Unveiling 6 tips on proper body care from the neck down.
A good skincare routine is more than just taking care of your face – it includes your whole body.
We tend to go OTT when it comes to our face. We have thorough, expensive routines for that #iwokeuplikethis look. Cleansing, exfoliating, toning, moisturising, and masking. Throw in those serums, spot treatments and facials. But when it comes to our body, what do we do? We rush through our baths with basic body soaps that get the job done.
When we’re busy obsessing over a pimple, it’s hard to think about those dry elbows, am I right? Your skin is the largest organ, and you need to do more to take care of it. As one of the largest detoxification organs and first line of defence against infection and diseases, proper care is vital.
Skin on any part of your body can become dry and unhealthy. For truly healthy skin, it’s important to practice good skincare everywhere. Proper treatment revitalises skin and slows the aging process, keeping skin healthier for longer. Here are some tips from us to get you started!
- Cleanse properly
We’re fussy with what we put on our face but less so about what we use on our bodies. Start paying (more) attention to what you put on your body and ensure your cleansing routine isn’t too basic. Opt for gentle yet effective cleansers that will remove dirt, oil, impurities and the day’s build up for a good, thorough cleanse.
- Exfoliate regularly
Exfoliation isn’t just for the face. At least once a week, take time out for a scrub session to get rid of dead skin cells. Exfoliating dead skin cells speeds up the process of cell renewal, resulting in youthful skin.

- Shower right
A shower is better than a bath, which dehydrates the skin. Try not to spend too much time in the shower though, as long showers can also rid the skin of moisture. When rinsing, remember to use lukewarm instead of hot water, which strips the skin of its natural oils and causes skin sensitivities.
- Moisturise religiously
Make moisturising a habit. You moisturise your face liberally, but how about your body? It’s a body care step most of us neglect. Incorporate moisturising as part of your post shower routine so it becomes a daily habit. Staying on top of your moisturising game ensures your skin remains protected and hydrated.
- Don’t neglect your hands
Your hands are constantly exposed to the elements, but when was the last time you put SPF on them? Hands are a dead giveaway of your age so ensure you religiously put SPF on the back of your hands and keep them adequately moisturised.
DrSpa® Photodynamic for hands eliminates signs of aging and negligence for silky, smooth and fair hands that look younger than their years.
- Protect your neck
The skin on your neck is extremely delicate because it has fewer oil glands, making it more prone to dryness, redness and itching. It’s also one of the first places that show signs of aging because the skin there is thin. As a preventive measure, use the same products you use on your face for your neck.
Shower your neck with some overdue attention. DrSpa® Neck Firm firms and reduces fine lines while intensely hydrating to keep your neck youthful and rejuvenated.
Like every part of your body, skin responds well to TLC. Follow the tips above and you’ll be able to keep your skin glowing so you can match your face.
