In our quest for finding the perfect skincare routine for our facial skin, we usually end up neglecting the skin on the rest of our body. Sure, we may treat our hands to hand creams occasionally and take our moisturisers down the neck sometimes, but other than that, we don’t really give it the TLC it deserves.
Building the right body care routine can be extremely nourishing and help you get rid of skincare troubles like dryness, roughness, eczema and even muscle tension. And the first step towards building the perfect body care routine involves figuring out the right ingredients that work for your skin.
Here are three nourishing ingredients you should incorporate into your body care routine ASAP!
This one may be unheard of if you aren’t big on ayurvedic skincare, but vetiver is a body care hero. Apart from its earthy, woody fragrance, the ingredient has a ton of skin-regenerating, anti-inflammatory, healing, and even relaxant properties that make it essential in any body care routine. Added bonus? It also exfoliates the dead skin cells from your body, thus detoxing and revitalising your skin with every shower.
02. Coconut water
Yes, it tastes delicious, but did you know coconut water is fantastic for your skin as well? Touted as an anti-ageing agent, coconut water is packed with age-reversing antioxidants, which neutralise free radicals on your face while moisturising the skin and making it more supple, bright, and glowing.
03. Murumuru butter
You've heard of cocoa butter and shea butter — now get ready for an ingredient that's going to take its place, murumuru butter. A natural butter that contains fantastic emollient properties that don’t clog the pores, this ingredient moisturises the skin and how. Oh, and did we mention that it's amazing for sensitive skin, too, since it can restore the skin barrier without causing irritation? Truly a godsend.
