The Best Body Care Routine For Soft Skin

A multi-step skincare routine is an absolute necessity to make sure your complexion is getting everything it needs to stay healthy and youthful-looking. No one product will be able to address all of your skin’s varied needs on its own, after all. Then why is it that so many men and women ignore this advice when it comes to the skin below the neck? You can’t expect your body to say supple, soft, and hydrated if you’re not giving it the proper care.

Finding the best body-care routine for you is just as important as your everyday skincare regimen. In order to do that, you first need to know exactly what it needs. The skin on your body is different from your face, neck, and chest in that it is thicker, has more sweat glands, and is generally less oily. That means your main issues are most likely going to be around dryness and dead-skin build-up.

A dedicated body-care routine of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing will do wonderful things for the appearance of your skin, helping to keep it hydrated, resilient, and vibrant. Keep reading to learn how to craft your own pampering ritual with some of our favorite Kiehl’s body products.


When you wash your face, you are primarily removing things like dirt, oil, and makeup. But, thanks to all those sweat glands, your body has the added problem of sweat and odor. Adding more complications is the fact that every time you shower off that sweat and dirt, you are also washing away the natural oil your skin needs to stay hydrated. With those oils gone, your skin barrier may be weaker, making your skin more likely to be dry and susceptible to damage and irritation.

In addition to keeping your showers short (as in, no longer than 10 minutes), be sure to reach for a body wash that has moisturizing ingredients to help address moisture loss. Our Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser It’s gentle, refreshing, and comes in four naturally beautiful scents.


Just like your face, dead skin can also build up on your body. This can lead to skin appearing dull, flakiness and sometimes even body acne. Help keep those issues at bay with an exfoliating body scrub like the Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish. It’s a creamy scrub made of Shea and Jojoba Butters, skin-sloughing Luffa Fruit, and nourishing Soy Milk Protein and Honey. Used twice weekly, it can help keep skin smooth and silky.


You wouldn’t skip your face moisturizer, so why wouldn’t you apply body lotion every day? Your body needs that added hydration to keep optimal moisture levels. Our iconic, award-winning Creme de Corps is a body lotion that also helps to improve skin texture. The non-greasy formula has antioxidant Beta-Carotene, plus skin-softening Cocoa Butter and Squalane to help replenish your natural moisture barrier.

Your body deserves the same care and attention as your face, so treat it right with a dedicated system to give it the same vitality and strength.
