“I need to know what you suggest as a good lotion. My skin is really dry and bumpy and not to be TMI but I want to have smooth skin to wear a bikini. I want something that will work on my butt as well. Any suggestions?” – Maria
Maria, I know exactly how you feel and what I’m about to share with you will probably be one of the best Andrew Jacksons you’ve ever spent on a bottle of lotion. But first let me tell you my back story…
When I was in high school, I read an article in a magazine about slathering on lotion immediately after a shower for baby soft skin. Not one to miss out on anything baby soft, I started lathering immediately and have been ever since and let me tell you, I kid you not, I’m often told when I hug people that I’m “very soft.” One day my aunt grabbed my hands to look at my nails and squealed, “Honeeee, your hands are like butta!” to which I proceeded to let her in on my little secret, my lotion!
For a while I was using Eucerin lotion (a really great lotion btw) and on accident, sheer accident, started using something else I found laying around the house – Amlactin Lotion. Thinking nothing of it, I slathered on this plain smelling lotion and went on with my day. Then I did it another day and another. So here I am, a couple weeks later, getting dressed when I notice out of the corner of my eye that my stretch marks on my right cheek (in high school my butt when from pancake to dunk in the blink of an eye like) are diminishing. Say what now? Well, the only thing I’d been using was the Amlactin lotion.
And low and behold it was the Amlacin Lotion because it has 12% lactic acid which helps to exfoliate the skin at a faster pace than normal and also acts as a humectant by keeping moisture in the skin. I’m talking skin changes in about a month – glowing even tone, skin softness like a baby’s bottom, skin. I really can’t stop saying awesome things about this lotion and how much it’s worth the investment. I t works great on all skin tones and helps to treat keratosis pilaris (aka chicken skin) as well.
The idea of a $20 bottle of lotion seems like a bit much, I know, but it’s so worth it – so worth it. If you’ve got rough dry skin, dark spots on your back or dark spots on your inner thighs and bootay then this lotion may be able to help you with that. It’s the best lotion for dry skin that I’ve ever tried. All the single ladies with smooth skin put your hands up!
