My Current Body Regimen

Since I started going to Pure Power Boot Camp, my body regimen has become simplified and more challenging at the same time. I don’t want to be carting lots of potions and lotions to the gym but, on the other hand, a girl’s gotta spa whenever she can. So here are my body regimen essentials.

My gym bag stowaway is Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Cooling Moisture Mist ($35). This spray has an active ingredient — a marine oligosaccharide to be precise — that actually cools down the skin. It’s perfect for post shower at the gym (or hot afternoons at the office). There is also malachite, a semi-precious stone that is an important source of copper ore. Copper increases the amounts of collagen and elastin, and malachite is regarded as a detoxifier.

My body lotion of choice these days is Stemulation Relance Body Lotion ($98 in the shop). It is rich but lightweight enough to use through the summer, and a little goes a long way. This is a proper anti-aging body product with stem cells (the human variety), exfoliating lactates and fruit acids and plant-derived antioxidants. I am really seeing smoother and more supple skin and think it is worth every cent.

To eke out its value, I am not beyond alternating with something a little less expensive, and I like Mirai’s Purifying Body Serum ($29). It is a good quality and effective anti-aging body lotion at a decent price. It has astaxanthin — an antioxidant and one of my favorite ingredients: a super powerful antioxidant it eliminates free radicals, prevents sun damage and reduces melanin. There’s some good moisturizers — shea butter, squalane and sodium hyaluronate — as well as wheat protein.

For elbows and knees, I use Arcona Pumpkin Lotion 10% ($35). This exfoliator is far from wimpy; there is 10% glycolic acid, boosted by pumpkin ferment. I use it every other day on these wrinkle prone areas and ensure that I moisturize on the other days. I do worry about my knees, though, detecting the dreaded sag. So far, regular exercise and use of Ultra Renew Sculpt ($129) in LED and ultrasound modes seem to be the only things to stop my knees from joining my ankles.

As far as my neck is concerned, I am always experimenting with whatever tester comes my way (currently, it’s a new potion from Osmotics). But if there is anything that I tend to go back to, it is MitoQ Moisturizing Anti-Aging Serum ($119 in the shop), which does a very good job of smoothing skin that is rough and sun damaged. Although it is primarily a facial serum, it comes in a decent 1.7-oz size and, as a little goes a long way, it does not feel extravagant to extend use below my chin (and it is much needed).

Finally, I have to give a special mention to Medik8 Red Alert For Body($75). It is a miracle cure for bruises and mysterious blotches that my legs seem to acquire (Boot Camp, yes, ugly signs of aging, maybe). It’s a fantastic product that has cutting edge ingredients, such as teprenone and bearberry — good for spider veins and skin lightening.

    Martha, are any of these products specifically helpful in reducing the appearance of cellulite? I woke up this spring with bumps on the front of my thighs. Ugggh. So much easier to ignore when it was just on the back!
