6 Steps for Body Care Routine
1. Dry Brushing
The best time to dry brush all of your body would be just before you step into the shower. Firstly, Start from your toes and go upwards towards your head. Start circulating the brush on your feet and just gradually go upwards. You can easily get a dry brush in your local general store or online on Amazon or Vega.
2. Body Scrub
Ever wonder how to get that perfectly smooth, silky, and moisturized body??
We pay a lot of attention to our face, not to the entire body and it is natural as we think the face is something that one sees at first when you meet someone and that is why we focus more on a face rather than the entire body.
However, it is equally important to take care of the rest of your body as well. And body scrub is also best for your skin. Next is, how to use the body scrub the right way so that you can get the best results. You can use any scrub as per your choice. But I prefer using a coffee scrub. I enjoy using the coffee scrub so much. Coffee helps in exfoliating and removing dead skin cells. Coco oil softens, moisture, and nourishes your skin which is equally important. The homemade scrub is natural and free from harsh chemicals such as SLS, and paraben. It smells amazing
Tips for Scrubbing
- Make sure your body is dirt free and wet before applying the scrub. And start scrubbing in a circular motion as it increases blood circulation which is good for the body. It also removes tan from the body, if you use it for a longer period.
- You can start with application on the legs and move upward on the entire body gently. Although this body scrub is not harsh at all, you still need to apply it gently and massage it softly.
- Once you are done with scrubbing wash it off with Luke’s warm water. Wash off the body scrub with warm water only. Do not use cold water.
- Do not overdo it. stick to 1-2 times a week. Otherwise, your skin will become pretty sensitive and I am sure that you don’t want that.
- Always apply good body lotion or butter. Also, apply a good amount of body lotion. You can quickly shave after scrubbing too.
3. Body Wash
Using a body wash to clean your skin is the minimum needed you should do! As soon as you step into the shower, you need to apply early good shower gel. Have a body wash that helps to get rid of dead skin cells on your body and gives you nice nude skin. You can try on fruity fragrances.
If using a body wash after taking a shower makes your skin feel tight and dry, it’s too harsh for you. You might be allergic to your new body wash if you experience itching after using it. As a result, it is critical to have access to a natural and chemical-free facewash, as well as an SLS-free body wash. I understand how difficult it is to find an SLS-free body wash, but these are better for your skin in the long run! The natural ph balance of your skin can be disturbed by SLS!
Now, shaving is not a must in your body care routine. It’s up to your personal preference. If you would like to shave, make sure you cleanse and exfoliate your skin first! As a result, acne won’t appear or the hairs won’t grow back in the incorrect direction
Always follow the direction in which the hair grows when shaving. Ingrown hairs and even folliculitis can result from going the other way. It is advised to use shaving cream to minimize hair damage to follicles.
How to Shave
Wet the desired shaving area with warm water, apply the foam and use the shaver upward. Use the razor in the opposite direction. But in the case of underarms shave upward and downward as the hair growth is all over the area. Also, make sure the face of the razor is flexible so it doesn’t go harsh on the skin. Like knees, ankles, elbows, and underarms. Also, make sure you do not apply pressure on the razor and also do not go too easy on it too. You have to shave your body too lightly.
Yes, it is quite simple, but still, need to take care of certain things before shave that is mentioned next!
Tips for Shaving
How to avoid razor cuts and burn and ingrown hair and the answer to all of that is shaving the right way. If you shave the right way, nothing wrong will gonna happen to you.
- Use a razor that is meant for a woman.
- Use Shavings foam. You can use a natural soap, shower gel, or conditioner to make leather. However, I would suggest buying shaving foam as it is a good purchase. The benefit is it is a great barrier between skin and razor. The skin does not end up getting razor cut and burn.
- Rinse your razor after every use. Once you are done with shaving rinse off the razor and get rid of all the excess that is on the razor. It is Always Better to shave in the shower.
- Next is moisturizing, moisturizing is super important for healthy skin. It is the most important step that you should not miss while shaving. It helps in closing the open pores and acts as a barrier for the dust to your skin. You can use boy’s butter too, but you have to moisture it.
5. A Body Lotion
This is one of the most important steps in this order for the skin-care routine!
You need to moisturize your body every day to get fresh and smooth skin. The best time to apply body lotion is when your body is slightly wet, not completely towel dry. It absorbs better into the skin. Apply a good amount of lotion on the naked body rather than applying the lotion on the visible area of the body after wearing clothes.
6. Apply a Perfume / Body Mist / Roll-on
I am a big fan of travel-friendly perfume as they also offer a good trial to check is a good one or not. A good fragrance level up confidence and most importantly creates a flashback memory too. Whenever we apply the same fragrance, somehow, we go back to previous events and enjoy them again. So, a good fragrance is extremely important.
