Welcome to our final New Year, New You Skin Care Tips post! We hope you’ve enjoyed reading about how you can perfect your skin care regimen. If you missed the rest of the series, you can still find our posts on Cleansing, Moisturizing, Eye Skin Care, and Natural Ingredients

The last installment in our series is all about body skin care. Lots of people (mainly women) enjoy using body lotion, but most people wouldn’t list body skin care high on their list of priorities. The fact is, the skin of the body is usually lower maintenance that the skin on the face, so people tend to forget or ignore their body.

This is unfortunate for several reasons, the main one being that the body does need to be cared for! It’s still prone to environmental and free radical damage, visible signs of aging, breakouts, skin conditions, and more. Using a daily body skin care regimen can help keep the skin on the body healthy, radiant, and protect against premature signs of aging. 

The good news is that, even a “complete” body care regimen is very simple. Within the Raw Essentials line, we actually think you can care for the body entirely with two simple products. Here’s a look at what they are, what they do, and why you should use them.

Balancing Body Wash
Our Balancing Body Wash is a gentle yet thorough body cleanser formulated without the use of harsh chemical soaps or foaming agents. A sugar-derived blend provides a velvety foaming texture that effortlessly removes excess oils, body odors, debris, and dirt. Our certified raw complex provides and locks in moisture, leaving skin feeling hydrated and soft. The fragrance-free formula promises results without irritation, making Balancing Body Wash a perfect choice for all skin types.

On top of all these great benefits, a blend of natural skin care extracts and oils (tamanu, monoi, and hibiscus) work together to nourish skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, even the skin’s tone, and deeply moisturize. After just one use, this body wash will leave skin feeling softer than ever!

Body Oil
The Raw Essentials Body Oil is simultaneously one of our most misunderstood and most beloved skin care products. Those who haven’t used it imagine a greasy, heavy product that leaves them feeling slimy and anything but beautiful. Those who have used it will never go back to traditional body moisturizers, creams, or lotions. 

Our Body Oil is actually a very lightweight blend of nourishing natural skin care oils that absorb quickly and completely. When applied to slightly damp skin, the oil begins absorbing instantly to seal in hydration and begin nourishing the skin. Once fully absorbed, the skin takes on an incredibly silky texture and radiant appearance that can only be achieved with our special blend of oils.

This blend of skin care oils includes sesame seed, grape seed, avocado, evening primrose, borage seed, tamanu, and coconut oil. These oils are some of the most sought-after oils for skin care and provide an incredible slew of moisturizing and nourishing benefits. 

By using only our fabulous body wash and body moisturizer, you’ll see smoother, softer, and more radiant skin in just two simple daily steps. On top of the easily achieved benefits, you can purchase both of these body products for only $35 — less than what you would pay for just one overpriced body lotion from other skin care lines.

Last but definitely not least, you can still take advantage of our great New Year, New You sale, but HURRY!

You pamper your face with rich skin care moisturizers and anti-aging products, but do you properly care for the skin on your body? Your body needs more than the occasional dousing of lotion — if you want the skin on your body to be as soft, radiant, and healthy as the skin on your face, follow these tips…

Protect against sun damage. Too often, we apply an SPF to our face, neck, and chest, but leave the rest of our body exposed to UV damage! This is what leads to premature skin aging, wrinkles, fine lines, leathery texture, hyperpigmentation and more. If you’d like to keep your body looking youthful and healthy, be sure to protect it by wearing weather-appropriate clothing and applying an SPF to exposed skin.

Cleanse right. A lot of mainstream soaps and body wash products are very stripping on the skin. Most of them contain sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate, an extreme irritant that is also used in floor cleaners and grease removal products! Instead, be sure to use a gentle body cleanser that will benefit your skin while it cleanse. Our Balancing Body Wash, for example, protects the skin with antioxidants while nourishing and moisturizing with a blend of natural oils. The skin is left soft, pure, and gorgeous.

Moisturize every day! When you use your daily face moisturizer, use your body moisturizer, too. Whether you use a body lotion, body cream, or body oil, the skin on your body needs to be properly hydrated and protected against moisture loss. This will keep skin supple, soft, and radiant, while also reinforcing the skin’s natural defenses against aggressors.

If you follow these three simple steps, your skin will look healthier than ever, and premature signs of aging won’t even be on your radar!
