Rough Justice by Belinda Morris
It doesn’t grab everyone this way, but there’s a band of hardy chaps who need no more than a glimmer of sun as an excuse to expose some flesh – I’m thinking in particular of shorts wearers. No, not just postmen (although them, obviously), the need to ditch long trousers as early as April seems to strike increasing numbers of men every year (or is it just the men in my house…?)
Anyway, my observation is that it’s not just women who should give some thought to the state of their just-revealed flesh after months of winter incarceration. A little buffing off the rough edges is what’s needed and ideally with something that means business.
On your behalf I have tested a scrub that not only does the smoothing thing but also effectively wakes up sluggish winter skin – knees, elbows, calves, anywhere but your face essentially. Ok, so it sounds a bit girly, but Glamour Grit (£14.99 – 320g) has the reassuring zesty scent of grapefruit and contains ingredients like green tea extract, sea kelp, algae and vitamin E for anti-oxidant and conditioning benefits. And by way of additional pros the scrub is paraben-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free and vegan.
