Estimated Studying Time: 4 minutes
In terms of skincare, we frequently focus extra on our face than our physique. As I get older, I’ve began to develop my curiosity in magnificence to not simply face care but in addition physique care – particularly physique lotions, physique oils and fragrances that elevate my sense of well-being. Six months in the past, I conjured a brand new physique care routine involving exfoliation, therapeutic massage and moisturization to final me via winter. See my guidelines beneath!
I’ve solely tried a black sugar physique scrub earlier than and I used it throughout a shower. A disadvantage I encountered when utilizing a bodily exfoliator like a sugar scrub was the residue left within the tub tub. Sugar dissolves in sizzling water, however there could also be residue left behind that requires cleansing. That’s the place chemical exfoliators come into play, and apparently they’re much less more likely to irritate pores and skin.
I made a decision to attempt CAOLION’s Entire Grain Physique Exfoliator, which is filled with pure components together with extracts from pomegranate, peach, fig, oat, royal jelly, propolis and honey. Providing non-abrasive peeling, this light method is available in a milky liquid with a candy fruit scent. I often spray it over the tough areas of my physique, such because the heels, ankles, legs and elbows. I’d rub softly and tiny white residue would seem inside 30 seconds.
Physique Wash & Exfoliating Towel
Subsequent, it’s time for an intensive cleanse to rinse off all of the residue! Anua’s Heartleaf Zits Physique Wash boasts a delicate and refreshing scent, and the clear gel method is to my liking. It targets backne with soothing natural treatments manufactured from heartleaf, centella asiatica and tea tree extracts. The pH-balanced method additionally contains salicylic acid, AHA, BHA and PHA to slough off lifeless pores and skin cells.
This makes a powerful exfoliating combo with Benton’s Hanji Physique Wash Towel, which is manufactured from 40% paper mulberry bark – the first materials for making premium hanji paper. Light-weight, antibacterial, air permeable and deodorizing, the physique wash towel aids in cleaning and exfoliating pores and skin with out inflicting irritation. The feel seems like a loofah however this hanji wash towel is gentler and simpler to bend.
As soon as every week or at any time when I really feel prefer it, I’d therapeutic massage my decrease again and legs with WellDerma’s Face & Eye Cooling Therapeutic massage Stick. The therapeutic massage stick boasts a flat aluminum backside, a curved deal with and a curler on the tip. The underside is supposed for massaging bigger areas of the face whereas the curler is for massaging the attention space. The steel floor offers an immediate cooling impact. It’s really helpful to refrigerate the massager earlier than use, and to make use of it with an essence to maximise its pore-minimizing impact whereas enhancing absorption of the essence. Nonetheless, because it was wintertime once I examined this machine, I solely used it on my physique. I didn’t put the massager within the fridge and I used it with a physique oil as a substitute of an essence. The oil neutralized its cooling impact and shaped an insulating layer on pores and skin to guard it in opposition to the chilly dry climate.
Physique & Foot Cream
Pyunkang Yul’s Intensive Ceramide Lotion Jumbo is available in a beneficiant 500ml pump bottle, so I used to be lined for moisturizing physique care all through winter. The wealthy and scent-free lotion is filled with ceramide, shea butter, seed oils and hyaluronic acid to seal in moisture. I used the lotion on my total physique alongside Pyunkang Yul’s Softening Foot Cream for my cracked heels throughout the driest months. Coming in a 290ml pump bottle, the foot cream contains not solely the components talked about above for the physique lotion, but in addition urea to melt cuticles and cica and inexperienced tea extracts to assuage pores and skin. Each the physique lotion and foot cream intention to ease itchiness and supply wealthy moisture.
Pores and skin Enhancements Six Months Later
After half a yr of this physique care routine, I used up solely a bit of of CAOLION’s 300ml Entire Grain Physique Exfoliator spray, half of Anua’s 500ml Heartleaf Zits Physique Wash, and three/4 of Pyunkang Yul’s Intensive Ceramide Lotion and Softening Foot Cream.
The exfoliating spray is a little bit of a problem to make use of in comparison with the towel and physique wash. Because the physique wash and towel are efficient in cleaning and eliminating lifeless pores and skin cells, the exfoliating spray felt like an additional step. I’m more than happy with the physique wash, regardless that I believe it’s extra appropriate for summer time than winter.
In the meantime, it appears to be time to switch the Benton hanji towel, which has gotten a bit of darker after six months of use. It’s additionally pilling so much as a result of I’ve thrown it into the washer a number of instances. Lint fell off after a month of use, however the quantity was insignificant and I’ve lower all of it away. The fabric is stretchy so no giant holes appeared within the towel – the misplaced fibers had been stuffed up by the remaining fibers. I like how this exfoliating towel dries rapidly and doesn’t type mildew.
WellDerma’s Face & Eye Cooling Therapeutic massage Stick is designed for the face so its dimension wasn’t supreme for utilizing on the physique like I did. Those that take pleasure in a cooling face therapeutic massage might like its light-weight and compact two-in-one design.
The physique lotion and foot cream didn’t disappoint. Ceramide is a savior for dry and itchy pores and skin, whereas urea softens tough and hardened pores and skin. Such massive bottles of ceramide- and urea-infused physique moisturizers are onerous to come back by. Plus the lotion and foot cream are scent-free!
The exfoliating spray, physique wash and massager are extra appropriate for summer time or these with oily pores and skin, whereas the physique lotion and foot cream are extra appropriate for winter or these with dry pores and skin. The hanji towel is beneficial all yr spherical. I’d gladly repurchase the Pyunkang Yul lotion and cream, the Benton hanji towel and the Anua physique wash.
