Glowing Skin From Head to Toe - Body Care Routine
We always focus on our faces when it comes to skincare, often neglecting the majority of our skin. Your skin is your body's largest organ, and taking care of it is a beautiful act of self care! There is no better feeling than glowing, nurtured & hydrated skin, everywhere! Follow these steps to elevate your body routine for smooth, gorgeous skin!
The perfect body ritual starts in the shower! Many body washes are filled with toxic ingredients & watered down, with harsh additives that strip your skin and leave your skin feeling sensitive & dry. We love Bushbalm's Nourishing Body Wash as it provides a deep cleanse, without irritation. Made with a delicate blend of natural derived ingredients that will soothe and hydrate sensitive skin, like aloe vera, jojoba oil, and glycerin. This scented and unscented body wash is pH balanced making it safe to use everywhere, including intimate areas!
Pro Tip: If you suffer from redness, irritation, dry patches, breakouts or reactive skin, it may be your water! Hard water is super harsh on the skin and causes tons of problems for your skin and hair. Try getting a shower filter, and lathering your body in a body oil prior to showering. This will give a layer of protection between your skin and the hard water. It really works!
Your skin is in a constant state of regeneration: Old skin cells shed and new cells emerge. But, sometimes your skin needs help shedding its layers. Exfoliation is the best way to slough off dead skin cells and reveal the healthy cells underneath. Gently massaging an exfoliant into the skin also makes skin look revitalized, improves its texture and boosts its natural vibrancy.
Our top picks for exfoliating:
With dead skin cells buffed away, your skin can now absorb the moisturizing properties of the lotions and oils that follow! While your skin is still slightly damp, apply your favourite body lotion. For extra nourishment, layer a rich body oil on top to seal in the moisture.
Our top picks for moisturizing:
If cellulite is a concern, you aren’t alone. According to Scientific American, ninety percent of women have cellulite, which typically appears as dimpled skin around the buttocks and thighs. While cellulite can’t be made to disappear, you can reduce its appearance with skincare.
Reduce the appearance of cellulite with Eminence Stone Crop Contouring Body Cream. Stone crop, shea butter and jojoba oil add moisture, while coffee and microalgae extracts improve the look of cellulite. Treat your tush (Or anywhere skin needs a hydrating lift) with Bushbalm's Tush Cream, packed with natural plant derived ingredients like coffee arabica seed, and Brazilian nut seed oil that work hard to help tighten, firm, and keep skin feeling and looking refreshed. Get anti-aging results all over by treating your body to Eminence's natural retinol alternative with the Coconut Firming Body lotion! Coconut, shea butter and grape seed oil will leave your skin looking tight and firm, while providing deep and lasting hydration.
