    So I just got out of the shower and as a kid my grandpa, yes my grandPA use to always make me put on lotion. the first time I can ever remember him doing it to me was when I was 4 but my parents say he did it to me from birth. Well I kept the habit of doing it after he passed away and still do it to this day. Every night after I get out of the shower I grab my bottle of lotion and put it all over starting at my legs and moving up to my neck. I can not stand it on my face so I stop at my neck. Doing it tonight made me wonder, how many other people out there put on lotion after there night time shower every time?

    I use lotion everytime I get out of the shower. I hate having ashy skin.

    I put lotion on when I remember to or when my skin gets so dry it itches.

    I live in a tropical country so dryness is less of a problem though.

    No part of me is really ever dry, flaky or overly itchy, and I rarely ever use lotion. I've never done it after a shower. The only place I ever get dry is the backs of my hands, and that only happens if I wash my hands waaaaaay too much (dirty jobs) or if my hands chronically come into contact with harsh soaps for several days on end. Which again, only happens if I run out of normal soap and use dish soap to wash my hands, or when I've worked at car dealerships in the past, washing cars (great for cars, baaaaaaaaad for skin).

    Maybe it's because I've used nothing but Dove soap for the last 10-12 years for my showers. It allegedly has that ΒΌ moisturizing cream or whatever. All I know is that it's the only soap that doesn't make my skin feel strange and dry as all hell. Regular soap makes me feel like a dish I've just washed; you know that really dry, squeaky, friction-y feel? Whereas Dove always feels like the few times I've used actual lotion. If I'm ever forced to use regular soap (typically Irish Spring, Zest, Ivory, Dial), I do feel dried out and get sorta itchy.

    I usually only use lotion in the winter when it's REALLY dry out. And once a week, I mix in a bit of vaseline with my lotion. Does wonders!
