Battle of the sexes
A little while ago Liv discussed how annoying it is when boys do absolutely nothing for their skin yet sport absolutely flawless, radiant complexions. My boyfriend is one of those guys.
Well, almost. He does have one product that he uses religiously – it’s Vaseline Dry Skin Conditioning Lotion. I kid you not, the boy puts it everywhere – on his legs, his arms, his chest, his face and even his head (he has a shaved head). And as a result, he has the clearest, softest, most line-free skin I’ve ever seen on a 35-year-old male!
So of course I decided to get in on the action (no girl likes her man to have softer skin than she does!). While I’m slightly more discerning about where I put it – head, absolutely no; face…hmmm…only occasionally – I have been making a conscious effort to slather it all over my body every night before bed and every morning after my shower.
And the results? While my skin isn’t as soft as my boyfriend’s just yet (he does have a few extra years of use on me), there’s definitely a visible difference.
For one, all signs of scaly skin have disappeared, and my legs no longer get that horrible itchy feeling that’s caused by skin dehydration. Plus, having skin that’s softer and healthier-looking has made me feel better about my body in general – and that can never be a bad thing!
How often do you moisturise your body? Have you ever gotten beauty/grooming inspiration from a guy?
