Thanks to beauty gurus and enthusiasts everywhere, skincare (or rather, caring for our face) is no longer a mystery to the average Joe. Women use skincare products, makeup, and go to facials and skincare treatments often, but often neglect the rest of our skin. They too, are affected by our habits and activities – especially when one spends a lot of time outdoors or in dry work conditions.
And the best way to care for the skin on our arms, legs and the rest of our body? Replenishing lost moisture by slathering on some rich, gentle body moisturiser.
