body_backWhen it comes to beauty and fashion magazines, the focus on skincare always seems to be on the skin on our faces. Most articles generally revolve around solving common issues like acne, dryness and preventing aging and fine lines. There’s a plethora of knowledge when it comes to facial skincare, such as what products to use and what techniques to swear by.

However, when it comes to the skin on our bodies, many fashion and beauty publications seem to be pretty quiet on the subject. For many of us, we have our facial skincare regimen under control, but we need some major help when it comes to the skin that covers the rest of us. Here are three ways to improve the skin on your body and ensure that you are smooth and glowing from head to toe.

 

Remove Pesky Body Hair

For most women, their biggest body skin concern is unwanted hair growth. While shaving and waxing can help the issue in the short term, it does nothing to provide one with long term results. To ensure your body hair will never grow back, it is high advisable for you to opt for IPL hair removal.

Hair removal in Singapore in the form of laser treatments might seem like a pricy and time-consuming investment, but once you’ve finished with treatments, you’ll enjoy a shorter amount of time that you have to spend in the shower and you’ll never have to spend money on waxing or shaving again.

Get Rid Of Dry, Flaky Skin

If your skin feels dry and flaky, then you probably need to exfoliate and moisturize. Exfoliating entails using a rough sponge or body scrub in the shower to slough away dead skin and flakiness. Scrub in gentle yet firm circular motions, but avoid scrubbing to the point where your skin becomes red or tender to the touch, as this can actually exacerbate skin problems.

When you get out of the shower, apply a thick body butter or luxurious body oil when your skin is still slightly damp. In a few weeks, you’ll enjoy skin that is softer and smoother.

Say Goodbye To Body Breakouts

Acne and blemishes aren’t always limited to the face. For many women, acne can pop up all over their bodies. You don’t have to pay for those pricy products that are specially designed for body breakouts; indeed, the products you use for your face will do just fine. After showering and completely drying off, soak a cotton round in anti-acne toner, preferably one that contains salicylic acid. Apply on areas where you are experiencing breakouts. Let it sink in for about ten minutes and then follow up with your normal body lotion or cream.

 

 

If you follow these three tips, you’ll see smoother, hairless and blemish skin after a few months. It’s important that you give the skin on your body the same love and care that you give to the skin on your face.
