With the festive season well and truly over, the January slump is in full force. If, like us, you spent December indulging in your fair share of cheese, chocolates and pigs in blankets - not to mention a mulled wine or two - you’re more than likely suffering the after effects. So why not do something different this January and take some positive steps to beat the blues.


Investing in products that nourish and cleanse the body properly is important. There are so many simple additions you can incorporate into your lifestyle to remedy dull, tired skin whilst toning, tightening and refreshing problem areas. Taking active steps now and implementing a routine you can uphold is a sure-fire way to keep your skin looking its best all year round.




Exfoliate to Energise


Did you know that you should exfoliate your body as often your face? Incorporating a salt scrub into your bathing routine 2-3 times a week will work wonders to encourage the natural process of cell regeneration; shedding dead skin cells to brighten, balance and refresh.


The  Body Buffer from our Spa range is ideal for this. Formulated with an invigorating blend of crushed Walnut Shell, Papaya Enzymes and Shea Butter, it works to improve the appearance of imperfections as well as brightening, balancing and softening the skin. Remember, a little bit goes a long way when it comes to exfoliator and it’s important to be gentle to avoid damaging the surface of the skin.


Tighten & Tone


Whether you’re making an effort to improve your health and wellbeing this year or you simply want to tackle your imperfections, adding specialised products, like our Super Sculpt Body Lotion, to your regime promises to enhance the process.


Tackling a variety of body concerns, including cellulite, bloating, water retention and dehydration, Super Sculpt is the perfect addition to your bathroom cabinet. Our intelligent combination of active ingredients instantly gets to work to not only lift and tone problem areas but reduce the appearance of unwanted cellulite and fight signs of premature ageing. Skin is refined and elasticity restored to help you feel more confident in your skin. Trust us when we say, if you only buy one body care product this year – make it the Super Sculpt!


Treatments to treat yourself!


The best way to gain and maintain skin radiance is to call in the experts. Incorporating professional treatments into your body care regime will help you achieve the best results – and they don’t have to break the bank! At MONU, our skincare experts have developed an impressive portfolio of treatments to rejuvenate and detoxify the skin and the results they produce are easily sustainable with the right homecare.


For pure indulgence, we recommend the Body Boosting Detox Wrap. This unique treatment delivers an immediate tightening and toning effect, balancing skin tone and restoring hydration in the process. Incorporating the invigorating properties of the MONUspa Slim Gel, which is applied to the body and layered with compression bandages, the Detox Wrap has been designed to promote inch loss and reduce the appearance of cellulite by stimulating the circulation and draining excess fluid. Our refreshing blend of Sweet Fennel, Seaweed and Witch Hazel helps to refine and cleanse the skin whilst dirt, grime and toxins are removed. This is best used in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise regime.


Similarly, if you’re looking to inject some energy into dull, lifeless skin, why not opt for the Lime and Walnut Wrap. Developed to revive the skin, this treatment combines a blend of citrus Essential Oils to massage the body, plus Body Buffer to exfoliate and refresh. The combination of Lime, Walnut Shell and Shea Butter works to polish skin tone and promote cell regeneration before the body is cocooned in a comforting foil wrap. Once the wrap is removed, skin is sure to feel both detoxified and refreshed whilst signs of ageing and imperfections are reduced.


It really is that simple! With just a few additions to your bodycare routine, you can make 2018 the year you achieve the best skin of your life.
