Wouldn’t it be easy to just slather the same lotion on your face and body post-shower? I am all for ease, speed and convenience, but guys… body lotion is one of the worst things you can put on your face! I know how tempting it can be, especially in the cold, dry winter months when we need to moisturize our skin more than usual. But trust me… don’t do it!
Okay, you may be wondering, Craig… why in the heck not? Fair question. First, let’s not ignore the most obvious reason why not… the word “body” is in the title!
Well, all jokes aside, there IS a reason that’s not too far off…
Lotion formulated for the body can be drying and irritating to the more sensitive skin on your face. Your body’s skin is thicker and tougher than the skin on your face, so companies can get away with putting fragrances and cheaper ingredients in a body lotion. Not to mention, the exposure your face encounters on a daily basis due to nature’s elements are greater than the rest of your body. So a face moisturizer designed with addressing these issues is better suited for the job!
