How to use hand and body lotion effectively?

Like your face, your hands, legs and entire body parts also need special attention. Indulge yourself in a good lotion that can protect, nourish, hydrate and soothe your skin as well as nurture your senses as it covers your body. 

Applying body lotion to your skin not only to make your skin more hydrated or moisturized but also provide other benefits that are good for your skin. To make sure that your skin gets all of the benefits that your lotion has to offer, it's best to make sure that it is applied correctly.

Do you know how to put on lotion effectively so that you get the most from it and your skin absorbs all the goodness? 

Check this out..

1. Select a lotion that is suitable for your needs. Or try ÉCLAIRÉ Cellnergic Youth Intense Hand and Body Smooth Lotion.

2. Shake well the lotion container. Open the closure.

3. Pour enough lotion into your clean palm to do each body part at a time and warm by rubbing it with your palms.  Applying only enough lotion to your hands that is enough for each body part will ensure that you don't rush putting your lotion on, that you take your time and do it correctly.

4. Apply the lotion liberally to each section of your body at a time. Pay special attention to areas prone to dryness such as hands, legs, elbows, and knees. Avoid getting the lotion near your eyes, nose and mouth.

5. Start from your ankles and work your way up applying the lotion to the entire parts of your body until you reach right under your chin. Leave applying the lotion to your hands and feet until last. Instead of applying the lotion in an up and down motion, apply it in a circular motion using the palms of your hands. Apply light pressure, massaging the lotion into your skin and giving your muscles a nice massage at the same time.

6. Then apply the lotion to your hands. Make sure you massage the lotion into the palm of your hands and do all of your fingers one at a time. The lotion should also be applied to your cuticles and your wrists. Rub the lotion in until it has dried.

7. Next is your feet. Starting at the top of your foot, massage going downward toward your toes. Massage your heel in a circular motion. For the underside of your foot, massage in a circular motion applying light pressure especially to the soft spots of your feet. Do each of your toes one by one. Put socks over your feet after the lotion has completely dried so that you don't lose the lotion on your feet when you walk around. Wearing socks after applying lotion also prevents you from slipping off the tiles floor.

8. Apply and reapply the lotion as often as you like. Applying lotion right after a shower or bath will help retain more moisture.

9. Make sure the lotion is fully absorbed before putting on clothing.

10. Do not apply too much.

11. Always read and follow directions on the bottle of the body lotion for best results.

12. Always tightly close the lotion container. Store at dry place, at room temperature, out of reach of children.

13. Always read the warning notes if any.

14. Before use ÉCLAIRÉ Cellnergic product range for a first time, test your skin reaction first by applying the ÉCLAIRÉ product to small part of skin area (Avoid open wound skin areas). Follow the direction of use. If after few hours or 24 hours, there is no adverse reaction, begin using. If you experience any irritation during use, wash the skin and rinse thoroughly with water. If this skin sensitivity/irritation persists, seek medical advice.

15. Always read the label of your product container or product insert for the contents/ingredients. Check if you are allergic to any of the ingredient. Please note that if skin sensitivity occurs or sign of irritation/rash appear, consult your physician.
