Boost your body care | An expert guide

The mirrors in our lives generally finish at our shoulders, so it’s no surprise we tend to focus daily attention on our face. But, of course our bodies need the same care and attention. Follow our body care guide – treating the skin on your body as you would your face – and discover for radiantly soft and supple skin day in, day out.

Tough work

Unlike the face, which is generally fine and delicate, the skin on the body is thicker so scrubs can be a little more vigorous and intensive to smooth off rough, dry patches, polish away dullness, stimulate circulation and reveal fresh plump cells.

Preparing the skin for all the nourishing benefits of deep hydrators, treat your body to daily exfoliation and improve tone – we love our intensely uplifting Invigorating Body Reviver each morning, with our soothing and refining Relaxing Salt Scrub one evening a week.

Follow with a few spritzes of our conditioning Optimal Skin TriSerum (ideal when time is of the essence), or lavish Smooth and Firm Body Butter over skin and reveal soft, supple, beautifully conditioned skin.

Don’t miss out

When it comes to moisturising, not all body parts are created equal. There are some we always remember to lavish (like arms and legs), yet others get forgotten (décolleté, hips and heels).

The skin on the décolleté is delicate and ages faster than other areas so, when moisturising your face, continue this onto the décolleté to help prevent fine lines.

Hips and tummy are prone to stretchmarks so improve elasticity with regular hydration – Pink Hair and Scalp Mud is ideal for this. An intensive moisturiser containing mineral-rich Red Clay and nourishing Apricot Kernel Oil, it keeps skin beautifully soft and supple. Try it too on feet and heels for an overnight makeover!

Make a stand

If you spend a lot of time on your feet, walking or standing, then look for a body moisturiser that will freshen and revive. Cooling and invigorating ingredients like Mint and Citrus found in our Cooling Body Moisturiser will help put the spring back in the step of tired feet and give an extra lift to heavy legs.

A hint of colour

Whether the days are starting to warm, or you’re looking for a weekend boost, enhance your skin with a touch of colour with Gradual Tan Body Moisturiser. Not only does it reveal a healthy-looking tan over four hours, but it contains Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil to hydrate skin.

Essential bodywork

Soothe and ease body and mind once a week with an ESPA Body Ritual using our bath and body oils at home to keep you looking as radiant as you feel.
