Moisturising is an essential part of any beauty routine, but it’s not just our face that needs a hit of hydration. Our body can battle through the elements, especially during the colder months, and the result is often dry or cracked skin. I suffer horrendously on my legs during winter, as the wind catches through my tights and rips away the upper layers of moisture to leave me with unsightly scales. My arms are also susceptible to dryness, so using a body lotion has been a vital part of my routine for as long as I can remember. However, fancy lotions and potions that contain scents and complex ingredients can often irritate my skin further and cause a little red rash to appear on the surface. E45’s Intense Recovery Lotion has become a handy sidekick in recent weeks, providing me with the support my skin needs to repair itself and prepare for the onset of ‘limb baring’ weather!
The lotion is unexpectedly really light and practically fragrance free, making it the perfect ‘go to’ product on a daily basis. I’ve been using this morning and night on both my arms and legs, ensuring my skin is smooth and supple. It’s really helped to provide me with a hydrated surface that’s fit to reveal in the summer dresses that will hopefully be taken out of storage soon; E45 is also great at hydrating skin the week before a spray tan, ensuring the result is flawless and stays put for as long as possible. My boyfriend suffers with horrendous eczema and has also turned to this lotion to support his body’s needs. It doesn’t irritate or sting, but provides an instant soothing sensation to his skin. In less than two weeks his skin is smoother than I’ve ever known it to be!
E45 may be a brand you would otherwise overlook, but it really can make a difference to your skincare routine and the look of your limbs. It’s so light and absorbs quickly so you can go about your day, even being great for a pre-bed moisturising session when you don’t want to stick to your bedsheets. At less than £5.00 for a giant bottle, it’s also a fab budget buy that should be a great staple within your body care repertoire. Why don’t you check it out and share your stories of E45 below?
