This week REN launched their new invigorating Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium body range. Leaving you light, lifted and re-energised it’s the perfect post-workout treat for gym-goers
Not many people know that one of the main vitamins us Brits lack is magnesium. It’s a vital nutrient that supports muscle function, heart health, maintains energy levels, calms nerves and helps aid digestion. Magnesium can be absorbed in a number of ways, either topically on the skin or orally in the form of a tablet or soluble powder in your favourite smoothie.
By restoring the body’s balance of magnesium we can ensure our cells release toxins, waste and heavy metals, consequently regaining the energy required for a healthy functioning body and a busy London life! Did you know magnesium is an antidote to stress and helps our bodies to function better?
East meets West
We met up with head of education at REN skincare David Delport who introduced us to the new #RENergy collection. David visited Japan to observe the ritual of bathing in natural mineral pools and was inspired to create a range of body products which harnesses natural healing properties. Featuring ingredients from the sea such as kelp, magnesium and algae the range has been designed to not only hydrate the skin but to also give us ladies that much needed energy boost which pumps the most sluggish cells back into action. We’re calling this range our skin saviour!
Here are our top products from the range and how they work:
Atlantic kelp and Magnesium Anti-Fatigue Body Wash and Body Cream
The reviving body wash is sulphate-free and formulated with seaweed extracts and cell-energising magnesium to help nourish tone and smooth skin. Blended with REN’s exclusive anti-fatigue oils (including sage, rosemary, cypress and geranium), this shower gel will awaken your senses in the morning (or post-workout) to leave you feeling light and uplifted.
Step out of the shower and finish up with the REN’s luxury body cream. Easily absorbed they’ll be no awkward gym changing room dramas where you can’t pull your jeans up! The cream is enriched with plankton extract to help restore the skin’s moisture balance and enhance it’s natural cell renewal cycle, plus the cream helps to relax and relieve fatigued muscles. Just what we need after those weight sessions!
Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Salt Anti-Fatigue Exfoliating Body Scrub
This gentle exfoliating balm contains fresh sea and magnesium salts that gently help to polish away dry skin. Take some time out and massage this onto dry skin in circular motions towards the heart – you’ll encourage cell renewal and circulation. Either rinse this off in the shower or for an extra dose of indulgence submerge yourself in a warm bath and allow the oils and salts to diffuse. Heaven!
Atlantic Kelp and Microalgae Anti-Fatigue Bath Oil
This has to be our hero product! Formulated with seaweed extract and packed with omega 6 and 9 this is a luxurious and rich bath oil. Add a small amount to a warm bath, light a candle, sit back and relax. What’s even better is that unlike other bath oils it won’t leave a greasy film on your skin. If you’re pressed for time you can even use half a cap in the shower, dab it over your skin, pat yourself dry, pop on a summer dress and you’ll be silky smooth and super hydrated for the day ahead!
So ladies, if you’re looking for a range of products to help combat fatigue and look after those tired muscles of yours, REN Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium is your new go to! Try it for yourself and let us know what you think…
