Here’s the thing - we can’t just have all this amazing skin care for our faces, but totally neglect body care. Our bodies deserve the same care and attention, but most of the time we underappreciated the skin on our bodies - let’s change that!
Why Body Care Matters
When it comes to creating the perfect body care routine, the three main tenets still stand - cleansing, moisturising, and sun protection. Luckily, the skin on our bodies isn’t as picky (usually) as the skin on our faces! Using the right products ensures that our skin all over is radiant and healthy - here are some of the different products you can use to achieve that.
Types of Body Care Products
Knowing how to create a body care routine starts with knowing the products that you can actually get for your body. Here’s a list of the basics.
Bath & Shower Gels
Just like your face, using the right cleanser on your body matters. You can find moisturising cleansers that don’t leave skin feeling dry and parched, or refreshing body washes with scents that take you straight to the tropics.
Create a sensorial experience with the perfect bath and shower gel for your skin, plus set the foundation for your perfect body care routine.
Body Moisturisers & Body Oils
Body moisturisers and oils both work to lock hydration into the skin, preventing dryness and ensuring your skin stays soft and supple. They come in different formulas, too - body milk is lightweight, yet nourishing. Body butter and balms have thick, luxurious textures to trap moisture to the skin and leave it touchably smooth.
Body oils are formulated with a blend of plant oils to soften and nourish skin, plus they double up as massage oils to boost circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage.
Exfoliation is just as important for the body as it is for the face! Getting rid of dry, flakey skin ensures that skin is soft and touchable everywhere, from top to toe. The skin on your body can tolerate stronger physical exfoliation than your face - so don’t be too worried about over-exfoliation with body scrubs.
It’s ideal to exfoliate your body every few days - paired with your ideal body moisturiser, your skin is sure to glow.
Hand & Foot Care
Of all parts of the body, hands and feet tend to be the most neglected! Taking care of them both goes a long way to feeling good and looking great with rich moisturisers and scrubs to ensure that they’re super soft and super smooth.
One of our beauty-expert-approved tips is to put clean socks on after applying a generous amount of foot cream so you wake up with perfectly moisturised heels in the morning!
