Dry skin and dehydrated skin can be quite annoying especially when you've got to deal with it day in day out, without being able to find the right kind of moisturizing solution that actually works. My skin got quite dry after doing my laser hair removal treatment so I needed to moisturize really well in order to maintain the skin's oils and balance out any dryness or dry patches that could cause itchiness or other skin problems. Since then, I've become obsessed with moisturizing my body after the shower, and trying out products that moisturize well (with the least amount of perfumes in them!!).
Topicrem Ultra-Moisturizing Body milk :
This is one ultra-moisturizing body lotion that I've stuck with for over 2 years, and haven't switched away because of the way my skin feels after using it. It has a beautiful soft glow, and almost feels like food to the body that every single time after applying it, my skin feels smoother and softer. Initially after laser, when my skin got super dry, I actually saw improvements in the skin's appearance and texture few days later which motivated me to use it regularly. It is a very creamy lotion but it soaks into the skin well, if you have dry skin, so there's no need to worry about the skin getting greasy incase you're heading out of the house.
Forest Essentials Velvet Silk Body cream :
Hydration and nourishment for your skin literally making it feel like velvet silk even after one application. You don't see the result as soon as you put it on, but actually after a few minutes of letting it rest on the body, giving it a beautiful satin sheen touch. I absolutely LOVE the smell of this product because you feel like you're in a spa!! Being an Ayurvedic brand, Forest Essentials does justice to its natural ingredients, some of which are almond oil, olive oil, cocoa butter, vitamin E & many more beneficial to the skin. This is my favorite body cream right now, and I'm always using it before I step out of the house. It has more of a body butter feel, but it glides on and softens beautifully, that my skin shines from a distance. (highly recommended for sensitive skin)
This is derma logically recommended for eczema and very dry skin, but there's no rule that says moisturizing a little extra is harmful. Personally, I like to use this moisturizer on days I've done laser or I need some extra moisturizing. This was only introduced to me recently, so I started trying it but didn't see much of a difference in my skin in comparison to when I was using Topicrem. The main reason being that this cream takes time to absorb into the skin and needs
to be rubbed & massaged well into the body in order to see the actual effect. Once I massaged it well in circular motions into the body, it didn't leave the body for hours, locking in moisture for a decent amount of time. So, re-moisturising after a few hours isn't needed as the skin feels soft and supple looking well-moisturized and hydrated. I like taking this me on holiday, when I don't want to keep moisturizing and have it last me for the whole day. This is great derma logical option to revive dry skin. (comes in two sizes like below)
