Read on for more ethical, sustainable and healthy products to improve your week:

Branching out

Looking for ethical, sustainable activewear? Check out KIHT Collective (pictured above) which launched during the pandemic. It incorporates high quality, compression and performance fabrics with trend-led styles, and is conscious about its carbon footprint — the brand plants a tree for every order placed.

From £6,

Staying ahead of the game

Looking to invest in a new cycling helmet? HEXR create custom-fit cycling helmets using 100 per cent recyclable bioplastic. You can do the fitting via the app and the shells are 3D printed and sent within five weeks using sustainable packaging.

From £299,

Refreshing remedy

Launching to rave reviews from skincare doctors, Revision Skincare is a capsule collection of 12 products. The brand is a pioneer of bioavailable peptides to help combat the visible signs of ageing.

We love the C+ Correcting Complex, a powerful blend of antioxidants to combat free radicals, prebiotics to support the microbiome and Vitamin C to brighten and even skin tone. If you’re not ready for tweakments, this is the next best thing.

£117.30 (30ml),

No sweat

Stinky workout kit getting you down? Grangers Active Wash removes dirt and sweat stains, but also promises to eradicate lingering fitness odours that won’t budge. It claims to actively remove the smells as opposed to masking them — and we can confirm that it works.


Eat smart

Curb snack attacks with The Skinny Food Co’s Chocaholic Drops. Just 86 calories and 1.4g of sugar per tube, they have a crunchy coating a bit like Smarties, but without the sin.

£11.99 (box of 20),

Top of the range

Luxury activewear brand Lucas Hugh doesn’t disappoint with its latest drop. The Axis Leggings and Sports Bra have the brand’s usual high-performance technical aspects and come in autumnal colourways of burnt orange and mahogany.

Axis Leggings, £170; Axis Sports Bra, £95.

Plenty of vim

Myprotein’s collaboration with Vimto has our tastebuds firing up. The limited-edition sports nutrition range will come in the iconic drink’s flavour and products will include the clear whey isolate (£21.99) and BCAA (£22.99), plus multivitamin gummies (£13.99) and a couple of drinks containers.

Wunda-ful workout

Calling all Pilates lovers. Modelled on Joseph Pilates Wunda Chair, the Pilates PRO Chair could boost your at-home practice thanks to a foot pedal bar with spring resistance system and handles. It also comes with four workout DVDs for all fitness levels.


Mole patrol

With around five million people on NHS waiting lists to get their moles checked, why not put your mind at ease with a quick trip to The Mole Clinic. The brand has 27 clinics across the UK and is launching into 28 Sk:n clinics by the end of the year.

Full Body Skin Check, £145 (45min); Mole Diagnostic Reports, £50 per mole (15min).
