Skin and Body Care Tips
How to Know Where to Begin with Body Skin Care Products
There are an overwhelming amount of skin and body care products on the market today, which can make it difficult to decide where to begin when establishing your own body care routine. There are products to cleanse, products to moisturize, products to exfoliate, and every woman’s favorite, anti-aging products to make you look younger.
Cleansers can come in the form of a bar soap, a liquid soap, a gel and even a cream base. All cleansers accomplish the job they are set out to do: remove dirt and oil from the skin. The type of product you choose is simply a matter of personal preference.
Pangea Organics has a line of bar soaps that gently cleanse the skin without sulfates, detergents or synthetic preservatives, and leave the skin smelling naturally fresh with ingredients such as lavender and rose petals. If you prefer a liquid soap, Nivea Touch of Beauty Cream Oil Body Wash is an inexpensive cleanser with pearlescent cream oil that glides on and rinses off smoothly.
Moisturizers come in liquids and creams, scented and unscented, and some are infused with sunscreen. The time of year can determine the type of moisturizer you choose. A lighter liquid formula is usually sufficient most of the year, while creams can provide longer hydration during the dry, cold winter months. The addition of sunscreen is a benefit year-round, especially for fair-skinned women.
Exfoliators and scrubs are body care products specifically designed for exfoliating the skin. Removing dead skin cells speeds up the skin’s renewal process and leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother. Caudalie Vinotherapie Gommage Friction Merlot Scrub is an option that also provides hydrating benefits with organic essential oils of lemon, peppermint and sweet mint.
Skin care products with anti-aging properties are the newest and most exciting of the beauty products on the market today. They tout a wide range of benefits such as reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, helping to eliminate the damage from free-radicles, and stimulating collagen to increase firmness, to name a few. H20+ Spa Hydrating Body Glossis one such product, with green and paraguay tea to provide a powerful antioxidant defense against environmental assaults. Going a step further, Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist, with its patented polypeptide, helps prevent the signs of aging, fights damaging free radicals, and stimulates collagen.
