Body Care Tips: How to Tone and Firm Your Body?
The firmness of skin will change over time
With time or after weight gain, the collagen fibres that once kept tissues firm become impaired, and irrespective of the area on your body, skin starts to slacken. Clarins’ founder Jacques Courtin realised that tackling body firmness not only improved one’s overall appearance, but also one’s confidence level.
Body care solutions for firming skin
The secret to firmer skin is in a dedicated skincare routine! Start by exfoliating once or twice a week as regularly using a body scrub will help boost the effectiveness of products you apply afterwards. The elimination of dead skin cells is crucial as it prepares the skin for firming treatment. Clarins’ Exfoliating Body Scrub softens and stimulates skin cell renewal. Also, the bamboo powder in the body scrub gently exfoliates the skin, leaving it refreshed and moisturised.
2. Choose the right targeted body firming product
Next, find a firming product that suits your needs and apply it daily, as body firming treatments help regain definition. Whether you prefer a lotion, a gel, or a cream, there's a range of different textures to choose from. You may also like to try the Extra-Firming Body Lotion or the Extra-Firming Body Cream, which helps in increasing skin density and elasticity.
3. Take care of your breasts
There are targeted products that tackle specific areas too, such as the Bust Beauty Firming Lotion and the Bust Beauty Extra-Lift Gel. These products focus on bust care, effectively firming and toning the bust area. Not only is it great for ageing skin, it’s suitable for new mothers who are dealing with postpartum sagging breasts. Targeted products are highly recommended if you want to see visible results on these specific areas.
4. Moisturise and targeted treatment with body oils
Finally, other than body lotions and gels, treatment oils are also effective in toning and improving skin elasticity while sculpting your curves. You can opt for Clarins’ Tonic Body Treatment Oil which is made from 100% plant extracts such as Rosemary, Geranium and Mint. As soon as you get out of the shower, apply a few drops of the oil to wet skin and massage gently before rinsing with cold water. This treatment oil is also recommended for women during pregnancy as it helps in reducing stretch marks and leaves the skin soft and nourished.
