Plus, the products you should add to your daily routine.

While you may have 25 different skincare products for your face, your body care routine might consist of just a body wash and lotion. And this makes sense: the skin on your face is more sensitive and more prone to irritation compared to that of your body. That said, you can really benefit from a well-thought-out body care regimen, especially if you want smooth and even skin. Below, we put together an easy yet extensive routine that you can customize depending on the problems you’d like to tackle.

The Basic Body Skin Care Routine You Need to Have Now

Step 1: Cleanser

This step is the foundation of your body care routine, so it’s important to start out strong. Avoid soaps and cleansers formulated with harsh ingredients and are overly perfumed. These factors can irritate and dry out your skin, and even ruin your skin’s barrier. If your skin feels a little too squeaky clean when you get out of the shower, consider switching your body wash.

Generally, you’ll want to use a body wash free from sulfates. The NANU Spring Body Wash has a clean formula and a fresh scent you’ll love. It’s also free from parabens and comes in a pink aluminum bottle that you can return once it’s empty.

If you have sensitive skin, try a gentle, fragrance-free body wash, like the Dove Body Wash for Sensitive Skin. It has a hypoallergenic formula and mild soap that can gently cleanse and nourish your skin.

Meanwhile, if you struggle with rough skin and body acne, you can try a body wash formulated with acids that can help treat these issues. The Mario Badescu A.H.A Botanical Body Soap is formulated with alpha-hydroxy acids from grapefruit and papaya to help treat acne and keep breakouts at bay. It’s also gentle enough to use daily.

Step 2: Treatment

Actives aren’t just for your face—you can use them to target issues on your body, too. You’d be surprised by the number of problem-solving products specifically made for your body (no need to use your expensive facial serum on your legs!). 

Take, for example, your deodorant. You can find a ton of deos that address dark underarms and rough skin. We enjoy using the Rexona Advanced Brightening + Anti-Stain Deodorant. It contains sunflower seed oil, which is rich in fatty acids that help make the skin more resilient. It also has lemon extract and vitamins C, E, and F to help brighten the skin and reduce dark marks.

If you’re struggling with dark spots and an uneven skin tone in other parts of your body, try the Two Lips Undercover Peptide 36 Anti-Blemish Cream. This brand specializes in products made for your vulva, but their products can be used on the rest of your body and even your face, too. The Anti-Blemish Cream is formulated with Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-3 to help diminish blemishes and hyperpigmentation. The result? Even skin and less breakouts.

For stubborn acne, try the Oxecure Body Acne Spray. It has salicylic acid, which can help dry out acne and control sebum production, and aloe vera and witch hazel, which can help smooth and brighten breakouts.

Step 3: Moisturizer

Prevent dry skin and achieve a smooth texture by moisturizing your body every day and night. Unlike your face, your body is probably less picky with the ingredients you use, and you can experiment with heavier emollients like oils and butters. 

A cult classic body butter we can’t get enough of is the Palmer’s Original Cocoa Butter Formula. It can smooth and relieve rough, dry skin thanks to its emollient-rich formula. It’s also a great option if you have eczema and it has a delicious cocoa scent that you’ll absolutely love.

Want to stick with something more lightweight? Try a thin lotion like the Cetaphil Brightening Body Lotion. It has a lightweight formula that contains niacinamide and sea daffodil to help brighten your skin and also protect sensitive areas.

Step 4: Sun Protection

Just like your face, your body needs sun protection, too. Sun damage might not be as obvious on your body as it is on your skin, but it’s still important to do what you can to protect your body from sun burns and UV radiation.
A great everyday option is the Supergoop! Play Everyday Lotion. It’s fast-absorbing, non-greasy, and sweat resistant. It can also help protect you from photoaging and dehydration.

If you’re out a lot, try the VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Sport 70. It’s lightweight but has a high SPF of 70 to screen UVA and UVB rays. It creates a “second skin” effect that only protects your skin’s barrier, but also helps you feel smooth and comfortable.

Optional Step: Wax

To avoid bumpy skin and ingrown hairs, opt to wax over shave. Waxing removes hair from the follicle, so you won’t get hard stubble that could curl back into your skin and cause ingrown hairs. Waxing can also remove dead skin cells, resulting in soft, smooth skin.

For all our waxing needs, we go to Lay Bare. Their aestheticians use a patented cold wax jelly, so you won’t run the risk of getting burns. Plus, Lay Bare also has packages that allow you to make the most out of your waxing sesh. Try Cool Package 1 (P1,200), which includes full leg wax, Brazilian wax, underarm wax, and eyebrow threading.
