When it comes to skin care, many people dedicate a lot of time and attention to their face. But did you ever stop to think about the needs of the rest of the skin on your body?
Did you ever think that maybe it’s time to show the rest of your body a little love? Your skin is your body’s largest organ, with more than 3 million skin cells on every square centimeter. That’s a lot of skin cells!
“Yet many people do not know how to properly care for their body’s skin or realize how prominently it can show signs of premature aging,” Amway North America Beauty Manager Marisa Grossnickle said.
“We focus so much time and attention on our face, when our entire body should benefit from the same level of care.”
It’s time to consider a head-to-toe body care routine, Marisa said, and the Artistry™ line has a new collection that allows you to personalize your routine for your specific skin type. Plus, she said, “It’s a wonderful way to indulge the senses while blending elements of beauty, nature and science together harmoniously.”
The Artistry Signature Select™ Body Collection is formulated to address different skin concerns all over the body. It features a purifying cleanser, polishing scrub, hydrating gel, brightening cream and firming lotion. These five high-performance body products are infused with phytonutrients to support body wellness for skin that looks younger and healthier.
Ready to start a fresh body care routine or enhance your current one? Consider these smart steps, simple tips and insider tricks:
1. Cleanse to eliminate impurities
Throughout the day your skin encounters a variety of contaminants, including microscopic dirt particles, dust and air pollution, even if you never leave the house. These particles can sit on your skin, dulling the surface and clogging pores. It’s essential to cleanse regularly to support healthier looking skin.
Strive to cleanse skin daily using a product designed to reduce impurities and balance skin throughout your body. Artistry Signature Select™ Purifying Body Cleanser leaves a clean feel and a youthful appearance. The formula, infused with Nutrilite™-sourced citrus extract, helps strengthen skin and defend against dryness and other common skincare concerns.
INSIDER TIP: Cleanse at least once daily but more as needed, such as after a workout or because you simply feel the need to refresh.
2. Exfoliate twice a week
The skin is an amazing organ, naturally growing and renewing. You can encourage that skin cell turnover by adding exfoliation into your body care routine two times a week.
A gentle scrub removes dead skin cells and polishes the skin for increased radiance. Try Artistry Signature Select™ Polishing Body Scrub for a full-sensory experience that smells and feels luxurious. It polishes dull, dry skin for a smoother, energized, healthier look.
The secret? Tiny bamboo grains help reveal fresh, glowing, smooth skin. The formula is infused with Nutrilite™-sourced black currant extract and a soothing blend of açai, evening primrose and perilla essential oils to help maintain and enhance a soft, supple feeling on the entire body.
INSIDER TIP: Spend a little extra time exfoliating rough areas such as heels and elbows for an overall glow that you’ll instantly notice.
3. Hydrate in multiple ways
Keeping skin hydrated can be a challenge, especially during dry or chilly seasons. That’s why it’s important to hydrate skin in multiple ways.
First, drink plenty of water throughout the day, which helps hydrate from the inside out. Second, use a hydrating gel that delivers deep moisture to rejuvenate skin and support its healthy look.
Artistry Signature Select™ Hydrating Body Gel revitalizes dry skin with self-adjusting hydration that delivers moisture where and when skin needs it most. The super-lightweight hydro-gel formula is infused with Nutrilite™-sourced green tea and peach flower extracts, plus perilla and evening primrose oils, to help strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, protect against pollution and keep skin looking and feeling smoother and younger.
INSIDER TIP: Try gently blotting skin with a towel after bathing or showering and then applying gel on partially moist skin for an extra boost of hydration.
4. Add a brightening cream in the a.m.
Want to start your body care routine out the right way every day? Consider adding a step that incorporates a brightening cream to help skin look more even and radiant. This will help reveal a glow that will get noticed, whether it’s in person or on those video conferences.
Try Artistry Signature Select™ Brightening Body Cream with light diffusers and Nutrilite™-sourced acerola cherry and white chia seed extracts. The gentle refinishers help smooth your skin’s surface and support skin cell turnover for a more luminous and even-toned look.
INSIDER TIP: A brightening cream is ideal after a body scrub so that the nutrients can easily be absorbed by skin and utilized by the body for an all-day glow.
5. Tighten and tone for firmer skin
Beautiful skin is a goal at any age, so make sure to add products to your body care routine that are designed to nourish and firm your skin.
Artistry Signature Select™ Firming Body Lotion is an excellent choice, helping skin look firm while reducing the appearance of cellulite, especially in the areas where you need it most. The Skin Firming Complex provides an instant skin tightening feel, while Nutrilite™-sourced pomegranate extract helps neutralize damage from pollution and other sources.
INSIDER TIP: Massage firming products into damp or dry skin in a circular motion twice a day — ideally morning and evening — for best results.
