PSA: Skincare for the Body is a Thing

Photo: Sora Shimazaki / PexelsQuick question: since our skin is our largest organ, why does skincare end at our necks? We spend so much time and energy custom-tailoring our skincare routines to fit our skin’s needs to a tee but expect moisturizers to be the end-all-be-all for the rest of our bodies. That changes now—enter body serums and treatments.

Just like facial serums, body serums and treatments deliver active ingredients (think hyaluronic acid, AHAs, etc.) to spot-treat and address any specific skin concerns, like dryness or dullness. Even if you’re using a moisturizer with active ingredients, serums are much more concentrated and include higher levels for better results.

Just like the face, you want to layer your products from lightest to heaviest (serums/treatments, then moisturizers) for best results. Post-cleanse, your skin will soak the serums right up, so you can follow with a moisturizer and voilà, you’re done! Ready to make it that simple? Here are the top serums and treatments, based on skin concerns.

For bright, even-toned skin

Advanced forms of acids, like tranexamic, can help improve the appearance of dark spots, age spots, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. They sink in instantly to help fade stubborn discoloration and reveal a clear, even skin tone.

For toned, firm-looking skin

Ingredients such as caffeine, powerful antioxidants, and marine extracts can help firm, tone, and define the appearance of skin. These effective ingredients will stimulate the lymphatic system and de-puff for visibly smoother and firmer skin.

For smoother-looking skin

A resurfacing serum is the perfect way to combat bumpiness, especially on rough areas, like elbows and knees. A chemical exfoliator formulated with acids will gently remove dead skin cells and leave you with glowing, beautiful skin.

For calm, soothed skin

Just like your mind and face, CBD’s calming and soothing properties can relax irritated skin when applied topically. High-quality, full-spectrum CBD penetrates deep in the skin to reveal soft, radiant skin.

For youthful-looking skin

If you’re after younger-looking skin, an anti-aging treatment will do the trick. The ideal formula balances highly active compounds with nutrient-rich oils to diminish signs of aging and restore elasticity for supple, visibly firmer skin.
