frequently asked Questions
Daily creaming is not absolutely necessary. Pay attention to what your skin is telling you because it is constantly communicating with us. Does it tighten and is it dry? Then apply a high-quality vegetable oil daily to the still damp skin immediately after the shower and use a balm such as our FIVE Shea Cream for very dry or rough areas of the skin.
However, make sure in advance to clean your skin with lukewarm and not hot water and use shower gels with mild sugar or coconut surfactants, preferably from natural cosmetics . They dry out your skin less.
By the way, you don't need to soap your legs in the shower every day, it's enough to wash the sensitive parts of your body with shower gel.
If the skin on the body is very dry, it usually takes more than good body care to improve the skin's condition. Externally, a rich balm like FIVE Shea Cream helps for very dry areas of skin and a nourishing vegetable oil for the whole body, applied to damp skin.
Caring for the skin from the inside is also important. You should make sure you have a good supply of omega-3 , this not only applies to vegans. Check your drinking behavior, especially in winter. Do you drink enough water or unsweetened tea?
Smoking, alcohol and stress also have a severely dehydrating effect. Feel free to visit our blog , we have written many articles about dry skin.
Depends on what you prefer to feel on your skin. Do you like a light skin feel and a non-sticky texture? Then you will probably be happiest with a body lotion . It contains a high water content and absorbs quickly. Especially good if you are in a hurry in the morning.
If you like turning creaming into a beauty ritual and prefer a nourishing and gently melting texture, then you belong to the body butter faction. It contains less water, but more nourishing vegetable oils, shea butter or cocoa butter.
Waterless body butter , i.e. balms like our FIVE Shea Cream , or solid body butter go one step further. Your advantage lies in the water-free formulation. These products do not require preservatives or emulsifiers. Waterless toiletries are the most sustainable as they are highly concentrated and require less packaging. They are particularly suitable for you if you have very dry or rough skin on your body and are looking for a rich body care product.
Body care is much more than washing and creaming the skin. It starts with the food you eat, the exercise you do to stimulate blood flow to the skin and ends with the products that come into contact with your skin.
We love natural and vegan care products made from high-quality vegetable oils that provide your skin with nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. We look at body care holistically and empower you to immerse yourself in the connections between skin, nutrition and care on our blog .
