Body Wash and Lotions
It may be shameful but I am not blessed with a perfect skin. Its dry and flaky and sometimes itchy whenever I use products that are completely not compatible with my skin type. I've tried different brands, even those sold by the dermatologists. They said I must use all naturals with certain ingredients. But this makes me envious of others who are able to use products that graces shops around the metro. So I tried and tested some products and finally able to find those that compliments my skin.
For my bath essential, I love St Ives Body Wash Collagen Elastin. It leaves my skin soft and smooth after washing. Before I buy products, I usually read the label. I don't just go for the scent and the brand, I check if its suited on my skin and the kind of ingredients. This body wash is said to suit over dry skin. Plus, this body wash helps lighten the stretch marks I have.Whenever I ran out of this body wash, I use Palmolive Soap in Shea Butter. It gives the same smooth, soft like a velvet feeling on my skin. Shea butter is said to condition and soften the skin. I use Ponds Antibacterial Facial Wash for my face especially when pimples tend to develop.
After washing, I always lather lotion to lock in moisture. My bet is the Jergens Skin Smoothing lotion. It has exfoliating beads and natural fruit acid formula. Using this lotion, my dry flaky skin becomes smooth and polished. And I only need to use this once a day for it for it moisturizes me in 24 hours. Sometimes, I use the Jergens Ultra Healing Moisturizer that heals and softens the rough part of my skin particularly on my feet. This brand of lotion actually healed my swollen foot.
On my face, of course moisturizing it is important. However, my face has a combination of dry and oily part. I use Celeteque Facial Moisturizer because it is water-based and oil-free. So for oily part, it does not get too oily and for the dry area, it gets just the right amount of moisturizer. Then my favorite Ponds Pinkish White Glow Lightening Cream that nourishes my skin and makes it feel smooth and look fairer all day. For my face powder, I love the smooth finish of Maybelline Shine Free Oil Control Powder. It keeps my skin fresh and oil-free for hours so I feel fresh and clean for hours, too.
