At What Time of Day Should You Moisturize Your Body?

The body's skin is constantly under attack from many external factors, such as pollution, weather, and the friction from your clothing. To care for and preserve your skin, you should moisturize it. Focus.

Why Should You Moisturize Your Body?

Like the hair and face, the skin of the body can be stressed by external factors (wind, cold, pollution, etc.), water during washing and friction from clothing. The hydrolipidic film on the surface of the skin, which is responsible for protecting the skin and maintaining water reserves, is attacked daily. The epidermis becomes rough, dull and taut if it is not adequately hydrated. Good hydration ensures that the skin becomes supple, comfortable, soft and radiant again. In addition, good hydration prevents skin aging and loss of elasticity.

How Do I Moisturize My Body on a Daily Basis?

Every skin needs moisture, and without exception. To achieve this, you should use a moisturizer that meets your needs and apply it to your knees and elbows as well. These are the two driest parts of your body. You can also opt for a vegetable oil, as it has nourishing and repairing properties. However, just applying a moisturizer is not enough. To have a beautiful, well-moisturized skin, you also need to follow a whole ritual that you should practice every day:

  • Prefer natural, foaming skincare products with rich textures that are more gentle and non-abrasive to avoid irritation, dry skin and an uncomfortable feeling after washing;

  • Avoid too hot and too frequent showers in a day;

  • Perform body exfoliation once a week to remove dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin. Regular exfoliation can optimize the effect of the skin care products applied afterwards.

When Should You Moisturize Your Body?

So, it is important to provide your body's skin with a daily dose of moisture. The best time to do this is after showering. Because at this moment the skin is particularly receptive: The epidermis becomes supple due to the heat. Apply your body moisturizer tailored to your skin type while your skin is still slightly damp, so that the care can enter the epidermis better. Thus, a protective film is built up again, which keeps the water under the skin. Also remember to moisturize your skin especially after exfoliation to restore the protective barrier.
