We’ve just past solstice so that means one thing…It’s officially Summer here in the UK!
Now is the time to get out that palm print dress, slip on those sandals and head to the coast. There’s just one issue, most of us have been hiding under layers of clothing for the last few months leading to dry, dull skin. I live in trousers and jeans so I feel the neglect, however it’s nothing that a little pamper and prep won’t sort.
- First things first – hair removal, this needs to be done asap with which ever method you prefer.
- Next indulge in a good exfoliator and buff away those dead skin cells and reveal some healthy skin
- Lastly moisturise, this is an important factor in maintaining the healthy appearance and hydration of the skin. Unlike the previous steps this needs to be done daily for optimum results. As there’s more than one skin type and areas of concern it requires different products.
For energised uplifted skin try the improved formulas of Nivea Q10 Firming Body Lotion and Nivea Q10 Firming Body Moisturiser. Both enriched with 3 effective ingredients for energised skin, the “Energy Complex” includes Coenzyme Q10, Creatine and L-Carnitine.
If pesky cellulite is your nemesis try the Nivea Q10 Firming Good-bye Cellulite Cream and Nivea Q10 Firming Good-bye Cellulite Serum. Infused with the same “Energy Complex” plus the addition of Natural Lotus Extract which in vitro tests show to reduce the formation of new fat cells.[message_box title=”The Science” color=”white”]
Q10 plays a key role in the body being responsible for cell protection and effective production of the body’s energy. Acting as an anti-oxidant, Q10 absorbs free radicals protecting cells from the oxidative stress that causes skin ageing.
Creatine plays an important role for healthy skin. Naturally found in the body and is particularly important for the energy metabolism of the cells. This energy helps the skin function effectively supporting the regeneration of connective tissue and cells, as the number of these cells being regenerated drops skin loses shape and wrinkles form.
L-Carnitine is a form of antioxidant that generates energy from fatty acids.[/message_box]
