How-to: get happy, nourished skin
FACT: a hydrated body is a happy body. Because when you’re hydrated, your skin is more likely to glow and radiate. However, considering our bodies gain said hydration from both the inside and the outside, keeping both ‘sides’ equally nourished sometimes seems like a tough task.
Your insides, of course, benefit from drinking water. They also remain hydrated when you eat healthy fruit and vegetables on a regular basis. But what about your outsides? You know, your skin? Are you nourishing it in the way it deserves? Have you got the goods to target different dehydration concerns for different areas? If not, don’t stress. We’ve hunted down a trio of divine products that’ll solve more than a handful of issues, and leave you with happy, healthy, luminous skin. I promise.
TO TARGET THIS: lack of skin elasticity, scars, stretchmarks and uneven skin tone
USE THIS: a lightweight treatment oil like Lanolips Lovely Lanolin Herbal Treatment Body Oil. This lightweight beautifying oil is a triple threat when it comes to nipping dehydrated skin in the bud, as it contains a fierce line-up of skin-loving ingredients. Like lanolin, which richly nourishes the skin by replenishing the skin’s natural oils; pine oil, which acts as an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent; and eucalyptus oil, which soothes and reduces any pesky skin flare-ups or rashes. And you don’t just need to apply this gem to your skin post-showering to get great benefits, either – it works wonders as a bath oil and after-sun treatment. It’s also a pregnant lady’s best friend. Seriously.
TO TARGET THIS: dry legs, arms and any other body parts on show during the warmer months
USE THIS: an all-over nourishing body balm like Lanolips Lovely Lanolin Triple Buttermilk Body Balm. It’ll give your pins and arms long-lasting hydration thanks to its milk extracts and vitamin E. Your dry skin will simply soak it up, and the soft, nourishing effect will last all day long.
TO TARGET THIS: ultra-dry elbows, lips, heels and hands
USE THIS: an intensely rich and thick ointment like Lanolips Lovely Lanolin Golden Ointment. Whether you’ve been self-tanning up a storm, spending too much time in the sun, or parking yourself in front of the air-conditioning unit, the warmer months wreak as much havoc on your skin as the cooler ones do. This super-rich ointment improves your skin’s water-binding ability, helping to maintain moisture levels as a result. It leaves a silky, protective layer on your skin, too, so you’ll not only find yourself sporting nourished, hydrated skin, but glowy skin as well.
Sidenote: feeling a little, erm, sheepish about using lanolin? Don’t be. The super-hydrating and utterly amazing lanolin in all Lanolips products is Ultra-Pure Medical Grade, and is renowned for its wound healing. So your skin is going drink it right up, and be radiant with health as a result.
