It always seems easier and more priority to take care of facial skin, because it is the one that is most in sight and also because it is faster, since the area to be taken care of is much smaller. But we all know that taking care of the skin of the body is equally important and there is no point in spending the whole year leaving exfoliation or hydration for tomorrow, and then walking distressed when it comes to walking with your little legs out.
With the onset of winter, we need to be more careful with our skin. Our skin can become more sensitive, by the lower temperatures, too hot baths, air conditioning... You may feel your skin flaking or worsening problems such as eczema. Your immune system may become weaker and your skin may give signals in different ways.
If you are one of those who leave everything for tomorrow, this post is your extra reminder to be more consistent! Yes, this is the keyword for you to see good results in everything. How about a better body care routine?
1. Dry Brushing
Dry brushing your skin is a great way to stimulate blood circulation, which may be less active now that temperatures have dropped. In addition, it stimulates the lymphatic system and the release of toxins, supporting the daily cleansing process of the body. It is great for relieving tired legs and for lightly exfoliating the skin. Should do it before bathing, with dry skin with this brush.
2. Less hot baths + natural shower gel
As much as it feels good to us, taking a super hot bath every day is not ideal for our skin. It will make you more sensitive, dry and susceptible to irritation - all of which gets worse if you use a soap or shower gel with dubious ingredients, because it can have an abrasive effect on the skin. If you don't have the courage to take a cold water bath, reduce the water temperature and the time of the bath (or quickly go through cold water in the last moments) and invest in a natural shower gel.
3. Extra hydration on the skin
In the colder months, hydration is the golden rule, especially if you tend to have very dry skin. As you do on the face, you can apply a serum and then a balm, creating an occlusive effect on the skin, retaining moisture for a longer time. It is best to take your bath before bedtime, generously moisturize the skin with the Sea oil and/or the Balm moisturizes and put on your pajamas next - a kind of hyper-nourishing cocoon for the skin :)
4. Natural deodorant
We've been talking here on the blog about the importance of using a natural deodorant. It's not just a scent we choose for our body - it's an opportunity to put on our armpits something that doesn't block our perspiration, that moisturizes the skin, that protects our lymph nodes and breast tissue. Have a natural deodorant for everyday use is a huge sign of self-care.
