There is nothing new about the antioxidant power harnessed in tropical fruit, but once stacked with vitamin C and lycopene, it's a game changer for dry skin.
What is it?
Guava infused body products not only flood the skin with potent vitamin C they help boost the skin’s immunity. This delicate, tropical fruit is also rich in magnesium known to relax the body’s nerves and muscles, here are two must-haves to add to your skincare lineup.
Pure Fiji Coconut Guava Sugar Rub, $67
If you have not discovered the healing power of this sugar scrub, get one in your shower. The combination of coconut oil and sugar cane crystals, harvested in Fiji, not only buff your skin smooth, but the alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) further lift off dead skin and any of that post-summer faux tan. Once the blend of virgin coconut, dilo, macadamia, and sikeci oils hit the skin, this scrub becomes a game changer for anyone who needs a hydrating hit on the skin.
How to use it?
On wet skin you massage this rub into the skin until the sugar granules dissolve, and then rinse off the excess. It leaves the skin feeling nourished, and looking glowy - promise. This tub will give you at least 18 treatments - and don't forget to stand the tub the shower before use. Running hot water over it in winter it helps to melt the coconut oil and ignite the delicious guava oil that will fill the room with a heady tropical scent.
Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Mist in Guava Infusion, $30
I am addicted to spritzing my skin, and the addition of ngi grass in this mist keeps the skin hydrated for hours. I use it after moisturising my skin and body, you can expect the same delicious tropical scent on the skin as the rub, but with a powerful shot of hydration.
How I use it?
I like to keep this mist in the fridge and use it first thing after my morning shower. It’s also great to keep it by the bed on these hot, humid nights to hydrate and cool.
