Quick fix

Hydro bath
Baths that use powerful water jets, combined with aromatic oils, special mud and seaweed are good hydrotherapy. The combination of seaweeds, oil and sea salts stimulates blood circulation and leaves the skin feeling soft and fresh.

Massage your skin
Massaging with marine ingredients will add essential nutrients to the skin. It also stimulates circulation and reduces the appearance of cellulite. The result is brighter, refined skin.

Natural moisturiser
Use honey in your bathing water. It leaves your skin smooth, supple and also helps remove tans.

Exfoliate well
Use good quality, preferably natural, hydrating body polish. Look out for a product that has apricot kernels blended with cooling aloe and refreshing spearmint in it.

Proper cleaning matters
Even if you do not use make-up every day, your face needs cleansing. Go for a natural or herbal facial every month.

Use hydrating products
Hydrating cleansing milk can double up as a light moisturiser. Follow it up with a pure and comforting tonic. Look for nourishing and hydrating formulas that help reduce puffiness and dark circles.
