I’ve rounded up my favourite body products I simply can’t live without during summer.
Perhaps your skin needs a deep exfoliating to reveal its radiance, or you require a formula to treat breakouts on the body. Maybe you’re looking to build some subtle colour on your body, or need a quick fix to get your feet looking fabulous.
While you wouldn’t use all these products at once, I would suggest keeping them in regular rotation to ensure your skin looks its very best this summer.
Talk about a power couple! It’s best to use the Environ Body Essentail A Derma-Lac Lotion & Body Oil together for outstanding results.
Derma-Lac Lotion is a multi-use exfoliating lotion that uses Alpha Hydroxy Acids to treat rough, dry & sun-damaged skin.
The Body Oil contains vitamins A, E & C that nourish, normalise, brighten & provide antioxidant benefits.
Combine a few drops of the lotion with a few drops of the oil & apply to the whole body. After application, look forward to the softest, smoothest, super nourished skin.
Tip: The Derma-Lac Lotion is brilliant at preventing & treating ingrown hair on the bikini line!

When it comes to my legs & underarms, I prefer shaving. I find it easier & more convenient than other hair removal options.
The Skinny Tan Body Glow Gradual Tanning Lotion Medium R295 (BUY) is a tanning moisturiser that not only hydrates the skin, but also contains a hint of self-tan active to take the edge off pale, pasty looking skin.
It’s the perfect choice for first time self-tanners because it gradually builds a medium tan & you apply it daily as you would a body moisturiser. You can be assured of a streak-free tan with this formula that has a delicious coconut & caramel scent.
I like applying this formula every second day until I reach my desired tan shade.
With Skinny Tan Body Glow, there’s no reason NOT to glow, girls!
The Vitaderm Advanced Actives Firming Treatment Cream R743 (BUY) is ideal for use on the neck, décolleté, arms & hands. It’s highly recommended as an anti-ageing treatment for skin lacking vibrancy & firmness.
The formula contains a cocktail of oligo & tetra peptides coupled with hyaluronic acid which ensure deep hydration as well as superficial suppleness.
I love how effective this treatment cream is & how great my skin looks & feels after using it. The formula is cruelty free, contains no mineral oil, parabens or artificial colour & is fragrance free, meaning it’s a great choice for even the most sensitive skins.
Think of the Skin Republic Foot Repair Mask R58 (BUY) as a Facial for the Feet.
The formula contains shea butter, ginkgo biloba, green tea, peppermint & seaweed extract to intensely nourish rough, dry feet & heels.
To use: Apply to clean feet. Tear open sachet & remove booties. Place feet inside (ensuring your feet are inside the inner layer). Wear for 15-20 minutes, then remove. Do not rinse & massage any leftover formula into the feet.
If you’re looking for a formula to help with breakout on the neck, back, shoulders & chest, try the Lamelle Active Body Clarity Spray R470 (BUY)
It contains Lamelle’s new “Active” formulation that reduces both both inflammatory & non-inflammatory pimples. It has been shown to improve acne breakouts on the body by 86% when used over an 8-12-week period.
The formula contains Salicylic & Azelaic Acid, Niacinamide & panthenol.
Spritz a moderate amount onto affected areas after cleansing and drying the skin. Massage in to aid absorption & spread the product. Use morning & evening.
The Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or R525 (BUY) is an instant fix to beautify the skin.
This sensorial, shimmering version of the iconic Huile Prodigieuse contains golden mineral particles that illuminate the skin with a gorgeous glow and subtle sheen. Like the original, it can be used on body, face & hair to nourish and illuminate.
The unique dry oil texture has a non-oily feel and the fragrance has beguiling notes of Orange blossom, Magnolia and Vanilla.
It’s worth a mention that 98.1% of the ingredients in this formula are of natural origin.
Tip: Apply a few drops to your foundation to add some subtle illumination to the skin.
