The Liz Earle Beauty Co. launched a new Skin Replenishing Body Balm last month, packed with goodies like shea butter, rice brand oil and black seed extract.
Body beauty is often negelected, as opposed to facial beauty which we do religously every day. But summer is here (well, sort of!) and holidays are beckoning, so it is time to look after your body, pamper it a bit, get rid of the cracked skin, and maybe een indulge in a massage.
Let’s start at home with this new Body Balm, which has a delightful eucalyptus essential oil scent. The hero botanicals in it are West African shea butter, which is highly emollient, Rice bran oil, which is naturally rich in skin-softening essential fatty acids and antioxidants, and black oat seed extract which soothes and supports the skin’s natural barrier.
But, if you are really indulging your body, then grab a 5pm Spa and Beauty offer, and get massaged, exfoliated and moisturised ready for the sun – it is coming, trust me!
First up is a Big Deal at Mademoiselles in Bearsden. It’s for a Full Body Balinese Massage and Exfoliating Scrub for £34. How good is that?
A full body Balinese massage is a deep relaxation therapy like no other – the technique includes gentle and relaxing strokes as well as vigorous pressure-point stimulations. Balinese massage soothes the body as well as the mind, and with the full body exfoliating scrub, the treatment is a decadent 90 minutes. The offer is available Wednesday and Saturdays (and selected Thursdays) until 17th August.
At the Village Spa in Glasgow you could indulge in a Full Body Massage for £59, or perhaps a Salt + Oil Scrub for £35. Both of these treatments will give you just the body prep you need for the coming months. Maybe you will even want to have both of them?
I Am Jen Wilson is a cosy and calm venue based in Jen’s home in Glasgow’s North side. Jen offers an amazing Dynamic Thai massage. This is a fully clothes massage, with gentle movements to relax you and improve your range of movements.
