The Importance of Body Care
Our skin is our primary defense against harmful microbes or bacteria. It’s a tight barrier consisting of diverse communities of beneficial bacteria that protects us from millions of microbes in our environment. So, if our skin is damaged, bacteria and germs can easily infect us, ultimately compromising our immunity.
What are the benefits of body care?
Taking care of the body and skin is part of a healthy lifestyle. If you take the time to do your skincare routine and do it well, you are more likely to make healthier choices. Body care, after all, isn’t just lathering on many products onto your skin to keep it healthy. It also includes eating healthy and exercising. You’ll end up looking AND feeling great, both inside and out. It’ll be a great confidence booster and will result in a happier you.
Additionally, doing body care is an excellent preventative measure. Prevention is better than cure. Wearing sunscreen, washing your face often, and using moisturizing products can save you from invasive and often expensive treatments later when your problems pop up.
Suitable Body Care Products
Now that we’ve discussed the importance of body care, we must discuss the importance of using the best products for your skin. Before you buy famous name brand skincare, consider your skin type. There are thousands of body care products with hosts of ingredients, and depending on your skin type, negative or positive reactions can result.
Types of Skin
Do you have oily skin?
- Avoid products that contain petroleum jelly, artificial dyes, alcohol-based products, rough physical scrubs, and silicones. Instead, opt for skincare products with salicylic acid or natural essences like citrus or jojoba oil.
Do you have dry and sensitive skin?
- Include body lotions and creams infused with natural essential oils that help retain moisture into your skincare routine. Oils such as sunflower oil, coconut oil and/or almond oil.
Do you have normal skin?
- Maintain your normal skin by nourishing it with moisturizing products and wearing sunscreen to protect it from harmful UV rays and to promote radiance.
Body & Skin Care Tips
Our body loses millions of skin cells daily, and the buildup of dead skin cells can make it look dull. Exfoliating often will revive a healthy glow.
Moisturizing after your bath or shower, and when your skin is dry will help to facilitate healthy skin.
Avoid touching your face
Our hands are one of the dirtiest parts of our body. We’re so accustomed to touching everything filled with germs, (doorknobs, toilet handles, wiping our backsides, car doors, retail shopping doors, mucus, etc.) a lot of times we’re unaware of the germs we’re spreading. If we’re not careful to wash our hands, we can spread those germs to our face and cause breakouts, scarring and wrinkles.
Using body care products that promote hydration is good, but an extra boost from drinking around eight glasses of water every day is better.
Maintain a healthy diet
Nourishment from the inside helps a great deal for skincare, too. So eat your greens and food rich in omega-3 fatty acid, which helps retain moisture. Reduce your carb intake as well.
Get Enough Sleep
During sleep, the skin repairs itself by rebuilding collagen, repair damage from UV exposure, and reduces wrinkles.
These suggested practices combined can facilitate healthier body care and skin care. Skincare products don’t often work when one neglects to combine body care. What one consumes inwardly, reflects outwardly. If you’re one who has tried multiple product skincare products and they’ve failed, try implementing the above body care and skin care tips.
So why is body care important?
By caring for your body and skin, a healthier and happier lifestyle are inevitable!
