In good weather, the body’s skin, which is covered and forgotten most of the year, takes on a magnificent appearance. Although we should take care of her all year round, few give her the same attention as her face.
Things as they are: We are not as attentive to the body’s skin as to the face. The pharmacist Rocío Escalante, the Arbosana Pharmacy and expert in dermopharmaci, tells us how to take care of her, so she looks best this summer.
Invest In A Good Gel Suitable For Your Skin
Personal hygiene should begin with daily hygiene. Choosing a gel that does not damage the skin barrier is important. For this, it must be formulated with a pH as close as possible to the skin (5.5). You don’t have to use too much soap, and you don’t have to apply it all over your body every day.
It would be enough to do it in the armpits and genital area (because here, it is better to choose an intimate gel). The water temperature should be quite lukewarm and not exceed 37°C.
Moisturizes The Skin Of The Body Daily
Like on the face, we should use a body moisturizer every day after showering. Hydration prevents the skin from drying out and the unsightly white scales from appearing. There are different types of body creams and textures to adjust the hydration according to the needs of our skin.
Exfoliate Once A Week
The peeling helps to remove dead cells, activates blood circulation, homogenizes the skin and makes it more hydrated, radiant and beautiful. Choose a body scrub and apply gently with a light circular massage, insisting on areas that tend to be dry, such as elbows, laps or feet.
Use Anti-Cellulite And Firming Creams
To achieve firmer skin, it is advisable to use specific cosmetics such as anti-cellulite and firming products with regular exercise and a balanced diet.
