Take skincare to the next level. Use these tips to nail down a body care routine that’ll have you glowing from head to toe.
Our faces usually steal the spotlight when it comes to skincare, but we can’t forget about the rest of our bodies too! Skin is the largest organ in the human body, and it’s our job to take care of it all. We’re sharing a few tips and tricks to help introduce you to a body care routine you can start today!
Love the skin you’re in
Our bodies are our home, our temple, and our gift to this green earth. It’s time to start treating it like the pure magic that it is– no matter the shape, the size, or the form.
It’s not uncommon to be self-conscious about various imperfections that appear on our bodies. Stretch marks, cellulite, and skin discoloration, to name a few, are all very normal appearances that remind us that we’re alive and well. There’s no such thing as a perfect body, anyway.
Stretch marks are a part of life that occur frequently during puberty or pregnancy. These marks happen when skin stretches more quickly than it can accommodate, leading essentially to scarred tissue in those areas. Along the same vein, cellulite appears when fat cells increase and push up against the skin. Nearly 80-90% of women have cellulite, which signifies that your body is normal and beautiful.
Skin discoloration, on the other hand, can happen for a variety of reasons. Nonetheless, it’s important to remember that our bodies will never be all one color, and variation is very common throughout different seasons of life. If you notice a rapid change in color somewhere on your skin, however, we recommend reaching out to a medical professional as soon as possible.
These skin conditions can come and go, but with a solid body care routine, you can slow down the progression of any of them.
Body Care Tips
To preserve the delicate skin you’re in, consider implementing some of the following body care routine tips:
- Moisturize immediately after the shower while skin is still damp
- Ditch the piping-hot shower for a lukewarm one to avoid stripping skin of natural oils
- Pat skin dry with a towel instead of rubbing to avoid unnecessary friction
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep skin hydrated
A Simple Body Care Routine
Your body care journey starts now. And luckily, the body care routine doesn’t differ much from your skincare routine. Cleanse, moisturize, SPF, repeat.
As soon as you get out of the shower, cover your body in moisture. Our Unconditional Care Body Butter is the perfect treat. After you’re done giving your body much-needed hydration, cover it in SPF. We wouldn’t be us if we didn’t tell you to put on sunscreen, would we?
