Is your skin ever dry? I bet. And that goes not just solely for those of us who do bear the inconvenience of dry skin all year around but for all of us who shower! Which takes me to my point – water that runs in your pipes is hard.
What does that mean? Well, it means that it contains ion salts that give it its so- called hardness. Hard water is not all bad. In fact it is good for you heart and your bones, however what it is not good for is the moisture levels in your skin.
In fact, it pretty much eliminates moisture causing your skin to become dry, itchy and prone to irritations and skin conditions.
And because forgoing body lotion after a shower is a transgression most of us are often guilty of, I thought that a gentle reminder wouldn’t hurt.
So here’s a selection of quality body lotions that might be an excellent way to replenish your skin after a shower.
Inspired by the healing, nourishing powers of yoghurt, this body lotion is packed with active proteins extracted from the magical substance, which have a highly potent hydrating action and leave the skin soft and velvety. In addition, the lotion also contains rose oil and vitamin E.
The list of rose oil’s health benefits is infinite, but lets just mention that it is a powerful antiseptic and an anti-inflammatory that has been known to reduce the severity of fever, rheumatism and arthritis; it also tones and lifts the skin due its ability to contract connective tissues.
It is an aphrodisiac and it also does away with toxins; its anti-oxidant action speeds up skin’s recovery and thus contributes to the reduction of scars, spots or stretch marks! Who doesn’t want some of that!
The company doesn’t use parabens, petroleum-based chemicals or synthetic pigments!
The delicate and refreshing scent of iris flower is the first thing you’ll notice about this body lotion. The second is how silky and calm it leaves your skin. And if you really want to know about its precious hidden qualities, you’d have to look at the natural ingredients that make it so special.
Calendula oil, linden, lemon balm and vitamin E are some of the culprits responsible for this cocktail of skin well-being inducing potion.
Calendula oil is extracted from marigolds and has many general health benefits and it is highly recommended for severely dry skin. Its anti-inflammatory action speeds up skin cells regeneration, which helps small cuts and insect bites heal quicker. It improves skin appearance and tone.
Linden is a truly remarkable tree with a diverse spectrum of health benefits; in skin care, linden is effective in calming itchiness. Lemon balm smooths out fine lines and makes the skin look younger, and vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that inhibits the action of free radicals.
This product is free of parabens, petroleum-based chemicals, animal proteins, pigments, alcohols and allergens; its rich smooth texture is perfect for all types of skin and especially sensitive.
This last suggestion is especially appropriate for those of you who adore opulence and love to treat themselves to luxurious items. But not only do you get glamour and style, you also get good quality skin care, particularly suitable for sensitive skin.
In addition, the lotion has a sophisticated feminine scent resulting from the blend of orange blossoms, ginger, woods and vanilla.
The skin on your body is just as important as that on your face, even thought less people get to see it! Great skin is not all there is to life, but it certainly is a good place to start! The feeling of being comfortable in your own skin is priceless!
