Superdrug is full of activity this spring with the launch of the Superdrug #TeamMe campaign to encourage the nation to get healthier and achieve personal health goals. New research by Superdrug shows that ‘89% of Brits want to improve their health, but more than two thirds (74%) have not sought help, advice or treatment and those that have, have waited (on average) an astonishing 25 months before tackling their personal health concern.’
So, in a bid to help the nation improve their health in summer 2016 and beyond, the Superdrug #TeamMe campaign has been launched with a Health & Wellbeing revolution taking place across the UK to help and inspire every Briton who wants to make a positive change and take action.
I have done a Superdrug haul, focusing on health and well-being for this summer. I was really surprised as well, because usually I go to Superdrug for quick beauty buys but I didn’t realise that they had so many health & well-being products as well! So what did I pick up? Stay tuned to find out my best picks!
Well, let me tell you! I know it’s not fun to talk about blisters but I get them A LOT. Blame it on my shoe obsession but I really need some protection this summer from all the heels I am planning to wear. Superdrug has specific blister plasters that are brilliant for the back of the heel, where I am most prone to getting blisters so now that I am stocked up I am hoping no more blisters!
Okay so while we are on the subject of shoes and heels – it’s now sandal weather so I am prepping my feet for the warmer weather after their long winter nap. That means an intensive foot ‘make-over’. Superdrug has load of foot products, ranging from Bare Foot Heel & Callus Balm to Intensive Foot Creams for any dry patches.
I’ve swatched the Bare Foot Heel & Callus Balm on my hand below and it is really lovely and light, soothing with tea tree oil and peppermint.
To get feet ready for sandal weather you absolutely need a Rapid-Pedi Electronic Foot File. I have never used one before and when I used this one from Superdrug I was seriously impressed. It smooths any rough bits on the feet, even on the toes and around your toenails so that your feet look perfect. I will definitely be using this on all future at-home pedicures!
It’s really easy to use – simply put the batteries in and press the power on. Then get to smoothing those feet! It works quickly and efficiently so you will be pedi-ready in no time.
We can’t talk about health without talking about nutrition and getting back in shape. And when we start talking about health some topics come up naturally like exercise and diet and with that, losing a bit of weight. Superdrug has Yokebe Active Food which are meal replacement shake formulas for weight loss made with 100% natural ingredients + all the vitamins, minerals and macronutrients your body needs. It’s a no-brainer if you want to lose weight and comes with a plan and everything so it’s easy to follow. It works similar to Weight Watchers but is more reasonable in price. There are different flavours as well to choose from – I’ve got the Choc O Late and the Strawberry flavours.
And if you are looking to lose weight but don’t want to join an expensive gym why not jump rope? I totally forgot about jump roping until I saw this Delux Skipping Rope at Superdrug! Literally I got so excited to see it and jump roping burns mega calories for a minimal time commitment. I am super time-starved and need something quick like this to do that helps burn calories but also get my heart rate up so I can keep in shape. Who needs Virgin Active anyways?
Over the next four months, #TeamMe will be travelling around the UK visiting Superdrug stores in Canterbury, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Manchester to encourage as many people as possible to take part in a national health check. Shoppers up and down the country will be able to speak to Superdrug experts about achieving their personal health goals and receive special offers and discounts on a range of #TeamMe health and wellbeing products in-store and online.
