While it may seem obvious that we should take care of the skin on our bodies the same way we do our face, the less front-and-center areas often go untended. But it’s worth incorporating body skincare into your routine.
Luckily, a body regimen doesn’t differ too much from a face routine, so it will feel familiar. Rabach says it's important to moisturize every day, and exfoliate at least twice a week to keep skin looking healthy. For further care, she recommends turning to chemical body peels at a dermatologist’s office for the neck, chest, back, arms, butt, and legs.
Here are some options that you can buy and treat your body like it truly deserves.

1. SkinCeuticals LHA Cleanser Gel
SkinCeuticals' LHA Cleanser Gel is a deep-digging facial wash that penetrates your pores to decongest and offer cell-by-cell exfoliation, while washing away impurities. A combination of LHA, glycolic and salicylic acid encourage cell renewal resulting in more refined skin texture, even skin tone and a brighter appearance.
2. Skinfix Foaming Clay Cleanser
Healthy, radiant skin starts with a healthy skin barrier. Traditional clay cleansers and masks often strip the skin, leaving it feeling tight and dry. Skinfix Foaming Clay Cleanser uses natural coconut cleansers and the power of clay to gently remove dead skin cells from the face leaving skin calm and smooth. Our mineral-rich Healthy Skin Clay Complex is a special blend of Canadian Glacier and Brazilian Volcanic clays, which gently absorb dirt, makeup and impurities from the skin. Concentrated Aloe Vera and Sugar Beet Extracts are powerful humectants that provide long lasting moisturization by helping skin maintain proper water balance.* The beauty of Skinfix is in our high-performance, natural ingredients.
