To prep skin prior to hydration, massage Chantecaille Bamboo and Hibiscus Exfoliating cream into the face and neck. For targeted treatment of the lips use Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip balm to exfoliate and soften.

Beauty notes —

Pre shower, use the Morihata Binchotan Body Scrub towel to remove any dead or dry skin from the body. In the shower use REN Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body polish to energise the skin and invigorate the senses.

“As we age the cell turnover slows down. By exfoliating you re-stimulate that cell turnover bringing fresh healthy cells to the surface which improves skin texture and appearance.” – Anna Field, Director, The Paddington Beauty Room

Beauty notes —

To increase blood flow and circulation use the The Body Shop Cactus brush pre-shower, starting from the feet and moving in large sweeping circles towards the heart. For when skin is in need of an extra exfoliation, scrub the body in the shower using Frank Body Original Coffee scrub.

“As important as exfoliating is it should be seen as a preparation towards treatment not ‘the treatment’. When exfoliating it does remove the dead cells however it also removes the skins natural protection and lubrication. Therefore applying a treatment by way of a moisturizer or mask is a must.” – Anna Field, Director, The Paddington Beauty Room
