Beyond Face: Why body care matters

Looking after the skin is a vital part of maintaining a radiant complexion. However, while the face is pampered daily it’s important to care for the body in just the same way.

A targeted skincare regime plays a vital part in maintaining the health and appearance of skin and using the correct cosmeceutical products both morning and night provides essential moisture as well as potent ingredients to combat concerns such as dryness, hyperpigmentation and redness.

However, whilst the majority of Ultraceuticals products are created for the delicate skin of your face, we also understand the importance of top to toe skincare products for your whole body developed with the latest scientific research to achieve real, visible results for smooth and supple skin.

Inner Health, Outer Body

When we talk about the health of the skin, we’re not simply talking about your facial complexion. The largest organ, with a large surface area exposed to the elements, your body’s surface needs to receive necessary hydration and potent ingredients on a regular basis — and that’s inside and out.

The health of our skin truly starts with a healthy, well-balanced diet. Fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, avocados, tomatoes and spinach are full of antioxidants, which lend a helping hand to the turnover rate of skin cells, revealing a luminous finish and we all understand the importance of water hydration.

To complement your diet then, it’s important to use the right skincare products for your skin type. Dry skin requires richer creams to lock in moisture, and may need more rounds of topical application throughout the day. And so moisturising the body should be a vital part of your skincare routine in the morning, before you head to bed, and especially after a shower. This is because soaps and body gels can strip natural oils from our skin, and must be replaced via body lotions as soon as possible.

If you have dry skin, use a calming soap-free shower gel, and pat your body with a towel rather than rubbing after showering to prevent further irritation.

Body at its Best

An investment in your skin means top to toe protection and nourishment, and our dual-action Ultra Retexturising Body Complex gently exfoliates while supplying vital moisture to the skin.



Your body deserves the very best

Suitable for all skin types, and formulated with AHA Lactic Acid, as well as anti-ageing Niacinamide, Salicin and Vitamin E, it visibly improves skin texture, tone and reduces hyperpigmentation to deliver smoother, supple skin, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

But let’s not forget that your largest surface area also needs protection and if there’s one thing you can do to prevent premature ageing it’s to avoid sun damage. Our SunActive SPF 50+ Face & Body Lotion  contains complete spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen actives and provides very high protection, working together with our SunActive Face & Body Recovery Cream to soothe and hydrate after sun exposure.

 Your largest surface area needs protecting

It may play second fiddle to your face but your body deserves just as much TLC to last you a lifetime in great skin.
