Autumn is upon us, and if you haven’t yet, now is a great time to take stock of your skin care needs. Beyond just what you put on your face, the health of your skin below your neck can also be optimized based on skin type. What you use on your body determines how well your skin responds as we head into the colder months.
Just like your face, you might not ever get super dry below the neck. There are plenty of people who can get away with using a really moisturizer. Beyond a little moisture on the elbows and knees, there might not much need for more.
For those people, Organic Essential Body Scrub is ideal. It exfoliates skin and deposits essential moisture below the dermis with the help of warm steam. Because it’s meant to be used in the shower, it eliminates any need for moisturizing afterwards. Super dry skins can also use the scrub as an ‘additional’ layer of moisture and follow up later with one outside of the bath or shower.
If you’re looking for a light formula that packs a powerful punch, look no further than Organic Essential Body Lotion. Unlike most lotions which use water and even alcohol to create the finished product, Habibi’s version is packed with soothing aloe for an extra boost of hydration and nourishment.
If you want something even heavier, Organic Essential Hair & Body Oil can be used on your hair and body. The thickness of the oil is due to a healthy dose of shea butter, and a healing blend of nourishing carrier and essential oils. Because this is an oil, it will leave a sheen on the skin. A little goes a long way. If you’re concerned about possible staining on clothing, press the oil into damp skin right after a bath or shower, and then gently pat dry to seal in the moisture.
The driest skins need a moisturizer that meet the challenge of being strong enough to combat chapped skin, but smooth enough to absorb and keep skin hydrated until you wash it off. Habibi answered the call with Organic Essential Body Balm. We upped the ante with organic raw shea butter and a decadent combination of apple honey, rosewater and essential oils.
This body balm hands down our bestselling moisturizer, and with good reason. The combination is not just designed to moisurize, it also helps to heal and nourish skin over time. the more you use it, the better your skin will look and feel. We find that Body Balm is best used at night, on clean skin. The next morning, your skin will feel like absolute silk. Just like the oil, a little goes a very long way.
The best way to keep dry skin at bay is stay hydrated as often as possible. Here’s to your best skin health, in the coming seasons and beyond.
