Summer is practically on our doorstop and this is the time to pamper your body with nourishing body butters, refreshing shower gels and exfoliating body scrubs. We also need to get in shape to wear a swimsuit and that means a lot of work to be included into your beauty regimen. As the weather warms and the humidity rockets, you would need products that are packed with nutrients that tone and firm the skin, giving you optimal results.

I searched for products that are natural and gentle on the skin and the Africology range is considered the leading natural, eco-friendly and holistic skincare option. To prep the body, the range has a body scrub which is a blend of walnut and marula shell powder that provides a gentle, chemical-free exfoliator. The tiny micro beads are infused with geranium, neroli, sweet orange and lemon essential oils. This gently exfoliates and removes dead skin while nourishing and replenishing moisture and oils back onto the skin, leaving it smooth and moisturized. The vitamins and minerals such as linoleic acid, vitamin A, calcium, potassium, iron and phosphate are penetrated into the skin and this contributes to the general well being of the cell membranes. This body scrub buffs away dry skin and impurities and preps the skin for moisturizing and polishing. The body gel contains yucca to increase cell growth and soothe irritation. Extracts of gentle soapwort cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Aloe ferox soothes and moisturizers the skin, leaving it soft and supple.

It is recommended for all skin types. The easy pump action bottle ensures that there is no wastage and just the exact amount is needed to give the body an overall cleanse and hydrated feel.

The body butter is rich in cocoa butter and shea, which work to soften and protect, while the canola oils heal and repair barriers while soothing inflammation. This thick, quick absorbing cream promotes cell regeneration and blood circulation, which in turn rejuvenates dry and aging skin.

I would recommend that you ditch your ordinary body lotions for this super rich body butter, which leaves your skin feeling moist and silky. The smell of the body wash is also uplifting and invigorating, aiding in feeling relaxed and calm.

If you really want to prep your body for the summer, then you should try the Africology slimming detox cream. This thick formula contains a botanical blend of seaweed, ivy, horsetail (Equisetum), queen-meadow and biting clematis, which are all chosen for their effective slimming and firming action. The cream is also enriched with guarana extract, cysteic acid and pantetheine sulfonate, which trigger cell processes that stimulate the mitochondria to burn excess fat. This detoxing cream is most effective after body brushing or exfoliation.

Since all africology products are fragranced with pure essential oils it is safe to use every day. which should make every bath time feel special. Your body will feel polished, moisturized, smooth and toned after use.
