Myth: The thicker or the richer the moisturisers are, the better it is to hydrate the skin.
Truth: Thick or rich moisturisers can actually clog up the pores and may only offer surface hydration.
Personally, I am not really not a fan of body moisturisers and I don't really care about my body except for my face so I hardly apply any mositurisers to my skin. I really dislike the stickiness some moisturisers have, especially in Sunny Singapore whereby the weather is usually humid. Sweat already makes my body sticky so I do not need another moisturiser to add on to the stickiness. In addition, I hate going to bed feeling sticky all over.
WHERE CAN'T THERE BE A BODY MOISTURISER/ LOTION THAT CAN DO PROVIDE GOOD HYDRATION WITHOUT ME FEELING STICKY? :@
If you share the same sentiments as me, Nivea has a product called Intensive Moisture Serum that is able to do the job without making your skin feels sticky and the best thing of all is that it contains SPF 25 PA++ so it can kinda act like a sunblock so there's not really a need to apply another layer of sunblock after applying this if you are staying indoor. And yeap, it is the FIRST body serum that not only repairs 10 signs of extra accumulated dry and damaged skin within 24 hours, but also shields it from the sun.
Nivea Intensive Moisture Serum contains 100X Vitamin E & Grape Seed Oil which are known for their strong antioxidant properties. They are capable of defending skin cells from sun induced problems and free radical damages and also guards the skin loyally from the loss of moisture. It also contains Avocado Oil is one of the oils that can be easily absorbed by the skin and transported deep into the tissues, relieving dryness and itch, contributes to regeneration and rejuvenation of the skin, and repairs dry and damaged skin in the process. Inspired by a nobel prized winning discovery, Hydra IQ works by increasing the number of water channels in the skin cells by 3 times. As such, water flows better and faster from cell to cell, even to the deeper layers of the skin. This restores skin’s own moisture supply and regulates the balance of moisture within it
I really like the texture of Nivea Intensive Moisture Serum as it is very very easy to spread and does not leave a sticky feeling on the skin after applying which means that it is being absorbed almost instantaneously so there is almost zero waiting time! I am a very lazy person so any time saved is more time for me to laze around. :D However, it does not mean that it does not hydrate the skin as i feel my skin getting smoother after applying. Definitely be using the Nivea Intensive Moisture Serum to pamper my body instead of neglecting it. :)
