It is no secret that the air on-board most planes is
2) almost at sub-zero degrees (which probably explains why the air is so dry)
So, I get off the plane and find myself in Myanmar with blazing hot sun and almost volcano-like temperatures. Even though Yangon’s temperatures are high, the air is dry and very different from Singapore’s humid weather.
Thankfully, prior to this trip to Myanmar, Jergens generously sent over 3 bottles of their best body lotions and I packed one of the 400ml bottles in my check-in luggage.
Jergens, the Number 1 Body Lotion Brand in USA*
* Nielsen Retail Sales, MAT Nov 2014
I did some digging about found that Jergens is the number 1 body lotion in the US of A. This is no surprise to me because I have been to many of the drugstores in the US and always find little travel-sized bottles of these body lotions. I loved travel-sized stuff so I inevitably pick up one or two bottles of this best-selling lotion not just for myself, but as gifts to my friends too.
Your skin is your biggest organ and makes up more than 80% of your body. But you already knew that. More importantly, whether you are dressing up or dressing down, your skin IS your biggest accessory. It is only right that you keep your canvas looking good, glowing and healthy.
Jergens is so popular because of a breakthrough HydralucenceTM blend only available in their lotions. This illuminating effect stems from the microscopic serum droplets in the lotion that forms a shield on the skin, giving it a healthy glow.
This little droplet of lotion may not look like anything but it is packed with hydrating elements such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, cucumber extract, Silk Proteins or Vitamin B5.
There are 3 different moisturizers in the Jergens collection with the Hydralucence blend and depending on the body lotion you choose, your skin will be soft and supple to the touch.
Choose the Daily Moisture for smoother skin, the Soothing Aloe for soothed and refreshed skin or the Ultra Healing that nourishes and heals.
Dry skin is obvious to the naked eye – you will see fine lines and little triangle shapes. I know because I stare at my hands on the airplane horrified at how dry they become. On top of that, my legs get very dry after I disembark from the airplane. Again, skin is scaly and you can easily leave scratch marks.
But after the first use of Ultra Healing (designed for extra dry skin), I immediately saw the difference! The fine lines were less visible and my skin was incredibly soft to the touch! You will literally see the glow of your skin because your skin is now a smooth surface that will catch the light.
The palms of my hands also get the moisturizing effect, sometimes even more so than the affected areas because I use them to massage the body lotion all over. And unlike other body lotions I have used before, there is no sticky residue or oily feeling when I use Jergens.
In fact, the skin of my palms are so smooth, it is like I have slipped on a silk glove.
Applying your body lotions immediately after a shower is the best.
Of the three moisturizers, my favourite fragrances are from Daily Moisture and Soothing Aloe. Daily Moisture reminds me of an ocean breeze and I like to use it after a long day and a hot shower. Applying it just before going to bed relaxes me and always puts me in a good mood before bed-time.
The Jergens Soothing Aloe is refreshing and perfect for keeping my skin cool and moisturized after a day in the sun. Whenever, I apply the lotion its fragrance reminds me of a fresh spring day. Aloe Vera is widely known for its cooling properties so I always use it after a swim or tanning by the pool to prevent my skin from further hydration loss.
It is so hard to choose one to suit your lifestyle isn’t it? Haha. This is why I have all 3 for all occasions! You can pick up some samples by visiting the Jergens site or simply find out more about Jergens here. Regardless of your lifestyle or your skin needs, there is a Jergens body lotion just for you.
The new Jergens body moisturizer range with Hydralucence blend comes in 400ml bottle packs. Each retails for S$8.90 and can be found at leading supermarkets, western pharmacies, and personal care stores.
