When we hear the words skin care, we think face masks, serums and moisturisers, and maybe the occasional acne treatment. But skin care is so much more! The skin is our largest organ and all of it benefits from some TLC, not just the skin on the face!
Body care has come so much further than just moisturisers. Our new performing body care range The Body Edition has taken inspiration from skin care and its active ingredients and does more than just hydrate (even though hydration is still as important as ever!), and cares for skin concerns like cellulite, loose and rough skin.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the dimpled, bumpy skin that we can get on the back of our thighs, hips and buttocks. There are many factors believed to be involved in the formation of cellulite, but diet, lifestyle and hormones are the main ones. A rich diet and a lack of exercise can lead to fat storage which can promote the appearance of cellulite, but hormones and genetics can also play a factor. Cellulite is more common in women, because some naturally store more fat in their thighs, hip and buttock areas. A balanced diet, exercise and some cosmetic products and massage techniques have been proven to help improve its appearance.
How to care for cellulite?
Besides living a healthy lifestyle with daily movement and a nutritious diet, The Body Edition Anti-Cellulite Body Gel is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite in 28 days. It contains the well-known skin care ingredient Niacinamide that helps improve skin elasticity and skin texture. For even better results, make sure to massage your skin while applying the gel.
Sagging or loose skin
It’s common to get loose or sagging skin after weight loss, and it’s also something that happens naturally as we age. If loose skin is something you are bothered by, some things that you can do to improve it are to have a balanced lifestyle and diet and to use skin care. The Body Edition Firming Body Gel Cream is clinically proven to improve skin firmness by 48% in just two months and contains one of our favourite hydrating ingredients Hyaluronic Acid.
Do you have rough, uneven skin texture? You’re not alone! Uneven skin texture is often the result of the build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. If you’ve scrubbed away to no end, we suggest trying a scrub with both physical and chemical exfoliants. The Body Edition Smoothing Body Scrub contains both natural exfoliants from pumice and almond shell, as well as the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Glycolic Acid. Glycolic acid encourages shedding of the outer layer of the skin, which helps remove dry, dead skin cells, revealing fresh new skin cells underneath. Soft skin restored!
