With warmer temperatures on the horizon, it’s time to bare those arms and legs with summertime fashion. Here are some body skin care tips to help keep skin looking healthy and gorgeous all summer long.
Dry Skin Treatment
Following the wintertime, skin can be extremely dry and this includes areas such as the arms, shoulders and legs.
Body exfoliation will give skin the jumpstart it needs.
The Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar is considered the first body microdermabrasion at home program.
“This soap bar lathers quickly while it gently removes dead skin cells which will help leave your skin toned and luminous,” said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven based in San Diego. “It also works hard to treat ingrown hairs, cellulite and stretch marks.”
Another way to exfoliate while showering or bathing is with Le Edge. Its stainless steel blade is an all natural exfoliating and gentle tool. It removes dead skin, dirt, debris and other impurities.
Another great body treatment is a sugar scrub exfoliator.
“One of our favorites is the Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Rub which has coconut oils and flower extracts in its ingredients to help soften and nourish the skin,” she said. “It gently exfoliates the skin with natural alpha-hydroxys which will leave your skin hydrated and rejuvenated.”
Treating Dry Feet
Another area needing pre-summer TLC is the feet. During the colder months, many don’t get pedicures since it is boot wearing season. This can lead to very dry feet.
“Using the dry skin tips as mentioned before such as the Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar, Le Edge, and Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Rub are great treatments,” said the spokesperson. “If your feet need a bit more attention, at night, you can soak them in Epsom salts and warm water for about 10 minutes; afterward, you can use our favorite products for a deeper exfoliation.”
Hydrating The Skin
After dead skin cells are buffed away hydrating the skin is the next important step. In this category, body butters and body lotions are the perfect fit.
Some popular choices include:
“While you are hydrating your body, don’t forget to do your hands, too,” she said.
Other Quick Tips
Here are some other at-a-glance summer skin care tips:

• Don’t forget a broad spectrum sunscreen to prevent future skin damage
• Stay hydrated with water intake
• Don’t forget natural skin care supplements and vitamins rich with vitamins D, A, C and K.
Following these simple steps will lead to gorgeous and radiant summer skin.
