Skin Care  

Are you looking for that glowing, healthy skin? Applying body lotion is among the few low-cost ways for individuals to pamper themselves. Continue reading to discover the eight key benefits of using body lotions.

  • Blog Post

    Body care lotions soften rough heels and elbows, as well as other dry parts of the skin. Besides, bath body lotions seal moisture into the skin to retain it.

    A good body skin lotion can do miracles for scaly, dehydrated skin that looks unappealing and rough. Also, hand body lotions work particularly well on the hands and feet, but they can be used all over the body.

    Body lotions, as millions of users will concur, offer numerous benefits to those who take the time to apply them regularly.

    1. Body Lotions Hydrate Dry Skin

    Are your knees, elbows, and heel cracked and dry? If they are, body lotions are the answer for you. Applying body lotion to these parts, especially before sleeping, can help solve the irritating problem.

    Depending on the weather and climate conditions of where we live, the skin might become dry and chapped. Also, exposure to chemicals, heat, wind, dryness, and pollution can make the skin thicken and dry. Such skin is at times difficult to treat with regular cosmetics.

    Also, if you have sensitive skin, you know it becomes irritated and dry quickly, even with indoor heat. This requires you to hydrate the skin regularly.

    Hydrate the skin using body lotion to preserve its healthy state. Lotions work wonders to restore your skin by sealing moisture deep to keep it supple. Use quality lotion after showering to get optimal hydration benefits and soften dry parts.

    Regular use of body lotion ensures the skin preserves its natural health, glow, and sheen. Lotions will work miracles to eliminate that stubborn acne and chafe on your skin.

    Properly hydrated skin has a fantastic glimmer making you even more attractive.

    2. Softens Patches and Calluses

    Dry skin presents a sheer number of other problems. Dry skin gets patches, calluses, and corns on the feet after standing or walking for long. Calluses and corns are particularly painful and can cause a lot of discomforts.

    Applying the right body lotion is the most practical way of dealing with patches and calluses. The lotion will hydrate and moisturize these rough spots, keeping them moist. With regular use of body lotion, calluses and patches will clear out, turning to healthy skin.

    You know dry skin or patches can make you feel uncomfortable, right? Well, body lotion solves this. It soothes the rough patch on the skin, clearing it.

    Rough and dry skin can also cause itchiness and irritation. This makes you scratch the skin, which can even damage it more. The body lotion is recommendable when you want to get rid of skin itchiness.

    Lotion replenishes dry spots on your skin, making it supple and soft quickly. It wipes out any trace of patches, calluses, or scratch on the skin. Body lotion helps remove dead skin from your feet easily, leaving them feeling glossy.

    3. Sweet Smell

    What attracts people more than a classic fragrance? Do you want to smell good but dislike the strong perfume smell? Body lotions will give a light and pleasant scent, making you smell fresh all the time.

    Like other skincare products, lotions come with different scents. Body lotions consist of natural extracts and essential oils, and they all have a unique scent. Your personal preference and personality style will determine the right scent for your body lotion.

    You are sure to find multiple different body lotions scents, both light and strong.

    Does your sleep get disrupted by annoying mosquito bites? Unique body lotion scents can act as powerful mosquito repellants. This means applying body lotion before bedtime can give you a peaceful night free of usual mosquito buzzing and bites.

    By applying lotion regularly, you get a signature fragrance, glowing skin, and mosquito protection all from one product.

    4. Optimizing Skin Nutrients Absorption

    Are you aware your skin also needs nutrients to shimmer and stay healthy? Nutrients such as collagen and keratin form the skin's structure, while amino acids help old skin to shuck off.

    The absorption of these nutrients happens through the skin pores. However, these pores remain closed during the day or are blocked by dirt, pollution, and bacteria.

    These pores will open at night or after you take a shower helping to absorb the required nutrients from the skin. To increase and optimize these bacteria absorption, using lotion is recommended.

    Applying body lotion right after bathing or before bed enhances the nutrients absorption process. The skin thus absorbs all the essential nutrients thanks to the use of lotion. This only improves the health of your skin, helping you to reap all the benefits.

    Also, the lotion helps protect your skin from direct sunlight. Applying lotion during the day will act as a sunscreen. This enables you to avoid sunburns caused by exposure to direct sunlight.

    5. Provides Relaxation

    After a long and stressful day at work, you need to relax, right? Now envision relaxing after that hot shower? Great feeling, isn't it?

    The relaxation could enhance if you apply a quality body lotion. You will massage yourself lightly while soothing your skin. The gentle feeling on the skin as your hands move to massage can quash pain and relieve stress.

    Self-massage when applying body lotion stimulates the brain to release endorphins. Endorphins will give you an incredible feeling of relaxation and happiness.

    After a wearing day, a lotion massage would be a splendid gift to your worn-out body. This aids in the relaxation and rejuvenation of your body amidst the daily life hassles.

    You now have a new way to keep yourself relaxed and happy. Get quality and luxurious body lotion and apply it nicely and comfortably.

    6. Anti-Aging Factor and Regeneration

    Are wrinkles bothering you? Making you feel like you are growing old? With body lotion, wrinkles will be a thing of the past.

    Lotion alters wrinkles formation. They have an anti-aging ingredients element that maintains the skin tender and youthful. Also, the components contained in lotion enhance collagen growth, maintaining healthy skin.

    Regular use of lotion benefits the skin with anti-aging factors. This prevents wrinkles from developing, making you look younger with constant glowing skin.

    The skin renews itself once every 28 days. The thinner outer layer known as the epidermis, which contains the dead cells, is shed off. Applying body lotion before sleeping will help increase the process of regeneration.

