Today we’re taking a little vacay away from your hair to focus on your skin instead. If you didn’t already know, Number 4 also does a fabulous range of body lotions featuring essential natural ingredients such as natural coconut oil and shea butter to provide advanced skin protection.
With intoxicating fragrance notes as you’ve come to expect from the N4 range, all our body lotions are free of squalene, paraben, sulfate, gluten, and cruelty-free. Mais oui!
Do We Really Need To Use A Body Lotion?
Trust us, the answer is yes. But especially if your skin is feeling a little less supple and soft of late. As the cold weather sets in, skin, like hair, can become dehydrated and a body lotion will quickly become your new best friend. Just like we advocate using a deeply moisturizing conditioner to protect and hydrate your hair, the same rules apply to your skin, which, after all, is the largest organ in the body.
Lifestyle and environmental factors play their part in the ability of your skin to hold on to essential moisture. As too does good nutrition and adequate hydration. If you work on keeping your skin hydrated, it will remain more elastic and younger looking, and by using a good moisturizing body lotion like N4’s Fleurs de Temps and Lumiere d’Hiver Body Lotion, you will encourage cell turnover.
You can say au revoir dah-ling to dry, flakey skin and a big bonjour to long-lasting hydration and luxurious moisturization.
How And Why Does Skin Dry Out?
As mentioned above, there are a plethora of reasons that promote skin dryness but the most common ones can be identified below:
We hear ya! Is any season good for the skin? During the cooler months, cold air combined with bracing wind can play havoc on the skin. Not to mention our desire to curl up indoors next to the radiator or luxuriate in a hot bath to temper the chill. All the above can zap the skin of essential moisture and leave it looking and feeling flakey.
We’re talking diet and nutrition here. Too much salt can impact your skin’s moisture levels, while not drinking enough H2O depletes the skin of moisture. You’re essentially like a house plant! You need plenty of water and light to flourish.
Certain medications may contribute to unwanted dry skin. It’s always advisable to consult your doctor if you suspect this might be the case.
How Do N4’s Body Lotions Work?
It should come as no surprise dah-ling that a good moisturizer, just like a good conditioner, is an essential product to have in your beauty arsenal. Body lotions are designed to stop moisture from leaving the skin, locking it in place to help the skin remain silky smooth and soft to the touch.
N4’s range of supremely hydrating, nutrient-rich moisturizers, nourish, protect and replenish all skin types.
Emulsifier-free, there are three formulations in the range, all of which are fast-absorbing and designed to nourish and soften the skin without leaving any goopy residue.
The N4 Body Lotion Range
Let’s take a quick look at the three options you have from Number 4 High Performance Skin Care.
Available in a couple of sizes, including a convenient mini for on-the-go hydration, this deeply hydrating formula features fragrance notes of white freesia, golden amber and musk. It’s a wonderful, sensual lotion that’s fast-absorbing and, when combined with Fluoro5 Elixir Restore & Repair, transforms into a decadent massage lotion.
Again, available in two sizes, Fleurs de Temps is quick drying but super moisturizing and contains natural coconut oil alongside shea butter for unparalleled hydration. With gorgeous fragrance notes of linden blossom, trembled gardenia and sheer bark wood, it smells divine, while the pre-measured pump ensures the perfect application every time.
Featuring botanical extracts to smooth and calm the skin plus coconut oil to protect against premature aging, this nutrient-rich and hydrating body lotion leaves skin silky smooth and soft to the touch but without any sticky residue. Lovers of ylang orchid, jasmine vetiver and patchouli will simply adore L’eau de Mare.
If you are also looking to create a zen-like shower routine, then why not add N4’s Soothing Body Wash to your regime? It’s richly lathering, exquisitely nourishing and packed with botanical, mood-boosting extracts. Learn more about Number 4 Soothing Body Wash.
