We featured our Prep and Protect products in our current issue of GALWAYnow magazine.
The skin is the largest organ in the body and yet most of us concentrate on only taking care of the skin on our face. There are a multitude of products specifically formulated for the body to nourish, protect and hydrate, especially as we head towards the harsher winter months. For those of us who wear tan regularly, polishing and prepping the skin is essential to avoid scaly, patchy skin. Here are some of our top products to prep and prime the body, revealing soft, smooth and luminous skin.
