Taking care of your skin is much more than one simple step. For healthy skin, you need to exfoliate, moisturize, condition and more. Learn what your skincare routine is missing with our body skin care articles below.
Body skincare is often overlooked as we spend our time and energy chasing that complexion glow with the latest skincare lotions and potions. The skin is the largest organ of the body, and it doesn’t stop at your chin, every part of your body is susceptible to skin issues from hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne, dryness, redness, to loss of elasticity, and conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, rosacea. Sun damage can be a real issue for the most exposed areas aside from the face—think neck, décolleté, and of course, hands. Shoulders and backs can be prone to breakouts, feet can get super dry and chapped—you get the idea.
While you may not need as many steps as with your daily complexion care, your body care will benefit from daily cleansing to remove excess oils, dirt, sweat, suncare residue that can clog pores and cause breakouts. A weekly exfoliation treatment is ideal for removing dead skin cells that can build up and cause dryness, and if combined with dry skin brushing, can also help firm and smooth. You can also spot-treat any blemishes or breakouts on your body as you would your face using acne body spray or a targeted treatment. And, of course hydration is vital. Ensuring you moisturize regularly and keep skin hydrated, plumped, and soft is your key to body skin care and comfort.
