Pandemic highlighted a lot of things for many of us. We all rediscovered long-forgotten hand-washing techniques our grandmothers taught us; our love for de-cluttering, baking, binge watching favourite

Sarah Chapman is a serenely calm & wise beauty council when it comes to skin and they way we should look after it. She is the best testament that her skincare products truly deliver
If you already have a fitness regime in place, this gadget will be an added bonus. If not, it will be your helpful assistant, spurring you on. Sarah Chapman is one of London’s top facialists who is slowly and timely expanding her products range much to the joy of her loyal and growing fan base. I already have Sarah’s facial massager in my arsenal, which I use in the evening: it helps to wake up the circulation and helps with lymphatic drainage, on top of my evening skincare routine. Having this great tool under her belt, Sarah decided to apply a similar principle to our body, as regular massage has multiple benefits.
Sclupting Body Massager has 12 rolling heads and 72 massaging modules that will encourage, with regular use ( and by regular I mean daily ) your lymphatic system to drain toxins and reduce puffiness, if you are prone to it, thus improving the appearance of the skin, as well as its texture ( you can use it on your upper arms, thigh, bottom and lower legs ). By massaging those areas firmly ( I use it about 15 times on each area, going from the top of the area downwards ) you will ease muscle tension after a busy day on your feet. It feels great to use it after a workout session as firm massaging action helps to release lactic acid from your muscles ( in winter taking hot baths with Epsom or Himalayan detox salts helps but in warmer months you might not want to be in a hot, steaming bath, preferring a speedy shower instead ).
It’s a nice addition to your beauty, skin health as well as fitness routine at the end of each day, as massage relaxes everyone, from babies to elderly people, working subliminally on our minds as well. This clever gadget will make your skin feel warm to the touch after use and I definitely feel more light-footed when I use it in the evening, particularly when I have been walking & running around non-stop and my calves feel heavy. It introduces the sense of muscle relaxation, leading to hopefully a deeper and more relaxing night’s sleep plus its action benefits your muscles and skin not just internally but externally as well.
Sarah recommends applying her Overnight Body Treatment which is a fragrant & nurturing body oil alongside her Bodylift but you can apply your usual body cream, serum or oil that works for your skin ( at the moment I use Sunday Riley’s Disrobe Body Lotion which is a lovely multi-tasker, as it firms, detoxifies, exfoliates and hydrates the skin, while its delicious smell of caramel appeals to my sense of smell & my sweet tooth, without the extra calories. A combination of Blue agave, Night Blooming Cactus, Prickly Pear, Lady’s Slipper Orchard & Bio-fermented Aloe proactively works on preventing cellular inflammation, which combined with the massaging action becomes doubly powerful ).
I think combining clever gadgets with multi-tasking skincare will benefit your long-term well-being. Taking time out at the end of a busy day in the privacy of your own bathroom, reflecting on your day, while nurturing your face and your body is a necessary, meaningful luxury that you really need and deserve.
