Using Hand and Body Lotion

August 3, 2005

A bottle of hand lotion.My grandmother was very careful with her skin she always bought a small bottle of almond oil and added it to all of her store bought lotions. It makes a huge difference in the moisture and can be added to almost any type of lotion.


Add about a teaspoon or tablespoon depending on size of bottle. Just add and shake. Hope it helps!

Instead of tossing them, I use them as foot lotion in my socks when I just want to soften my feet for a few hours or over night.

I bought a tube of cream, but didn't like it because it was too greasy. I remember reading that if you apply any greasy cream right after you shower or take a bath, it won't feel greasy or leave any greasy residue.

When applying moisturiizer or hand lotion to your face or body, do this. Wash first and have your skin a little damp (not wet), then apply the lotion.


You need a very little bit by using on damp skin. The bit of dampness make your lotions soak in faster.

I am so excited to share this tip! Every year I request a certain body lotion from Bath and Body Works. This year, I received the set for Christmas that included the body oil.

I got an Avon lotion from my mom's store. When I checked, the manufactured date is 2004 2007. Should I use it? I didn't find the expiration date.

If lotions go bad they change color, texture or smell. We found a white lotion in our daughters room that turned brown and smelled bad, so we threw it away. If it seems good, then use it
