Body image is a topic that is perpetually on the forefront of many individuals’ minds. Even when you push it to the back of your mind, it will find any opportunity to remind you of its presence. Even those you look to as inspiration for fitness, likely have/continue to battle with body confidence. It’s because we live in a world that is built around the idea of ‘perfection’. The problem there is, to different people, their idea of perfection in a person varies. What ultimately matters, is not what others think of oneself, it is how you feel in your skin. Whether you want tattoos, long hair, short hair, lip fillers or washboard abs, it is your body and ultimately, your choice what you do with it.
For some of us here, we are working on our Summer bodies and thanks to 2020 we have been able to bide more time to achieve them. We have put together some products from our beauty section that will be able to help you in firming, smoothing or scrubbing your way to the body you’re after. With this said, it’s important to mention that beauty products alone will not tone your body or shed weight. The products will do their hard work, but it has to be complemented by a balanced diet and regular exercise. Now, who’s ready to unleash their inner goddess?!
Our multifunctional balm has Longan fruit seed extracts which block the “yo-yo effects” of the skin tissue. The Yo-Yo De-activator, by Phlov, has anti-cellulite, draining and modelling properties thanks to the formulation of Stevia leaves and Yerba mate. We recommend using this product either after a workout or before going to bed. Massage it into areas of cellulite or excess fat on the body and make sure to wash your hands afterwards.

Massage Take Control, Babe to areas affected by stretch marks regularly to reduce the visibility of pre-existing stretch marks, reduce new ones and improve the quality of the skin.
