those super svelte pins we had back in the summer.
It’s time to brush and buff your cares away and so now it’s not a question of whether we dare to bare, but how do we prepare to bare? “Giving it the brush off and Sugar Buff” I hear you cry, that is indeed correct!
Creating your own home spa detox routine might seem a bit daunting but we guarantee this will bring life back into those limbs and ‘Giving It the Brush Off’ is the perfect way to start. Dry brushing is an ancient spa practice and adopting this as part of your routine helps to reduce cellulite and improve the texture of your skin. The motion of brushing helps the body’s natural detoxification process, increase lymphatic drainage and release toxins…that’s got to be good, right? All you have to do before you jump in the shower is start brushing at the feet and working up the legs using gentle sweeping movements, towards the heart. Then work on your hands and start moving up the arms, shoulders, back and body and VOILA, your skin will be on its way to having its healthy glow once again.
Once you’ve hopped in the shower we prescribe SUGAR BUFF. This delicious Mediterranean inspired sugar body scrub is essential for removing dead skin cells, encouraging cell renewal and helps to increase circulation. Simply take a spatula full of ‘Sugar Buff’ and spread between your palms of your hands and apply to the skin using circular motions. Sugar Buff contains relaxing essential oils which calm the skin and are also beautifully fragrant. Celery, grapefruit, eucalyptus and lemon are but a few of the incredible ingredients within this product. Did you know celery is a fantastic tonic for dealing with fluid retention and grapefruit is a fragrant anti-bacterial that helps to cool the skin as well as act as an anti-inflammatory?
Once you’ve washed away your winter sins and lashed yourself with DUVET you won’t want to wait to bare the results.
