Ask Dr. Macrene: What Is the Best Skincare For Body?
Kelly Klein is an interior designer, photographer, and a good friend of Dr. Macrene. 
 
The Best Timing For Body Care:
The best time for body care is as soon as you get out of the shower while your skin is still moist and damp.
 
Don't:
Avoid hot showers. Hot water will strip the skin's natural barrier and dehydrate it through evaporative cooling, making skin dry no matter what you do afterward.
 
Do:
1. Warm (not piping hot) shower and gentle olive oil soap to cleanse.
2. In Dr. Macrene's experience, moisturizers that contain shea butter, cocoa butter and olive extracts tend to work best. In absence of that, use body oil or other moisturizers to lock in hydration.
3. Go for the elbows, knees, and heels first then the remaining skin.
 
Dr. Macrene's Recommendations:
 
Coddle every inch of your skin with these organic, natural ingredients
 

Dr. Macrene applies her Neck and Décolletage Treatment lotion on neck, chest, tops of hands and now forearms as well to protect against sun damage and to rejuvenate her body skin.

Hydrate the neck: Olive Oil Derivatives, Glycerin, Jojoba Esters, Sunflower Oil Derivatives, Organic Cocoa Butter Extracts, Hyaluronic Acid

Keep skin hydrated: Olive Oil Derivatives, Squalane, Sunflower Seed Extract, Mushroom Extract, Hyaluronic Acid and Phospholipids
