    Body Moisturiser - Australia

    Soften and smooth all over with a good body moisturiser. The best body moisturisers should soothe and deeply hydrate without a residual feeling of greasiness.

    Why is it important to moisturise your body?

    Moisturising helps maintain the skin's hydration levels, prevents dryness, and protects against environmental factors. It can also improve skin texture, reduce flakiness, and provide a protective barrier to keep the skin healthy and supple. Body moisturisers can help reduce the appearance of ageing by keeping the skin hydrated, improving elasticity, and maintaining the skin’s barrier function. 

    How often should I moisturise my body?

    For best results, it's recommended to moisturise your body at least once daily, ideally after showering or bathing when your skin is still slightly damp. This helps lock in moisture and keeps your skin hydrated throughout the day. Otherwise, apply moisturiser as required - the way your skin feels is the best indication of what it needs! 

    What ingredients should I look for in a good body moisturiser?

    Look for body moisturisers that contain:

    • Hyaluronic Acid: Attracts and retains moisture.

    • Glycerin: Helps draw moisture into the skin.

    • Ceramides: Strengthen the skin's barrier and retain hydration.

    • Shea Butter: Provides intense hydration and is rich in vitamins.

    • Aloe Vera: Soothes and moisturises the skin.

    Are there different types of body moisturisers for different skin types?

    Yes, body moisturisers are formulated to cater to various skin types:

    • For dry skin: Choose thicker creams or ointments with rich, hydrating ingredients like shea butter or ceramides.

    • For oily skin: Opt for lightweight, non-comedogenic lotions or gels that won't clog pores.

    • For sensitive skin: Use fragrance-free and hypoallergenic formulas with soothing ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile.

    Can body moisturisers help with skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis?

    Yes, certain body moisturisers are formulated to help manage skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Look for products labelled for sensitive skin.

    How can I choose the right body moisturiser for my skin type?

    To choose the right body moisturiser:

    • Identify your skin type: Determine if your skin is dry, oily, normal, combination, or sensitive.

    • Read labels: Look for moisturisers formulated for your specific skin type.

    • Consider any skin conditions: If you have eczema, psoriasis, or other conditions, choose products specifically designed to address those issues.

    • Patch test: Test a small amount of the product on your skin before applying it all over to ensure you don’t have an adverse reaction.

    Can I use body moisturiser on my face?

    It’s generally best to use products formulated specifically for the face due to its more delicate skin.
