Traditional soap is an important part of cleansing, but can leave the body dry and cracked with corrosive chemicals. It is important then, to moisturize the body’s largest organ with mild, natural body cleansers like Odele Body Wash, a new, mellow lather for your head, shoulders, knees, and toes, in four styles. 

First up, Odele’s Clarifying Body Wash provides a deep yet gentle exfoliating clean that won’t strip oils from sensitive skin. With a 100% natural bergamot and mint fragrance included, coats of all colors will come out fruity and fresh after a clarifying soak. 

Odele’s second recent offering, Moisturizing Body Wash, contains eight vitamin B complexes, which act like a multivitamin that hydrates and nourishes. Its bitter yet bright grapefruit and orange peel scent augments a nutritional bath with a citrus bouquet. 

Odele’s Soothing Body Wash features a moisture-rich and restorative oat extract that cleanses and calms skin with a sweet aloe after scent and an earthy cucumber aroma to continue that mind-body connection. 

And an Ultra Sensitive Body Wash (as accepted by the National Eczema Association) cuts out the pheromones for a fragrance-free froth for extra tender epidermises that balances and calms as it cleanses.

Incorporating Odele’s herbal products is a reassuring way to know that you’re treating your skin as it should be:  treated: As the one and only suit you’ll always sport. Keep it clean and keep it happy with high-quality body wash.

Why We Can’t Get Enough of This Hydrating Cooling Mist
Cooling Mineral Hydro Mist

With the gradual lifting of quarantine restrictions around the country, many areas are reopening their beaches, parks, and recreational spaces. If you’ve stepped up your workout routine in response, you’re not alone. The long months of COVID-induced hibernation, combined with humankind’s Pavlovian response to the onset of summer, have created a “get back in shape” boom like no other. Where we used to grunt and scowl our way through a sweaty midday run or core day at the gym, now we’re doing our laps and crunches with an ear-to-ear grin. After seemingly endless weeks of trying to work out in the living room, even couch potatoes are overjoyed to be exercising out in the wild.

Alas, the same hardcore workout that gives you a beach-worthy body can take a heavy toll on your skin. Sun, sweat, physical fatigue, combined with the inevitable workout grimace, are the culprits behind skin issues like hyper-pigmentation, age lines, loss of elasticity, breakouts … the list goes on. Even if you’re wearing sunscreen (which you’d better be) and washing your face directly after your workout, the vigorous motion and loss of hydration that come with exercise can lead over time to cosmetic woes like saggy jowls and marionette lines, gaping pores, and a general baseball mitt texture to your skin that is anything but sexy.

Mineral vs chemical sunscreen: Which one should you actually use?
mens skincare routine changes to make man in sunscreen

Even on cloudy days or days spent indoors, wearing sunscreen every day is a non-negotiable part of a healthy skincare routine. Not only can excess sunlight cause premature aging of the skin, but it's also critical to wear sunscreen to protect against various types of skin cancer. When choosing sunscreen, you'll find two main types -- chemical and mineral sunscreen. The mineral vs chemical sunscreen debate has been an ongoing one, as both forms of sunscreens have their pros and cons. Below, we'll dive into the pros and cons of each type of sunscreen to help you choose the best option.

Pros and cons of chemical sunscreen
Chemical sunscreens, often made of chemicals such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, or other similar chemicals, are absorbed into the skin when applied. This type of sunscreen is generally easy to apply to the face and body and absorbs UV rays that touch the skin.
Pro: hydrating for the skin
Due to the thin and blendable nature of chemical sunscreens, they are generally hydrating for the skin and can be added to cosmetics such as moisturizers, skin tints, or foundation products.
Pro: sweat and water resistant
Many cosmetics that market "SPF included" contain chemical sunscreens. People also like chemical sunscreens because they are quite sweat and water-resistant.
Pro: no white residue
Chemical sunscreens also blend well into the skin and do not leave any white residue. If you think back to the sunscreen you used as a kid, chances are it was a chemical sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens have become more popular in recent years as consumers are paying more attention to the ingredients in their skincare and health products.
Con: not the best for sensitive skin
Although chemical sunscreens are easy to use, they are not always a great choice for those with skin conditions or sensitive skin. The chemicals found in this type of sunscreen can cause allergic reactions or worsen conditions such as melasma.
Con: chemical ingredients and environmental impact
In addition, some of the chemicals used in these products may be linked to cancer, as trace amounts get absorbed into the bloodstream. Another con to consider is the environmental impact of chemical sunscreen, which may damage reefs and other marine environments.

Why everyone is saying bakuchiol is the new (natural) alternative to retinol for your skin
skin

Expected to reach USD 1.79 billion by 2030, the global retinol market has been on the rise recently -- offering an easy and accessible way to achieve brighter, more youthful skin at home. Retinol works by helping to increase your skin's proliferation (creating new skin cells) and helps increase your skin's collagen production to help target acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and other common skin concerns.

Although many people find they have great success with retinol, it's not for everyone. Not only can retinol be harsh on certain skin types, but it's not always the best choice for those who prefer a more natural skincare routine or one that is plant-based. That's why many people opt for Bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative. Below, we'll break down the hype about Bakuchiol and its potential benefits for your skin.
What is bakuchiol?
Bakuchiol comes from a plant grown in India known as Psoralea corylifolia. Also known as the "babchi" plant, this botanical extract has been used in ancient Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic practices for centuries. Recently, Bakuchiol has gained popularity in the skincare world, offering properties similar to those of the well-known retinol. Bakuchol extract is offered in many forms to add to your skincare routine, such as in serums or moisturizers. Sometimes, Bakuchiol is also combined with other botanicals, such as jojoba or rose hip, to help improve effectiveness.
