Women's Health (South Africa) - - CONTENTS - BY GOTLHOKWANG ANGOMA- MZINI

We know there is a lit­tle prep work needed be­fore go­ing full Ver­gara (see our smok­ing cover). You’ve du­ti­fully done your lunges, booked your mani, pedi and wax and even swapped out the gum­mies for a healthy piece of fruit. Now, we’re go­ing to help you take it to the next level... Get ready to feel sexy AF in your own skin.

THE BEAUTY FACTORY GEN­TLY EX­FO­LI­AT­ING BATH SCRUB (R130) Scrubs are a great gift to your skin! Grab a hand­ful of sugar scrub and mas­sage it into your en­tire body for a soft and hy­drated ef­fect. The com­bi­na­tion of but­ter­scotch, rose­mary and chamomile works to stim­u­late blood flow and fight anx­i­ety and stress... Aaah!

ELANCYL SLIM DE­SIGN (R395) Said to smooth cel­lulite and firm and hy­drate skin, the slim-de­sign for­mula is syn­chro­nised with the body’s bio­rhythms, so the slim­ming ac­tive in­gre­di­ents are re­leased at the best time of the day. It con­tains a caf­feine com­plex, which spikes cir­cu­la­tion and tem­po­rar­ily shrinks fat cells for a vis­i­ble smooth­ing of the skin. Layer it on, then fo­cus on more im­por­tant things. Like check­ing your­self out.

NUXE MULTI-PUR­POSE DRY OIL WITH GOLD SHIMMER (R330) This multi-us­age dry oil gives a golden shimmer to your body, face and hair. It con­tains a va­ri­ety of plant oils (in­clud­ing bor­age, hazel and sweet al­mond) and vi­ta­min E to nour­ish in a sin­gle swipe. We’re not go­ing to lie – the shimmer will com­pel you to strip down. Best part? It won’t trans­fer onto your clothes.

BIO-OIL TIS­SUE OIL (R100) Dull skin, stretch marks, scars – we’ve all got ’em. Ap­ply this oil twice daily, mas­sag­ing gen­tly in a cir­cu­lar mo­tion un­til fully ab­sorbed, to get softer, more sup­ple skin. Plus this oil can im­prove the appearance of pig­men­ta­tion marks and blem­ishes. Con­fi­dence? Check!

SKIN689 FIRM­ING EMULSION FOR UP­PER ARMS (R625) Dare we say toned arms in a bot­tle? This num­ber con­tains cro­cus-bulb ex­tract, which stim­u­lates the skin’s col­la­gen and elastin pro­duc­tion, and ar­gan-tree ex­tract, which tight­ens, firms and de­fines skin con­tours, while shea but­ter and sweet al­mond oil nour­ish.

CLAR­INS EAU DYNAMISANTE (R520) This is a treat­ment fra­grance that tones, re­ju­ve­nates and leaves the skin mois­turised and lightly scented. Just list­ing the cit­rus and co­rian­der notes does this per­fume a dis­ser­vice be­cause it’s so much more – a re­fresh­ing, re-en­er­gis­ing scent that’ll wake you up and cool you down.

L’OCCITANE AL­MOND RE­FIN­ING CON­CEN­TRATE (R850) This body lo­tion ef­fi­ciently fo­cuses on tar­get­ing those ar­eas you usu­ally wanna hide – thighs, butt, tum – as well as the appearance of dim­pled-look­ing skin. How? It con­tains pressed al­mond ex­tract and pure caf­feine to firm and soften skin. Plus, it’s de­li­ciously fra­grant.
