We talk a lot about skincare routines and the best products to use on your face, but your skincare shouldn't just end at your jawline. With the skin being the largest organ in your body, it is so important to establish a natural body care routine as well! Read below to learn how to create a quick, easy, and effective 3 step body care routine!
Natural Body Care Routine
Step 1: DetoxDetoxing the skin is a vital part of any body care routine, as its purpose is to remove impurities, pollutants, and dead skin to help bring your complexion back to its healthiest state. Dry body brushing is an amazing way to detox your skin and make sure all necessary toxins are being eliminated. This practice helps stimulate the lymphatic system and in turn release toxins. It also helps promote cell renewal, increase blood flow, and achieve tighter, smoother skin. It is truly one of the easiest and most effective things you can do for promoting healthy skin.
Dry body brushing is also a great way to safely exfoliate your entire body. Our skin is made up of multiple layers and the topmost layer is made up of the oldest cells, most of which have died. Brushing the skin helps break up these cells. Try incorporating this into your daily routine right before you shower. It will help keep your skin feeling healthy and rejuvenated.
Step 2: Cleanse
Cleansing may seem like an obvious step in your body care routine, but making sure you’re using clean, natural products when washing your body is key. Our pure Aromatherapy Soaps are the perfect product for cleansing your entire body during your shower or bath routine. These soaps lather beautifully on the skin and wash away dirt and debris without drying out your skin. They are super rich in antioxidants, and skin-loving vitamins and nutrients. Your skin will feel its healthiest after switching to using natural soaps over other commercial soaps full of unnecessary synthetic chemicals!
Pro tip: Hot showers and baths may feel amazing, but they can wreak havoc on your skin. Water that’s too hot will dry out your skin’s natural oils which causes your skin to dry out. We encourage you to be more conscious of the temperature of the water next time you go to take a shower or bath.
Step 3: Moisturize
After washing your body it's important to hydrate and replenish the moisture on your skin with a natural lotion or body oil. Our Lotions and Body Oils feel absolutely amazing when applied immediately after showering. Not only are they luxurious, but they are also fantastic at helping lock in moisture. Your skin will feel incredibly soft, supple, and hydrated.
Pro tip: Our Body Oils can also be used as both a hair oil and bath oil.
We hope you learned something new today and feel confident in switching to a natural body care routine. We truly believe you can achieve healthy, youthful, and glowing skin by being mindful of what you put in, on, and around your body. Your skin is an incredible organ that works hard to protect you from environmental toxins, pollutants, and daily stresses, so you should put in the effort to protect it as well!
