How much body lotion should you use? Body lotion is light and sinks into skin quickly making it a good choice for daytime use. It works by replenishing your skins natural oils to keep it hydrated and preventing dryness. Moisturizers work best when applied to damp skin – so apply after bathing. Starting with one pump (about the size of a quarter) and use both hands to massage it into the skin. Use more as needed.
Which body lotion is best for dry or very dry skin? The Citrus Hand & Body lotion is a lightweight moisturizer that is good for dry skin. However, if your skin is extremely dry – you may prefer the richer Frankincense & Orange body cream, which has a base of super-moisturizing unrefined Shea Butter. If your skin is also sensitive (or you prefer unscented products), you might like Mokosh Pure Face & Body Cream best.
Can I use the Citrus Hand & Body body lotion of my face? We recommend using one of our face creams or face oils on your face. Our face products are filled with skin balancing, skin-restoring & skin-replenishing ingredients to protect and nourish your skin and target your specific facial needs like hyper-pigmentation, lines & wrinkles and even balance oily skin. If you prefer one product for both your face and body, we recommend Mokosh Pure Face & Body Cream – a restorative cream that is light enough for your face.
What is the difference between body cream and body lotion? Body creams are typically heavier than body lotions. They provide a better protective barrier on your skin, which helps reduce more moisture loss from your skin than lotion can. Skin feels softer, smoother longer. The downside is creams can feel a little greasier when you apply them and take a little longer to absorb completely.
Body lotions usually have water as the first ingredient. For this reason they are not as greasy and absorb more quickly. Lotion is not as effective and works best on skin that is not excessively dry.
