We already wrote about the recommended soaps for glowing fair skin, and also how to choose the best soap that works for your fair skin in Nigeria.
In this post, you are going to learn the best body creams and lotions recommended for flawless fair skin. As I said earlier, having lighter skin is only great when it is popping. If your fair skin is not clear of spots, wrinkles and blemishes, then it leaves less to be desired.
So how do you get your fair skin to perfect glowing status in Nigeria? This is actually simpler than you’d expect. Eating right and exercising are great for your skin but another very crucial aspect of your journey to flawless skin is picking the right soap and body cream that works for your skin.
Your choice of soap and body cream can easily make or mar your glowing skin journey. Remember, skincare routines are personal. Your bestie’s all-perfect regimen can be the death of your own skin. So, calm down and find something that really works for you.
When trying out a completely new product, it is advisable you do a test application first. Try a small amount of the product on your hand or thigh and watch the outcome. It is also great to use a complete skin set of a particular product. A good example is the Oriflame Silk Beauty White Glow Kit which contains a soap bar, hand cream, body wash and lotion.
Here are 7 great body creams and lotions recommended for fair skin use in Nigeria:
1. Oriflame® Essentials Fairness Body Lotion
Oriflame® Essentials Fairness Body Lotion contains natural pomelo extract and UV filters to keep your skin fresh and protected all day long. Pomelo extract is a well-known anti-ageing agent which contains antioxidants that prevent skin damage caused by harmful free radicals. This lotion also comes with a fruity citrus scent that is irresistible to the sense of perception. Oriflame® Essentials Fairness Body Lotion helps keep the skin fresh, soft and young.
2. Fair & White® Gold 2 Maxi Tone Body Lotion
This lotion is especially great for those seeking to rejuvenate fading skin. Fair & White Gold 2 Maxi Tone Body Lotion contains AHA which is great for exfoliating and whitening dull fair skin. The lotion which comes packaged in a 250ml stylish bottle also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, thereby eliminating all signs of ageing.
3. Jergens® Natural Glow Sunless Tanning Lotion
Jergens® Natural Glow Sunless Tanning Lotion is great for people seeking to get a little tan on their fair skin. The lotion is formulated with natural ingredients that give the skin a full shade of natural-looking brown in just a matter of days. A lot of people use this lotion as “bus stop cream” to maintain the skin shade they already achieved.
4. Aveeno® Positively Radiant Body Lotion
This lotion is made from a “soy complex” and light diffusers which have been proven to keep your skin soft, silky and bright. It is said that Aveeno’s unique soy formula was derived from traditional Chinese medicine. Using Aveeno® Positively Radiant Body Lotion is a great way to transform dull skin to glowing and radiant. This rich-formula lotion is also an excellent moisturizer.
5. Neutrogena® Body Lotion Light Sesame Formula
This lotion is great for both fair and medium skin tones. One particularly great thing about Neutrogena® Body Lotion Light Sesame Formula is its lightness. This lotion does not feel heavy or greasy on the skin so it is perfectly okay for the Nigerian weather. This is one lotion that moisturizes and softens skin, while also allowing it to breathe. The lotion might not be the perfect choice for extremely dry skin.
6. Fashion Fair® Special Formula Lotion
If you find this product, keep it. I doubt you will find this lotion easily though, because it is always sold out. Fashion Fair® Special Formula Lotion is exceptionally good for repairing damaged skin. Good thing is that this lotion does cause any trouble when you switch. You can run out of it and move over to another lotion and then come back to it again when you eventually see it.
7. Nivea® Extra Whitening Cell Repair Body Lotion
Has your fair skin dulled from poor care? Damaged from overexposure? Full of spots? Uneven, rough and flaky? Then you should try Nivea® Extra Whitening Cell Repair Body Lotion. This milky formula’s cell repair claim appears to have been confirmed in most of the reviews about it. The lotion just like the Jergens® Natural Glow Sunless Tanning Lotion is great for fair-skinned people who don’t want to get lighter and just want to maintain their current skin shade.
