Body wash - Body wash is necessary when it comes to showering. Body wash works great because you can quickly lather it on your skin, and it usually has a delicious smell to it. The best body washes produce a thick lather.
Start your shower off the right way by using a body wash that works with your skin type. Body washes can be made for different skin types, but body washes that contain oatmeal and aloe vera are a great combination for most skin types. They work with sensitive skin types, including children skin.
Bar soap - If you don't prefer body soap to body wash, that is another option for you. Find soap that has natural ingredients in it. Good options are soap that has coconut, palm and Castor oil. Cocoa butter also does great with hydrating skin.
Soapmaking gives you the chance to find ingredients that you want in your soap. Soapmaking allows you to choose what you want in it. Soapmaking lets you choose the color, scents, and ingredients in it. Heck, it even allows you to put your soap on a string if you want to.
Body Scrub - Body scrub works great to exfoliate skin. You need to exfoliate your skin regularly if you want it to be healthy. Use it in the shower and it will quickly wash off, keeping your skin looking fresh.
When you find a body scrub you want to be sure that it is grainy but not too harsh on your skin. You don't want it to be rubbed raw, you just want it to take off the layer of dead skin. If you want a good scent to it, find one that has lemon and sage.
Moisturizer - Moisturizers are very important for skin care as well. Once you are out of the shower and dried off apply some lotion and moisturizer to your skin. Find a mix that is natural and doesn't contain any harsh chemicals. Good mixes are jojoba, sesame, and chamomile.
