My summer body skincare

Khenz Mabunda

Growing up playing with my brothers left a lot of scars on my skin. Either than that, I have very sensitive skin especially during the summer season. I have tried quite a number of products which did not help any of my two problems until I tried out these three products simultaneously. Here’s my best summer skin steps:

1. Celltone Tissue Oil

Let’s take it to school first!

Celltone tissue oil consists of seven essential oils and snail gel which will help you improve affected areas that need your attention such as:

– Stretch marks
– Scars
– Wrinkles

The oil prevents and reduce the appearance of marks after the estimated time of 28 days of continued use. This statement screams MAINTENANCE! The only way to get your skin looking better is through constant use which lead to constant results. Do not stop because you see the marks fading.

There are times when I would not buy the tissue oil (broke times) but the improvement on my skin never faded. In order to see more results you have to continue applying. My stretch marks are only on my buttocks and it was caused by elasticity. Gaining weight is one of the cause for this and I am a victim to such. This tissue oil has improved my stretch marks within two weeks of use. Now they are gradually fading and the same can be said for my scars. Only the scars take a while. Rumour says the Celltone Gel and Exfoliating Gel work wonders! So that’s my next attempt. If you want to try it out I would suggest you buy the starter pack which comes with all three products. You can find these at Clicks and Dischem.

I am not yet at wrinkling stage but when that time occurs, I sure will comment on how it can help you in that aspect.

How to apply?

You can choose from applying both day and night or once a day.

– Apply all over your body especially on affected areas. Rub the oil in gently.
– For outdoor purposes you will need to apply sunscreen before exposure to the sun.
– Also add to bath to enhance hydration.

2. Nivea Q10 Plus: Goodbye Cellulite Gel

Goodbye Cellulite Gel contains Lotus extract and L-Carnitine. Lotus extract comes from a Lotus Leaf containing all sorts of biological terms confusingly explaining that the leaf is turned into powder to help the skin and it is commonly used for facial products, lotions and body scrubs to name a few. L-Carnitine is actually a substance in your skin which is found in the fat metabolism. Also the gel consists of a cooling effect which leads to an activation of blood circulation. All of these help with reducing the appearance of cellulite on your skin.

If something is heaven sent, it is definitely this gel. You will see the instant difference in those areas you hate so much. Also like the Celltone tissue oil I saw my cellulite fading and my skin getting firmer. I definitely recommend this product especially if wobbly skin is your challenge. I must say it works well when exercising at the same time. It won’t give you the 100% toned results if you do not put in the effort of working out.

How to apply?

– Smoothly apply once a day on affected areas such as buttocks, thighs and stomach.

3. Nivea Q10 Plus: Firming Lotion

Q10 is a component in your skin that keeps it firm. This component decreases with age and the skin becomes less able to renew itself. The Firming Lotion is there to assist you in empowering your skin with energy and strength it needs to remain toned and supple.

The Lotion helps tighten and firm the skin within two weeks of use. I use the Lotion in the picture because of my oily skin. You might have to ask for assistance at the stores if you suffer from dry skin.

4. H2O – this is so cliché but it is no secret that the more water you drink, the better you skin looks!

I know water can be daunting for some of us but you need it! So if you struggle, try drinking from a water bottle, that way you won’t have to count the number of glasses you drank or even worse forget to drink water completely. Your glow will come from the simple intake of water. Most people prefer prepared still water. You can just take tap water, it’s free. So do you boo!

With these three products your skin will never be the same again! If you can, apply them even twice a day for better results. Let me know how it goes and check out my Instagram for improvement pictures.


Perfect white foamy wash

Roxanne Govender

I bought the Perfect white foamy wash online through amazon. I am currently using it and it is fantastic but I cannot seem to locate the product on the official L’Oreal site. I bought the product from a supplier in Thailand. I am in South Africa.

Quick and long lasting results

Angelique Swart

I absolutely love this product and would recommend it to anyone looking to firm up that flabby looking skin.

I started using it just before my wedding and the results were very satisfying, my skin felt smoother and firmer just after 2 weeks of use. This item is affordable which is an extra bonus.

Nice product, but doesnt measure up

Maryanne Young

I hate to give negative ratings to anything Nivea, but apart from being a really nice scented moisturiser, I didn’t notice a difference in the firmness of my skin. The packaging is nice and practical,it is a white bottle with the signature Nivea navy accents and a big yellow Q10 energy plus on the front as this variation contains an energy complex. The one I bought is for normal skin. I did love the scent, it is the familiar Nivea scent with a touch of citrus and it does linger a little without interfering with my fragrance. It contains Coenzyme Q10, Creatine and L-Carnitine.
I found the product a bit pricey ( the big 400ml bottle was R79) so I did expect to see some sort of result. They promise skin firming in 2 weeks, I used it as instructed by applying it daily over my whole body for 4 weeks and honestly, apart from having moisturised skin, I noticed no difference to when I used their cheaper moisturisers which just promise moisturising. My skin didn’t feel more energised either, sadly. I really was hoping that my skin would have more get up and go, but it really didn’t! I love the other Nivea moisturisers and will continue to buy them, but this one definitely doesn’t live up to its promises.

Bye Bye Cellulite

Kavita Ramjee

I have been using Nivea Q10 Plus Firming lotion for about 8 years now. It works very well if used properly and diligently combined with exercise and a decent diet. Target areas should include tummy, thighs, and buttocks. I will never use another lotion ever again! I have really seen great results.

My no. 1

Tatum Simpson

I love this light body lotion for summer months. It makes my skin feel smooth, like velvet. It has a very subtle fragrance, which is very pleasant. It absorbs easily. It is significantly pricier than the other body lotions on the shelf, however, I find that it delivers like a premium product and really is in a different league to what you would ordinarily find alongside it.
