Today we bring you the final installment in our New Year, New You Series. It’s been so fun to rebuild our ideas of skin care from the ground up, and we hope that you’ve learned a little bit along the way! If you missed the rest of the series, you can catch up by visiting the New Year, New You posts on Skin Cleansing, Moisturizing, Eye Care, and Building a Regimen.
When it comes to body skin care, most people think of a simple body lotion…Or nothing at all! The skin of the body isn’t as delicate or fussy as the skin on the face, so it’s easy to forget that the body needs skin care, too. This is especially true for those who suffer from psoriasis or eczema, though those people rarely have the luxury of forgetting to care for the skin on their body.
The good news is, even if you do suffer from an uncomfortable skin condition on the body, treatment usually only takes place once or twice a day. Additionally, the skin care products and application process takes far less time. So, without further ado, here are Atopalm’s body skin care tips.
1) Cleanse Gently
Whether you start or end your day with a shower, be sure to choose a gentle cleanser that does little more than remove dirt, debris, sweat, and body odor. A body wash or soap shouldn’t contain harsh ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate, which will strip and damage skin. Instead, choose a body cleanser made from coconut, castile, or another natural source.
2) Dry Sparingly
If you’re sure to remove every droplet of water from your body as soon as you step out of the shower, it’s time to change your routine. Excessively rubbing the body with a towel is damaging enough, but by removing all the moisture from your skin, you’re actually doing yourself a great disservice by taking away a great hydration source!
Instead of thoroughly drying your body after bathing, gently press your towel against your skin to remove excess moisture, while still leaving it a bit damp. While your skin is damp and you’re still in a steam-filled bathroom, move on to step number…
3) Moisturize Damp Skin
Moisturizing damp skin is so much better than applying a moisturizer to bone-dry skin. It seals in the moisture on the skin’s surface, which provides an immediate boost of hydration. It also keeps skin from becoming irritated by towel drying, and leaves the skin less vulnerable to damage cause between bathing and applying skin care products.
This tip is true for both body and face, but since we’re focusing on body skin care today, let’s talk about the types of products that are great for applying to damp skin.
For overall body skin care, our Moisturizing Body Lotion is an obvious must. Formulated with MLE, glycerin, allantoin, vitamin E and more, our body lotion provides unparalleled moisture while protecting and soothing the entire body. Skin care antioxidants and humectants keep skin feeling hydrated and comfortable all day long, and the body will take on a healthy and beautiful glow.
For more targeted body care, some like to add in our advanced Moisturizing Hand Treatment and Foot and Heel Balm. The Moisturizing Hand Treatment is the best hand moisturizer you’ll ever use. Imagine wrapping your hands in a layer of silk that instantly soothes feelings of dryness, roughness, and stinging — that’s what you’ll experience with Moisturizing Hand Treatment.
The Foot and Heel Balm is perfect for everyone from causal foot cream users to those suffering from dry, cracked heels and even diabetic foot problems. It heals cracked skin, softens calloused skin, and protects against future discomfort, resulting in well-rounded treatment.
