Hydration is crucial for maintaining soft skin. However, our skin is constantly exposed to a variety of internal and external aggressors that could potentially dry it out and make it sensitive. Of course, some people naturally have sensitive skin: dryness is not always the sole culprit. Therefore, it is important to hydrate and nourish the skin to strengthen the hydrolipidic film that acts as a barrier against water loss and external aggressions (UV, pollution, etc...). Fortunately, there are treatments available to alleviate these dry areas. Let's delve deeper.
Which cream should be used for the body?
How to choose a body cream?
Just like the skin on our face, the skin on our body also endures various daily aggressions:
Friction from clothing;
Similarly, when you take a shower, the cleanser can dry out the skin by reducing or destroying the hydro-lipid barrier. To protect it, do not neglect its hydration. In the event of poor hydration, the skin is prone to itching, tightness and becomes dry and rough. To give it radiance and restore its suppleness, you should therefore use a cream suitable for body skin. Body care should provide hydration. They should also allow the horny layer to retain water and lipids to form a protective barrier. When choosing a body cream, take into account your skin type: oily or dry, dehydrated or atopic, sensitive, etc...
Which body care should be chosen according to your skin type?
All skin types require moisturising care, particularly those frequently exposed to the sun, temperature fluctuations, pollution, etc... However, to hydrate and nourish the skin, we have a multitude of texture options, depending on the skin type:
Body milk: It has a lighter and more fluid texture than other treatments. It is thus absorbed more quickly by the skin, without leaving a greasy film on the skin's surface. It is perfect for normal to oily skin.
The body cream: It is more creamy and slightly more nourishing than body milk. Ideal for daily care for normal to dry skin, it effectively hydrates the skin.
Body Butter: This type of skincare is much richer than body milk or cream. With a thicker and oilier consistency, it leaves an oily film on the skin. It is thus more commonly used as a restorative treatment and is therefore perfect for extremely dry and damaged skin to deeply nourish and repair it.
Body Oil: Rich in essential fatty acids, oils are known for their moisturising, antioxidant, and soothing properties. They are perfect for dry to very dry skin, which have an epidermis that feels tight and peels.
Description of the body moisturising cream.
Sensitive skin in certain areas, which is dry and irritated, is often the result of dehydration. When the skin is dehydrated, it becomes vulnerable and is affected by various external aggressions. In this case, it is appropriate to opt for a body moisturising treatment. This will help to replenish the hydrolipidic film in order to limit water loss but also to resist external aggressions.
The body moisturising cream from Typology is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It has a light and non-greasy texture. The moisturising cream contains over 10 active ingredients for the body, including:
Organic coconut oil: It deeply nourishes and hydrates the skin, while leaving a soft touch to the skin;
Vegetable Glycerin: By capturing the moisture in the air, it promotes superficial hydration of the skin;
Pentylene Glycol: This ingredient possesses hydrating properties.
This body moisturising cream thus ticks all the boxes: it is capable of deeply nourishing and hydrating the epidermis due to the presence of fatty acids from vegetable oil, leaving the skin supple and soft without a greasy and sticky finish on the skin's surface, while being suitable for all skin types.
How to properly apply your body moisturiser?
To maintain supple and soft skin, make it a habit to moisturise one to two times a day after showering. Take a generous amount of cream in the palm of your hand, warm the product by rubbing your palms together, then gently massage your entire body until the cream is absorbed, always moving from bottom to top. Pay particular attention to areas that tend to be drier, such as the legs due to hair removal, and also the elbows. On the rounded parts of the body like the stomach, buttocks and chest, perform circular movements. These massages not only allow for better absorption of the product into the skin but also stimulate blood circulation.
In order for the cream to penetrate the skin more easily and optimise hydration, it is necessary to exfoliate beforehand to remove all dead skin cells. To do this, use a grainy scrub and massage the body in circular motions, focusing on slightly thicker areas such as the heels and elbows. A body care duo has been created, where you can find the body moisturising cream with 10 ingredients and the toning body scrub with coffee macerate.
