You always put your best face forward, but your skin care routine should extend from head to toe. From Cleopatra and her milk baths to the historic hot springs and luxurious spas of Hungary, body treatments have been used since ancient times to renew and replenish the body’s largest organ: your skin. Follow these steps to elevate your body ritual with a luxurious organic body care routine.
Your skin is in a constant state of regeneration: Old skin cells shed and new cells emerge. But, sometimes your skin needs help shedding its layers. Exfoliation is the best way to slough off dead skin cells and reveal the healthy cells underneath. Gently massaging an exfoliant into the skin also makes skin look revitalized, improves its texture and boosts its natural vibrancy.
Polish your skin to perfection with the new Stone Crop Revitalizing Body Scrub. This unique resurfacing exfoliant lathers into a creamy foam and combines sugar and salt to hydrate and invigorate the skin's appearance. Infused with comforting stone crop and antioxidant-rich lemon peel, it smooths and brightens skin for a fresh-looking finish. Inhale deeply to experience the full benefits of this subtly fragrant body scrub.
With dead cells buffed away, your skin can better absorb the moisturizing properties of the lotions and oils that follow. While your skin is still slightly damp, apply deeply hydrating body oil to replenish dry skin and lock in moisture. This step also helps fortify your skin’s natural lipid barrier which protects it from drying environmental irritants.
Soothe and smooth dryness with our light-weight Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Body Lotion. This luxurious lotion contains our unique Botanical Hyaluronic Acid Complex that infuses the skin with immediate head-to-toe hydration and helps to lock in moisture. It is also formulated with rhubarb, an ingredient which contains polyphenols to preserve youthful-looking skin.
You may also enjoy the hydrating Stone Crop Body Oil which combines arnica, stone crop, rosehip oil and avocado oil to moisturize dry skin. Warm it in your hands and apply with a gentle massage-like effect for an indulgent spa experience at home. Perfectly lightweight, it leaves a soft, satin finish.
If cellulite is a concern, you aren’t alone. According to Scientific American, ninety percent of women have cellulite, which typically appears as dimpled skin around the buttocks and thighs. While cellulite can’t be made to disappear, you can reduce its appearance with topical skin care.
Reduce the appearance of cellulite with our Stone Crop Contouring Body Cream. This naturally potent cream contains active ingredients that smooth and firm the skin. Stone crop, shea butter and jojoba oil add additional moisture, while coffee and microalgae extracts improve the look of cellulite. Use it as an all-over moisturizer or as a targeted treatment to tighten and tone where your body needs it most.
