Why should you moisturise your skin?
Moisturising the skin on your face is now commonplace, but moisturising your body is just as important. The skin on your body is just as fragile and should receive the same treatment to avoid the discomfort of dry skin and reveal its beauty.
Dry skin occurs when the natural protective barrier, called the hydrolipid film, is damaged. By respecting the skin on your body, you take care of this precious layer and maintain its moisture level. For dry skin, regular use of a moisturising and repairing skin care product can help keep the skin soft, supple and hydrated.
Signs of dry skin: identify your body's moisture needs
Dry skin can cause you to feel tight and itchy, leading to physical discomfort. Your skin may feel dull and lacklustre. You may also notice a cracking sensation, especially on your elbows, knees and hands. When dehydrated, your skin can be more sensitive and easily irritated, which can cause redness and irritation. It becomes thinner and more vulnerable to damage from external factors. When you notice signs of moisture deficiency, it is necessary to understand the causes in order to find the right moisturising, nourishing and repairing skin care product(s) for your body's skin condition.
Causes of dry skin: when to use a moisturiser for the body?
Dry skin lacking moisture can be caused by :
- lack of moisture: if the skin does not receive enough moisture and nutrition, it can become dry and flaky;
- Dry climate: with wind, pollution or cold, dry climate can remove moisture from your skin and make it dry;
- Hot baths and long showers: hot baths and long showers can remove the skin's natural oil, causing it to dry out;
- Use of harsh products: Harsh cleaning products, such as alcohol-based soaps, can dry out your skin by removing its natural hydrolipidic film;
- Age: with age, the production of sebum, the skin's natural oil, can slow down and lead to dry skin;
- Skin conditions: certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema, can cause dry skin.
There are various moisturising products available to care for your skin and provide the moisture it needs.
Moisturising body care products for all skin types
Moisturising body care is an essential part of your beauty routine. Make sure you choose your product according to your skin type: oily, combination, dry or normal.
Moisturising body lotion
A body moisturiser is a fluid, easy-to-spread product that penetrates the skin quickly. It is often used to quickly moisturise the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
Moisturising and repairing body lotion
A moisturising body lotion is a body care product that moisturises and nourishes the skin by covering it with a thin layer of moisturising and nourishing substances. Moisturising milk is often used to help treat dry, dehydrated skin by providing extra moisture and strengthening the skin's hydrolipidic film. A moisturiser may contain nourishing ingredients such as fatty acids, glycerides and plant extracts to strengthen the skin barrier and prevent water loss.
Moisturising body cream
A body or hand moisturiser is a thicker, more nourishing product than a lotion that can help deeply moisturise the skin. It is often used to treat dry and chapped areas of the body.
Moisturising and nourishing body oil
A moisturising body oil is a skin care product that nourishes the skin by providing a source of moisture and nutrients. Moisturising oils may contain different types of vegetable oils, such as olive oil, jojoba oil or coconut oil, as well as other ingredients to enhance skin hydration. Oils can be rich in nutrients and antioxidants, which can help protect the skin from the damage of pollution and weather variations.
Moisturising body balm or butter
A moisturising body balm or butter is a nourishing product that aims to moisturise and protect the skin. It is usually formulated with nourishing ingredients such as vegetable oils and butters, such as shea butter, to help restore the skin's elasticity and softness.
Moisturising body gel or jelly
Moisturising body gels have a light, fresh consistency that penetrates the skin quickly. They may contain moisturising ingredients such as aloe vera to help keep the skin hydrated. Because of their fluid texture, moisturising gels are often used for oily and combination skin.
Apply your body moisturiser correctly to enjoy its benefits
To provide complete nutrition and a comforting moisture envelope for dry skin, create a moisturising and personalised beauty routine.
When should I apply a body moisturiser?
It's best to apply a body moisturiser after your shower or bath. This is when your skin best absorbs the moisturizers in the product. Using a body moisturiser on a daily basis will keep your skin hydrated and nourished at all times. Choose a moisturising and nourishing product that is suitable for your skin type and take into account the weather conditions: skin may need an extra level of hydration in winter or dry weather. You can also moisturise your skin while you shower! Use a superfatted soap or shower oil that foams on contact with water.
How do I apply a moisturiser to my body?
Clean your skin with a mild soap to make it perfectly clean and remove sweat and product residues. Gently dry your skin with a soft towel. Take a small amount of your body moisturizer in the palm of your hand. Apply the moisturizer to your skin, gently massaging it into your skin. Be sure to cover all areas of your body that need moisturizing and focus on areas that need extra hydration such as your heels or elbows. Depending on the moisturiser you use, allow your skin to fully absorb the product before getting dressed.
What is the best moisturizer for the body?
Nourishing cream, body gel, repairing milk: there are many body products with moisturising action and varying textures. The most moisturising body product is the one that best suits the specificities of your skin. The skin of the body can be dry, sensitive or even atopic. In this case, the needs are slightly different. If your skin is reactive, choose formulas based on ingredients of natural origin. They will limit the risk of allergy. Similarly, for very dry skin, prefer rich textures, such as a smooth milk, body butter or thick cream.
