Cool down with a sweet-smelling spritz
I have nothing against supermarket shower gels, but sometimes it’s good to broaden your horizons. Especially during these sweaty nights when you wake up wanting a cool rub-down. For something invigorating, I’m loving Malin + Goetz’s Bergamot Body Wash (£15.50, spacenk.com). It’s at the top end of what I’m willing to spend on lathering up (when that £2 coin-sized blob actually equates to £2 you know you’ve gone wrong), but it’s full of natural ingredients which are kind enough to be used daily on sensitive skin. Alternatively, try Balance Me’s Super Toning Body Wash (£9, balanceme.co.uk). It is 99% natural and perfect for after the gym.
