Hands up who applies 15 skin care products to their face twice a day, but fails to add just one nourishing layer of moisturiser to their entire body? Who ALSO adds in a daily body cleanse and weekly body scrub? Just as we thought, not many hands heading towards the sky!
We can all now visualise our morning routine, rushing to get dressed, slowing down to add our in-depth skin routine, full makeup application, hair blow dried to perfection, possibly a quick layer of moisturiser to the legs if it’s warm enough? Really though, our body is dying for some attention! Our arms and decolletage’ have feelings too, and desperately need the same nutrition and hydration you’ve been pampering your face with.
The harsh truth is that the way your skin will look in ten to twenty years’ time depends on the way you care for it now! You can’t go back in time and add those luxuriously rich moisturisers and oils to your skin, it all needs to become routine from tomorrow! With an five extra minutes of morning body care, you will look, feel (and smell) amazing, every time you step out the front door.
Our skin cells are changing constantly! The skin sheds its cells every day, every minute, which is why a daily routine is so important. Smooth, radiant skin is an outward sign of inner health and youth and the texture plays a huge part in this. The texture of your skin is affected by dehydration, fine lines and wrinkles and a buildup of excess dead skin cells. When sun exposure, tanning beds, hormones, poor diet and smoking are added into the equation, you can easily add unnecessary years (which is going to look a little odd if you’ve only been caring for your face this entire time).
Not to worry, you can still start now! We have some wonderful, in-expensive body care products to add to your daily shower routine, that will cover all basis, and have your skin ageing as gracefully as you. Plus, bonus, they’re all organic, all smell incredible, and will ALL put you in a fabulous mood every day 😊.
First step, ditch the soap or any mainstream body wash you currently have in your shower… do you really know what’s in there? Nasty ingredients are only going to take your treatment process backwards, it’s vital to use gentle, nourishing products that aid in the healing and protection of your skin. Try using products like Organic Nation Body Cleanse, or Miessence Body Wash.
Organic Nation contains 82% certified organic ingredients, Aloe Vera leaf juice, Australian super-berries, fruit extracts and antioxidants to naturally brighten and fight free radical damage within the skin. With a light creamy texture, rub into the body and wash away any dirt, grime and dead skin cells (everything dampening your glow).
Miessence Body Wash is one for the entire family! From pregnant women to tiny babies your whole family can shower, bathe, even wash their hair with this certified organic body wash! You’ll be left smelling amazing with its zesty lemon, lime and orange scent (we think it smells like lemon cheesecake). A perfect first step to your body care regime.
The Organic Nation Body Moisturiser works by locking moisture into your skin as it improves your natural barrier functions. This vanilla mint body moisturiser hydrates and protects skin whilst supporting skin elasticity. It restores your skin’s supple and youthful beauty in just one small action each day. All you have to do is remember to moisturise after showering, and you will be accessing a world of smooth, gorgeous skin in no time. By seamlessly blending the organic world with scientific knowledge, Organic Nation guarantees rejuvenated skin with each of its products.
With Miessence, you can be sure that what you see is what you get. That is the promise they make to their customers. Their Body Cream is made with Aloe Vera juice, purified water, Shea Butter, and Sunflower Seed oil – to help your skin stay gorgeous naturally. It’s the perfect daily lotion for restoring and retaining skin moisture while actively promoting elasticity and suppleness, while the hint of Patchouli and Geranium oil, will have you smelling like a summer’s day!
There’s really only three steps we recommend for maintaining great body care. Cleansing away the impurities, moisturising and hydrating and the third and final, weekly exfoliation. A great tip, when you have mask day (our Sunday) add in a body scrub to your shower. Yes, you’ll feel pampered and it may seem a bit much to squeeze in when the children want to get in the shower with you, BUT you will thank us in the years to come. Your skin will be glowing! Your skin will also absorb all the wonderful moisturiser you’re now applying. It will be rid of dead, dull skin and it WILL age better than your friend who doesn’t do it.
Our recommendation is the Three Warriors Sand Scrub. We couldn’t speak more highly of this product actually! Made from Tasmanian sand, Walnut shell and Manuka/Leatherwood honey blend, you will feel like silk! The honey provides nourishment and antioxidants, the Tasmanian sand with vitamins B and E for age-defying and cell damage reducing abilities, and Walnut shell as a natural exfoliation. With close to 100% organic ingredients, it’s a brilliant, non-toxic product that you’ll never regret adding into your skin routine.
This doesn’t all seem too bad does it? Three simple steps to have you glowing your way through summer, and ageing gracefully? Okay, we may have told a tiny fib, there is ONE more, but the fourth step is the most important, and should already be common knowledge to everyone – Sun protection – SPF!! There shouldn’t be a day that goes by that you aren’t adding SPF to your skin. UV exposure is the fastest way to age and damage your skin, and with all the hard work you’re now putting in, it would just be silly to add pigmentation, age spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles to the list. Our UV rays are harsh, and they 100% do damage to our skin, so check out our SPF products here.
Tomorrow morning it’s all happening. As you’re getting ready for your day ahead, take a mental note to care for your entire body (our skin is our largest organ after all) and let’s face it, no one wants a youthful, fresh face, if we need to live in a skivvy for the rest of our lives. Full body hydration is key to healthy, glowing, happy, youthful skin, so let’s get started!
