Treat your body like a temple, they say. We can’t argue with this one. Nurturing your body with the utmost care—from the inside out—is one of the most important aspects of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. From the food and supplements you put into your system to the personal care products you slather onto your skin, the items you stock in your fridge and beauty cabinet are essentially a reflection of your self-care habits.
Taking the time to thoughtfully select the products you use means you prioritize yourself, which we’re so here for. Dr. Jason Diamond puts it perfectly when discussing the benefits of adding collagen into your beauty regimen: “Collagen is to aging as oxygen is to breathing—deplete it, and you’ll age rapidly. Maintain it, and you’ll age normally. Boost it, and you’ll age gracefully.”
Same goes for boosting your body care routine—you maintain care by showering regularly, but you boost it with the products you choose to keep in your bathroom. A clean body wash is a no-brainer, but adding something like a scrub to your shower routine takes body care one step further and will leave your skin exfoliated and soft as can be. Below, we’re breaking down the in-shower and post-shower clean essentials to boost your body care routine.
