Travel has always been integral to the In Fiore experience. Our raw floral materials are selectively chosen from regions where knowledge of cultivation runs as deep as the history of their people. Our scents, inspired by destinations far and wide, transport the senses, no matter if you’re at home or abroad. Take our body balms: Dayala, known as “Paradise on Earth,” captures the lush essence of Hanalei; Jasmine Supèrieur conjures balmy evenings in the South of France; Tangiers evokes North African radiance.
With summer around the corner, we’re ready to luxuriate in the some of the world’s sunniest spots (armed with plenty of sun protection, of course). So much attention is paid to sun prep and prevention that we sometimes forget that sun-kissed skin is one of the season’s greatest gifts. Of course, excessive sun exposure can deplete the skin’s lipid barrier, leading to dryness and premature aging, but when you’re bronzing in moderation, our body balms are an excellent way to deeply hydrate and preserve your coveted glow. Applied post-shower to damp skin, they penetrate quickly and provide an ambrosial cocoon of scent. But if you have a few extra minutes, we suggest a more luxurious treatment that is sure to indulge your senses, revive your body, and nourish your skin.
Smooth a layer of the balm of your choice over your entire body, from toes to décolleté.
Perform a dry brushing treatment on top of the balm, starting at the tops of the feet and moving in the direction of your heart in long, sweeping strokes. Alternatively, go the Ayurvedic route by performing Abhyanga, a full-body oil massage, which promotes similar health benefits.
Dip into a hot bath taking all necessary precautions, as this is a slippery process. If pressed for time (sunsets wait for no one) a hot shower will do. Water helps the balm to penetrate more deeply and nourish the skin while providing a protective barrier to prevent water loss.
Post-bath or shower, simply pat your body dry. Your skin will be soft, hydrated, and enveloped in a veil of fragrance.
