Albeit living in a warm and humid climate, the benefits of using lotions are abundant. Many of us work in offices and sleep at night in air conditioned environments due to the immense heat. This causes Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) which dehydrates your skin and causes it to develop extreme dryness or oiliness.
We created our Second Skin Body Lotion to glide smoothly on your body just like a second skin, with a luxuriously soft texture that is comfortably light enough for daily use. With the power trio of Green Tea extract, Vitamin B3 and Vitamin E, this lotion works to combat the appearance of sun-damaged skin while removing dull and dead skin flakes to rejuvenate underlying tissues.
Glycerin in our Second Skin Body Lotion is a humectant that functions by drawing in moisture from the outer layers into deeper levels of your skin. They go hand in hand with occlusives - emollients that form a layer on top of your skin to prevent all that drawn moisture from escaping. Formulated with organic shea butter and sunflower oil which are rich in oleic acid and linoleic acid, this body lotion is perfect for moisturising and regenerating your skin in humid and warm climates!
The best time to apply lotion is right after a shower, as your pores open up from the warm water and steam and is ready for a deeper hydrating experience. This also seals in the moisture and keeps your skin effectively hydrated throughout the day. You can also apply lotion by massaging it in slowly before bed to stimulate blood circulation and new cell generation, allowing for healthy cell function in your skin overnight.
Men and women from all walks of life, climates and regions can benefit from the use of lotions. Being the largest organ of our body and the best barrier against our environment, it is imperative that we take good care of our skin. Moisturising is not just a vanity issue - good hydration and nourishment ensures better skin health for it to work properly. For older women especially, they benefit the most from using lotions regularly as their skin tends to become drier over time. Lotions help to keep their skin healthy and supple. From skin care to skin health and anti-ageing benefits, body lotions provide a multitude of benefits that we may sometimes overlook or take for granted.
