This year, I’ve decide to take good resolutions regarding my bodycare. I take great care of my face, but I tend to neglect my body. My skin is not very demanding and it doesn’t need any particular attention. However, if I want to keep it beautiful for as long as possible, I need to start pampering it right now. I’m telling you all about my daily bodycare routine !
I take at least one shower a day, sometimes two. I know, this is bad, but I workout a lot and sometimes I have no other choice. I simply use small aloe vera soaps that I find in a local shop in Gozo.
Every two days, I scrub my skin with exfoliating gloves. I found mine at The Body Shop and I already talked about them on the blog. My opinion hasn’t changed : they are great ! I barely use any scrub anymore. You put these gloves on and rub them with your regular soap or shower gel before doing big circular movements on your skin. It foams a lot and and it’s perfect to really exfoliate your body. Just be careful if you have a sensitive skin…
Every two days as well, after my scrub, I apply a moisturising product on my body. I use different things. Virgin coconut oil, which is ideal to dim scars or stretch marks. This is also a great anti-aging product and probably one of the best things you can put on your skin. A body butter, at the moment I’m using the almond one by The Body Shop. Or a natural aloe vera gel, especially during summer, when I want something soothing and cooling. I don’t need to moisturise my body skin everyday, this is enough for me.
WHAT ABOUT CELLULITE ?
Finally, I’ve started to use my Cellu Cup again ! This small
torture tool is actually a silicon suction cup that allows you to make powerful massages to get rid of cellulite, by reproducing the palpate-roll technic. You just have to pinch a bit of your skin with the cup and move it all over the area. This is great to have firmer skin, and it really works ! I use my cup everyday, during at least 5 minutes on each area. You need to apply a product, like an oil, to make it slide more easily : I use it with any oily body product, or even under the shower with soap. I don’t believe in anti-cellulite creams, only regular massages and a healthy lifestyle can possibly help you get rid of it.
Don’t worry, a detailed post about this cup is coming really soon !
What are the body products you swear by ? Do you follow a consistent routine ?
