The skin on the body is just as important as the skin on the face and therefore deserves the same amount of care and attention. Daily use of a good body wash and lotion is essential to maintaining healthy, conditioned skin.
Applying body lotion to slightly damp skin will help retain moisture. For best results, apply body lotion just after a bath or shower.
Hot water robs skin of moisture. It is best to shower in lukewarm water or try to keep showers brief in order to avoid over-drying the skin.
Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily to help hydrate the skin from the inside out.
