LOTION: is it part of your beauty regiment?

It's a given... after bathing, lotion comes next. I felt naked when I don't put lotion to my skin after taking a bath/shower. It makes me feel good. I don't know about other people, but lotion is a staple for me. It's my body's nutrients. I don't have a particular favorite brand. I love to try all in different scents and color. And I know that lotion is not a girly stuff. My brothers are lotion guys too. And with the recent awareness for skin cancer a lot of people are using lotion (the ones with SPF value) to protect them from the disease. So what are we waiting for? Let's moisturized!

Yes, lotion is a part of my beauty regimen. I love putting on lotion especially during cold seasons. When it's summer, I put it on during evenings I hate the sticky feeling because of the humid weather. Lotion mosturizes, smoothens, prevents dryness and early aging of the skin. I I'm not also particular with brands but I like lotions with mild scents and SPF.

Of course, we need to keep your skin younger looking all the time. It is one of our assets.

I put lotion almost everyday in the car when my husbands gonna drive me to work. I have little time to do it at home so the little time I spend on the car I do it putting lotion.

Very creative. Of course, when you have little time at hand you need to do something about it.

Its definitely a part of my beauty regimen. After taking a bath or shower, I apply lotion to almost part of my body. If I feel my a part of my skin is dry within the day, I apply lotion immediately. Sometimes I also apply lotion before I sleep. Its a beauty regimen that I cant live without in a day. I actually bring with me all the time a small size of my lotion. When I was in the Philippines I was so chosy with the brand. I chose a lotion that lasted for a long time and make my skin smooth throughout the day. The scent just came next in choosing my lotion. Since I am in a country at present that's very cold, I tend to apply whenever I have the chance to.

Same with me, I don't care anymore what brand I use as long as I get moisturized.

I don't moisturize my body. I actually let the shower gel I use do that for me. It has moisturizers in it. No SPF but, I also don't spend much time outside at all. If I do spend time out in the sun, then I do you an SPF. But, I do use hand lotion religiously. I can't stand not using it. I use it after each and every time that I wash my hands, after I shower, and before bed. I just can't get into the routine of lotioning up my entire body after I shower.

I see, well, sometimes people do it out of habit and no problem about that. It's your skin and you know how to care for it. I use a lot of hand lotion too and another lotion for my feet alone. and a different one for my body.

Lotion is definitely part of my routine after getting out the shower. I also have to put on my face lotion as well. I hate pimples and I have to say I'm lucky that puberty didn't really hit me with them in a rage! I also like different flavours and also try different brands. I love Vanilla, Peach, Raspberry and mm Jergens Shea Butter is sooo nice!

Yes, me too I like to try a new product. I don't use the same product over and over again.

I love those lotions that I can buy from HBC called Body Recipe. Too bad I only brought 2 bottles to bring here.

Yes, it's part of my routine. My skin is dry and if I don't put on body lotion, my skin would get itchy. After shower, I would put on lotion to moisturize my skin.

Yes, I feel itchy too when I don't apply lotion after bathing.

A few years ago (when I was younger - lol) I never used lotion - I didn't need to. But now my skin is dry all of the time and I am in desperate need of lotion just to keep my skin from peeling and flaking!

Yes, younger skin seems to have a natural moisture.

Oh yes, definitely, I put on a ton after showers and put lotion on several times during the day as well. Especially after washing up with a strong soap. I am partial to Bath and Bodyworks....the Japanese Cherry Blossom is such a great scent.

Yes, definitely after a shower, and whenever I feel my skin gets dry. We should treat our skin care as taking food or water everyday. Frequent moisturizing is essential to make the skin healthy and make it look young. I don't want to grow old and looks all wrinkled. I want to look young of my age.

Yes, I believe that moisturizing helps keep our skin young and smooth. I can feel it.

Yes, washing dishes dries up the hand pretty quick.

yea, it's been a routine to apply lotion to my skin every after bath, especially to my feet.

To be honest, I still haven't met someone ( a guy in particular) who uses lotion as their everyday beauty regimen. I'm using lotion too every after bath or just even after washing the dishes. Sad to say I really have dry skin so I'm sort of dependent to lotions because it soothes me after every application...I don't feel the dryness of my skin..

I agree, I have used all kinds of lotions after showering and my wife has even had me use some of her lotions when mine were not doing the trick of softening my skin.

yeah, when it's hot outside, i try not to go out without sunblock, otherwise, i wear a jacket or hoodie eventhough it's scorching.. then, when it's cold, your skin dries easily so you need moisturizer.. so i agree, i feel naked without lotion.. and safer with it.. better moisturize rather than look like a prune..
