How to Battle Dry, Dehydrated Limbs by Skincare Extraordinaire Susanne Kaufmann

“Just like skincare for your face, the body needs layers of hydration in the winter to maintain the moisture levels in the skin. With its unique active power, my new Toning Body Serum, used as a body treatment, enhances the detox benefits of an improved dies and the skin-firming effects of regular workouts. Apply to arms, legs and other parts of the body that might need extra care and follow with a rich cream. I like to do this just before bed to hydrate, tighten and firm the skin overnight.”

Why Susanne Kaufmann's Firming Body Duo Is Worth It

“It almost sounds too good to be true, but this product pair was formulated to firm, tighten, and tone the body in just a month. They don't have to be used together for major results - the serum alone showed a noticeable 13-percent increase in firmness in a 28-day clinical study, while the cream showed 16 percent - but doubling up makes this feel like a full-on spa treatment. The secret sauce in both formulas is the brand's patented Pro Contur complex, a blend of caffeine, tiger grass, and the South American plant boldo to smooth skin, target the breakdown of fat cells, and boost skin metabolism. It also helps stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps detoxify the body and reduce puffiness. If you're looking to try just one product to start, it's all about your textural preferences: the body serum has a light, airy formula that sinks right into the skin, while the rich cream has a luxurious, emollient finish that'll cocoon the skin for hours.”

Packaging, the Beauty Industry's New Arms Race

“One way to minimise the environmental impact of shipping is to use local providers - Austrian-born Susanne Kaufmann sources most of the packaging needed for her eponymous brand from nearby suppliers in Germany, as well as earning further eco cred by using solar power for production. She has also lately started selling refills.”

This Body Oil That Doubles As Statement Decor Is The Ideal Gift For Your Chicest Friend

Yes, you could gift someone an all-inclusive ski vacation to the Alps or the Rockies, complete with hot spring spa days and sweeping views of an evergreen ocean. Or you could just give them the impossibly luxurious bath additive, inspired by the Austrian Alps themselves, and save a few thousand bucks. Steeped in wintry botanicals that do more than just smell bracingly fresh (a Nordic Spruce infusion boosts circulation for example), while the sunny yellow oil and a suspended, floating piece of pine add some woodsy elegance to any tub's edge.

Flaky Shins, Begone: How to Remedy Dry Skin on Your Legs

While Susanne Kaufmann's clever spray is intended to stop that itchy feeling and revive tired legs (it's a godsend for flights, by the way), the fact that it boosts circulation - along with the hydration provided by sunflower and wheat germ oils - makes it the perfect finishing product for the driest of legs. Plus, it's nearly mess-free since it's a spray. No need to get lotion or oil all over your hands, and it's perfect for situations when you need a quick and reliable dose of hydration.
