Springtime is on it’s way. If you’re an active soul, that probably means exploring the great outdoors, running in the fresh air and generally pumping up your exercise regime. With less than 60 days to go to the London Marathon, it’s time to start taking simple steps towards self-care, maximising your training and overall well-being over the next few months.
As we age, our body’s natural current begins to gradually slow down, leading to a lack of muscle definition. Building on from the success of the handheld facial device NuFACE, the NuBODY Skin Toning Kit has been clinically proven to improve your skin’s firmness and increase cellular strength, taking body confidence back into your own hands.
If you’re looking to melt away stubborn fatty deposits with the Silk’n Lipo device. This compact device combines Low-Level Light Therapy with Electo-Muscle Stimulation technologies to break down excess fat and drain toxins away by boosting your body’s natural lymphatic drainage system. Coming complete with an adjustable belt, it’s a great way to complement your exercise plan by toning the arms, legs and thighs in just 15 minutes per day.
There’s no doubt that when you step up your exercise plan, you also need to step up your water intake. BKR has created a range of silicone-coated bottles with a fashion-forward design that are available in a range of different colours, encouraging you to keep drinking throughout the day. By drinking just 8 glasses of water per day, you’ll quickly improve your skin’s complexion, flush away toxins, accelerate weight loss and elevate your energy levels. The perfect way to supercharge your daily run.
After finishing an intense training session, it’s incredibly important to relax your muscles and allow your body to fully cool down. Many runners find that their legs feel tight, swollen and tired following their workout. Talika Legs Tonic is a great way to relax and unwind. Based on the concept of meridian pressure points, this compact device gently massages the muscles in your thighs and lower legs to improve blood glow and encourage lymphatic drainage. In just 20 minutes, Talika reduces swelling up to 4 times, providing instant relief.
Continue the soothing massage across your body with the HoMedics Handheld Shiatsu Massager. Mimicking the movements of a trained masseuse, it’s a perfect all-rounder device that can be used across the face, shoulders, back and legs to relieve built-up tension and stress. Simply switch out the massage heads to mix and match techniques, personalising your treatment depending on your needs.
Care for your feet
When you’re spending a lot of time on-the-go, it’s important to make sure your feet are feeling fully pampered. Regular soaks and pedicures can leave your muscles feeling re-energised and invigorated, fully preparing you for your next run. We love the Beurer FB 50 as it relaxes tense muscles with soothing magnetic field therapy. The acu-nodes at the base of the footbath create a powerful reflex massage across 5 water temperature levels – just what you need after a long day.
Wind down your treatment with the Clarisonic Pedi-Buff Foot Smoothing Exfoliant. This effective foot cleansing scrub is suitable for everyday use, boasting an exfoliating formula that softens hard heels and rough, dry skin.
