When it comes to skincare, oftentimes we spend a lot of time and energy caring for our face and relatively little time caring for the skin on the rest of our body. While it is true that the skin on your body is more resilient to the elements than your delicate facial skin, your whole body needs nourishment too. The skin on your arms and legs is exposed more often to the sun, environmental pollutants, and constant friction from our clothing. This can cause wrinkles, discoloration, sagging skin, and irritation. Winter and summer climates can both wreak havoc on our skin for very different reasons; causing our skin to become sunburned, dehydrated, cracked, and flaky.
The solution? Care for the skin on your body as much as you care for your face! There are many so called “organic” and “natural” products on the market that are really just filled with cheap preservatives, toxic chemicals, and worthless fillers that can actually create more problems for your skin. Truly organic body lotions are a fantastic way to feed your skin and keep it looking and feeling like a million bucks. Organic lotions utilize powerful fruit and vegetable carrier oils, butters, and essential oils in order to transform your skin without harsh chemicals. What’s more, these nutrient-dense natural ingredients (like coconut oil, avocado oil, shea butter, and rosehip seed oil) actually alter your skin’s chemical balance from the inside out. Over time, you can actually improve the health and quality of your skin—not just its superficial appearance.
