The office, kids, husband, friends, extended family… As women we juggle so many balls, often neglecting the most important ball – ourselves. During the month of August, BeautySA
will be celebrating all things 'women', and today we're kicking off with pamper products guaranteed to help you relax and connect with your inner goddess.
Set aside 45 minutes for a luxurious rub in the tub
. Begin by setting the mood with SOiL's Soy Wax Melts in Balancing Rose Geranium
for eight pieces. The all-natural aroma is infused with pure organic essential oils. While running your bath, drop in Milky Way Foam Bath Crème by Oh So Heavenly
for 450ml, and let the bubbles melt away the tension. Then once you're ready scrub down, try the enchanting black orchid and juniper oil scent of LUX's new Sheer Twilight Beauty Body Wash
for 400ml or Sorbet's Firming Foam Bath
for 500ml – the Age-Control's pomegranate, rooibos, cranberry oil and Q10 ingredients make it perfect for a pre-spring spa experience.
Follow your bath with a rub down
of Oh So Heavenly's Scentsensations Viva la Vanilla body lotio
Treat your hands
We sometimes forget our hands are actually part of our bodies. Small oversight, we know. If you're a fan of either banana or coconut scents, you can have the best of both worlds with LCN's Banana Rama Hand Cream
Nothing's as relaxing as a massage
I don't think I've ever met a woman who doesn't enjoy a massage after a stressful day. And Dermalogica
has the perfect remedy – their Stress Relief Treatment Oil
for 100ml, is an aromatic as well as a deluxe skin treatment. SOiL also has an organic blended massage oil in the Relaxing range (a blend of lavender, ylang-ylang and geranium), R80 for 100ml. Environ's Enhanced Vitamin A, C & E Body Oil
, price varies by salon, helps energise dry
and/or sun damaged skin.
Unfortunately we don't live in a perfect world, and even spending an hour on ourselves can sometimes seem like impossible. So what would BeautySA advice be without a little cheat-sheet? If you find yourself starved of time, you can fake a pamper session with a refreshing body mist. LCN's Cool Down Prickling Ice Spray
, turns into a foam during application and nurtures hot feet and tired legs with its provitamin B5. AHAVA's Deadsea Plants Dry Oil Body Mist
for 100ml, will charge your skin with natural goodness using its combination of Dunaliella algae extract, vitamins and minerals.
