Did you know that it takes exactly three minutes for your skin to start drying out after you get out of the shower? And that you have about thirty seconds after towelling off to slather on your favourite hydrating goop before all the moisture that’s already on your skin evaporates completely?

As well as imparting hydration, body lotions, creams and oils work more by sealing IN moisture; so it makes a lot of sense to use them before you even step out of the shower. Here are three of my favourite innovative hydration creations that’ll not only smooth your skin but speed up your skincare routine to boot!

Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner

This is one product that I would happily stock by the gallon. Made with a rich blend of Argan, almond and Brazil nut oils as well as cocoa and Shea butters, the added rose absolute leaves your skin delicately fragranced for hours. The stuff bath time dreams are made of.

Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion

Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion

If you’re looking for a “no-frills”, hard-hitting moisturiser, this is the one for you. It’s fragrance-free, specifically designed for sensitive skin with added pro-vitamin B5 and non-greasy to the touch. Expect to have it stolen by the males in your life.

Vaseline Spray Moisturiser

Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser

As far as drugstore moisturisers go, Vaseline is a hit almost every time. This version provides the same great formulas and scents in a light, easy to use, sprayable version that literally halves your lotion application time.

Have you tried any of these? What do you think?
