When we hear the term skincare, we often think of facial care. But this includes the body just as well. Skin care for the body is just as necessary as it is for the face.A moisturizing body lotion and a weekly scrub do wonders for your skin. But what does the body need in terms of skincare? Let's dig a little deeper into the right skincare for our bodies!
It would be a shame if skin care for your body falls every time. Your body deserves the same skin care as your face. Skin is skin after all. And your skin deserves protection against all kinds of harmful factors such as the sun, dirt and dryness. Dryness in particular is a common problem with the skin. But on the body you often don't realize this, or it doesn't really bother you.
In addition, the removal of dead skin cells - which your skin continuously produces - has a lot of influence on the smoothness of your skin. If you take good care of the removal of dead skin cells, your skin will look a lot smoother and more radiant. Dead skin cells are also a kind of protective layer for your skin. So don't remove the dead skin cells too often. Balance!
Especially if you spend a lot of time in the sun, good skin care is a must. UV radiation does not only affect the health of your skin in the long term, UV radiation also has a major impact on your skin in the short term. Some of the consequences of UV radiation are:thickening of the skin and an inhibitory effect on the immune system. And of course you can also burn a lot.
The right skin care is key. Finding the right products for your skin can be a quest. Do you have very sensitive skin? Then it is best to use mild products and then you need to exfoliate your skin less often. If you have dry skin, hydration is important. And we could go on and on! But first things first, what does a good skincare routine look like?
#1 - Cleanse Your Skin
Cleaning your skin is a must. This allows the nourishing skin cosmetics to penetrate your skin best after cleaning. Plus, the dirt on your skin needs to be removed. Residual dirt often remains on your skin. Also, for example, self-tanning, deodorant, sunscreen and body lotion products. And finally: use a shower gel that is based on natural ingredients.
#2 - Scrub
Is exfoliating bad for your skin or not? You may read that exfoliating is good for your skin one time, while another time you might read that you should avoid exfoliating. Exfoliating is not harmful to your skin, if you use the scrub in the right way.
It is important that the scrub does not contain harmful and natural ingredients. Exfoliating your body will remove dead skin cells and dirt. And can better absorb skin care or self tanning. Exfoliating also helps against ingrown hairs.
#3 - Shaving
Always shave on damp skin. Preferably with a shaving cream. In addition, do not use an old or dull razor.
#4 - Skincare products
It is important to nourish and moisturize your skin daily with gentle skin care products. Your skin really needs a body lotion, body cream or oil. And will make your skin more even, softer and shinier.
