Weekend TLC: 5 Ways to pamper yourself from head to toe

If you were part of the It-crowd yesterday at #BuroTurnsThree, t0day’s guide to a pampering head-to-toe session at home might be helpful for you to recover from last night’s shenanigans. We’ve got everything you need down pat, from hair scrubs to body serums for you to start your week anew:

IGK Low Key Cooling Walnut Scrub

Treat your scalp with IGK’s icy-fresh scrub, filled with sugar and walnut shell powder instead of salt to exfoliate and remove build-up. Thanks to apple cider vinegar, walnut and peppermint oil, your head full of locks will be cleansed, rebalanced and nourished the right way it should after all that copious hairspray for your budge-proof party hairdo. You might just be addicted to the scent: guava, coconut water, pink lotus, midnight violet and vanilla. Yum.


Melvita L’Or Rose Super-Firming Oil

If you want some targeted action while you’re in the midst of your post-shower ritual, massage Melvita’s new firming oil to your body—especially handy on areas that have dimpled skin and stubborn cellulite. Its star ingredient is pink berries and sea buckthorn berries, both great in reducing the appearance of the abovementioned dilemmas. Best part? This fast-absorbing dry oil won’t leave a greasy texture on your skin too. Tip: Apply and massage in circular movements for the best results.


L’Occitane Verbena Icy Body Gel

Beat the heat this weekend with another icy addition to your beauty ritual. L’Occitane’s latest Verbena Icy Body Gel will leave your skin feeling like you’ve taken a (really long) cool shower that’s refreshing to boot. Those who love citrusy scents will enjoy the sparkling verbena fragrance of this gel. If you want to give your senses a jolt, try keeping it in the fridge before use.


REN AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum

REN has released a new body serum that will give you the same benefits to your skin as a face serum would for your face. It is rich in lactic acid, xylitol and probiotic extracts, allowing water molecules that are already in your skin to reach the surface while boosting the skin’s defence barrier. Instead of salts or other course ingredients that body exfoliators usually have, this body serum naturally exfoliates your skin with lactic acid, instantly softening the skin surface to leave a radiant glow.


Diptyque Invigorating Body Balm

Diptyque’s second chapter of The Garden Of The Hesperides has a slew of exciting treats for the beauty lover, but one that would fit the bill this weekend is the Invigorating Body Balm, a moisturising formula that has the melting texture of a dry oil. A revitalizing combination of extracts from Sicilian blood oranges, clementines and lemons make for a perfect denouement to your indulgent session.
