Tried And Tested: Body Care Essentials For Your Softest Skin Yet

Skin is skin – just as you follow a facial care routine comprising a cleanser, exfoliator, and hydrator, you must tend to your body, too. Over the years, the body care category has grown exponentially; beauty brands are expanding their product range with the pursuit of extending ‘skincare’ to your body. Why the boom in body care, you ask? Why not? A little TLC can go a long way for smooth and supple skin.

If you’ve not yet invested in the body care market, consider this your cue to curate a regimen today. After much deliberation and sifting through a couple dozen brands and products, I’ve rounded up my absolute favourites that cater to all my body care needs. A truly indulgent bathing experience awaits you, dearest reader.

Dry Brushing: House of Beauty Dry Brush

Upgrade your ‘everything shower’ with the ultimate exfoliating tool – dry brushing sloughs off the day’s dirt, grime, and grease from your arms, legs, ankles, elbows, and back. House of Beauty’s Dry Brush boasts 100% natural bristles, facilitating blood circulation, lymphatic flow, and cellulite reduction. Indulge in this self-care ritual, even if for just a few minutes, for smooth, glowing skin. A couple of minutes of dry brushing daily pre-shower is all it takes for enhanced skin vitality and a revitalised skin experience.

Prepared with 100% natural Turkish silk, Ghar Soaps’ Exfoliating Bath Glove guarantees gentle yet effective exfoliation sans any chemical-laden formulas. Unlike dry brushing – which predominantly eliminates dead skin cells and impurities – this exfoliating glove curbs acne, ingrown hair, stretch marks, and scarring. Plus, it helps remove tan and promotes collagen and elastin production! I swear by this, and so will you.

Body Scrub: MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Body Scrub

A bestseller I was aching to try, I have restocked MCaffeine’s Coffee Body Scrub a couple of times already – and I’d be lying if I told you I’m not obsessed. After recommended use, 97% of consumers have stated that it effectively eliminates dead skin and tan, and I can attest to this claim. After the not-too-rough granules slough off impurities, coconut oil ensures your skin recoups its moisture. And if you’re a coffee lover, the aroma will have you sold.

Body Exfoliator: Minimalist 11% Glycolic + Tranexamic Body Exfoliator

If your sensitive skin cannot handle the tug and tear of dry brushing and an exfoliating bath glove, turn to a mild AHA-BHA exfoliator with 8% glycolic acid and 3 % tranexamic acid. Minimalist’s efficacious formula evens skin tone while promoting cell turnover and regulating sebum production. By delivering multi-level exfoliation to all skin types, the concentration inhibits melanin synthesis and brightens your complexion, too.

Body Polish: Dove Exfoliating Body Polish

Don’t we all love and trust Dove; their nourishing body polish lends a divine scent, boasting skin-loving, natural nutrients that efficiently exfoliate dull and lifeless skin to reveal an unmistakable luminosity. The emollient polish features a rich and creamy texture that leaves your skin soft to the touch, stored in a 100% recycled jar. Crushed lavender and coconut milk have got to be my favourite from their line-up.
