Your New By BEAUTY BAY Body Care Routine

If we could take a guess, we’d say you’ve probably got your skincare routine down to a T, but that your body care routine could do with some TLC? Us too, but not for long.

Just like your face, your body needs a step-by-step skincare routine to maintain hydration, protect your skin barrier, and stay supple. The “everything shower” routine was the hype of 2023, but we’re claiming the body care routine as the self-care must-have for 2024. And with our new range of By BEAUTY BAY Body Care products, it’s never been simpler.

Why should you have a body care routine?

Keeping your skin and body in the best shape goes beyond a quick swipe of shower gel and a towel dry. A consistent body skin care routine packed with products and ingredients designed to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturise skin is essential. Our skin comes up against it every day, whether its pollutants, sweating, ageing, or environmental stressors, so a body care routine will keep it purified, smooth, soothed, hydrated, nourished, and glowing.

What does the best body care routine look like?

From deeply cleansing, to layering with hydrating body care products, there are some essential products and ingredients you need to achieve the best body care routine.

Step 1: Cleanse your body with salicylic acid

Like the skin on your face, your body needs a good cleanse to remove impurities and unclog pores. So, a body cleanser rather than a regular body wash is the first step of the best body care routine.

Our By BEAUTY BAY Body Cleansing Balm is perfect for this first step, as it’s a deep and purifying body cleanser that features salicylic acid and chamomile. It has a luxurious balm-to-oil formula and melts onto skin when massaged in, just like our best-selling By BEAUTY BAY Chamomile + Oat Lipid Cleansing Balm. It gently removes product build up and stubborn impurities like SPF, helping unclog pores and clear skin from top to toe. There’s also a subtle scent of uplifting eucalyptus and peppermint oil in there, too – real star and spa-quality.

Why use a salicylic acid body cleanser?

You’re probably already acquainted with salicylic acid for its skincare benefits, but did you know it can be a staple in your body care routine, too? As it has the ability to deeply penetrate through multiple layers of skin and oil, it essentially dissolves the ‘glue’ that holds skin cells together to break down dead skin cells that can clog pores. This is why it can offer more intense exfoliation than other skincare ingredients.

Our By BEAUTY BAY Body Cleansing Balm is powered by the holy grail exfoliating ingredient, which helps reduce the appearance of pores and breakouts on your body. It also smooths bumpy, rough areas to leave you with softer, more even skin. Our body balm is also infused with soothing chamomile as part of a complex, which helps to calm inflamed and stressed skin, too.

We recommend our body cleansing balm for all skin types and anybody looking for a body care upgrade, but it’ll work wonders in particular for anyone wanting to smooth out uneven texture. In a clinical trial of 20 people, a hefty 89% agreed they noticed less blemishes and breakouts after 4 weeks use.​ And 90% said their skin felt softer and smoother immediately after first use.​ So if you’re thinking of adding salicylic acid to your body skin care routine, expect real results with our body cleanser.

Step 2: Exfoliate your body with AHAs

Your complexion glows differently once you’ve exfoliated, and the same goes for your body. There are endless benefits of exfoliating your body, like brightening, smoothing, and refreshing your skin. Tick, tick, tick from our By BEAUTY BAY Body Exfoliating Buff.

But, how does exfoliating work and what does it do? It essentially buffs away any dead skin cells and dirt to reveal softer, younger-looking skin underneath. So your body’s left looking more radiant and smoother. Our buff is enriched with a match made duo of both chemical and physical exfoliants (10% AHAs and sea salt) that do just that and leave skin refined and brighter. There’s also a powerhouse blend of skin-loving glycerin, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil in there to refresh and nourish your body, too.

What do AHAs do for your body?

AHAs are known for smoothing and softening skin by offering gentle exfoliation – the main aim of any good body exfoliator. They’re chemical exfoliants, meaning they dissolve dead skin cells and help shed surface skin.

The blend of 10% AHAs in our By BEAUTY BAY Exfoliating Body Buff takes care of this by reducing the appearance of bumps and pores to give a more even, refined skin texture. There’s an addition of sea salt, too, which is a physical exfoliant. This helps remove any dryness and flakiness to leave skin smoother and more radiant.

Our buff’s suitable for any body and all skin types, but anyone with blemish-prone skin will see and feel real improvements. We carried out a clinical trial with 22 people and 86% agreed their skin felt less rough and bumpy immediately after first use.​ And 82% said their skin was glowing after 1 week’s use.​

Step 3: Use a body moisturiser with shea butter

Once you’ve cleansed and exfoliated your body, the final step is adding a shot of hydration with a rich body moisturiser. An important step for any body care routine, moisturising is even more important if you’ve shaved or exfoliated to deeply nourish and replenish skin.

The By BEAUTY BAY Body Smoothing Butter has a rich, ultra-velvety formula that intensely moisturises with hydration-hero, shea butter. It’s non-greasy, too, so you can layer and blend a healthy amount and hydrate dry skin without any unwanted shine or residue.

Why use a shea body butter?

Shea butter is an emollient that hydrates and softens skin, making it a staple for any body care routine. It contains lots of different fatty acids, which protects skin from damage and environmental pollutants

Included in our By BEAUTY BAY Body Smoothing Butter, it leaves those dry, rough areas nourished and smoother. It even helps lock in moisture – perfect for intensely hydrating any dry or dehydrated skin. Our butter’s also packed with ceramide NP, which gives your skin barrier the VIP treatment by replenishing and protecting.

We recommend our butter particularly for those with dry or dehydrated skin, but it’s suitable for all skin types. The proof is in the pudding, and in a clinical trial of 21 people, 95% said their skin felt moisturised and nourished immediately after first use of our butter. And​ 95% said their skin felt soft and supple immediately after first use.​
