While taking care of the face and the neck area is all too common, most people end up ignoring the rest of their body. However, like the skin on your face, the skin on your body also renews itself at regular intervals and grows old when it is damaged by things like sun damage, free radical damage, etc. Taking care of your facial area might be your main priority and it might be a delicate and complex task as well, but taking care of your body is also important. Luckily, taking care of your body is much simpler. This body care guide from Vine Vera helps you understand what body care products you need to add into your daily routines to be able to ensure that you have smooth and beautiful looking skin all over.
Step 1 – Shower Gel/ Soaps
Using a shower gel or a soap helps you to cleanse the skin on your body. The debate on whether to use soaps, shower gels or body washes has already been waging for a decade and it can go on for another decade. We would advise our readers not to become victims to leading advertising and marketing campaigns and base their decisions on their skin type. In other words, the best solution is to choose products that suit your skin type the best. Remember, whether you choose a soap or a body wash, your skin is likely to end up becoming dry because of the loss of moisture. This is why using moisturizers after taking a shower is so important.
Step 2 – Body Scrubs
Body scrubs help you make your skin look rejuvenated within moments. You need to understand that the skin on your body also sheds itself and gives way to new skin. Therefore, exfoliating the skin on your body is as important as exfoliating the skin on your face. One of the simplest and fastest way to exfoliate the skin on your body is to use a body scrub. It not only speeds up the skin renewal process by removing the outermost layer of your skin, it also ensures that the skin looks soft and supple. We suggest that you use the Vine Vera Body Care Collection Body Scrub to scrub the skin on your body. Like all our skin care products, this body scrub also contains the much loved ingredient, Resveratrol. All you need to do is apply the scrub on your body while in the shower and rub it gently. Rinse off with warm water and follow with the Vine Vera Body Butter for best results.
Step 3 – Body Moisturizers
Moisturizing the body is the best way to ensure that your skin looks soft and supple. You can think of moisturizing as applying the final coat of wax on your car or the final coat of paint on the wall to give it its sheen. Ideally, moisturizers should always be applied to damp skin, right after you come out of a bath. Most people end up using their facial moisturizers on their body. However, we would always suggest you to use a dedicated body cream because the facial moisturizers might not necessarily meet the requirements of the skin on the rest of your body. The Vine Vera Body Care Collection Body Cream also contains Resveratrol like all other products offered by Vine Vera. The cream helps the skin on your body to look and feel moisturized and also allows you to look younger with regular application. All you need to do is apply the cream to freshly cleansed and moist cream by massaging it onto the skin in small circular motions.
Step 3 – Body Butter (Alternate Option)
The Vine Vera Body Care Collection Intensive Body Butter helps you to make your skin look perfectly moisturized and beautiful. This body butter also contains Resveratrol, an ingredient that has continually been linked with anti-aging skin care. All you need to do is apply the body butter after drying your skin with a towel and allow it to dry off completely. Take special care of areas that are prone to dryness such as your knees and elbows.
Step 4 – Foot Cream
Your feet are an integral part of your body and things like cracked feet are among the first things that people notice about you. To save yourself the embarrassment of having to walk around with dry or cracked feet, make sure that you make use of a foot cream to soothe and moisturize the skin on your feet. Remember, the skin on your feet undergoes constant damage because of things like walking, jogging or exercising. Using a specialty foot cream such as the Vine Vera Foot Cream shall allow you to make your feet look and feel hydrated and rejuvenated.
Step 5 – Manicures and Pedicures
Don’t forget to complete the perfect body routine with a well timed manicure and pedicure. The Vine Vera Exquisite Manicure Set allows you to enjoy a salon-quality experience and offers you with a nail file, a 3-step buffer and a Hand & Body lotion. The Hand & Body Lotion acts as a moisturizer and helps you to make the skin on your hands and feet look smoother and softer.
Following this simple but effective body care guide can help you ensure that the skin on your body stays as beautiful and healthy as the skin on your face and that you don’t have to feel shy every time you plan to hit the beach or the swimming pool.
