Here's to silky smooth skin every day!
It's funny how when I was younger, I could live without body moisturiser but these days, maybe it's an age thing or maybe it's the change in climate (you know how ridiculously hot it gets?!) and lifestyle with all the frequent travelling, but moisturising my body (especially my legs!) is a definite must for me.
I usually moisturise my body right after my nightly shower, particularly cause I sleep in an air-conditioned room. Also, dermatologists often advise that we apply moisturiser within 5 minutes after a bath so that the product is able to trap some of the water left on your body and use it to hydrate your skin.
A little tip: Before applying moisturiser, be sure to pat your skin with a towel until it's almost dry instead of rubbing it, as rubbing it vigorously can irritate sensitive skin.
I've started using the NIVEA’s bestselling product, the Intensive Moisture Body Milk and I really like it! The formula is pretty amazing - it gets absorbed into your skin really quickly and leaves your skin glowing, soft, smooth and silky.

You can see how my skin is usually quite dry and patchy... and almost scaly but upon application of the NIVEA’s Body Milk, it immediately and intensively hydrates the skin and leaves this healthy glow.
Additionally, I also like the non-sticky finish and consistency of the product. It's almost like a fluid milk which makes it very easy to spread.
Of course bath time isn't the only time of day you should moisturise your body.
In the day, I like to use the bestselling Nivea Intensive Moisture Body Milk SPF 15 because, sun damage IS real. The same silky soft texture and non sticky finish is not compromised by the addition of UV filters. Also, you might want to know that the scent is not strong at all and doesn't linger so it makes it easy to wear your favourite perfume still after it soaks in.
With this duo, silky smooth skin can be made a daily affair easily.
If you didn't already know, NIVEA - which is synonymous with body lotions - is Singapore's #1 brand for Hand & Body Moisturisers (based on Nielsen '15 data) and they are SO sure about the hydration efficacy of their #1 body moisturiser to deliver smoother skin that they're offering a 100% money back guarantee.
So go on and experience the Nivea Intensive Moisture Milk for yourself.
Or better yet, share it with a friend!
