The difference between facial and body skin – and how to treat both

The difference between facial and body skin – and how to treat both

It is important to establish and maintain good skin care habits, from head to toe. Yet, we often prioritize the skin on our faces when the rest of our body is equally important. While we often prioritize facial skin with clinical creams and treatments, our body's skin deserves just as much care and nourishment. Body oil is an overlooked hero of our skin care routine–an essential you don't want to miss.

The skin on the face differs from the skin we see on the body, so different treatments and formulas are needed to treat each area. Bioelements new dewluxe for Body oil, combined with the already-successful dewluxe facial oil, are two necessary products to achieve hydrated, glowing skin.

What are the differences between facial and body skin?

One key difference is the skin thickness because it varies across the body, facial skin tends to be significantly thinner compared to areas like the legs and arms. Another difference between the face and the body is the types of oil glands found in the skin. Facial skin has a higher concentration of oil glands – which is why the t-zone can get oily for some people. Conversely, body areas such as the elbows lack this abundance of oil glands, so they are often dry. Lastly, the hair follicles on our faces differ from our body hair as our face harbors a more significant amount and is finer. Unlike body hair follicles, facial follicles are more susceptible to clogging and breakouts. This is why you should never apply body oil to your face – to avoid potential issues like congestion and breakouts.

Bioelements dewluxe facial oil is created specifically for the unique needs of facial skin, while dewluxe for body is crafted specifically for the unique needs of body skin; the two are not interchangeable.

How is dewluxe for body different from dewluxe Face oil?

While both formulas contain the same blend of occlusive argan, squalene and sea kale, dewluxe for body is tailored to provide more occlusivity for body skin. The formula is packed with a blend of occlusive oils jojoba, coconut, geranium, and soybean oils, to deeply nourish skin and alleviate dryness – particularly in areas prone to roughness (such as elbows and knees).

The dewluxe for body formula is a luxurious yet lightweight body oil that seamlessly absorbs into the skin, providing hydration and a dewy finish without any greasy or sticky residue. Infused with aromatherapeutic essential oils, it offers additional wellbeing benefits without overpowering your other daily fragrances and perfumes. With daily use, the dewluxe for body oil effectively seals in moisture, restores protective lipid barriers, and imparts a natural dewiness.

This product is perfect for individuals seeking luxurious hydration, especially those with dry, lackluster, or flaky skin. To use at home, apply the oil to clean fingertips and warm it between your hands. Gently inhale the aromatherapeutic blend and massage the body. dewluxe for body can also be applied to cuticles, scalp, and hair.

“I love using body oil to lock in moisture,” says Bioelements expert esthetician Dawn Gantt. “What is so incredible about dewluxe for body is that it leaves my skin feeling nourished and hydrated. It’s easy to use, and I can immediately put clothes on—my body skin never feels sticky or slimy.”

For those who have tattoos and body art, applying dewluxe for body onto the area makes the color and lines more defined. “I witnessed with my own eyes how the tattoo colors instantly came alive,” says Bioelements expert esthetician Teresa Stenzel. “You can only imagine what it’s doing for the skin underneath, and the results get better and better with every day of use.”

Why would someone need both face oil and body oil?

Using body and face oil is essential for maintaining healthy and hydrated skin for several reasons, but simply put, you need both because you have both a face and a body! Take a look at the benefits of incorporating face and body oil into your skincare routine. 

1. Hydration

Body oils effectively lock in moisture, prevent water loss from the skin, and maintain hydration levels. Applying oil to dry or dehydrated skin is especially beneficial.

2. Nourishment

Both Bioelements dewluxe for body and dewluxe for Face contains plant-based natural moisturizing agents, antioxidants, and fatty acids that nourish the skin. Ingredients such as squalene and sea kale work on top of and below the skin barrier to lubricate cells and encourage turnover, improving rough skin. These nutrients also help keep the skin healthy and resilient against environmental stressors.

3. Softness and Smoothness

dewluxe for body softens and smooths the skin’s texture, making it feel supple and silky. Regularly using this product can help reduce rough patches, improve skin texture, and promote a more youthful appearance.

4. Enhance Relaxation

Massaging body oil into the skin can promote relaxation and reduce stress. dewluxe’s essential oil blend of ylang-ylang, pelargonium graveolens flower, anise seed, clary, and chamomile flower oils provide aromatherapeutic wellbeing benefits and enhance the feeling of luxe hydration. Additionally, the soothing scent and tactile sensation of applying oil can create a calming ritual, making it an excellent addition to self-care routines.

5. Versatility

dewluxe for body serves multiple purposes beyond moisturizing: for massage, added to bathwater for a luxurious soak, applied to nail beds, or used to nourish and condition the ends of hair.

Add both dewluxe for body and dewluxe for Face into your skin care routine, to help keep your skin hydrated, nourished, and protected, leading to a healthier and more radiant complexion.
