Prep And Glow with Mio Skincare
Mio Skincare very kindly sent me a package last month to celebrate the launch of their #PrepAndGlow campaign. The package included the Mio body brush, the Mio Future Proof firming active body butter and a very cute pink water bottle.
The Prep and Glow campaign centres around ensuring that our skin doesn’t become dry, irritated and age prematurely during the upcoming autumn/winter period. When the weather cools down in September, the air becomes drier and sucks more moisture from our skin (central heating also has this effect argh!) so it’s important for us to take extra care of our skin over the coming months.
Body brushing is amazing for boosting circulation, removing dead skin cells, improving digestion and helping the body to detoxify and remove waste. I remember using a body brush about ten years ago - furiously brushing the backs of my legs for a week before I went on holiday in a desperate attempt to make them smooth (it didn’t work, shocker!) It really needs to be a regular part of your routine to see and feel the benefits.
I use the body brush on my whole body for a couple of minutes before I go in the shower, using upward sweeping motions. The Mio body brush has natural boar bristles and also rubber massage nodules. It makes my skin feel so smooth and invigorated, I wish I had been doing this for years!
After I get out of the shower, I put on the Future Proof body butter, which is full of brilliant ingredients including aloe leaf juice, organic sweet almond oil, organic olive fruit oil, organic argan kernel oil, reishi mushroom extract, blueberry seed oil, hyaluronic acid, pomegranate seed oil, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter and oakmoss lichen extract. The body butter has ‘no nasties’ and is free from parabens, petroleum, synthetic fragrance and colourants, xenoestrogens, PEGs, phthalates and glycols. It’s a gorgeous, rich body butter and deeply moisturising. I love the combination of the body brush and the body butter.
We all know that drinking water is very important for skin health and I absolutely love the Mio Skincare water bottle. It is the perfect size for carrying around with you so you don’t forget to drink enough throughout the day.
If you are interested in the Prep and Glow bundle, use the code LAURENGLOW at mioskincare.com and you will receive one of the cute water bottles for free! (valid until the 7th of October)
