Lotion is usually in the form of an oil and water emulsion that’s applied to the skin as a topical for a variety of benefits including healing dry skin and as a preventive measure and treatment for blemishes. Lotions have minerals and vitamins designed to smoothen and soften the skin, provide UV protection like sunscreen, and even promote tanning. Lotions can also be used as topical medical applications in the case of acne blemish gels and cortisone creams. Although it has fewer overall applications than lotion, moisturizer is a similar emulsion of oils, lubricants, skin lipids and sterols used to hydrate the skin. Moisturizers range from low to high viscosity depending on the type of skin they are manufactured for and treat dry skin, improve skin tone and are also designed to cover up blemishes.
Many of the traditional and less expensive products are chemical based. They contain synthetic oils and other chemicals that are unnatural and may increase skin dryness and other conditions instead of helping to improve these blemishes. Those prone to rashes and allergic reactions to certain types of chemicals found in common lotions and moisturizers are in luck as there are now body lotions that contain natural ingredients like Silky Hand and Body Lotion made by D&C Soap Company.

Many people deal with skin dryness at some point in their life or on a regular, seasonal basis.
