Yous skin needs antioxidants, vitamins, a rich cleanser and a hydrating moisturizer to remain healthy!

According to specialists in the field, using too many products on your skin is unnecessary and could even be harmful, if combined incorrectly. However, because the skin is the largest organ in the human body, it's no surprise that many people keep a lot of body products handy.

However, your skin requires only a few easy treatments to maintain its health and appearance. These therapies are often the exact ones your body needs to function at its best.

Before you choose a body care routine, here are five essential things your skin requires for good health:


Antioxidants can protect skin cells from the adverse effects of free radicals, an unavoidable byproduct of the body's metabolism and exposure to the environment. Free radicals may lead to skin damage, premature aging, and other problems.

Antioxidants available in skincare products are applied topically and penetrate the epidermis. Since the epidermis is the skin layer protecting the body from environmental damage, antioxidants can be highly effective in neutralizing free radicals, preventing them from penetrating deeper skin layers.

Looking for a lotion loaded up with Antioxidants, that can even help you get a better tan? Base Tan, contains powerful antioxidant oils like seaberry seed, avocado, and acai that’ll help you bronze quickly and naturally while leaving your skin happy and hydrated.


While antioxidants serve as the body's first line of defense against harmful chemicals in the environment, vitamins are equally essential in sustaining skin health and keeping it smooth. 

Some vitamins have been proven to positively affect the appearance and health of skin, including Vitamin E. It is beneficial at promoting the formation of collagen, which is an essential building block of healthy skin.

Looking to supplement your skincare routine with the vitamins your skin needs to thrive? High Tide is a lightweight body lotion that is packed with natural Vitamin A, and inulin derived from chicory root to provide long-lasting hydration.


Exfoliants are essential for maintaining the health of your skin, but as we age, our bodies may need a little help shedding dead skin. The skin will become rough and flaky without routine exfoliation, which can lead to irritation and make the skin appear dull. Exfoliating also makes skin more receptive to moisture and other skincare products and should be a regular part of your skincare routine.

White Sands Dual Action Body Scrub works both chemically and physically using AHAs from kiwi fruit extract natural quartz crystals to polish away dry, cracked, dead skin. The rice granules found in White Sands actually encapsulate alpha hydroxy acids that work to dissolve the glue-like substance that binds your dead skin cells together, leaving you feeling smoother and softer. Plus, it is enriched with mango butter, which has incredible anti-inflammatory properties, that help sooth the skin and can relieve eczema and dermatitis. We recommend using White Sands Dual Action Body Scrub twice a week, but ultimately you’re the expert on your own skin’s needs.


The outermost layers of the skin are the first line of defense against dirt, bacteria, and other potential contaminants. The skin keeps these contaminants out, but it also accumulates them on the surface.

It's up to your body wash to rid the skin of all the contaminants that can accumulate, however some body cleansers contain sulfates, that strip your skin of it’s essential moisture. If a cleanser doesn't work hard enough to remove impurities, it will be forced into the deeper layers of the skin, but if a cleanser works too hard, it can leave your skin feeling stiff and dry. 

Washed Up All in One Shower Oil is a lush nourishing oil that leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized using Sweet Almond Oil and Monoi Oil. No more uncomfortable, tight skin. It dissolves dirt and oil while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture barrier.


Skin needs a good moisturizer. This substance is responsible for drawing water into the skin to hydrate it. A good moisturizer will help protect the skin while also keeping it healthy.

High Tide is what the body needs to be nourished, protected, glowing, smooth, radiant, and every other wonderful word you can think of! Our supercharged formula restores dull, dry, and irritable skin to a healthier and more balanced state. Thanks to barrier-supportive vitamins, you can lock in hydration immediately out of the shower and restore the moisture you’ve lost from environmental factors.


Many people have the wrong idea about body care. They think the more products they use, the better they are at taking care of their skin. However, this is an untrue assumption because skincare professionals agree that the human body needs only a few things to stay healthy.

If you have a good skincare routine, you can improve the skin’s health and restore its youthful glow. Choose your products and routine carefully, following all of your body's specific requirements, and you can do everything you need to do to prevent visible damage and improve skin health.

Remember to always consult your dermatologist or skincare specialist to choose a few products that are compatible with your skin.
