Think Beyond the Face: Some Tips for Body Care

Everything you're doing for your face, from your masks and serums to exfoliants and sculpting—take it down to the body. A regimented body routine using high-performance ingredients can help target specific concerns like dull skin, acne, keratosis pilaris, or the appearance of cellulite to name a few. It might appear as if the body requires less maintenance than the face due to the face's constant exposure, but it still encounters some of the same common conditions. Our Tuel pros have curated a list of body beauty and health gems to follow in your daily routine; get your skin ready for the upcoming change of seasons to keep it fresh, even when the elements don’t want you to.


Exfoliation of the skin is a fundamental aspect of skincare. Every minute of every day, your body sheds dead skin cells at an astonishing rate. Without proper removal, they settle (or stick) on your skin making it seem dull and drab. It’s hard to achieve beautiful skin if you don't exfoliate, no matter how much you moisturize. Choose an exfoliating cleanser paired with pumice cloves for the ultimate buff and shine. To replenish moisture back into the skin, apply a hydrating body serum with antioxidants to shield yourself from the elements while preserving firmness.


Various conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation and eczema can affect our bodies as well. Keratosis pilaris, often described as "strawberry skin," is a common skin condition characterized by small, rough bumps usually on the upper arms, thighs and buttocks. In order to target these conditions, our Tuel pros suggest a few remedies that also work for the face. Focus on treatments that zero in on hydration and gentle exfoliation. For an extra boost, apply a spot treatment paired with a detoxifying clay mask on the affected areas. After rinsing, apply a calming moisture cream to soothe your skin. Once or twice a week will make a huge difference to your skin and give you a little chill-out time while the treatment works its magic. 


After you’ve shed all the dead skin cells away, the best way to keep your skin fresh, smooth and replenished is an ultra-rich body lotion. Moisturizer doesn't just add water back into your skin, but also traps in the water you already have to plump it up and protect it. Our go-to lotion has a robust formula made from 15 cold pressed plant extracts, natural emollients, vitamins and pure essential oils to feed the skin. For best results, make sure to use over clean, damp skin after a bath or shower. 


Cellulite is a harmless and natural part of life for many folks. The dimpled appearance, caused by fat pushing against connective tissue in the skin—happens to a lot of us and can be caused by anything from weight gain, to genetics, and aging. The truth is there is no quick fix for cellulite, but there are topical solutions that can help minimize its appearance. We recommend our cellulite minimizing cream to help detoxify and accelerate the burning of fatty tissue. Say goodbye to lumps and bumps!


The key to any successful routine is consistency, and your skincare is no exception. Take your body care products to-go to ensure your skin gets as much out of your travel plans as you do.
