When was the last time you sought out the latest and greatest in skincare for your body, instead of just your face? When was the last time you made sure the ingredients in your body wash or body lotion didn’t contain harmful toxins and chemicals being absorbed by your skin?
We’ve noticed a trend as of late, which focuses mainly on facial skincare (e.g. 10 step skincare regimes including cleansers, toners, serums, exfoliants, the list goes on) and not the skin on the rest of our bodies. A SkinStore study found that the average American woman uses at least 16 skincare and cosmetic products on her face each day. The average cost per day for these products? $8! It doesn’t seem like much, but when you consider there are 365 days in a year - we are spending close to $3,000 per year!
The average person has about 85 billion skin cells, making it the largest organ on our bodies. The skin on our face is only a small portion of our total skin, the rest covering from our chins down.
So why have we neglected the skin on our feet, hands, necks and the rest of our bodies? We would assume it is due to the fact that our face is the main way in which we present ourselves to the world. You can tell a lot about a person by their face, their expressions, and of course, their skin. We use the skin to judge things like where a person may live, what type of job they have, and of course, their age. But, the face isn’t the only area giving away these clues. Areas such as our hands, arms, legs, and neck give telltale signs as well.
Nothing can stop the process of aging - no cream, pill or ointment can stop your body from going through the natural process. Instead of putting our efforts into fighting something that can’t be stopped, we are encouraging you to embrace aging and use products that make you feel beautiful in your own skin - no matter what age you are. There is no shame in aging. Aging shows you have been on this earth long enough to enjoy all the wonderful things it has to offer - whether that’s traveling, having children, landing your dream career, or many other amazing achievements.
Our team at HERENOW saw a major gap in the market, where ourselves and those around us were neglecting the skin on our bodies and catering only to the skin on our faces. We created our products with the goal of helping you care for, feel confident, and LOVE the skin you’re in, whether you’re 18 or 85.
