Who doesn’t love some (okay, A LOT of) foam and bubbles?! 😉

We’ve shared a bit of our skincare favorites in the past, but we mostly concentrated on our favorites for your face…cleansers, moisturizers, etc… So we thought it could be fun to pull back that shower curtain and share some our favorite full body skin-care tips

EXFOLIATE
We’ve recently discovered the benefits of dry body brushing and yes, it is exactly what it sounds like…you brush your body with a dry brush before showering. It’s a great way to increase energy and blood flow, while also removing toxins and dead skin cells.  It takes just a few minutes before jumping in the shower.  Follow up with a moisturizing body wash and natural lotion afterwards.

CLEANSE + MOISTURIZE
Lately, our go-to has been method’s cucumber mint scent body wash, but you can’t really go wrong with any of them.  The fragrances are all so fresh and infused with aloe and vitamin E, which really helps if you’re a desert dweller like we are.  Since moving out west, our skin (and hair) has gone through many changes.  We were used to the humidity of the east coast, which wasn’t so fun with frizzy hair days but definitely made a difference in our skins’ texture and moisture.  We’ve learned body washes and lotions with extra vitamins, has been the key to keeping our skin moisturized and soft.  No dry patches here!

HYDRATE
This may sound like a given, but drinking a lot of water (about 2 liters per day) is one of the best  things we can do for our skin. It’s something we all know and hear constantly, but can be hard to do throughout our busy days.  We like to start off our mornings with a cup of hot water with fresh lemon juice.  It helps kick start the digestion system for the day and is really refreshing.  We always keep a water bottle with us on while we’re on the go, especially during the summer months, when the desert heat is at an all time high.

How do you guys keep your skin looking and feeling beautiful?
