Body hydration: five reasons to make it part of your daily routine


A moisturising routine is fundamental to maintain healthy and fragrant skin.

Nothing like looking in the mirror and liking what you see, right? You have to take care of your skin on a daily basis, through good eating habits, physical exercise and, of course, good hydration and nutrition. If you're not yet convinced of the importance of body hydration, find out more here about the benefits that this new habit brings to your daily routine.

1. Healthier skin

The health of your skin is directly related to its hydration level. The more hydrated it is, the better it will resist external aggressions: cold, dry wind, for example, will no longer be as harmful to it, and its regeneration process will be much faster (in case of cuts or scratches, for example).

2. Rediscovering your body

Slowly applying a moisturising body cream by massaging it into the skin is a good way to rediscover and reconnect with your own body through touch. Natura Ekos moisturising lotions are perfect for this. In addition to providing a pleasant skin massage, their gentle, exotic scents will immediately transport you to the wilderness of Brazil.

3. Enhance your skin's beauty

Skin has a tendency to dry out in all seasons: due to cold and wind in winter; then exposure to sun and sea water and swimming pools in summer. In addition to the unpleasant tight feeling it causes, dryness makes the skin visibly rougher and gives it a whitish appearance or even causes cracks. Use moisturising body care products liberally to restore your skin's radiance, elasticity and vitality. And if the product you choose is based on nourishing and moisturising ingredients, such as shea or Ucuuba butter, that's even better.

4. Improve your self-esteem

"When women have a relationship with their bodies that is linked to pleasure, they become aware of it ultimately make it their own", explains Claudia Pinheiro. Moisturising your body plays an essential role in this: by applying the product to your skin, you are taking care of yourself, rediscovering your body and, without realising it, increasing your self-confidence and getting rid of bad patterns, fears and prejudices.

5. Relax the mind

The routine of moisturising your skin can be an ideal ally in reducing stress and relaxing the mind. If you want to save time, you can opt for products designed for use in the shower, such as banho de leite or Natura Ekos triple phase shower oils. Once applied in the shower, their fragrant formulas will provide pleasure and well-being as well as the necessary hydration, without wasting any time. Feel like adding to your routinte? As soon as you get out of the shower, while your skin is still wet, spray your entire body with one of the delicious Natura Ekos Frescores. Their deliciously fresh and fruity fragrances will prolong the feeling of well-being all day long.

Preparing your skin

Pollution residue deposited on the skin makes it fragile and dry. This is why it is essential to cleanse it before moving on to the moisturising stage. Ekos Castanha Exfoliating Butter is the ideal choice for this process, it deeply eliminates impurities thanks to the exfoliating particles of cane sugar contained in its formula. Solid exfoliating soaps are also great for this kind of skin preparation: they combat dryness and eliminate dead cells. These two products are perfect to regenerate your skin and prepare it for hydration.

Moisturising routines

Maintaining well nourished and radiant skin requires continuous care. This include both drinking two to three litres of water per day and implementing a daily hydration routine. We suggest using Ekos Castanha body lotionwhich leaves the skin full of vitality, soft and moisturised. Not to mention its silky texture and sensual fragrance.

Extra care

On overcast days or indoors, the use of sun protection is essential. Contrary to popular belief, it should be applied to the entire body, not just the face. This prevents the skin from becoming dry and dull. To keep your complexion looking radiant and full of vitality, even with sun protection, Ekos Buriti moisturising lotion will be your beauty routine's best asset. It enhances your natural complexion beautifully and its soft texture is sutiable for all skin types...

Healthy, glowing skin

A healthy diet and quality sleep contribute considerably to your skin's radiance. There are also products that optimise this effect, such as Ekos Castanha sublimating dry oil, its fluid texture is soft as silk and yet dry to the touch, leaving skin velvety and satiny, with no greasy after-effect!
