We all have three homes: earth, our minds, and our bodies, and when we focus so much on the world around us, it might feel like caring for our bodies is falling to the wayside. When we take care of our bodies, our minds benefit too, and with Hanalei products made for our skin with natural Hawaiian botanicals and cruelty-free ingredients, the earth will be smiling as well. Our bodies sometimes need a little extra TLC, and with these eight body care tips, you’re about to love caring for your body.
Detoxify Your Skin
One of the best ways to benefit your skin is to get rid of the bad stuff before adding beneficial ingredients. For the face, one of our favorite ways to detox your skin is to exfoliate and cleanse with our Charcoal Powder Face Cleanser. Made with activated charcoal, this is a great way to detox your skin.
Routinely Exfoliate Your Body
Body care means caring for your whole body. And one of the best ways to care for your body is to exfoliate so that you can get rid of any dry or dead skin. Our Sugar Body Scrub is ideal for exfoliating your whole body using Hawaiian Cane Sugar, so that you can add any moisturizer after and get all of the best benefits. If your face needs some exfoliating, you can use either of our Powder Face Cleansers combined with our Sugar Lip Scrub for some amazing facial exfoliation.
Moisturize with a Good Body Lotion
Your skin is going to love our favorite moisturizer. Kukui Body Lotion is made with Kukui Nut Oil, which is a natural moisturizer that was used in ancient Hawaiian Medicine. This is a beautifully nourishing moisturizer that we love to use on dry skin that needs a little extra love.
Get In a Good Workout Routine You Enjoy
One of the best ways to show love to your body is to integrate everyday movement. Whether you take up hiking, yoga, running, or kickboxing, conscious movement is going to help your body feel better, and help you feel more confident in your body, because you’ve found something you absolutely love to do!
Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking lots of water is a great way to benefit your skin and the rest of your body. Drinking water can keep your skin feeling hydrated, especially in dry weather when our natural moisture evaporates quicker. It’s also a great way to prevent headaches, stay energized, and feel your best.
Eat Well but Don’t Deprive Yourself
It’s incredibly important for your body that you eat good food and food that’s good for you. This means plenty of fruits and veggies and paying attention to what your body needs and when. But this doesn’t mean to only eat healthy foods. It’s absolutely okay to indulge in some chocolate or ice cream, but it’s important to not make that a habit and to listen to what your body needs and wants. It’s all about balance.
Pamper Yourself with Spa Days
If you’ve been working hard to live healthier, allow yourself to let go every once in a while and take a day for yourself. Pamper yourself with a spa day, whether you relax DIY style, or go to a professional. Exfoliate your skin, moisturize, and do a face mask. At the end of the day, your body and mind will thank you.
Reward Yourself When You Reach Your Goals
If you’re working toward doing something to specifically help your body look and feel better, try to think of a good reward for yourself when you reach that goal. This will help keep you accountable, and you’ll feel even more accomplished when you end up meeting that goal.
Taking care of your body is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Make sure that you’re checking in with yourself, caring for your skin, and drinking plenty of water, and your body is sure to love you for it.
