You’re working so hard on your overall health: eating right, de-stressing, sleeping well, and exercising. Don’t forget your skin!
Dermatologists will tell you that it’s not uncommon to see toned, glowing faces topping dry, lined, and spotted necks and chests. One tends to forget how often our hands are seen. Knees, elbows and thighs can look dull and aged, too. Read on for some simple suggestions to make your body skin feel as loved as your facial skin:
Why use gentle, creamy cleansers for the face but hard soaps that could strip a wok for your body? Try mild, liquid or cream lubricating cleansers for your body, too. Bar soaps, because of the way they’re made, can have very high pH-levels that can denature skin and strip skin of moisture.
Just as you “dew” your face, moisturize your body daily with a light hydrator like Essence Hand + Body Smoother, a multi-beneficial product like our virgin coconut Know-It-Oil, or even an active body skin therapy lotion like Re-Everything for rejuvenation, Id for body acne, or Illuminants+ for body skin brightening. And add a body spa treatment to your monthly facial.
Consider A Body Skin Treatment
