Loving this Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet from The Body Shop at the moment.
Helps mattify your skin (so it doesn’t get oily) I keep this in my fridge and put it on first thing after I have washed my face.
The coolness especially in this heat is amazing.
Vitamin E can speed up cell regeneration, which can create an anti- ageing effect, making skin look younger. Brilliant to help prevent sun damage, acne, scars and wrinkles.
Love this latest addition to The Vitamin E Range from The Body Shop.
A question I am often asked is how do I have smooth skin on my hands and lift?
I do take care of them as no one wants a massage that feels like it’s being done with sandpaper 🙂
My 3 musts that work for me are:
- Hemp Hand Protector from The Body Shop is an amazing hand cream. Skin is transformed after using it and no greasy residue. I use this when I wake up, after I lift and before bed. Sometimes extra if a deadlifting day
- Liquid Chalk. Helps my grip to.
- Wrist Straps when required which is usually when I am doing walking lunges or deadlifts. Using some pretty decent weights then
Your skin is the largest organ of your body and on this page we will look at ways of looking after it.
Hydration is a key pointer in this.
Researchers disagree on how much water we should consume to stave of dry skin.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that as a minimum women should drink 9 cups of plain water a day and men should drink 13 cups of plain water a day, so around the 2 litre mark as a start point.
If you struggle with drinking plain water? Get a tall glass add a slice of lemon and pour hot water over it. It’s a lovely replacement for a hot drink.
