The quick fix to a hot summer bod

by Saisha Potts on

We all want firm, toned skin that leaves us looking to-die-for when we slip into a slinky little number at the beach. But if you’re anything like me, slimming down is hard work, all the dieting and exercise is tiring. We ladies have now been afforded the blessing of a helping hand from Mother Nature herself – thank you!

The almond tree and its ability to develop sap as soon as winter ends, encouraging the buds to grow, can also help stimulate drainage within our own skin, giving us a visibly slimmer, re-sculpted figure – just in time for summer.

L’Occitane is using the technology of Mother Nature herself in its latest Almond Collection. An eclectic mix of lotions, scrubs, soaps and body treatments all aid the firming and toning process – not forgetting of course the gorgeous scent that these little miracle workers have.

So how does it work?

The active ingredients help to eliminate fat thanks to their draining properties, combined with an advanced plant complex that helps to break down fatty deposits – sounds perfect!

The collection also contains silicium that helps to stimulate collagen production; tightening and firming the skin. Finally the almond extracts help to tone and lift the skin leaving you looking beach ready.

All-in-one summer bod: Shaping delight gel-cream

Applying this gel cream to the legs, bum and tum can visibly help to tone and define your silhouette. The lotion absorbs to the skin beautifully with a velvety consistency leaving your skin feeling silky smooth. The scent is also really fresh getting you in a summer mood – even if it is pouring it down outside.

Serious spoiling: Milk concentrate

Spring is the time us ladies start thinking about pampering and preening our skin ready for those bare-all summer outfits, but this little lotion will leave your skin looking delectable and feeling indulged all year round. The milk concentrate is creamy, encasing your skin in layers of luxurious hydration.

Trust us, this little formula leaves your skin feeling soft, nourished, smooth and firm – what more could you want? So what are you waiting for? Invite the girls round for a few glasses of your favourite tipple and crack open the milk concentrate for some serious spoiling.
