If there’s one beauty ritual I’ve paid more attention to over the last year, it’s my body care routine. Our skin below the face needs just as much love and care and sometimes targeted treatments too. This is my body care edit of the tried and tested products I love to help firm, tone and refresh all year around.

In my opinion, Sisley do some of the best body products on the market and I love their new Intensive Contouring Care treatment. A super lightweight and fresh gel-in-oil texture that glides and melts onto the skin with a velvety finish. It’s a clever approach designed to adapt to your body clock with firming and toning ingredients by day and extracts to help reduce the appearance of cellulite by night.
A cleverly formulated treatment cream designed to firm and tone the skin on your arms. It stars their patent-pending technology to reduce fluid build up alongside skin-renewing antioxidants, retinol and marine extracts, probiotics and ferments to hydrate and rejuvenate. Skin feels so refreshed and supple and the best part is you can also use this on your neck, hands and decolletage.
Designed to relieve tired legs, this super refreshing and uplifting lotion feels cooling and soothing on the skin. With camomile and arnica, it’s brilliant to use post-workout or after many hours out on your feet/walking the city streets.
This silky smooth body contouring serum delivers rejuvenated, toned and hydrated skin. It has red algae, coffee and centella asiatica alongside nourishing favourites hyaluronic acid, shea butter and marula oil.
I love the Holidermie range – a holistic take on skincare balancing rituals with effective formulations. When I’ve got that extra moment in my body care routine, I enjoy using a body Gua Sha tool like this to help drain lymph fluid and boost circulation. It can help work on water retention and cellulite.
Dry body brushing pre-shower helps reduce water retention and assists your body in its natural drainage flows. If puffiness and fluid retention is something you struggle with, I’d recommend this. Follow long upward brush strokes – from legs to stomach.
