You’ve found the perfect body wash, and you know exfoliating helps your skin look and feel vital, but what about your body moisturiser?
Just like the moisturiser you use on your face, the one you use on your body to keep skin smooth and supple needs to be tailored to your skin.
Cheap moisturisers not suited to your skin type can end up clogging your skin’s pores, ultimately even leading to breakouts. Too many of these products are heavy and slick on the skin – it can be five minutes or more before you feel able to put on clothes after applying it liberally following a shower!
A moisturiser’s main purpose will be to restore critical hydration to parched skin. Think especially of your feet and hands, elbows and heels which, after the face, take the brunt of environmental and physical activity.
A good moisturiser will complement the effects of your body wash and body scrub. Its fragrance, if it has one, should be natural and capable of giving you an emotional lift at the start of the day.
All skin types need moisture, it’s just that the needs of dry skin versus oily skin will be very different. If you’re unsure, consult the beauty experts at Time of Life for advice on products to suit you.
