Taking care of your body is not rocket science. You just need to know the ‘usual suspects’, and when to use them.
No summer will be complete without a tan, and the only safe tan is a fake one. Now that St Tropez is available in selected Clicks stores, you really have no excuse.
St Tropez Everyday Body Moisturizer in Light/Medium, R169.99
St Tropez Bronzing Mousse Self Tan, R219
We all have problems that we wish we didn’t have. Stretch marks, cellulite, spots blah, blah, blah. A bit of elbow grease and dedication can shift them.
Yardley Oatmeal Spot Buster Body Spray, R74.95 is the best product idea this season! The spray bottle makes it possible for you to spray that pesky ‘backne’ and have it under control in now time.
In the fight against cellulite and sagging, your two best partners are Nivea Firming Good-By Cellulite Gel-Cream, R79.99 and Sensual Solutions Body Liftox, R985.
Remember that you need to exfoliate once or twice a week to slough away dead skin cells for a silky smooth skin. The best men for the job are Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion, R585; Daily Goodness Cool Down Body Scrub, R33.99 and Africology Body Scrub, R212
Dry skin will never look good, so apply a moisturizer twice a day, every day.
Nivea Firming Body Lotion with Q10 Plus, R44.95
Palmers Shea Butter Formula Body Butter, R63.50
Johnson’s 24 Hour Moisture Face and Body Cream SPF8, R29.95 are budget friendly favourites.
And for the days when a moisturizer is not enough, turn to a body oil. My three current must haves are:
esse Body Oil, R290
Nivea Firming Body Oil with Q10 Plus, R54.95
Nimue Treatment Body Oil, R 566
