CLEANSE: Use a moisturizing body cleanser

Using a moisturizing body cleanser can make a huge difference in your skin. The right ingredients can trap moisture in your skin and leave you feeling soft and smooth almost instantly upon washing off. If you use a body cleanser (such as natural soap) make sure you follow up with a good creamy body wash as natural soap has the tendency to strip you of your natural oils. It is best to use a body cleanser that is oil-infused with the right oils and butters Try a creamy texture body cleanser!
