Top Essentials for Your Beautiful Body
Keeping your body clean, protected and in tip-top shape leaves us with a beautiful body we can boast. Oil and dirt and rough and dry skin are our mortal enemies and we want them out of our system fast. Being beautiful isnâ€™t just about wearing the perfect makeup, but cleaning, polishing and protecting your body from head to toe. Take a look at these essentials to achieve and maintain a body thatâ€™s beautiful and healthy.
So Fresh So Clean
Soap undeniably cleans your body covered in sweat and grime, which you acquired from the dayâ€™s activities. However, most generic soaps can leave your skin dry and flaky, removing the natural moisture of your skin. The best way to keep your skin squeaky clean while adding moisture to your body is by using body wash everytime you shower. Body wash removes oil, dirt, sweat, odor and even makeup. It cleans your skin gently, leaving your skin smooth, soft and plump without the greasy feel. Body wash products are water soluble which means they can be easily mixed with water to lather up on your skin.
Polished and Pretty
Help rejuvenate the skin through regular exfoliation. When done two to three times a week, youâ€™ll see your skin getting fairer, bringing life to your dull and dry skin. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells so that new ones can quickly begin the renewal process. By using body scrubs and exfoliators, youâ€™re not only removing dead and dry skin but youâ€™re also helping reduce appearance of big pores. Dirt and oil dig deep in your pores and when removed, these pores are able to minimize. After all, we all want hydrated, younger looking, and softer skin so make sure youâ€™re using gentle scrub particles that wonâ€™t be tough and rough on your body.
Remember how our mother tells us to moisturize after washing our face? While moisturizers keep our face plump and hydrated, we need body butters, creams and lotions to keep our body smooth and soft. After showering or exfoliating, make it a habit to generously apply any of these products. Not only do body butters, creams and lotions keep the skin smooth, but the blended ingredients strengthen the skinâ€™s barrier to prevent moisture loss. Spread over on dry hands, cracked heels and even use as an after shave balm on your legs. Lotions even act as great cuticle softeners and makeup removers.
Create your skinâ€™s defensive blockage from harmful UV rays by regularly applying sun block and sun screen. Body lotion is enough to lock in moisture, but you need added protection from the sun. Regular exposure to the sun without protection only leads to skin damage and fast skin aging. Use products with at least SPF 15 â€“ the higher SPF, the better. Sun screens usually contain antioxidants as well as UVA â€“ protecting active ingredients to prevent redness and irritation.
Make it a habit to listen to your body and be aware of your its needs when it comes to cleaning, polishing, smoothening, and protecting the skin. Fill your bathroom counter with products that will unleash your youthful beauty from head to toe.
