Step-by-Step Skin Care Routine
For Your Body
Of course, we all know you need a skin care routine for your face. But your body needs just as much love to stay hydrated and glowing all year long — and our super-simple, incredibly versatile routine has you covered step by step, head to toe.
Step 1: Cleanse
It all starts with some suds...
Why Cleansing Matters
It gets rid of daily dirt and grime. It keeps your pores in shape. And it’s like a refreshing, five-minute fragrance vacation. A few of our favorite products are below (you really can’t go wrong), but whichever option you choose, here’s a pro-tip: be sure to wash and condition your hair before washing your body — it’s the best way to remove any residual hair products from your skin.
Exfoliating Body Scrubs
This is the first step to super-soft, smooth skin. Not only do body scrubs clear away dirt, grime and dry flakes, but they’re also a great way to prep for the rest of your routine. Just remember to exfoliate gently in a circle for about 30 seconds, once or twice a week. Shop Body Scrubs
Bubbly Shower Gel
This queen of cleansing is the base of all skin care routines. And its ingredients? Vitamin E. Shea butter. Aloe. Basically, the moisturizing superstars. Plus, it’s excellent for all skin types and comes in nearly every fragrance imaginable. Talk about a win-win. Shop Shower Gel
Moisturizing Body Wash
This won’t replace your daily body lotion or cream, but our moisturizing body wash will help hydrate your skin when it needs it: it’s clinically tested to moisturize after just one shower. And the shea and cocoa butter make the perfect, bye-dry-skin blend. Shop Moisturizing Body Wash
The Cutest Loofah
You may be wondering: do I even need a loofah? And we’d say: of course! These super-cute, super-effective shower sponges take your skin care routine beyond a perfect 10/10 by adding some gentle scrubbing action and major adorableness. Shop Accessories
Step 2: Moisturize
Now that you’ve cleansed, it’s time to smooth on the good stuff.
Why Moisturizing Matters
Because cleansing clears away so many natural oils along with all that dirt and grime, moisturizing is crucial to replenish hydration and lock it all in. But with so many formula options, from body creams to oils, it can be tough to choose just one. Below, a few of our favorites for every skin type (and season).
Super-Fluffy Body Cream
Our body creams are perfect for anyone who wants a little more moisture than the standard body lotion. We put nourishing shea and cocoa butters (and soothing aloe) in each bottle to keep skin soft all day, every day – but never greasy. Added bonus: the fragrances are everything. Shop Body Cream
Lightweight Body Lotion
So light, you won’t even notice it’s on your skin. (You will notice the fragrance, though.) This quick-absorbing, perfect-for-everyone formula blends vitamin E, coconut oil and shea butter into a lotion you’ll want to take everywhere. Shop Body Lotion
Nourishing Body Oil
Especially popular in our Aromatherapy collection, our body oils are just as pampering and luxurious as they sound. Layer on these nourishing wonders after long days at work, as a self-care treat or anytime you need a little extra boost. We recommend making a spa night out of it. Shop Body Oil
Smooth Body Butter
Like a treat for your body – without the calories. When you need 24 hours of intense moisture, body butter is your go-to. Your skin will love all the good-for-you ingredients (hey there, shea butter and coconut oil), and you’ll love the fragrance. Shop Body Butter
Step 3: Spritz
No skin care routine would be complete without it.
Why Spritzing Matters
Think of this step like the cherry on top of a sundae or the bow on a present. That last spritz of a fine fragrance mist or perfume ties your entire routine together — and adds one last splash of fragrance to carry through your day. The only difficult part is choosing a scent...but we have some ideas about that, too.
While we all have our daily favorites, there’s something nice about keeping a rotation of scents on your shelf — just so you’re covered for every single mood. Sugary gourmands are great for a treat, and clean scents feel so good for summer. We love exotic fragrances for date night, fresh florals for spring parties...you get the idea, anything you adore at first spritz is fair game. (And if you need some help deciding, we have a guide for that right here.)
Luxurious Eau de Parfum
Our most-loved fragrances. Display-worthy packaging. These are the goodies you’ll want to use before a special occasion or a night out. We recommend a few of our fan-favorites, like Gingham or Japanese Cherry Blossom. Shop Eau de Parfum
