Skin Care Doesn’t Stop With Your Face – How To Take Care Of Your Body
So, you have finally ventured into the world of skincare, and you are learning about
– Face masks.
But, did you know that it is not just your body?
When you are starting to look into skincare, it is no doubt that your face is the first thing you are most worried about. However, the skin on your body also ages, and you should be taking care of them as well.
So, if you are again confused about where to start, then you have reached the right place. In this excerpt below, we will be discussing some of the common ways you can start pampering your body.
1. Moisturize Daily
Moisturizing daily is the most basic advice which you will get in terms of body. This is to ensure that your skin is not getting to curtsy, as it can cause bad aging signs in the later years.
If you live in the tropics, where it can get too hot and humid, try going for a gel or water-based body lotion to ensure nothing heavy is lathering the skin. But, skipping moisturizing shouldn’t be an option, no matter the season. So, have a variety of body care creams in your collection. There are different body lotions on the market, but you can never go wrong with those infused with grape seed oil and vitamin E. Both ingredients promote skin rejuvenation and retain moisture.
2. Scrub Weekly
We are sure you scrub your skin to get the dead skin out to help new cells rejuvenate. However, when it comes to the body, we neglect the dead skin there. Scrubbing daily is not a healthy habit since you strip your body from essential oils as well.
However, when it comes to rejuvenating skin, at least once a week is mandatory. Also, when you scrub, you are being a little harsh on your skin, so moisturize to close your pores and help you bring the softness back to it.
3. Protect From Aging
Yes, protecting your body from aging is equally important, along with your face. You have often heard skin experts advising you not to leave the house without slapping sunscreen on your face. Similarly, any exposed area of your body is susceptible to harsh UV rays, so sunscreen for the neck and body is a must.
On the other hand, you should also consciously understand not to expose your body to harmful treatments like excessive tanning, tanning beds, or even a continuous spray tan. These will surely help you teach a beauty standard quickly but are harmful in the long run.
4. A Shaving Routine
If you shave with razors or wax at home, you need a routine that can help you to rejuvenate your skin right after the heated wax strips or blades.
– First, scrub your body so that you get rid of all the dead skin, and then clean the surface. This is your preparation.
– Never shave without proper moisturization, and if possible, apply some cold wax rather than the heated option for the strips.
– Once the regime is over, wash the area and apply body polishing oil generously.
While shaving, if you do not scrub before or moisturize later, you wouldn’t be able to get the shiny skin you see in the commercials.
5. Taking Care During Winter
Winters are cold and dry, which means your skin needs extra care. You will already be moisturizing, but during these crusty months, start oiling your body regularly. This will help to bring back the moisture lost from the weather.
Hydration is very important during the winter month because, more than the sun, it is the weather that is sucking up all the moisture. Leafy vegetables, mustard, and berries are some food choices you can incorporate into your skin this winter.
