Three tips from a cosmetologist

.

Cosmetologist Natalia Stępa has some tips for you on how to take care of your body's skin and how to keep it firm and glowing for years to come.

How to enhance the effects of a lotion?

.

Every few days, do a skin scrub during your bath. This removes the stratum corneum, which allows the lotion to absorb into the skin more effectively. For a better effect, you can apply the lotion to the still slightly exfoliated skin after bathing. Carrying out a massage will make it softer and more soothed, advises Natalia Stępa.

.
.

Are you looking forward to a relaxing scrub today? Remember that you can make one at home using a mixture of, for example, coconut oil, lemon juice and ground coffee.

What to look out for when buying lotion?

.

In your search for the lotion you want, it is worth checking that the product has been clinically and dermatologically tested. This indicates the high quality of the product and its safety for the skin. 

A lotion is designed to moisturise the skin, so the key active ingredients it should contain are:

.
  • plant oils and butters,
  • .
  • microbiome-supporting ingredients, e.g. glycerine, ceramides, urea,
  • .
  • antioxidants, e.g. green tea,coenzyme Q10.

Engredients we should avoid are:

.
    .
  • parabens,
  • .
  • silicones,
  • .
  • strong detergents SLS, ELES,
  • .
  • mineral oils,
  • .
  • paraffins,
  • .
  • phthalates,
  • .
  • perfume additives,
  • .

The price is also important. Is there a cheap, good moisturising lotion? Yes! This is, for example, a high-quality universal lotion Eloderm 3-6-9. It comes in a large 400 ml pack. It is very efficient and is praised by many users.

.

skin care - useful tips

.

Healthy, firm skin with naturally beautiful colour can be achieved with a few effective skincare practices. Introduce at least one of them today!

  1. Eat a variety of foods. Provide essential nutrients from a rich meal - your body will be healthy and your skin will be in good shape.
  2. Drink water. Drinking water regularly has a huge impact on how your body functions and how your skin looks on your face and body. You are probably not drinking enough.
  3. Regularly care for your skin. Try dry brushing, buy a good quality body cosmetic and massage yourself to improve circulation.
  4. Sleep and rest. Slow down, make time for recovery and sleep hygiene. Fatigue takes its toll on your health and skin.

FAQ

.
What is the best body lotion?.

The best body lotion should have a simple formulation with strong moisturising and lubricating properties to nourish the skin and provide it with needed ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, oils. Recommended lotions include Avène XeraCalm A.D., La Roche Posay Lipikar Baume and Dermedic Citatopy.

. Is it worth using a body lotion?.

Yes, it is worth using body lotion because of its benefits for the skin. Lotion moisturises, nourishes and protects the skin from harmful external factors, keeping it smooth and soft. It prevents keratosis of the epidermis, stretch marks and leaves it pleasant to the touch.

. Should the body be lotioned?.

Yes, the body should be lotioned regularly especially after a bath or shower when the skin is most likely to absorb nutrients. This will prevent dryness, irritation and keratinisation of the skin, as well as stretch marks or loss of moisture.

. What is better a body cream or a body lotion?.

Both body cream and body lotion have similar properties and tasks, but differ mainly in consistency. A cream is light and absorbs more quickly, making it good for normal skin. The lotion is thicker and sticks longer, which means it keeps the skin moisturised longer and is better for dry skin.

. What is a good moisturising lotion?.

A good moisturising lotion is Sebamed body lotion with 10% urea. The lotion has many positive reviews from users who praise the product for its quick moisturising effect, reduction of skin dryness and regenerative properties.

. Which body lotion to choose?.

Choose a body lotion that meets the individual needs of the skin. For dry skin, it is advisable to choose a lotion with a thicker consistency that contains moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin or shea butter. For sensitive skin, it is advisable to choose a lotion with minimal chemical ingredients and fragrances.

. Which lotions are best for sensitive skin?.

The best lotions for sensitive skin contain minimal chemical ingredients, no alcohol and no artificial fragrances. Natural lotions, such as those based on coconut oil, shea butter or aloe vera, are usually good choices for sensitive skin.
