Treat your skin to some easy three-step lovin’

OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

W e know the drill when it comes to fa­cial skin­care: cleanse, tone, mois­turise. But when it comes to our bod­ies, it’s fair to say it prob­a­bly feels a lit­tle

STEP 1 EX­FO­LI­ATE

If you suf­fer from rough, dry skin that n no amount of mois­tur­is­ing can help, it’s like likely y you’ve been skip­ping ex­fo­li­at­ing. This st step buffs away dead skin cells to leave y you with ne­glected. If you’ve been hid­ing your legs all win­ter and are in panic mode now the sun’s out, don’t stress! We’ve taken it back to ba­sics with a sim­ple and speedy three-step guide that will leave your skin beau­ti­fully soft and smooth. Af­ter all, morn­ings are hard enough…

a smooth sur­face. Once wet, start by us­ing your hand or an ex­fo­li­at­ing brush or glove to rub your scrub of choice in cir­cu­lar mo­tions from top to toe. This will not only leave your skin feel­ing su­per-soft, but also al­low other prod­ucts to pen­e­trate the skin bet­ter.

STEP 2 CLEANSE

Daily grime and dirt doesn’t just af­fect your face. Get the most out of your body wash by opt­ing for for­mu­las that well clean as nour­ish skin deeply, and as pro­tect with nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents that won’t ir­ri­tate even the most sen­si­tive skin. Want to up the hy­dra­tion ante? Mois­tur­is­ing in­gre­di­ents such as she but­ter will give an added boost.

STEP 3 MOIS­TURISE

Warmer weather means it’s im­por­tant to keep your body hy­drated be­cause the sun, sand and air con­di­tion­ing cause skin to dry out. For very patchy skin, a body but­ter or yo­ghurt will be best. If you’re time-poor or hate the feel­ing of sticky mois­turiser on your skin, try a dry-oil spray to help you get dressed quicker.
