Why Your Face Deserves More Than Body Lotion
While it may seem convenient to use the same lotion for both your face and body, trust me, it's a skincare no-no! Let me explain why.
Surprisingly, body lotions can actually be drying and irritating to your thinner and more delicate facial skin. Your body’s skin is thicker and tougher, so companies can get away with putting fragrances and cheaper ingredients into body lotions. Additionally, the exposure your face encounters on a daily basis due to nature’s elements is greater than the rest of your body. So, a face moisturizer designed specifically to address the needs of this delicate first-impression-maker is important!
Lastly, know that your face moisturizer can definitely double as a body lotion substitute because of it’s key focus of caring for this more delicate part of your body. So, the next time you're in the market for face care products, skip the "body lotion" aisle and head straight to the "face lotion/moisturizer" section. Your skin will thank you for it!
