We have talked a lot lately about taking care of your face, but what about the rest of your body? Our skin is our largest organ, it protects us from the elements and many toxins that we come in contact with daily. What can we do to make sure that you are giving it the TLC it deserves? 1. Dry Brushing We did a post on this a few months ago, you can check it out here https://indigenaskincare.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/dry-brushing-101/
Dry brushing not only makes your skin look amazing, but its great for your health too. It stimulates your lymphatic system, in turn removing toxins. It exfoliates, reduces cellulite, provides stress relief and can actually improve digestion. Give it a try, after a couple weeks you'll be hooked! 2. Stay Hydrated We can't state it enough but proper hydration is not only important for your health but your skin too! Drinking water removes waste and toxins from your body, lubricates joints and makes your skin look great. Drink up!
Moisture, moisture, moisture!!! One of the easiest things you can do to improve the appearance of your skin! There's nothing better than the look of soft, smooth legs and arms, right? Our Multipurpose lotion is a light moisturizer which keeps you feeling soft all day. Another option which feels super luxurious is our Après Sport Massage Melt. It's a combination of coconut and grapeseed oils. It comes in a solid state, simply place it in the shower or bath with you (unopened) or run it under warm water and it will liquefy. It leaves your skin buttery smooth, and did I mention it smells amazing? 3. Exfoliate This is something that many people overlook but is so important! Your skin on your body can look dry and dull the same as your face.
Taking the time once or twice a week will greatly improve the look and feel of your skin. Blueberry Bliss Sugar Scrub is your perfect choice. Made with blueberry seeds and sweet orange oil it honestly smells good enough to eat! Its a gently exfoliant which buffs away dead skin revealing soft, smooth skin. 4. Soak Taking a bath is one of life's little luxuries. It's even better when you add bath salts such as our Post Workout Bath Soak.
Made with tri-colored seaweed, orange essential oils and sea salts this soak is sure to relieve tension and leave your skin feeling super soft. It naturally exfoliates, removes toxins and relaxes, which is what we all want right?
Once a month its a great idea to do an all over body treatment. Our Sea Veggie Treatment has just what you need. Made with coconut oil, rooibos tea extract and seaweed this treatment draws toxins from skin, leaving you nourished and hydrated. It can be used in a body wrap treatment which can actually leave you looking toned and lean, or sprinkled into bath water for an easy treatment. I hope you will take the time this week to give your body the love it (and you) deserve!! XO Jasmin
