You should never neglect your body care and we recommend using a body lotion.
Many women tend to follow a multi-step facial skincare routine, however, the opposite is true for our bodies, which we often neglect - this leads to problems such as dryness, cellulite and even wrinkles, and we should pay more attention to body care.
There are a range of reasons why your skin may be prone to dryness.
In the winter. Your skin is especially prone to dryness in the winter months. The cooler months - and the cold air and wind that come with them - can dry out your skin. In addition, enjoying hot showers and/or heaters can also cause dry skin. That's because they remove moisture from your skin, making it dry and saggy.
In the summer. It's not just the cold that can dry out your skin. Summer often brings some unwanted dryness too! High temperatures, UV rays and frequent showers can dry out your skin. Dehydrating your skin.
Lifestyle factors. Stress and certain dietary habits, such as eating too much salt, can affect your skin's moisture levels.
Medication problems. In some cases, specific medications can cause moisture levels to drop. You think this may be the case, it is recommended to consult your doctor.
Although skin conditions may be caused by internal factors, there are some regular treatments or products that we can incorporate into our daily lives to improve its condition. Limit your bath time. Unlike facial skin, body skin tends to be thinner and the skin on our bodies varies in different areas. Hot water and long showers or baths can remove oil from the skin and strong soaps need to be avoided. Strong soaps and detergents can strip the oil from the skin.
In the fall and winter months, you can mix a few drops of essential oil into your body lotion or focus on dry areas first and then use body lotion to enhance micronization. Depending on your situation, you may choose to add different essential oils such as rose to moisturize, lavender to help with anti-inflammation and relaxation, and the fresh scent of grapefruit to relieve stress and help tone the skin. Instead of just pouring the lotion on and smoothing it out, gently massage it in an up-and-down rubbing or circular motion to relax the skin and muscles, which also facilitates absorption.
It helps to slow down the aging process. Body lotion will help soothe the body during the dry winter months when we lose moisture, and it will better help keep our skin glowing during the summer months when frequent showers drain away the oils. Once you establish a body care routine, it is easier to maintain. It boosts confidence and when you look good, you feel good. It keeps the skin healthy, which in turn makes you healthier.
There are many styles of body lotions available today, and there are also relatively light silicone ingredients available if you want to combine the feel of your skin with the moisturizing effect.
