Multi Task: Moisturizing Your Hands, Feet, Neck and Eye Area
The skin on your hands and feet is thicker than skin on the rest of your body, so both areas need plenty of moisture in order to penetrate and hydrate the multiple layers of skin. The same holds true for skin on your face but for a different reason: the skin on your neck and under eye area is delicate because it is extremely thin, when compared to the rest of your body. What they also have in common is that these areas contain very few oil producing glands, which is why they need extra moisture, every day and night, to address their highly specific requirements.
You don't need to buy a separate skin treatment for these areas.
Your eye cream or serum will do an excellent job to nourish and protect both areas. After cleansing, toning and applying sunscreen and/or antioxidant to your face, neck and decolletage, gently apply your eye treatment to the skin just underneath the eye and to the upper lid, using your pinky or ring finger. Next, take a little bit more, dot it on your neck and decolletage and rub it in, gently. Eye creams and serums are formulated thicker than treatments intended for use on the face, so a small amount goes a long way. The decolletage is not necessarily thin, but it will benefit from a little extra attention via a small amount of eye cream/serum. This skin helps support the breasts so to maintain plumpness and elasticity, be sure to keep your decolletage well hydrated: Eye cream is the PERFECT tool for the job!
Multi Task: Toners and Masques for your Face, Bikini Area and Body
Another double duty product is facial toner: after cleansing, it restores the skin's proper pH balance and also removes any residual cleanser, chlorine and/or minerals often found in tap water. When used on the bikini area, it will keep the hair follicles "open" and discourage the formation of ingrown hairs. To prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps, use the other side of your cotton pad (after you've toned your face) and pass it over your bikini area. If you have occasional body acne, you can "spot treat" it with toner and the same clay based masque that you use on your face. Moisten a clean cotton pad with a small amount of toner and wipe it over the affected area. Allow it to air dry for a minute or two and then apply a small amount of your clay masque with a cotton swab. Allow the masque to dry completely and then use a clean, damp wash cloth to remove it. To ward off future breakouts, be sure to rinse conditioner from your hair BEFORE lathering up: Your breakouts could very well be a result of left over hair conditioner lingering on your skin's surface.
Speaking of hair conditioner, it can serve double duty as a light protective coating before heat styling or on areas of the hair that tend to "fly away": Just be sure not to use too much, as this will weigh hair down and cause it to look greasy. If you are going to use your conditioner in this manner, be certain that it does not contain any harsh preservatives. Heavy duty chemical preservatives in many conditioners are intended to be left on the hair for only a short amount of time and then rinsed out. If you are going to use your conditioner as a leave-in, these chemical preservatives can cause damage. Your best bet is to use a conditioner with plant derived ingredients and minimal, naturally sourced and a gentle preservative system.
One final healthy skin tip
Don't use the same towel you use on your body to dry your face! Instead, pat your face dry with a wash cloth, ideally a fresh one every day. Your towel may have traces of hair conditioner, shower gel, etc on it and that could easily lead to clogged pores on your face. After you've dried your face with your washcloth, use it to wipe down all the wet surfaces in the bathroom and then toss it in the hamper. A post shower, daily wipe down will greatly reduce the buildup of soap scum and mildew on bathroom surfaces.
