Body skincare is equally as important as your facial skincare, if not more. But most of us continue to ignore it. We often stress so much about the face, there is no time and energy left for the body skin. While your body may not be exposed to as much sun and air pollution as your face, sagginess, dullness, and discolouration exist below the neck too. Wedding Affair lists some of the ways in which you can take the best care of your skin!
Why is Body Skincare Important?
The same way your face requires TLC to look and feel its best so does your body. “The body is often an area that gets overlooked,” says Alabama-based board-certified dermatologist Julie Harper, M.D. “When an older patient comes in for a full-body skin check, the best-looking skin is on their abdomen and/or behind, which has been protected for the majority of their life, as opposed to their arms, legs, shoulders, and back of their hands, which have often been neglected.” NYC-based dermatologist Dendy Engelman, M.D., adds, “The face is not the only area that is susceptible to skin issues, like skin cancer, age spots, acne, skin disorders (such as rosacea or eczema), dry patches or flakiness, redness, and saggy skin.” As such, it’s important to know how to properly care for your skin from head to toe, as well as which skincare products will bring about the best results.

Cleansing the Body
Maybe because we’re busy piling stuff onto our faces, we don’t notice all the terrible ingredients in our body wash. Perfumes, dyes, and harsh soaps like sodium lauryl sulphate are all very common and may dry out your skin. For people with even more sensitive skin, these might be the root cause of your skin irritation or allergic reactions. Instead, choose products with a gentler cleanser like sodium lauroyl isethionate. “You should also look for moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, ceramides, and plant oils like argan, safflower, avocado, and olive,” recommends Debra Jaliman, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and author of Skin Rules: Trade Secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist.

Shaving is a good option for those with lighter coloured hair on body. Try Gillette Venus Swirl, which gets into tricky areas easily thanks to its flexible ball handle. Darker, denser hair? Try at-home waxing. Nair Salon Divine Milk and Honey Roll-on Wax contains hydrating sugars and can be used on legs, bikini and underarms. For something more permanent, try the SmoothSkin Bare Long Term Hair Removal System. This IPL system has an ultra-fast speed and takes less than 10 minutes to complete one treatment. For delicate areas, use Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler. (Source: Beauty crew)
