While the application of face lotions is common practice for most women, there are many more who neglect to use a good body lotion to maintain the condition of the skin on the rest of the body.
As a person's skin is one of the first signs of aging it is important that you take care of it, not only on the face but all over the body.
The body lotions that are currently available on the market have active ingredients to protect and rejuvenate skin.
These ingredients such as antioxidants and sunscreens will help to reduce the aging process of the skin.
It is a good habit to get into of applying a body lotion after a bath or a shower when the skin has been cleansed.
By regularly applying body lotion you reduce the chance of getting scaly patches on the skin.
It will help to keep the skin moisturized and in doing so will slow the aging process.
Light body lotions are sufficient for the majority of the body but for areas that are particularly dry such as around the ankles and feet, the elbows and knees, a heavier lotion might be necessary to help reduce dryness.
Rubbing body lotion on will also stimulate the blood flow to the skin.
This will help somewhat in reducing the amount of cellulite that you may have.
While there are many products on the market that claim to reduce or eliminate cellulite, research has proven that these do in fact offer very little help in the removal of cellulite.
It can however help the skin to be temporarily tightened and therefore appear to be more toned.
If nothing else they will make you feel better for a short time and that has got to be good for you.
I personally make my own using fruits and olive oil, plus the scent more natural.
Lemon & honey, lime & Olive oil, to clean the skin, before I apply these, I make up a scrub using fresh line juice and sea salt with little olive oil, this is great and removes all of the dead skin, but don’t use if you got any spots or cuts on the skin ( Ouch).
