When is the best time to apply a body lotion?
A body lotion is an essential skincare product for soft, nourished, and smooth skin. If you deal with cracked itchy skin or rough patches, body lotion is something you shouldn’t ignore.
The Best Time to Apply Body Lotion -
Once you cleanse your skin it loses its natural oils, after shower water evaporates off your skin and leaves your skin feeling dry and tight. Hence it is best to immediately apply lotion over damp skin.
If you’re going for an outdoor exercise, prep your skin by applying a lightweight moisturizer. This can help reduce the dryness that may occur post-workout.
Shaving, not just removes unwanted hair but also removes dead skin. To keep the newly exposed skin protected from dryness it is important to moisturize, also using a lotion can help soothe any razor irritation.
Your body absorbs a lot of water while sleeping, which is also a reason why you wake up feeling dehydrated sometimes. Similarly, moisture is pulled out of the skin when we sleep. So applying a lotion right before bed helps you wake up with smooth and soft skin.
When you exfoliate, the dead skin cells which are removed make space for a new layer of skin. This new layer is delicate and needs to be moisturized. Applying body lotion on damp skin helps make it smooth and healthy.
After Washing your hands
Pandemic has made us wash our hands frequently causing dry flaky skin. To combat rough and dry hands be sure to apply a nourishing hand cream immediately after you wash.
Or just use a nourishing sanitizer that properly cleanses and hydrates your skin.
P.s.: Body lotion is not just a winter essential, your skin needs nourishment even during summers. We recommend lightweight, non-sticky lotions for effective results.
