I've not tried that before. Well I kinda did once when I was in a hurry, but then the water just takes the lotion everywhere and it felt slimy. Sometimes the water in my hair does the same thing, so I always dry everything up before putting any moisturizers, lotions... w/e.. etc. on. :)

Yes - if you read those fitness/health/beauty magazines, they tell you to get the most out of moisturizing, that you should put it on when your skin is stillw et after shower. The reason being is that your pores are open and it will absorb better. When your skin is dry the pores close therefore the lotion doesn't penetrate as well.

Sometimes when I'm in a hurry to step outta the house , but usually rather after drying my body

I put on lotion after shower. But I pat dry my body first. I know what you're talking about so the moisture would stay in your skin. But don't know when you're still have wet skin though.

Yes most beauty magazines advice you to put on your lotion while your body is not wet but relatively moist. I mean, definitely not the dripping wet kinda because it definitely won't go in your pores.

I think the best is to give your body a quick wipe with your towel, it doesn't have to be totally dry and put your lotion on.

Frankly speaking, I don't like putting lotion on while my body is wet cause its messy.

Those who don't put lotion should do so. Its always good to moisturize! :)

different people have different preference...I like mine not greasy/slimy so i put it on after i dry off; same as hand lotion la. I keep thinking that if put it on when is still wet than the lotion would just wash off haha

its kinda hard to put lotion on when your body is wet because its all wet. When i put lotion on, i try to get it so that it goes on and disappears, but with water its so hard to do that and its like all watery and weird.

i put lotionS on when i get out of the shower.....like right away. I dry myself off and then start rubbing the stuff into my face and neck. I don't really care about arms and stuff they are never dry or anything......just the eczema on my face that gets really out of control >_<.

But ur not spose to put lotion on when ur dripping wet! U put it on after u completely dry urself, but ur skin pores will still be open for a few minutes so don't worry, doesn't hav to be instant! And after u dry urself ur skin is still kinda damp unless u rub at it like really roughly, this is the ideal time to put on lotion. Not when ur like dripping wet! LOL

^^i agree with the above posts about magazines telling you to apply lotion while your skin is still moist. and i believe the reason is so that you can retain the moisture so your skin won't get really dry. (not too sure about the pore thing. i mean, you don't really want lotion in your pores.)

anyways, the problem is that different people have different skin types and lotions aren't all the same. so what might feel good to one person would feel incredible slimy or icky to another. i'm one of the latter. :)

You should do that it's not gross or anything. Cause it absorbs faster if you do that! Make sure you put it on wthin 3 min after you wash your face or body, it's better that way.

I put lotion on after I dried my self after a shower. I am currently trying "olay's moisturinse body lotion in the shower." It is like conditioner for your body. YOu would continue to use your soap to wash your body then after that you would use the moisturinse on your body and rinse it off. It supposelingy feel like lotion and make your body feel softer. The Bath and Body shop sells this stuff too and smells better but more expensive for a bottle.

Yeah usually i put lotion right after i dry my body after showering. That way your pores are still opened and that lets the lotion droplets to be absorbed more easily.
