Ahhh January, you hot thing! Resolutions are kicking in, some of us have started the work year already, while others are milking the last few days before school returns with beachy adventures. Whether you’re hitting the gym, the office or the campsite, check out our top tips to lighten your load with these double duty beauty winners.

 

COCONUT OILCOCONUT OIL

We’re nuts for coconut oil. More than double-duty, this jack-of-‘oil’- trades works wonders as a make-up remover, hair conditioner, shaving oil, moisturiser and cuticle oil.

But our latest love? Mix pure coconut oil with unrefined sugar or salt for a delicious body scrub. Or make like Chiva-Som even if you’re camping at Chinderah with a rice scrub. Finely milled rice mixed with pure coconut oil and the essential oil of your choice makes a brilliant scrub to remove the last traces of a spray tan, exfoliate the skin, and shake off the post-camping beauty blues. Head to The Source Bulk Foods – Miami, where you can mill your own rice and pick up everything you need – including gorgeous jars and oils to complete your scrub.

 

BABY PAW PAW SHAMPOO & BODY WASHNATURE’S CARE BABY PAW PAW SHAMPOO & BODY WASH

Minimise the bottles in your gym bag or camping kit with this deliciously scented double-up. Moisturing enough for hair and skin, 100% soap-free and pH-balanced, this little pink bottle worked a treat on our recent Christmas getaway. The pump pack is easy for little hands to use, and means no spills in your bag. Baby Paw Paw Shampoo & Body Wash.

 

CHINTA ISLAND BODY + SUN OILCHINTA ISLAND BODY + SUN OIL

Chinta Island’s Body + Sun Oil delivers a mega-moisturising hit plus sunscreen (SPF4) and a gorgeous coconut and lime scent. It’s a triple-threat! Your skin will glow with the goodness of coconut and almond oil, plus natural vitamin E, while the formulation is so light you won’t have to worry about that greasy feeling other oils leave behind. And in 100ml bottles, this is the perfect travel/gym size (or just keep it in your drawer at work for a tropical-infused hit when you need to daydream a deadline away…).
