As women, taking care of our bodies is extremely important. Through dealing with menstrual cramps, hormonal changes, excessive exercise, and lack of sleep (to name a few), sometimes our bodies deserve a break. Here are some of the best products that will not only treat your body with care, but will also indulge your senses.
Body butters are some of the most amazing products on the market. Their scents alone can have you feeling relaxed in an instant. Regardless of if you prefer body butters that smell like roasted cinnamon, tropical fruit, or warm vanilla, body butters are one of those products that every woman MUST have. Because body butters contain coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and other oils, it is more rejuvenating and more moisturizing than other lotions. We recommend Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter, Sol De Janeiro Açaí Body Power, or Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Smoothing Body Butter.
There is no better or simpler way to wash away a day’s worth of grime and dry skin from your body than using body wash. There are many different varieties on the market but some work better for different reasons. Lush Cosmetics Plum Rain Shower Gel will make your skin feel silky, radiant, and nourished. Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash will do wonders to remove dirt from your skin, leaving it smooth and glowing.
Another essential body product is sunscreen. And while sunscreen doesn’t necessarily have the same luxurious appeal as other body products, it is even more important, especially for sun lovers. Wearing sunscreen will not only prevent you from having to deal with sunburns and peeling skin, but it will also prevent wrinkles and brown spot development. Sunscreen brands such as Coppertone and Neutrogena are both amazing brands that offer different types of sunscreens to fit everyone’s individual needs. We also recommend Dermalogica Oil-Free Matte SPF 30 if you are acne prone or Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen if you are looking for chemical free sunscreen.
Along with being used for relaxing aromatherapy, essential oils are amazing products that can be applied directly to the skin in order to alleviate pain or receive other benefits. Different essential oils come with different healing properties. For example, ginger essential oil is typically used to ease arthritis pain. Lavender, Chamomile, and orange essential oils are shown to reduce anxiety and stress. So, if you are having excessive stress, pain, or other symptoms, consider using some of the other hundreds of essential oils in order to alleviate whatever ails you.
For those who love looking sunkissed and tan, without using the expensive and harmful tanning beds, self tanning lotion can be a game changer. There are many brands on the market but if you want a natural looking tan that doesn’t tint your skin orange, consider trying Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer, St. Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan, or James Read H2O Tan Mist. You will be able to develop a beautiful, natural tan overnight without the use of a tanning bed or a single day at the beach.
