Being a beauty blogger I'm constantly getting tons of products to test out and while it's great to be able to try so many different things, I have sensitive skin so I'm really conscious about what I put on my body. One routine I try to keep constant is my body skincare routine, but honestly most of the time I'm so worried about the skin on my face that I often neglect my body.
Depending on the time of year and how dry my skin is I like alternate different products, but I always start my nightly routine with dry brushing. Not familiar with dry brushing? The name says it all, it's brushing your (dry) body with a natural bristle brush (I use this one
), to increase circulation, open up pores, aid in digestion, strengthen the immune system and eliminate toxins (it's even known to reduce cellulite). If you're interested in learning more about how to properly dry brush your skin, check out this video
After dry brushing it's important to get right in the shower to wash off all of the exfoliated, dead skin. Once I'm out I towel dry off and apply my favorite moisturizer. In the winter I tend to use a thicker lotion that can help combat my extremely dry skin, but in the summer I opt for something lighter. Vaseline
's new Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer is perfect because it absorbs immediately and leaves my skin super soft without being greasy. I love the spray because honestly dry brushing takes a little bit of time and once I'm out of the shower the only thing I can think about is throwing on my pjs and heading to sleep. Thankfully Vaseline
's continuous spray is fool proof and ensures even all-over coverage in just a few minutes. I just spray it down each leg and arm and across my stomach and rub it in and I'm done. This soothing aloe formula is perfect for sun-kissed summer skin because not only will it keep it super hydrated (the key to making your sun-kissed tan last longer), but the pure aloe will also soothe your skin if you got too much sun.
Since following this dry brushing/moisturizing routine I've noticed a huge change in my skin, especially on the back of my thighs. My skin is much smoother and all over healthier looking, which makes me much more confident in the summer when it comes to wearing shorts, dresses and bathing suits!
