8 Essential Skin-Care Products That Aren’t for Your Face

Because you need to nourish *all* of your skin.

When we think of skin care, usually our minds conjure images of clay masks and hydrating serums. We’d venture a guess that you feel the same, but considering your skin is your body’s largest organ, it seems a little shortsighted to ignore the other 85 percent of it. Why shouldn’t your feet or your neck receive the same level of pampering as your face? So, while your bathroom cabinet is likely packed to the gills with products, we’d recommend making some space for these eight, which promise to treat, nourish, and hydrate various other parts of your body. Check them out below.


Bawdy Squeeze It Butt Mask, $9

What sits on the job all day, but never stops working? That’s right, your derriere. All dad jokes aside, though, the skin on your behind is constantly subjected to a range of fabrics and temperatures. Why not show it some love with a citrus mask to brighten, exfoliate, and calm inflammation?

La Mer The Neck and Décolleté Concentrate, $295

We’re as guilty as the next person of being addicted to our phones, but all that bent-head texting and content capturing has now cursed us with tech neck, aka the horizontal lines across your throat. There’s never been a better time to start treating that delicate skin, both lessening the existing lines and preventing new ones. Keep it glam with this new La Mer launch, made with their signature Miracle Broth concentrate for real results, fast.

Boscia Baby Soft Foot Peel, $20

Let’s face it—most people’s feet look pretty rough. Especially when you’re in a big city and running around all day in fabulous (but uncomfortable) shoes. An exfoliating treatment can buff away rough skin to reveal soft, sandal-ready feet. This treatment is even safe for sensitive skin.

Fur Oil, $46

Maintaining healthy skin around your pubic hair is a must for preventing ingrown hairs and other irritation. This oil is dermatologist- and gynecologist-tested, and helps soften hair while keeping those pores clear.

Starskin Hollywood Hand Model Nourishing Double-Layer Hand Mask Gloves, $10

Hands notoriously show some of the first signs of aging (sunscreen, every day), so a mask formulated specifically for them makes perfect sense to us. Shea butter and a blend of 16 botanicals help keep your skin soft and your cuticles nourished.

In Fiore Firmante Elevating Leg Tonic, $135

We’re already fans of wearing compression socks to promote circulation on a flight, but what about when we’re back on the ground? Massaging this botanical tonic into tired legs encourages lymphatic flow and helps detoxify and tone the skin. Echinacea, fennel, alfalfa, dandelion, and horse chestnut also reduce visible veins and give those stems a gleaming finish.

Anese Calm Your Tits Perky and Nourishing Boob Mask, $34

The award for best product name definitely goes to this mask from Anese, but when you get down to it, the amount of boob sweat we’ve been suffering through this summer makes this all but a necessity. Kaolin clay removes buildup from the underboob area, while marine collagen, green tea, and honey keep your girls glowing and moisturized. It’s also cooling on contact, so it’s perfect for blisteringly hot days.

Zoe Organics Belly Oil, $20

For all you mamas out there trying to minimize stretch marks, this nourishing oil uses a blend of jojoba, olive, grapeseed, rosehip, pumpkin, and tamamu to keep skin supple. And if you’re still in the throws of a growth spurt (we’ve all been there), this can help soothe your hips, legs, and everything in between.
