We spoil our faces with all the masks, serums, oils and treatments we can get our hands on, but what about the other 90 percent of our bodies? Isn’t that skin important, too? Short Answer: Yes. And people are catching on: You may have noticed there’s been a shift in body care as of late, and it goes well beyond your silky body washes and sugary scrubs. Think exfoliants with AHAs, serums that reduce cellulite and treatments that target crepey skin.
We were curious about the rise in body care, so we reached out to board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Shari Sperling, who says, “I think people are now more conscious of their appearance and of the damaging effects of the sun. Skin care in general has been on the rise, and with that education comes the desire to improve the skin’s appearance everywhere (not just the face) by keeping it looking healthy and youthful.”
