Skin Care: BODY

Sunday, 10 February 2013

Since the start of the new year I've been trying my best to watch what I eat by cutting down on carbs and majorly increasing my protein intake by eating lots of Salmon and Tuna. I've also been replacing my week day lunches with the Maxitone Sculptress strawberry Protein shake on the days I train at the gym.

Equally as important as gyming it and maintiaing a healthy balanced diet, I think taking the time to pamper your skin and give it the TLC it deserves should be on all of our radars! That's why I decided to test out a few body care treats and share the results with you. 

Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub For a New Skin 
Officially the first essential beauty step in improving the softness and look of your skin. This exfoliating body treatment promises to eliminate the dull appearance of the skin and is the most ideal scrub to use before applying anti- cellulite gels or creams as it prepares the skin properly and gets your fat cells/tissue moving!
Bamboo powders gently exfoliate the skin revealing almost brand new skin (well that's what it feels like!) whilst extracts of Mimosa Tenuiflora and shea soothe and protect the skin. Simply apply to dry or damp skin and in circular movements apply to your entire body, paying particular attention to stubborn cellulite prone areas and extra dry areas like the elbows and knees. This is great for pre tanning too!



 Clarins High Definition Body Lift 
This special body contouring cream-gel contains 8 plant extracts and a patented formula to ensure 'high definition' results. I don't tend to have much faith in anti-cellulite creams but after reading review after review about this product I had to test it out over a good amount of time to see if it does what it says on the tin (or tube in this case).
I've been using this cream-gel every night for a month and I can confirm I can see a noticeable difference in the appearance of my upper legs and thighs!! Shock horror and probably unbelievable to most of you.... I know any woman reading this will be like I would probably be reading this and not totally believe me. It's one of those you have to 'try it to see for yourself' products. What I like most about this product is the way it instantly cools your skin upon application and the fact you can almost feel the micro-spheres melting into your skin. Also, it absorbs super quickly so you can get dressed literally straight away, ideal.


Priori Hand and Body Revitalizing Lotion (perfect for both young and matured skin!)

Priori's Hand and body reviatlizing lotion is a luxuriously silky treat for your body that our skin is craving especially during these arctic weather conditions!
This product leaves your skin feeling hydrated and SO lovely and soft, it absorbs quickly so is great for us busy working women! We simply don't have time to sit around waiting for our body lotions to dry!
Combining LCA complex and AHA ingredients this product suits all skin types and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (I'm starting this anti-ageing process in my twenties to prevent ever ageing!! haha). You honestly feel like your rubbing pure goodness and vitmanins into your skin by using any of the Priori skincare range, its so natural.
I would highly reccomend this to slightly aged skin aswell as it being ideal for younger skin to prevent ageing. Already aged skin will take to this product very well as the LCA complex is a unique blend of pH balanced lactic compound (lactic acid and sodium lactate) with multi-functional antioxidant sequence which contains essential vitamin antioxidants which create optimal skin health.  


I hope you enjoyed this post and now know which products to give your skin the TLC it deserves! We need to prepare to bare our skin this spring/ summer!!
