Spiff Up Blah Body Skin With This Below-The-Neck-Beauty Routine

Peels, exfoliators, cleansers, serums, masks —we use a lot of products to keep our complexions looking flawless. Now, take a minute and think about what you do for your body. Does bar soap and (maybe) some lotion sound familiar? We thought so.
The skin on your body is just as prone to aging, dullness, dehydration, hyperpigmentation, and acne as your face is, which is why it's important to give it a little bit of TLC to keep it protected and in prime condition. Thankfully, there are plenty of new options on the market to help you in your quest for below-the-neck skin perfection.
