How To Apply Body Cream?

The skin is an independent organ that performs numerous functions. It wraps around the body and protects the organism from external influences. A dehydrated and dry skin has difficulties in performing its tasks correctly. Therefore, it is important to take care of it by applying cream or lotion to the body regularly. But how do I apply my cream correctly? Focus.

Why Should You Apply Cream to Your Body?

An oily film covers the surface of the epidermis to protect it from external influences. Because of pollution, friction, change of seasons, etc., the skin is constantly put to the test. In addition to this protective barrier, the hydrolipidic film makes the skin less permeable, thus helping it to maintain its moisture content. Dehydrated skin also leads to wrinkling and loss of elasticity.

When you shower, chalky water and/or the skin care product you use promotes the removal of the hydrolipid film. As a result, after bathing, your skin is dry, rough and taut in some places. For this reason, it is necessary to moisturize it with a suitable cream after the drying step. In fact, the use of a moisturizer will strengthen the protective shield function of the skin by supporting the hydrolipidic film. The cream will also limit the natural evaporation of water, preventing your body from drying out. Result: your skin will be comfortable, supple, soft and radiant again.

What Cream Should You Use on Your Body?

Regardless of your skin's texture, your skin needs care, especially if it is frequently exposed to temperature changes, pollution, wind, etc. So, when choosing a cream, make sure that you take into account your skin type. If you have normal, combination or oily skin, you should choose a body lotion with a light, fluid texture. On the other hand, if you have dry skin, you should rather prefer a nourishing balm. It is important to choose a cream that is tailored to your needs in order to take the best care of your body. Our moisturizing body cream hydrates all skin types, even sensitive skin. Although it consists of only 10 ingredients, it deeply nourishes the epidermis thanks to its high content of unsaturated fatty acids in coconut oil. The vegetable glycerin moisturizes the skin, thus protecting it from moisture loss. The skin remains soft and supple, avoiding unpleasant skin sensations and tightness.

The Correct Steps in Applying Body Cream

For the best effect of the moisturizer, it is important to exfoliate your skin beforehand once or twice a week to get rid of all dead skin cells, paying special attention to the thicker areas (heels, knees and elbows). After washing, take a hazelnut-sized amount of body cream in your hand (the amount is enough to moisturize every part of your body) and warm it between your hands. Smooth the product more gently over your clean, slightly damp body until the cream is completely absorbed.

Start with the lower half of your body and gradually work your way up. You should start at the feet and work your way up from the ankles to the knees and from the thighs to the buttocks in upward motions. For the arms, you should work your way up from the back of your hands to your shoulders. When you reach the abdomen, buttocks or chest, make more gentle circular motions. Pay special attention to areas of the body that tend to be drier, such as the legs due to repeated hair removal and shaving, the knees, feet and elbows. This self-massage while applying your care will promote rapid absorption of the product and stimulate blood microcirculation.
