Our skin is the largest bodily organ. But regrettably, it’s often the first to be neglected. Aside from consuming nutrient-packed foods and drinking water, you can show love to your skin by applying lotion.
“When choosing a lotion, one should look for those infused with ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid and importantly free of petrolatum,” says Dr. Foitl, a NYC dermatologist and head of AQUATION’s Expert Panel. “Such lotions not only hydrate the skin but form a protective shield and prevent water loss through the skin.”
For the summer, the dermatologist suggests applying lotions with SPF (either infused or paired with) every 3-4 hours or at least twice a day.
“Body lotions are designed to actually penetrate the skin, leaving it softer, more hydrated and younger looking,” Foil instructs.
