The Perfect Body Skincare Routine for All Skin Types

New season, new skincare, it’s time for a change! Self-care is important—especially when it comes to taking care of yourself from head to toe-and body skincare routine is one area to pay attention to.

Why do you need to take care of your body’s skin?

Taking care of your body is crucial for maintaining good health and overall well-being. Just as we take care of our facial skin, so should we care for the skin on our body. The skin on your body is just as susceptible to damaging environmental factors such as pollutants, harsh winds, and UV rays which can all do damage to your skin. Having a regular skincare routine can help protect your skin against these environmental factors.

It is also a necessity in reducing the signs of ageing. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen which leads to wrinkles and lines on the skin. By having a consistent skincare routine that includes moisturisers and exfoliants, you can help keep your skin looking youthful and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Hydration – this affects skin in general and therefore is very important. With Winter upon us, dry skin can not only cause discomfort but also make you more prone to itching and other forms of irritation. A good body lotion will help keep your skin hydrated by locking in moisture and providing essential nutrients.

The perfect body care routine 

The good news is that you don’t need to be a skincare expert or devote hours each day to achieve your goal of soft, glowing skin from head to toe. With just the right combination of products at the right times and making small changes here and there, you can easily create an effective body care routine that works for you. It’s an easy and simple three-step routine. 

Start with a cleanser or body wash. When it comes to body care, cleansing is like hitting the reset button for your skin. A good body wash or cleanser can remove dirt, oil, and makeup while leaving your skin feeling refreshed and balanced. Look for a gentle body wash that has salicylic acid which will exfoliate dead skin cells while moisturising and soothing skin for an improved texture. 

Exfoliate. Exfoliation helps slough off dead skin cells, even out your skin tone, unclog pores, and stimulate circulation. It’s like a mini workout for your skin! And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good workout? But don’t overdo it, like with any exercise, be gentle and exfoliate 2-3 times a week. So next time you’re in the shower, grab the SKIN functional BHA body treatment and gently lather onto your skin to help with breakouts, ingrown hairs and razor rash.

The body treatment has a powerful formulation of BHAs which stands for beta hydroxy acid. Unlike AHAs—which include glycolic acid and lactic acid—BHAs are oil-soluble, which means they can be absorbed deep into the skin through the skin’s oils. Once absorbed, they can help to clear out the pores, exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells, dirt and oil build-up. BHAs are also incredibly effective in targeting those stubborn darks marks and ingrown hairs as well as strawberry legs – Strawberry legs which are medically known as keratosis pilaris (KP). This is a common skin condition that happens if keratin (a protein) builds up and clogs your pores. Exfoliating and moisturising your skin helps reduce the appearance of KP. 

Moisturise. Keeping your entire body hydrated is important to support your skin barrier, not just for its health but also for your confidence. No one wants to be ashy and flaky, after all. That’s where body lotion comes in to nourish skin, the unsung hero of your body care routine. This one is a must for all skin types. A good moisturiser can help you achieve that smooth and supple look that we all crave. From fragrance-free for those with sensitive skin to ultra-hydrating for those with dry skin, and pick one with niacinamide for the ultimate results. This Winter, add a moisturiser to your morning and evening routine, and get ready to conquer the world–or at least the thirsty skin epidemic.
