Let's confess, we often focus so much on our face, neck, and chest that we forget the other 80% of our body.
But if we want to age well and be comfortable in our skin, even in a bathing suit or shorts until we are 80, then we gotta take care of our bodies.
Here are some good body-care basics: - Use gentle lotion cleanser or gentle soap – and only wash the armpits, groin and head and neck area. Don’t “soap” the limbs or trunk – you need your natural oils. - Take shorter showers or baths (3-10 minutes). Keep in mind that hotter water is more drying. - Once or twice a week, GENTLY exfoliate your body with a wash cloth or gentle loofah. A harsher salt scrub may be used once a month. - Every day and every time you get out of the bath or slower, lube your entire body with cream or lotion. Use some organic ones. - If you have dry skin, creams and oils are better for your skin than lotions.Oils can be good also, like the apricot body oil, or one based on jojoba oil. The apricot is nice and won’t get your clothes oily. - If you are very dry, use creams or glycolic-based body moisturizers. - If you get a rash, it’s typically because you are over scrubbing or allergic to something in the product you’re using. If it’s not gone in a day or two after you’ve stopped using the product, see your doctor.
