So you still hate lotion even as a grown-up? We totally understand. With weather like ours, it’s impossible to leave the house covered in lotion without feeling like a sticky mess. Tiis ganda nga naman. But the truth is, your skin still needs extra help to keep it moisturized.
Here, we present to you some alternatives to regular lotions that will leave you with smooth, supple skin sans the sticky feeling:
1. In-shower moisturizer.
Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturizer, P109/100mL, P234/250mL, Watsons.
Cut down your beauty routine by substituting regular lotion with a moisturizer that you can use in the shower. Cleanse your body with your soap or body wash. Rinse it off. Then reach for Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturizer and apply it all over your skin. Let it set for a while and then rinse. You’ll be left with super soft skin afterwards, promise.
2. Skin conditioner.
Kracie Natululu Skin Conditioner, P495.00, Beauty Bar.
Another alternative to lotion are skin conditioners, which look and feel like regular water, like Kracie Natululu. These plant-based skin conditioners are fragrance-free, mineral oil-free, coloring-free, and are even safe to use on your face. To use it, pour some of the product out of the bottle and press it against your skin.
3. Spray it on.
St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions, P325.00, Landmark;
Palmer’s Rapidspray, P495, Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
Yes, get excited! Because lotions come in aerosol form now! After stepping out of the shower, pat your skin dry and spray on the lotion—it feels super nice and light.
