Autumn beauty bootcamp for your booty

Wednesday, 9th October, 2019 4:37pm

When you pop on the tights, then it’s goodbye temperate autumn days and hello to trousers and covered arms and legs. There is no better time though to try new body products to keep your skin soft and supple and prep for the LBD.

I tend to love a warm bath in winter and try also to tackle the orange peel skin and cellulite during these months. Body care has been around for thousands of years since Cleopatra was bathing in milk in ancient Egypt, and has benefits including improving circulation, stimulating your lymphatic system, releasing serotonin and promoting cell regeneration.

Say hello to the new Dermalogica Body Collection. Featuring exquisite natural scents and innovative formulas with active botanicals, each product in the new collection is meant to invite a moment of quiet reflection as it delights the senses and delivers advanced ingredients for radiant, healthy-looking skin.

Take some me time to enjoy a spa-like experience at home.

Phyto Replenish Body Oil (€57) is as beautiful as the recent face serum and I am so excited that there is an oil for winter. Oil is so much more comforting on dry skin. It is a delicately scented featherweight body oil for glowing skin.

French plum seed oil, avocado oil and sunflower seed oil help protect skin’s lipid barrier. Calming fermented red ginseng calms and nourishes to deliver glowing skin.

Thermafoliant Body Scrub (€47.50) is a dual action warming body exfoliant that energizes and smooths for radiant skin. Indian bamboo stem physically exfoliates to refine skin texture and brighten tone.

Papain (from papaya) and lactic acid dissolve dull, dead cells. Natural sea salt revitalises and hydrates.

A blend of replenishing bio-lipids helps to protect and strengthen skin barrier.

Conditioning Body Wash (€32.50) is perfect for your gym bag. It is richly sensorial, skin-nourishing body wash cleanses, conditions and invigorates. The aromatic oils of French rosemary and Chinese eucalyptus alongside fresh tea tree and lemon oils cleanses skin and awakens the senses.

Let’s tackle cellulite with the Eminence Organic Stone Crop range. The first step to starting the body care routine is buffing and resurfacing with the Stone Crop Revitalising Body Scrub. It carefully polishes skin with raw sugar and invigorates it with rock salt.

This exfoliant lathers into a creamy foam and is infused with healing stone crop, turmeric and antioxidant-rich lemon peel to brighten and smooth while you revitalise.

It comes in a handy tube which is perfect for on-the-go exfoliation. I have rubbed it in dry before the shower, too, for a body brush effect.

The skin on your legs and arms can give away your age just as much as your neck, so the luxurious Stone Crop Contouring Body Cream was created to tone, tighten and help reduce the appearance of cellulite. The blend of lively coffee and clinically-proven microalgae extract smooths skin by targeting fat cells while stone crop, shea butter (the holy grail of dry skin treatment in my humble opinion) and jojoba oil hydrate and nourish.

Hydration is key to healthy looking skin; it looks bouncy and clear when it’s healthy and the stone crop body oil is the perfect lightweight formula that absorbs quickly for a light satin finish to soothe your skin and tired muscles. As it isn’t too shiny it is unisex too. It is beautiful for after the gym and is so soothing.
