Do This In Your Body Care Routine for Ultra Hydrated & Glowing Skin

If you dream of soft and supple skin, try incorporating these tips into your body care routine. The skin’s natural barrier - which is made up of fatty acids, ceramides and cholesterol - is vital in locking moisture into the skin and preventing water loss. In order to achieve dewy and plump skin all over your body, it’s important to focus on repairing and fortifying your skin’s barrier. Read on to discover how to gain perfectly hydrated skin from top to toe.


While piping hot showers and baths feel undeniably good in the moment, they can wreak havoc on the skin and its barrier function. Prolonged exposure to hot water can be incredibly drying. Unfortunately, the higher the temperature, the more oil and moisture escapes from the skin. Instead, try to stick to lukewarm showers and baths. 


Support your skin’s hydration with a varied diet rich in essential fatty acids. Extra virgin olive oil (we love GOLDEN GROVES) is a godsend for dry skin. Use it in your cooking or take at least 1 tablespoon a day to quench skin from within. Other great foods include avocados, nuts, fatty fish and fish oil, and citrus fruits high in vitamin c.


It goes without saying, but hydrated skin is impossible without a body moisturiser. Look for one that’s pH-balanced and formulated with plant-based ingredients. Apply it while the skin is still damp to optimise its hydrating properties. Our BODY MOISTURISER infuses the skin with naturally active ingredients and proven hydrators for a radiant glow.  


As we age, our cell renewal cycle slows. This can lead to a build-up of dead skin, resulting in dry, rough and flaky skin. We recommend exfoliating the body two - three times per week. It will help your moisturiser to absorb better and keep you hydrated for longer. A gentle and considered formulation, our BODY POLISH contains both physical and chemical exfoliators.


Many body washes that have a high foam lather contain harsh ingredients that can strip the skin of its natural oils, ultimately interfering with the delicate balance of the barrier and eventuating in dryness and dehydration. Instead, opt for a gentle soap-free cleanser. Those that are marketed as suitable for use with eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis are generally reliable and safe.
