How to Get the Most Out of Your Body Lotion
Ever wonder how you can make your body lotion work even better? One of our best anti-aging tips is to moisturize not just your face, but also your entire body in the most effective way possible. Here are some useful advice and some of our Miami dermatology sensitive skin care products!
Longwill’s Anti-Aging Tips: Apply Lotion Correctly!
After a steaming hot shower, it’s natural to want to dry yourself off completely and forget about putting on lotion. Many people only use lotion on their bodies after they shave or whenever their skin’s feeling dry.
Whether you put on body lotion every day or only once in a while, you’re probably not doing it right. One of our best anti-aging tips is to use body lotion in the most effective way possible. While it might not seem like it makes that much of a difference, you will see the results for yourself if you try out this method.
First and foremost, we highly recommend using body lotion every time you shower, not just on special occasions. This will ensure that your skin is always moisturized and hydrated, keeping dryness and dull-looking skin away.
Unless you have a skin condition on your body that requires a specific skincare routine from your dermatologist, we encourage you to use body lotion often. As for when you should moisturize your body, it should be right after a shower—while your skin is still damp.
Take a few extra minutes after your shower to slather on body lotion to lock in the moisture from the remaining water left on your body. Your skin should be damp, not sopping wet, to get the best results.
While a lotion does already provide your skin with hydration, you will get the most out of your lotion if you apply it correctly. Because lotions act as an occlusive skin care product, it will lock in any moisture that is already in your skin and prevent transepidermal water loss.
Applying a lotion while your skin is still slightly wet will prevent your skin from becoming dry as fast as it would if you apply the lotion to dry skin. Another one of our anti-aging tips is to use Miami dermatology sensitive skin care products.
