Body lotion is a great item to switch because most of us aren’t that attached to a particular brand. It’s also something we get a lot of exposure to: we smear it all over our body and it absorbs all day!
My fave body lotions:
Ah, I love these body lotions. Affordable, lovely-smelling and they’re not too thick or too thin. Win-win. Only problem is they’re not available in Canada.
Green Beaver is a Canadian company and you can find their products at most health food stores. They have the thicker Boreal Lotion as well as more everyday options. Both are good. I use the thick Boreal lotion on my feet after the shower.
Much of the sunscreen info will be the same as in the facial sunscreen post – many of my fave facial sunscreens are actually meant for the body but are light enough for the face.
Weird Lotions Like Depilatory Creams and Self-Tanners
Just don’t. Don’t melt hair off your body. Do I need to go into this anymore? I don’t know what chemicals are used to melt hair, but you probably don’t want them in your bloodstream.
Self-tanners are toxic too. I mean, really. It’s not natural. Embrace your natural tone and work it.
