Body Care Tips: Paying Attention to the Skin Below Your Chin
Most of us have a daily skin care regimen that helps our face to look healthy, wrinkle-free and revitalised – but do you pay the same amount of attention to the rest of your body? We tend to concentrate more on our face, neck and chest, but that’s only a small portion of our body, what about the other 75%? Some people think a shower is good enough for the rest of our skin, but this isn’t the case.
If you speak to anyone who works for a leading cream manufacturer (มาร์ค หน้า ใส in Thai) or a reputable dermatologist, they’ll tell you that showering too often is bad for you.

The outer layer of your skin is constantly changing, dead cells need to be removed to help new cells emerge. Soaking your body for 10 or 15 minutes, once a week is highly beneficial to your skin.
Every time you finish in the shower or bath, make sure to latter your entire body with lotion. There is a wide variety of body lotions on the market, so you should easily find a product that suits your skin type. Using body lotion has several great benefits, some of which include:
- Hydrating your skin to ensure it doesn’t go dry or feel irritated.
- Body lotion can make your skin feel softer and less bumpy.
- Getting rid of dry skin and itchiness.
- Helps to give your body an amazing fragrance once applied.
- It removes dull and dead skin and give your body a fresh glow which lasts throughout the day.
- Makes your skin softer to touch.
Your skin is an important part of your body and it must be kept well-maintained if you are to keep that healthy glow throughout your life. We shouldn’t just focus on the main areas like the face, neck and chest, we need to give the rest of our body the same amount of attention. Find a good product today and start applying it regularly to see the benefits.
