To create a home spa, begin by setting the mood with a scented candle. "There’s a range of candles from Kalmar that are designed to pair with the brand’s lotions and fragrances,” says Frey-ja. “My pick is Calm, which fills the air with a relaxing scent.” Frey-ja’s top tip for instantly soothing dryness throughout the day? Reach for a buttery body cream. Lotions are slightly lighter in texture, so creams are great for richer hydration.

For very dry skin, Lancer Skincare’s The Method: Body Polish is a wonder product that scrubs body acne away. It uses pure quartz crystals and salicylic acid to exfoliate, while marula oil visibly restores the skin’s softness – use it once a week. For a gentle formulation that can be used two to three times a week, reach for Dermalogica's Thermafoliant Body Scrub. With a spa-like aroma, this exfoliator is packed with antioxidants like white tea, chamomile and grapefruit, which leaves the skin purified.”
