- A body lotion can help you keep your skin in the best of health. The right one can even address common skin care problems, such as stretch marks, cellulite or irritation. Still, even the best body lotions can't provide you with benefits if you don't apply them properly! That's why many people prefer to use applicators to help them slather on their lotions. Here at drugstore.com, we carry an assortment of applicators available to help you make the most of your lotion.

Why Use a Lotion Applicator?

Every inch of skin needs moisture to remain healthy. Without moisture, skin can grow dry, leading to roughness, flakiness, itching and even cracking and chapping. Lotions help to prevent symptoms of dryness by adding moisture to the skin. Unfortunately, it's not easy to reach every part of your body when you're applying lotion. As a result, you can easily miss spots on your back, the backs of your legs and elsewhere on your body. Applicators help to solve this problem by extending your reach and allowing you to evenly apply lotion everywhere.

How Applicators Work

A body lotion applicator is a skin care tool that has a handle and a head. When you're ready to apply a body lotion, you dispense the product onto the head of the applicator. Then, you can grip the handle and rub the head against your skin. By massaging the area of application thoroughly with the applicator, you can transfer the lotion to your skin and work the product in. As an added bonus, the massaging action of the applicator can soothe stress and help you relax, making applying body lotion a more luxurious experience.

Getting the Perfect Applicator

Body lotion applicators come in different styles. Some are simple straight tools, while others fold up and can be easily packed into a travel bag or suitcase for use on the go. Most applicators feature foam pads on their heads that help lotions stick to the tools. Over time, the foam becomes worn, making it necessary to replace the applicator. You can purchase some applicators in multi-packs, giving you spare tools for when it comes time for a replacement.
