Runes and Rhinestones

I'm a modern day Viking, navigating my way through a stormy sea of stuff.

Totally bemused.

on January 7, 2013

I just realised I have no idea when one is supposed to apply body lotion. Don’t get me wrong, I love the stuff but I also have many lotions that I just get confused at.

My sequence of showering goes:

  1. Shower.
  2. Get out of shower.
  3. Shiver.
  4. En-robe self in either towel or dressing gown, preferably both.
  5. Hang around until dry.
  6. Shiver.
  7. Get dressed.
  8. Shiver a bit more for luck.

There is no space in that to-do list of showering for the application of body lotion. Also, when is the ideal time to apply? Just after showering when you’re all wet so it doesn’t stay on your skin but slips to the floor in a suspicious looking dollop? After you’re dry, but before you’re dressed so you get lotion all inside your clothes? I’m fairly sure nobody needs lotion pants.

Seriously world, I’m confused.

    That’s what happens when you try fancy stuff you weren’t brought up on! Theory says belotion yourself between towelling & dressing – warm slightly damp skin should slurp it up so you don’t get it on your knickers!

    And after doing what motherdearest says, walk around shivering for a minute or two just to make sure skin is dry before dressing.

    Yep, they’re right! I put mine on and then blow dry my hair so I stay warm while the lotion soaks in.
