What to do for body skin tightening at home?
Skin tightening is one of the most common body concerns alongside cellulite and water retention.
Our bodies change over time and especially as we age, our skin tends to be less firm. Hormones, genetics, dryness, poor lifestyle and bad beauty habits can also accelerate this process.
Generally speaking, loose skin is most apparent on the upper arms, inner legs, belly, thighs and buttocks. Do you have stretch marks or can you easily pinch and stretch the skin on those areas? If the answer is yes, then your skin could benefit from our Body Spa ritual. Here's how you can improve skin firmness at home:
WEEKLY BODY RITUAL
Thoroughly exfoliate your skin in the shower on a weekly basis, to stimulate circulation and naturally boost your collagen production. Buffing away dead skin cells will prevent pores from becoming clogged and will allow your skin to breath and regenerate.
Deeply exfoliate your body with our spa exfoliant glove, which will leave your skin softer and revitalised. Your legs in particular should feel lighter and circulation improved (tingling sensation).
DAILY BODY RITUAL
It is important to pay attention to the contents of the products you use most frequently, ensuring they don't contain nasties or harmful ingredients. Most of us shower on a daily basis and it is therefore very important to ensure your shower gel or soap is kind to your skin. Some products on the market can be very harsh, stripping your skin of its protective barrier, leaving it feeling tight and/or dry after your shower.
Our Hydrating Shower Gel is made from a soap-free blend of nourishing oils, that preserves natural moisture and hydrates the skin.
TIP: finish your shower with cold water, it will also help to tone your skin!
Vitamin E helps support the production of elastin, a key protein produced by the body to maintain tight and toned skin.
After your shower apply our Firming Body Oil, made from a dynamic blend of stimulating extracts (coffee, grapefruit, rosemary) and nourishing oils (argan, macadamia, rosehip) to support skin elasticity and deeply hydrating the skin.
