While good old-fashioned soap and water will always get the job done, we know that not all skincare habits are equally beneficial. So, polish your daily routine and you will not only smell fantastic, but your skin will thrive.
Show some loofah love
We all love the rich lather we get from our favourite soap, but did you know that sharing your loofah, sponge or washcloth is not hygienic. These items can harbour bacteria, mould, yeast, and a multitude of other pretty gross things. So, don’t share your loofah with others.
Beauty soap is not just for your face
Sure, your face is front and centre, but the rest of your body is just as important. Make sure you wash your body daily with warm water and a good beauty bar soap. For the best protection and skincare results, keep seperate products for your face and your body.
To lock in the fine fragrance[http://www.houseoflux.co.za/skin-treats/perfume-collection] and deep moisture from your bath, make sure you apply moisturiser immediately after. This will seal in the important moisturise. Pay special attention to your neck, hands, feet and face and enjoy the kind of soft smooth skin you will feel happy in.
When you exfoliate, you get rid of dead skin cells that can clog up pores and make the skin appear dull. However, when you over-exfoliate, you begin to remove healthy cells from the surface of your skin. This can leave your skin vulnerable without its natural barrier. The trick is to exfoliate longer, rather than harder as you cleanse.
These skincare truths will help you to get the best out of your daily regime - and your body will thank you!
