With the rise of accessible and affordable skincare products, we’re paying more and more attention to the needs of our skin. Whether it’s to get flawless ‘glass skin’ like our favourite K-Drama stars, or looking to improve the appearance or texture of your skin, we like to think we’re putting our best face forward when it comes to skincare. But what about our body? Most people don’t invest as heavily in body moisturisers or lotions, but the truth is, your skin from the neck down needs a little tender love and care too. Here are 5 reasons why you need to start moisturising your body too.
1. You have dry skin or a condition that causes dry skin.
Everyone’s skin is different, but dry skin conditions most obviously manifests itself on your face. But if your skin is dry there, it’s most likely dry everywhere else too. Especially if you have extra dry skin. Want to make sure the skin on your body is getting the best care? We recommend Rosken Dry Skin Lotion, one of the best body lotions for normal to dry skin.
2. You work in an air-conditioned environment.
There’s a lot to be worried about sitting in the dry environment of an air-conditioned room, even if it does provide comfort and relief from the hot weather outside. But did you know that air-conditioned environments can dry out your skin? Especially your hands! It’s important that you bring moisturiser in your bag and apply the product consistently to protect your skin. We recommend the ultra nourishing Rosken Dry Skin Cream, which comes in a portable 25ml pack, making it perfect for a hand cream or body cream on the go!
3. You’re exposed to sun and environmental pollutants.
While sunscreen may protect you from harmful UV rays, long-term exposure to sunlight and pollutants can dry out and damage your skin. If you have a condition like eczema, this may also make irritation much worse on your skin. If your skin is sensitive to sunlight or environmental changes, we recommend the Rosken Sensitive Skin Cream, which can be used as a body moisturiser that offers nourishment and protection, thanks to its lack of harsh chemicals, making it safe to use on sensitive skin.
4. You like taking hot showers.
While warm or hot showers are the perfect end to a long, stressful day (and you won’t find any arguments from us about this), did you know that it’s one of the main causes of dry and cracked heels? How many of us remember to apply moisturising soaps or products to the heels of our feet? Admittedly, for carrying us everywhere, we sure overlook our feet quite a bit. Rosken Feet and Heel Balm can help repair those painful cracks and flaky, scaly skin. Put your best moisturised foot forward with this effective balm!
5. Your soaps or shampoos contain harsh chemicals.
While our favourite bath products help keep us safe from germs and bacteria (and smell so very nice), did you know that some products contain ingredients that strip away the natural moisture in your skin? Some products also work their best when paired with a body cream or body moisturiser after showering. Rosken Dry Skin Wash not only works for the face, but can also be used for the body. Its gentle, clinically-proven formula helps keep your moisture level balanced, but also nourishes your skin with Vitamin E that helps repair it too. And there you have it. 5 reasons why you should moisturise your body like, right now. Will you incorporate body moisturiser in your daily routine? Tell us!
