Today, let's discuss body skin. If your body skin is anything like mine, then chances are it is dry and itchy. In case you hadn't noticed, the body doesn't make enough sebum for the body skin the same way the face does and it needs more moisture to help compensate for this issue. Speaking for myself, my body skin is extremely dry and water exposure only compounds the problem. Which means I need to hydrate and moisturize my skin after showering. After swimming this is even especially worse because chlorine causes my skin to become extremely itchy and dry.
Did you ever wonder why some parts of your body are drier than others? It is because of sebaceous glands! Sebaceous glands are microscopic organs in the skin (connected to the hair follicles) that produce sebum, an oily substance made of fatty acids, sugars, waxes, and other natural chemicals that coat, moisturize, and protect your skin. Along with ceramides, they form a protective barrier against water evaporation and help protect the body against environmental damage. Sebum helps to protect the natural moisture barrier of the skin. Sebaceous glands cover a vast majority of the entire body, but are heavily distributed on the scalp and face. Smoother surfaces like the soles of the feet and the palms of the hand have fewer glands which is why we tend to be drier in those parts of the body. Since the body in general has less developed sebaceous glands than the face, it requires more moisturization.
I have found plenty of body lotions that help my dry, itchy skin but there is one in particular I really like that does an excellent job of hydrating and moisturizing my skin. It is Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Body Lotion. This lotion sinks right into my dry skin and provides deep moisture that is needed to help keep skin in healthy shape. Soothing on the skin, packed with 5 types of ceramides and 5 types of hyaluronic acid, it gives long-lasting hydration for moisturized skin. Lightweight, hypoallergenic and non-sticky, the formula quickly absorbs into skin so you can easily wear it under clothing. Containing Line Scatter Technology, a 3-step circulation system that works to generate fine particles and increase ceramide content for improved skin absorption to maintain the flow of moisture within the skin. That is a fancy way of saying that the formula has smaller molecules and increases the ceramide content so that the skin absorbs the lotion better, and keeps the moisture flowing. The 5-Cera Complex and 5 Hyaluronic Acid Complex work together to boost collagen, keeping skin firm, strong and youthful looking. Hyaluronic acid pulls water from the atmosphere to hydrate the top layers of the skin and help it retain moisture, while ceramides help to strengthen the natural skin barrier and prevent trans-epidermal water loss. All skin types can use this body lotion, even sensitive skin, but it is ideal for dry skin as it provides long-lasting hydration.
Since this lotion contains 5 different types of ceramides and 5 different types of hyaluronic acid, it is perfect for the driest of skins, like mine. It also contains glycerin, my favorite humectant that penetrates past the epidermis into the dermis of the skin. Yet this lotion is still extremely lightweight and has a great feel on the skin. The ceramides are high on he list of ingredients, meaning that they are likely greater than the 1% threshold of ingredient percentages. This is definitely a good thing. Replenishing lost ceramides is sublimely helpful in repairing dry skin. I would honestly recommend this product for any body skin type, as it is so lightweight and replaces lost ceramides and hydration. The price is a little steep, I will grant you that. Currently it is selling for $5 below its original price of $25.00 for $20.00 per tube.
