Most of us are very familiar with different skin types and conditions and how to take care of them, but many neglect body care.
Our body, just like our face, is covered with skin that needs to be taken care of through a simple routine. Check out a simple skincare routine for beginners here.
Again, the simple equation for flawless skin is to cleanse + protect + moisturize = healthy glowy skin.
Cleansing your Body
Shower gels and body washes have come a long way when it comes to their cleaning agents, also known as surfactants.
Choose a soap-free and sulfate-free body wash that is gentle on your skin barrier, especially if you have dry or sensitive skin.
It's best to wash your body two times a week. You should shower more frequently if you play sports or sweat more.
Use a natural loofah to provide gentle exfoliation and remove dead skin cells.
Hydrating and Moisturizing
Moisturize your body according to your skin type and need:
Dry skin always needs extra moisture and oils since it lacks natural oils. Apply a moisturizing lotion or body butter.
Oily skin, on the other hand, requires hydration and light lotions to keep it healthy.
Use a hydrating mist on your body to provide the hydration boost it needs, especially in dry weather.
Always use sunscreen whenever you're out on both your face and body. UV rays are the main culprit behind several skin conditions like dark spots, blemishes, and wrinkles.
Make sure to use broad-spectrum sunscreen all year long to protect your skin.
