How to choose the right moisturizer for your skin

To protect the skin’s balance, a moisturising body cream should also repair the skin barrier.
What do we mean by that?
It should help the skin to rebuild its natural defences.
It will do this if it contains:

These are the ingredients that activate the emollient’s formula, assisting the repair of the skin barrier by restoring epidermal lipids and enabling the rebalancing of the skin barrier.

Moreover, to not affect the skin’s balance, a good moisturising body cream shouldn’t contain:

  • Irritant or allergenic preservatives
  • Fragrance allergens
  • Alcohol


When and how to apply moisturizing body creams

How you apply them makes all the difference!
It’s important to integrate the application of the moisturising body cream into your daily routine and apply it in the correct way.

When should you apply it?
Between 2 to 4 times a day, depending on how dry the skin is. After a shower, it’s best to do it when your skin is still wet.

 How should you apply it?

  • Wash your hands and massage the cream onto your palm before applying it
  • Apply a thin layer: the amount of cream that fits onto a fingertip should cover an area equal to two adult hand palms.
  • Apply the cream gently and without rubbing it. Follow the direction of hair growth and apply it in all regions of the body.

Remember that the entire body needs moisturisation, but some regions tend to be drier. Pay attention to:

  • Legs
  • Elbows
  • Knees
  • Hands
