How to Start a Body-Care Ritual

Every day, many of us apply multiple serums, creams, masks and oils to our face. But when it comes to skincare and our bodies, it’s easy to fall into an out of sight, out of mind trap. Our body (if it asks nicely) might get a few layers of sunscreen in the summer and perhaps a dab of expired hand cream on extra dry patches. Faces are precious, sure, but they make up a mere 10% of our skin’s real estate. The skin on your body is subject to the same aging processes as your face, so why shouldn’t it get the same loving care? Our body-care products use high-performance ingredients (the same as our skincare) for visibly powerful results on the skin below your neck. Ahead, a very simple body-care routine (it’s just two steps) designed to treat your body how it deserves to be treated for smooth, glowing, ultra-moisturized skin.


Step 1: Exfoliate Your Body



Exfoliation has the same benefits for your body as for the face: smoother, softer, more even-looking texture. It also primes your skin for anything that follows.

The benefits of dry brushing are endless. It wakes up your senses, feels absolutely incredible and leaves you with silky-smooth skin. Before you step into the shower, sweep away dead skin with our Plant-Based Body Brush. Start brushing at the tops of the feet, heading upward toward the heart, and pay extra attention to rough areas like ankles, knees, and elbows. Watch our tutorial here. Our dry brush is the perfect balance of soft yet firm vegan sisal-fiber bristles that feel absolutely fantastic on the skin.

Another option: In the shower, scoop out a healthy dose of Salts of the Earth Body Scrub, which combines mineral-rich salts from around the world with nourishing gigartina seaweed and moisturizing shea butter to polish away every last bit of roughness. This creamy scrub is infused with the most heavenly-smelling lavender and leaves skin feeling astonishingly soft. (Just don’t use this on the same day as your body brush—that can be a little too exfoliating.)

Step 2: Moisturize from Head to Toe


Our bodies need high-performance moisturizers just as much as our faces to hydrate, tone, firm and minimize the effects of aging. After showering, lightly towel off and apply one of our favorites:


Undaria Algae Body Butter



Ultra-rich and utterly moisturizing, this beautifully dense cream transforms dry, crepey skin to soft, smooth and supple. Fast absorbing? Check. Clinically proven to hydrate for 72 hours? Check. High-performance, skincare-level ingredients, like firming DPHP, seaweed, ceramides and whipped shea butter? You bet! And the uplifting scent of freshly picked grapefruit is totally transporting.

Even the most devoted of body lotion lovers will fall for our nongreasy, fast-absorbing oil. We promise it passes the get-dressed test with no waiting period. So you can slip right into your jeans or crawl into your freshly made bed right after application.

Anti-Aging Body Balm

If your skin is extra dry, consider our intensely moisturizing lotion-and-oil hybrid the magic fix. This silky, youth-restoring elixir sinks right in, transforming dry skin to supple and radiant. In fact, in a third-party study, 81% of participants agreed that skin felt tighter, lifted and more toned after just four weeks.* Coconut oil, passion fruit, Alaria esculenta algae, omega fatty acids, minerals and antioxidants are all packed into one softening and smoothing liquid balm. Inhale a bit of the addictive jasmine-and-geranium scent and you’ll wonder just how you ever lived without it.
