It is not just about how to use body lotion, but which type you choose that will help you get maximum benefits from your moisturising routine. The type of body lotion that works for you depends on your skin’s type, your lifestyle and simply personal preference. Your choice of body lotion may be determined by a particular issue you may want to treat. You may decide to have more than one body lotion in your bathroom cabinet, perhaps a rich, indulgent cream for a post-evening bath and a fast-absorbing lotion for mornings.
The seasons too can also impact your choice of moisturiser. During winter, the weather and central heating can increase skin’s sensitivity and make it extra thirsty, so you might want to swap your lightweight body lotion for a richer, more nourishing formula during the colder months and switch to a lighter textured lotion in the Summer.