    Body lotion hastens cell regeneration by quickly clearing dead cells off the skin. A complete cell regeneration ensures the skin remains healthy and fresh at all times. Through faster regeneration aided by lotion, your skin glows due to the absence of dead cells.

    Use lotion to improve dead skin removal and enjoy the anti-aging benefits.

    7. Improves Skin Elasticity

    Are you seeking tight and supple skin? Want a skin that can stretch and snap back to its original shape? Using lotion can give you this skin elasticity.

    Skin elasticity is lost or reduced with exposure to direct sunlight. Most body lotions contain components known to improve skin elasticity and suppleness. Applying lotion, especially at bedtime, helps repair damaged skin and making it look smooth and rejuvenated.

    Lack of skin humidity makes it look crinkled and saggy, especially during the morning. Body lotion replaces the lost humidity, which only improves skin appearance and health.

    Using the best body lotion for you daily can deliver multiple benefits to your skin.

    8. Make Skin Glow

    Glowing skin is one of the most attractive features in a person. Everyone loves glittering skin. But how can you make yours glow?

    Body lotion makes the skin glow by removing the dull and dead cells on the surface while restoring the basal tissues.

    For radiant and glowing skin, a body lotion is what you need. Regular use of body lotion will give your skin a lively feel. The glow and shimmering come as a result of the hydration level achieved.

    When the skin gets adequately moisturized, you are sure to get heads turning. You achieve an enchanting glow that makes you stand out. You can get cosmetic lotions whose primary purpose is making your skin shimmer.

    Do you want to make your skin glow? Use a quality body lotion.

    You Now Know the Benefits of Body Lotion

    Using quality body lotion can offer you many benefits. Whether you want to make your skin glow, healthy or hydrated, or you want that good scent, body lotion is what you need.

    Use the best body lotion to enjoy the benefits given above.

Shipping & Handling

A safe and accurate address for delivery must be provided at the time the order is placed. Once an order has shipped, is NOT responsible for lost or stolen packages CONFIRMED BY THE CARRIER to be delivered to the address provided for the order.

Since COVID-19, and the ensuing economic challenges in the USA economy, we respectfully ask that you allow some additional time for delivery for the carriers (USPS, UPS, and FedEx). Most orders still arrive on time, or near on time, but some may run late. We make every effort to get your order packed and into the carriers hands the same day, or by the next business morning if your order came in later in the previous day after carrier pickup, but we have no control over any delays that may happen within the shipping carrier's delivery system. Please order earlier for the time being if you are time-sensitive.

Shipping Options

Country Option Schedule Cost
United States Standard 3-6 Days $4.95
United States Priority 2-4 Days $9.95
United States Free 7-10 Days $0.00
International FedEx International 4-7 Days $79.95*

When your order ships we will send you a confirmation email with the delivery tracking information.

International Shipping

Shipping anything these days internationally is expensive. COVID resulted in more rigorous customs import processes, and now with much higher energy prices, international shipping rates are higher.

FedEx is the most reliable and faster carrier, at least for now, but they are expensive. Our FedEx international shipping fee is a minimum of $79.95. It usually makes more sense to get several months of supply (3 months or more) in one order to minimize the shipping expense per order over time. While the added weight of additional items may increase the base shipping price by a little (usually 10-25% depending upon total weight and destination), it is usually not by very much relative to shipping an additional small order later.

We also offer a lower-cost international shipping option using GlobalPost International for $39.95. So far, they have been reliable in getting packages correctly delivered but it takes 2 - 4 times as long to get the package delivered. Packages may take longer to process in the receiving country's customs process and status updates may not be reported as quickly. Please be patient if you choose this option to save money.

Some International orders may cost more to ship depending upon weight and location. If that happens we will contact you first and get your approval for any additional charge before proceeding. International orders may also be subject to additional customs fees and duties/taxes based upon the destination country's customs import laws and policies. These fees are NOT known or included on our order form and are typically charged and collected by the shipping carrier when they are delivering the product to it's final destination once the package has cleared the destination country's customs process. It is recommended that the buyer research custom import fees for the products/services they are importing beforehand to be aware of potential, additional fees.

Shipping Refrigerated Products

Our manufacturers formulate their probiotics to ensure their products retain viability until they reach the consumer. Probiotics that are recommended to be refrigerated remain so until the time of shipment, then shipped alongside an ice pack to ensure potency (Note: Ice pack will not arrive frozen, and product may not arrive cold). Orders placed on a Thursday-Sunday requiring cold shipping will not ship until the following Monday.


If your order has not been shipped yet, you can request a cancellation. Your original purchase amount will be refunded within three business days. If your order has already shipped, see Returns and Refunds.

Changes, Returns and Refunds

If you want to make a change to your order, please email us as soon as possible so we can make the change before your order ships. If your order has already shipped you may incur additional shipping charges for the second shipment and the return label for any products returned.

If we have made a mistake on your order, or the product arrives in a damaged or unusable condition, we will make every reasonable effort to right the situation quickly to your satisfaction.

We accept returns subject to when the return is requested and the condition the product is returned in. All returns must first be authorized by contacting us. In your request, please let us know why you are returning the item(s). We will respond promptly with authorization, the return address, and a return shipping label if appropriate.

If your order has already shipped you can return any un-opened products within 30 days of receiving your order for a 100% refund of the price paid for the product, less the actual shipping charges we incurred to get the product to you originally and then returned, less a $10 restocking fee. Un-opened means the protective seal on the bottle or container, or the shrink-wrap on the box or kit, has not been broken and the product has not otherwise been damaged in any way. You may use the original packaging for the return or acquire your own. We will provide the return shipping label. We DO NOT accept returns for NuMedica products once the protective product seal has been broken.

Upon receipt of returned product(s), we will refund your credit card within three business days for the product(s) returned.
