Life is slowly getting back to normal. That means more going out, more exposure to the elements, and maybe... a little less me-time. But you can make sure that your skin still receives the TLC it deserves with L’Occitane en Provence. There’s no denying the fact that the French know their beauty, and no one combines the two better than L’Occitane en Provence – a brand that brings the freshness of the Provence countryside to your home.

Want to add in your own sense of je ne sais quoi to your skincare routine?  In this article, the allbeauty team shares some of our favourite products that you can add into your skincare routine, for next level skin nourishment from head to toe.

1. Shower Time It might sound strange, but water has the tendency to dry your skin out. Using a nourishing shower gel like theL'Occitane Almond Shower Oil makes sure your skin stays hydrated – and it smells amazing too.  L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil gives your shower time an instant upgrade. Simply massage it into your skin with water or use a loofah to work it into a luxurious cleansing foam, and relax as your bathroom fills up with the scent of warm vanilla and Provençal almonds – bliss.

For really dry skin, why not try a L’Occitane soap packed with the miracle moisturiser, shea butter. L’Occitane soaps are available in a gorgeous trio packed with the goodness of milk, lavender, and verbena.

Also available in a refill size, this sublime body cream helps to hydrate the skin, whilst improving definition. Use after cleansing and massage into the skin with slow movements for a mini spa moment.

2. Hand Wash

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s to wash our hands more times than we ever did before. Using a soap like the L'Occitane Shea Butter Lavender Liquid Soap makes sure that your hands stay clean while the gentle, emollient formula protects your skin despite frequent washing.

The all-natural ingredients in the handwash allows you to rest assured that your family isn’t exposed to harmful chemicals on a regular basis either. Talking about purity of ingredients, L’Occitane sources all of its lavender from the south of France, where it’s working with ecological scientists to explore ways to conserve the plant, which is under threat due to the effects of climate change.

L’Occitane’s handwashes are available in refill packs too, giving you great value and reducing waste at the same time.

3. Hand Care Hard-working hands need more TLC than any other part of your body. The L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Hand Cream is full of Vitamin E and shea butter that soothe any dry patches on your hands, while the delicate fragrance of cherry blossoms from the Apt region in Luberon instantly uplift your mood.

Use it anytime your hands need a little bit of love.

4. Anti-ageing With L’Occitane’s Immortelle range your skin can have a reset while you get some well-earned beauty sleep.L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream harnesses the magic of organic essential oil from the Immortelle flower which acts as a natural alternative to retinol to boost collagen synthesis and regeneration. This luxurious L’Occitane skincare product simply melts into your skin, so that you wake up with a radiant glow every morning.

Did you know, L’Occitane’s Immortelle farmers simply let sheep into their fields to eat all the other wild plants since sheep don’t like the taste of Immortelle. This allows them to grow it without the need for harmful pesticides or chemical fertilizers, making L’Occitane the ultimate destination for eco-conscious beauty buys.

5. Foot care Self-care means caring for yourself from head-to-toe, and L'Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream looks after tired feet after a long day.

Simply massage onto your feet, pop on some socks and let your feet absorb all the goodness of shea butter, enriched with antiseptic lavender essential oil and anti-inflammatory arnica extract to take care of redness and irritation. You can even use it everyday just before you go to bed - your feet will thank you for it.

6. Bathtime Busy schedule or not, there’s nothing like a hot bath to soak away the stresses of the day, so why not treat yourself to some special me-time at least once a week. The gorgeously scented L'Occitane Verbena Foaming Bath will transport you to the markets of Provence, and it soothes and softens skin while you relax and unwind.

Treating yourself to some well-deserved me-time doesn’t have to be a time-consuming process. Instead, it's all about grabbing moments of beauty whenever you can.
