Calling all creatures of habit everywhere! Over the past year or so, creating the perfect facial skincare routine was at the top of everyone’s priority list. Now you’ve mastered your facial routine, it’s time to turn our heads to an area we all know and love – our bodies. Some may say that a quick rinse in the shower and slapping on some moisturiser is all you need to do, but if you’re looking to go the extra mile and boost your Vegan skincare routine, you’ve come to the right place…
Read on to discover different vegan skincare routines using our expertly formulated products that work for every personality.
In every bodycare routine you should start with 4 simple steps: Exfoliate, Wash, Moisturise and Nourish. These four steps pave the way to the skin of your dreams, each just as essential as the next.
Exfoliating is the first step to revealing radiant and glowing skin. By removing the dead, dry and dull skin cells from the uppermost layer of your skin, you create a perfectly prepped base that allows your next products to absorb easily. Using a physical exfoliator like a body scrub or tool allows you to physically buff away dead skin cells, whilst a chemical exfoliator encourages skin cell turnover, by breaking the bonds that hold skin cells together. Both work hard to reveal renewed skin, ready for the next step.
It’s no surprise that step number 2 on our list is to Wash. We’ve all been doing it since time began, the only difference today, is the expert products we now have on offer to turn what some may think as a mundane part of their routine into a refreshing bit of ‘me-time’. Ensuring you use a body wash that doesn’t dry your skin is crucial, we want to clean and cleanse the skin as well as hydrate!
Once finished in the shower or bath, the next step is to moisturise. Choosing a moisturiser can be tricky, do you go for a lotion? An oil? A butter? With so many to choose one, narrow down on what texture you prefer and how much nourishment your skin needs. For a thicker, more luxurious texture, choose a butter. For a lightweight, silky texture, go for an oil.
The final step is to nourish the skin. Now, this all depends on what your body needs. Perhaps your skin needs some extra hydration, so you choose to layer an oil on top of your cream. Or your muscles need a little extra love from our cooling Muscle Motivator Revitalising Gel. Listen to your body and give it what it needs!
Now we have the basic’s mastered, let’s discover a routine for every personality!
