1. Say no to lotions that have alcohol in the ingredient listing. An article in Self magazine breaks down the good, the bad and the ugly for us when it comes to alcohol and our skin products. Solvent alcohols like isopropyl, isopropanol or denatured alcohol can actually be drying on your skin. They can strip the skin of natural oils and makes your skin dehydrated - just like what alcohol does to our bodies. Lesson learned - avoid alcohol in lotion. ✅
2. Look for lotions that have moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and aloe. Good news, our lotions have all 3 of these ingredients! 🙌
3. Turn down your hot water! The hotter the water, the more it can dehydrate your skin. If you have dry skin, try using lukewarm water to bathe instead of scorching hot water. 🛁 According to WebMD, you should also limit your showers to 10 minutes max.
4. Apply your lotion right after you shower, while your skin is still a little damp. 🚿 Dr. Michael Kaminer, a board certified dermatologist and consultant for Skincare.com says, “Your skin has the most moisture when it’s wet and most moisturizers work best when skin is already hydrated."
