Always Apply After The Shower 

Hands down the best time to apply your moisturizer is after a warm shower. When it comes to your face moisturizer, you’ll want to moisturize directly after washing your face. So after you scrub with our Black Pepper and Sandalwood Luxury soap made with cocoa butter, shea butter, olive and coconut oil, you’ll want to follow up with our Black Pepper & Sandalwood Body Lotion. This top selling lotion is made with Hemp seed oil and Shea Butter as its number one ingredients to ensure your skin feels smooth and nourished all day long. 

When we moisturize after the shower, our pores are still open and ready to drink up that moisture. Furthermore, the thin layer of water still lingering on our skin helps aid in moisturizing our skin, especially when paired with the right natural ingredients. 

When washing your face, start with the Handmade Sea Moss Soap great for all skin types, but especially dry and sensitive skin types. Then follow up as described above with Dornee’s Luxe Facial Moisturizer made with essential oils that are light yet powerful ensuring your skin really glows.

Don’t Wait Until Your Skin is Dry

We also want to encourage you to use your moisturizer daily. Prevention is key, always. We want to avoid getting to the point where our skin is unbearably dry. By applying our moisturizers daily, with the right ingredients, like shea butter and cocoa butter, then we ensure our skin is hydrated all year long, leaving our skin soft and smooth even during those cool winter months. 

Bonus hint: Essential oils like jojoba oil, olive oil and hemp seed oil act as sealants, so that moisture can’t escape from your skin.
