Skin care doesn’t just include your face. Your skin covers most of your body and it’s important to maintain healthy skin with a few simple tips and tricks. These are especially important to maintain during the winter months when the indoor and outdoor temperatures/atmospheres can wreak havoc on your skin. You also want to limit your shower/bath time to 5 or 10 minutes in luke warm water. Hot water can leave your skin over dried.
Drink a full glass of water as soon as you wake up! If you have a lemon on hand to add into your water than even better. Lemon has alkalizing properties which keeps your body within an ideal pH – more on this is another post. Be sure to make time (about another 15-20 minutes) to dry brush your skin. Dry brushing has incredible health benefits and will leave your old skin ready to be washed away while your new skin cells have an opportunity to radiate and glow. Dry brushing is imperative to healthy skin and gets the blood circulation flowing throughout your body.
Use a good body wash that will help sluff off any unwanted particles while replenishing your skins moisture and oils without over drying or being too rough. Up&up Revitalizing Body Wash is fantastic for this and will help fight dryness while revitalizing aging skin. You can truly use this wash at any age since it will be gentle enough for daily use and improve the hydration within your skin, leaving it supple and soft.
Immediately after getting out of the shower, moisturize your body – top to bottom – with a nourishing body lotion. Image Essentials Body Lotion Deep Conditioning Cocoa Butter is perfect for providing the body with essential hydration. Apply liberally and massage into skin for as long as necessary until it is dry to the touch. This would be an ideal time to get right into your skin care routine as well so that you are refreshed from head to toe!
A Few Tips:
Drink plenty of water – at least 8 glasses per day
Limit your alcohol consumption as this can be very dehydrating for your body
Protect skin from sun
Pat your skin dry after a shower
Dress warmly when it is cold out and cover as much of your face as possible to protect your sensitive skin
Eat healthy we-balanced meals
Get at least 8 hours of sleep every night
Caring for your skin should be as regular as your daily facial cleansing routine. Your body is just as important and should not be neglected for essential nourishment and care. The more care and attention you give your body, the better shape it will be in! Always keep skin moisturized with Beauty360 Daily Moisturizing Lotion available at CVS.com!
