Here’s how to achieve glowing skin...
You need to understand that our body undergoes enough moisture loss and turns dry and flaky, especially in winters when the body can lose up to 25 per cent of the moisture. The knees and elbows of your body are specially dry and rough because of consistent friction that they go through. Hence, it’s necessary to mildly exfoliate and then moisturise them consistently.
Your hands and feet get dry because of exposure and too much use. This results in them becoming dry, itchy and the skin on the feet to crack. In the winters, when we usually have dry skin, we tend to get up in the morning and have a long hot shower. This further rips away the moisture from the body.
What must one look for in a body lotion?
You need to look for certain ingredients, some which pull up the water from the deeper layers of the skin to the top layer or from the environment around to the top layer. These are called humectants. Glycerin is one of the best ingredients for this purpose.
Along with glycerin-based products, another thing that you would look for is a moisture sealant, which means when there is already moisture on your skin, you need something that will protect it and not allow it to evaporate out. Petroleum Jelly is something that you should use for this purpose.
You should also look for ingredients that moisturise your skin, make the cream easy to spread to the larger body areas. Something like Dimethicone truly helps in keeping your skin moisturised. So you need to ensure that you use them liberally in good quantities to spread them in different parts of your body. This will give you good skin all through the year. We’ve put our trust in the Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Lotion that’s formulated with glycerin, pure soya extracts and stratys-3 multi-layer moisture. Enriched with micro-droplets of Vaseline jelly, this lotion is deeply moisturising on the skin giving you soft, supple skin.
