Make this new year one of transformation, not just at work or home, but in how you take care of YOU.
We believe that an important part of self-care is loving the skin you’re in. When you look good, you feel good. Which is why this year is the perfect time to invest in your skin. This doesn’t need to be complicated or time consuming. In fact, it could actually be fun!
To get started, we’ve put together a few simple skincare hacks for you to try in the comfort of your home, using your fave LUX Beauty Bar or Body Wash.
Hack 1 - Body Scrub
Exfoliating is key! It’s the best way to get rid of excess oil, dead skin cells and dirt from your pores. To make your own unique exfoliating body scrub all you need is one cup of granulated sugar (the coarser, the better) and half a cup of your favourite LUX Body Wash. Mix them together, store it in a glass jar, and give your skin a good scrub once a week.We’d recommend using our LUX Skin Detox Body Wash. It’s infused with Tea Tree Oil known to cleanse and detox your skin - giving your scrub some extra goodness!
Hack 2 - Soothe Insect Bites
With more insects like mosquitoes out and about during summer, it’s hard to avoid those annoying bites that leave your skin itchy and inflamed. A quick trick to help ease the itch is with your nearest LUX Beauty Bar. Simply dip the end of the beauty bar into a little water, shake off the excess and rub it over your bite. The soap will gently soothe your skin, whilst relieving the itchiness - PLUS you’ll be left with a luxurious smell.
Hack 3 - Body Spritz
Sometimes a sprinkle or spritz of water is all your skin needs to cool off, especially during the hot summer months!
For your own homemade body spritz, combine 3 quarters of ice-cold water and 1 quarter of your fave LUX Body Wash in a spray bottle. For an extra boost of moisture and a radiant glow try LUX Glowing Skin with pure honey and Lotus. Shake it well and give your skin a spray throughout the day to stay refreshed and hydrated.
Hack 4 - Foot Scrub
Last, but not least, a quick fix to smooth and soften dry heels or skin on your feet is a customised sugar scrub. Grab your favourite fragrance LUX Beauty Bar and grate it into a jar or container. Combine it with 1 cup of granulated sugar and two tablespoons of coconut or olive oil (whichever you prefer). Store in a cool, dry area and use once or twice a week to give your feet the TLC they need.
