Just as we care the skin on our faces, our bodies also need attention. Because the skin on the body suffers from the same exposure and conditions, total body skin care is vital.
While several conditions, including cellulite, stretch marks and psoriasis, are more commonly thought of as body conditions than facial ones, others, like acne, hyperpigmentation and photodamage, seem to affect both the face and body. But despite their similarities, fundamental differences exist between upper and lower conditions that make separate treatment approaches necessary. Facial skin is typically thinner than body skin, for example. And differences in follicle density also mean that sebaceous activity is generally higher in the face. Additionally, there are many more follicles on the body; therefore, the body does not have same reparative functions as the face.
