The Importance of Body Skincare: Exploring the Best Medical Grade Body Products
When it comes to skincare, the skin on our body often gets put on the back burner compared to our faces. However, our bodies deserve equal attention and care to age gracefully and in tandem with the face. After all, the skin is the largest organ in our body and plays a vital role in our protection.
As we age, our skin goes through changes such as the breakdown of collagen, loss of elasticity, moisture, and increased laxity, leading to wrinkles and sagging. This process is accelerated by external factors such as sun exposure, pollution, and unhealthy, inflammatory lifestyle habits. Over time, if our bodies are neglected compared to our faces, we’re left with a stark contrast in the appearance of aging between the face, neck, chest, and body. This is why we’re all about prevention at Sapien, and we’ve put together a collection of the best medical grade body skincare products that we’ve tested over the years that truly work.

Cleansing & Exfoliation:
For daily cleansing, the Supracor Stimulite Bath Mitt is truly the MVP, it’ll replace your shower loofas and you’ll never look back. This dual-sided bath mitt provides a gentle, invigorating exfoliation. Designed with honeycomb cells it delicately removes dead skin cells and stimulates blood circulation, promoting cellular renewal. Furthermore, when used consistently, the Supracor Stimulite Bath Mitt can help to alleviate ingrown hairs and soften dry, rough patches of skin. Arguably the best part is that it is naturally anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, so it will last forever.
Treatments and Moisturizers:
Exfoliation is an essential step in any body skincare regimen. Removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin reveals smoother and brighter skin underneath and assists cellular turnover. This process not only helps with anti-aging but also improves the overall texture of the skin.
The Environ Body Kit is an amazing addition to your body skincare routine. This kit includes the Derma-Lac Lotion and A, C & E Oil, both formulated with vitamins and antioxidants to nourish, soothe and hydrate the skin. The Derma-Lac Lotion gently exfoliates using lactic acid, urea, glycerin, and more, revealing a smoother texture and a radiant glow. The A, C & E Oil envelopes your skin in a rich, fast-absorbing layer of moisture while supplying essential vitamins to your skin. This combination boosts the overall health of your skin, and when used regularly, it can visibly improve the appearance of sun damage, uneven skin tone, and signs of aging.
The IS Clinical Youth Body Serum is a unique blend of potent antioxidants, supportive botanicals, and advanced science, designed to rejuvenate your skin. This hydrating body serum contains the same beneficial ingredients as the Youth Serum for the face, formulated to hydrate, soothe, and combat signs of aging in the skin. Key ingredients such as white willow bark extract, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants work synergistically to enhance hydration, brighten the complexion, and improve skin laxity, dullness, and texture for a noticeably vibrant and youthful appearance.
Sente’s Dermal Repair Body Cream is another beauty in our line-up of body skincare products. This silky, hydrating cream is filled with a unique blend of ingredients aimed at restoring your skin’s hydration and integrity. It’s formulated with patented Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) technology, which deeply hydrates and helps to repair skin damage while supporting the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Plus, it’s enriched with soothing ingredients like green tea extract and essential vitamins to nourish your skin. We love it because it delivers measurable skin improvement, appearing more plump and firm with a noticeably smooth texture and healthy glow. In short, Sente Dermal Repair Body Cream not only nourishes and hydrates your skin, but it also works diligently to combat the visible signs of aging.
Sunscreens: Protecting Your Skin All Over
As mentioned earlier, sunscreen is a crucial step in preventing premature aging on the body. We offer a range of medical-grade sunscreens that not only protect against UV rays but also provide additional benefits for the skin. It’s key to remember that SPF needs to be reapplied on the body just as it does on the face, every two hours. If you’re not ready to commit – UPF clothing is going to be your best friend.
