SKNLogic Renew Footbalm

Renew FootbalmAbout six months ago my paws got hold of a foot balm from SKNLogic and following this, I received another footbalm from SKNLogic in a goodiebag from #BWB. I had not yet used the first footbalm given to me in December last year at an end of year function because I was busy using another. Anyway, roll on winter time 2014 which is peak season for me to do some serious foot/heel TLC before embarking on a whirlwind overseas adventure and I quickly grabbed my stash of SKNLogic foot balms. I have been using it religiously once a day after showering/bathing and if I’ve had a long day in heels a good slap of this wonderful stuff on my feet before bed is just what is needed! In a short and sweet summary – my feet feel fabulous!

I have just started on my second footbalm after cutting the tube open of my first one because I didn’t want to waste any of the amazing moisturising concuction which soothes sore feet (especially after long days of plodding along in heels).

The SKNLogic Renew footbalm contains amazing ingredients like cucumber extract which hydrates while removing dead skin cells, Vitamin E which protects the skin assists with maintaining the skins oil balance, Orange Oil which works as anti-inflammatory and improves the skins elasticity, Shea Butter providing intense hydration, accelerates healing and soothes the skin, Fig Extract which promotes new cell growth and hydrates regulating trans-epidermal loss and not forgetting the sunflower oil, wheat germ oil and steric acid.

The SKNLogic brand is growing on me, even more so when I learnt that the products are manufactured locally in South Africa with packaging and printing being done here too. If they are not an incentive to support local, then I don’t know what is. To find out more and view their other products visit their website, Facebook and Twitter @SKNLOGIC.

 

The Renew Footbalm retails for R85 (75ml) and is available at salons and spas nationwide.

Guest Contribution : Six Beauty Tips to Add Glamour in Women’s Grooming

Ever wondered why grooming is so important? You can have that perfect face and those envious curves to die for, but with a sloppy jeans and that 90’s hair-do you can lose out on a lot of things, you never thought you were meant to own in the first place. Beauty most obviously is about being your own self, nobody is asking you to be a plastic, but grooming is what enumerates beauty, it’s more like teaming that red belt with that little black dress. So here’s six beauty tips that would definitely add glamour to your lifestyle:

Sleep Well

The first and the most important beauty tip is to sleep well, for a minimum of 6-8 hours, that ways you would look fresh. It is important not to wake up with exaggerated dark-circles or puffed eyes, if you look fresh, that makes you feel fresh. So you walk into that board room looking just as good as you were may be two years back.

No Revelations

Women love attention, but it is important to attract the right kind of attention, you don’t obviously want to get mugged. So avoid revealing dresses under all possible circumstances, appear tact and not desperate. Wear properly fitted clothes, with body lines that suit your body-types. Wear what makes you comfortable and respectable.

Mmmmm… Fragrance

It is pivotal for a woman to smell nice, you cannot go out there looking like Angelina Jolie and smelling like a mule. Obviously, not everybody can afford the Chanel No 5, but that does not mean that none of the other perfumes are worth it. Pick out a fragrance that defines you as a lady- summary, sweet and naughty. Avoid perfumes with strong alcohol content and do not apply them directly on skin. Oh and your neck and that wrist, mandatorily requires a sprinkle before a night-out.

 Accessorize it Right

Accessories play a very important role in defining you. Mix and match is a concept which hardly ever goes wrong, but remember do not end up looking like a junk-box. Keep it minimal. It is not always mandatory to accessorize yourself, however a sling bag and a belt is hardly something one can go wrong with.

The Hair and the Make-up

One needs to have an extremely good understanding of how much is too much. The hair and the make-up should be minimalistic and totally based on the place you are supposed to be at. Creating that messy up-do can bring out oomph in the evening party, but would give straight from the bed appearance in the office board-room, not what is expected. For hair, the safest is keeping it straight or rolled into a tact bun, and for daily make-up a little shimmer, soft kohl eyes and a little lip balm should do the trick. Again it’s not always about the skin care products you use, but how you use them.

Comfortable Feet

Lastly, it comes down to the saving grace. Your feet. It is important to moisturize them well, you don’t want them scarred and ugly. When it comes to the shoes you wear, make sure they are comfortable and suited for the place. It does not always have to be high heels, but cannot always be loafers. Pick a shoe that helps you glide and not just walk.

The beauty tips being there, and the skin care products to hide your flaws at their own place, always remember being beautiful is about being confident. Smile a lot, and everything else would just fall into place.
