The Ultimate Skin Care Q&A
by Andrea Young
Last week we put a question box up in our Instagram story (@bodyco.australia) and gave you a chance to ask us your Skin Care Questions!
In case you missed them, and the answers, we have put the most popular ones together in this blog!
1. How do I layer my skin care?
General rule of thumb is cleanse/exfoliate and then layer your skin care products from thinnest to thickest.
Usually, the 'thinner' products have active ingredients in them that can get deeper into the skin, so need to be as close to the skin as possible. The last product will be your SPF, as that is usually thick, it will block anything on top of it.
HOWEVER, the way that we have formulated our products means that you can use ONE product for many purposes.
For example, our day Face Oil have natural, active ingredients in them that can deeply penetrate the skin AS WELL as having a natural, in-built UV & DNA protector.
Similar with our Daily Moisturiser, it has been specially formulated as a serum with natural, active ingredients that have anti-aging & hydrating properties, as well as sun protection.
2. How long does it take for a new routine to work?
Your might notice small improvements when you first start using a new product, but to see the best results, you need to, consistently, use that product for 4 weeks.
This is because the 'skin cycle' is 28 days long, and you need to naturally go through an entire cycle to see optimal results.
3. How often should I exfoliate?
This depends on the exfoliator you are using, your skin type (if more sensitive) & skin concern.
We recommend at least twice a week.

4. How do I get glowing skin?
The key to Glowing Skin is in your lifestyle. You need to;
- Follow a 'Skin Food' diet. That is, eat foods that are skin boosting & avoid sugar and processed foods.
- Drink at least 2 litres of water every day.
- Get 8 hours of sleep.
- Use BodyCo Face Oils.
5. Should I stop doing my skin care routine?
Only do this if you're not getting results or skin is becoming irritated.
We recommend taking a step back and simplifying your routine. Simply wash your face with warm water & a face washer (morning and night) and using either our Tinted Face Serum or Daily Moisturiser (they both have natural skin boosting actives and sun protection!)
We will regularly give you a chance to ask us questions and get involved with content on our social's. Make sure your are following us on Instagram (@bodyco.australia) so we can answer your questions and help you make the best skin choices!
