Flames, isn’t it almost ridiculous how models always seem to have that luscious skin, all year round, even in winter, which comes visible when they flash the tiniest bit of skin in those glossy magazine photographs? Isn’t it almost mean how they still look amazing in those ‘celebrities without their make up’ snap shots?
Frown no longer, Beauty Flame, there are some secrets to juicy and supersoft skin – a few tricks that will make the whole big difference. If you imply these three easy and absolutely affordable things to your daily bathroom routine you should very soon see – and feel – the difference! Let me tell you at this point that models are very accurate when it comes to their beauty routine which is t h e big secret! And you can do the same.
So here are the things that you can do for softer, moisturised and healthy looking skin and at the same time – when really carried out daily – minimise the appearance of cellulite and eliminate unnecessary water retention from the skin tissue.
Don’t bathe in soap – bathe in milk and lotion! As a matter of fact soap will dry out your skin. You may add a little soap to your bath but how about trying a mix of one part of body lotion (make sure it’s a superb organic product!) and one part of shower gel. For super silky skin add one part of organic body oil – for example avocado or coconut oil additionally to the water. For a special treat do as Cleopatra did and add 1-2 litres of milk to your bath, using low fat milk. I won’t tell you to skip the body lotion afterwards – but you should really try this out and feel the difference!
Scrubs? Yes, please! Nothing is as vital for soft skin as regular scrubs. Whether you use ready made products or keep it natural as I do – I use Himalayan salt, in which I also bathe to reduce water retention, which is helpful for leaner and slimmer legs - good exfoliation is so vital as it stimulates blood circulation.This does not only remove dead skin cells but is a key factor in preventing cellulite, it will keep your skin young and smoothe. I do exfoliation once a week, each time before sun bathing and after sauna. For natural scrubs sugar can be used too, it’s just a question of personal preferences. To make sure your scrub isn’t too harsh on your skin you can simply mix one parts of natural oil (avocado, coconut or olive oil ) with two parts of either sugar or salt.
I never go without my bath glove. Wether I bathe or shower I use my bath glove on a daily basis, to massage the tissue of my thighs, buttocks and belly for a few good minutes. I’ve done it like that for years now and I would have regretted it by now if I didn’t. There is a few things that you can do for a toned body silhouette: working out, eating right, drinking plenty of water – and massage! Never unederestimate the power of bath gloves, bath mitts and exfoliation sponges. Besides massages have the beautiful side effect of boosting the overall wellbeing – nothing is as beautiful as a happy and confident woman who is well balanced.
I am just recovering from a flue, hence the quiet from my side the past days. Having said that, I think I am better off now for a luscious bath! Feel free to drop me any questions in the comment box – and until the next time:
Happy bathing, Flames and don’t forget: just be drop-dead gorgeous!
