Top-to-toe beauty tools
How many tools would you say you use on your face every day? When you consider your make-up brushes, tweezers, sponges and facial cleansing brush – it does add up to quite a few. And if you are using all these things, bravo and job well done, but are you paying this much attention to your body?
Yes, we’re all a little guilty of forgetting about our lower thirds every now and then. It’s an easy habit to get into, especially considering our faces usually take all the spotlight and in winter we’re mostly covered up from the neck down. But by the time summer rolls around we may regret not paying attention to the rest of our body. So show your body just as much love as your face by enlisting the help of these handy tools:
You may have heard of dry body brushing before, and this is the tool that will help you do it. Made from 100 per cent natural bristles, this brush will help to increase circulation and improve the appearance of the skin. Use it on bone-dry skin either before or after a shower, buffing away in gentle circular motions. The long handle and detachable head make it super-easy to reach every inch of your body.
The thing I personally neglect most on my body are my toes, especially in winter when I live in boots. I often forget to trim my toenails, and when it comes to painting them, I usually just slap the brush all over and end up covering most of my toes in polish. So this kit serves as the perfect reminder to take the time to properly trim, shape and paint my toenails. The foam separator is my favourite; it keeps my toes in line and ensures there’s no chance of them creeping over and smudging each other.
Permanent. Hair. Reduction. Do I really need to say any more? If you’re sick of waxing, shaving and plucking, this device will help reduce hair growth permanently and all in the comfort of your own home. “Using this device is so very easy and convenient as well as much less painful than waxing ever was. It has made hair removal so much more convenient and long lasting. For anyone wondering if this device actually works, it certainly does and the results get better with constant use over time.” –BH member Michelle240

Nobody likes ingrown hairs and exfoliating properly is one of the best ways to prevent them.
