We all understand the importance of a skincare routine for the skin on our face, but often neglect our body care routine. Properly cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing the skin on our body is just as vital as the skin on our face. Let’s get into easy, but effective, steps you can take to upgrade your body care routine.
We all cleanse our bodies regularly, but how effective is it? Choosing a cleanser with gentle, non-toxic ingredients is essential for keeping your skin soft, healthy, and clean. Be sure to do your research on the body wash or soap that you choose to cleanse your body with to make sure the ingredients are promoting skin health. We created our Breakout Control Bar Soap with all-natural, gentle cleansing ingredients like Shea Butter, Tea Tree Oil, and Bentonite to leave your skin cleansed, refreshed, and soft. Using a loofah or exfoliating brush with your body wash also adds extra exfoliation and can give your skin a deeper cleanse.
Exfoliating is key for soft, hydrated skin. Adding a body scrub into your shower routine 1-2 times per week can help to get rid of lingering dead skin cells, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and absorb your moisturizer more efficiently. If you have sensitive skin that is easily irritated, opt for a body scrub that is formulated with hydrating ingredients. We formulated our Morning Brew Body Scrub with nourishing ingredients like Sunflower Seed Oil and Glycerin to keep your skin hydrated while Coffee gently exfoliates away dead skin cells.
While exfoliation comes with a plethora of benefits, over-exfoliating can actually harm your skin and strip it of its natural oils. Exfoliating 1-2 times per week is all your skin needs, and using a body scrub too often can hurt your skin more than help it.
Moisturizing is key in your daily body care routine. Water can actually dry our skin out, so it’s important to replenish the hydration in your skin with an effective moisturizer. We formulated our Tea Time Body Lotion with ultra-hydrating ingredients like Argan Oil, Vitamin E, and Cocoa Butter to leave your skin feeling soft, supple, and moisturized.
Your body care routine doesn’t have to be extensive or complicated, it just has to work for your skin. Incorporating an extra step or two into your routine can make all the difference in how your skin looks and feels.
