On a scale of 1 to 10, rate your skin care routine. Now, did you only think about your face? What about the rest of your body? Skin is the largest organ of the human body, so it is vital to care for our skin from head to toe, so here are four tips that you can incorporate into your body care routine right now!
While many would not dream of skipping exfoliation for their face, the body can often be forgotten. I love using Dr Teals Himalayan Epsom Salt Scrub to remove dead skin cell buildup and smoothing texture while leaving the skin polished, moisturized, and refreshed. Simply spread a thin layer over your skin in the shower and massage in a circular motion across your body, then rinse off.
We all know the benefits of drinking water daily, but it is hard to remind yourself to take sips throughout the day. Instead of using single use water bottles, use a refillable water bottle that is insulated to keep water cold for drinking throughout the day. I love my Glink Stainless Steel 32 oz Insulated Water Bottle. This comes in quite a few colors and it keeps the water cold (and keeps hot drinks hot too). Filling this up twice a day gives me the 64 ounces that is recommended to drink every day.
Your body from the neck down is just as prone to dryness, wrinkles, and aging. Use an ultra-moisturizing body cream like CeraVe Moisturizing Cream (my all-time favorite). This is a rich cream that contains three essential ceramides, hyaluronic acid, is non-comedogenic (you can also use this cream on your face) and is fragrance free. This cream will keep your skin hydrated and moisturized all day!
Your skin is the last organ to receive nutrients, but the first to show signs of imbalance or deficiency. Stimulate circulation and eliminate layers of dead skin by dry brushing (I love using the Eco Tools Dry Brush). Use on dry skin, in circular motions moving up towards the heart. Not only will this remove dead skin, dry brushing will also help to drain your lymphatic system and increase blood circulation. You can do this a few times a week to start and work your way up to every morning before your shower (I wrote a blog post all about dry brushing, you can read it here).
There is more to skin care than just caring for the face. The skin on our bodies needs just as much attention too and these tips will help you do just that and until next time, be happy, healthy, and beautiful!
