Why it is important to use body lotion/cream after bathing

  1. Using body lotion helps to stay hydrated and soft. Body lotions contain moisture agents that keep the skin soft and supple.
  2. Using body lotion slows signs of aging, which include wrinkles and dryness. Dryness causes itching and discomfort.
  3. Using good body creams and lotions helps cover blemishes and reduce the black spots that appear because of pimples and acne.
  4. Body lotions help keep the skin healthy against disorders like psoriasis, hives, rosacea, etc.
  5. It is an inexpensive way to pamper yourself.

How to maintain a healthy skin

  1. Bath twice a day. Taking a bath day and night helps eliminate unwanted germs on the skin and keeps it healthy and clean. It keeps your skin thirsty and makes way for your body lotion to work on your skin. It even helps to improve your mood and reduces fatigue after a long day’s work.
  2. Use sunscreen. The sun causes damage to your skin. Believe it or not and sunscreen prevents that. It blocks ultraviolet light to prevent sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging. Regular use of sunscreen can also prevent hyperpigmentation.
  3. Get enough sleep. Research has shown that collagen production and cell turnover increase at night, so goodnight’s sleep helps these cells work better. When you don’t get enough sleep at night, you will develop saggy skin with dark circles, and oh, you look tired all the time.
  4. Research has also shown that fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants that help protect the skin from internal and external damage. Hence it is important to consume a lot of fruits and vegetables to maintain healthy skin. You can even purchase capsules and gummies that contain multivitamins in place of fruits. Avoiding some foods help to keep healthy skin and encourages normal period flow because hormonal imbalance plays a significant role in maintaining healthy skin.
  5. Drink more fluids.


Nothing beats healthy and glowing skin. Your confidence is at its peak, and you wear any dress you want to wear without feeling insecure. You look good and feel good. They say that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, but you can also feel beautiful if you have perfect skin. Avoid dark patches, hyperpigmentation, dry skin, and uneven skin tone today by using the lotion that best suits you and following a strict skincare routine.
