Patanjali Body Lotion Benefits & Uses

Patanjali Body Lotion reduces skin dryness and prevents skin diseases. It increases glow of the skin and improves complexion.

Dryness of the skin

Patanjali Body Lotion is an herbal moisturizer that keeps the skin well hydrated and prevents it from getting too dry. It soothes the skin and prevents itching that may occur due to the dryness. It makes the skin soft and supple. It nourishes the skin and protects it. Since the skin is considered the first line of defense for the body against harsh elements in the environment, regular application of Patanjali Body Lotion is considered useful for keeping it healthy and well nourished. It protects the skin when the sun, the wind, and cold weather leave the skin dry, irritated and itchy. It replenishes it and makes it appear glowing and vibrant so that men and women do not have to hide it under gloves.

It makes the skin smooth and soft and maintains its glow even during the winter months. As the temperature drops during winter, the humidity levels also become less. This leaves the skin excessively dry as the skin tend to lose moisture or sweat faster due to the low humidity levels. Patanjali Body Lotion locks in the moisture in the skin and prevents it from getting parched.

Additionally, this lotion is very mild. It does not cause any harm to the skin, unlike the commercial skin care products that contain several chemicals, which damage the skin over a period of time.

Patanjali Body Lotion is also useful for the patients with diabetes. Diabetic patients are at a risk of certain skin diseases like athlete’s foot and non-healing ulcers. Patanjali Body Lotion prevents these complications by protecting the skin from any damage. Dryness of the skin followed by itching is the most common cause for the development of these complications. Itching and scratching can also worsen the existing lesions and make them prone to bacterial infections. Patanjali Body Lotion keeps the skin moisturized and thus, blocks the chain of reaction that occurs due to the dryness.

This lotion has been found to be useful for the patients suffering from hypothyroidism. Dryness of the skin and itching are the common symptoms of this disease that can be relieved by using Patanjali skin lotion.

Cracks and fissures in the skin

Cracks and fissures are the common skin problems that usually occur or worsen during winter. These problems occur due to the dryness of the skin during this season. When the skin is too dry, the skin cells tend to die faster. The dead skin cells accumulate on the skin surface and make it appears dull and lusterless. This also affects the health of the skin and makes it prone to damage resulting in the formation of cracks and fissures. Patanjali Body Lotion can help in smoothening out these cracks and fissures. It can also help to maintain the glow of the skin.


Dermatitis is a common skin disease, which is often inherited and genetically determined. It occurs due to an increased sensitiveness of the skin to some irritants or allergens. The common symptoms of this condition include dry and scaly patches on the skin along with itching. Patanjali Body Lotion can help in reducing these symptoms effectively. It moisturizes the skin and prevents the symptoms of dermatitis. Regular application of this lotion helps to prevent frequent episodes of intense itching caused due to this condition. It protects the skin from the irritants by producing a soothing action. Frequent scratching of the skin is a common factor that results in worsening of the symptoms of dermatitis. Patanjali Body Lotion can help a person in controlling itching and thus, prevents the symptoms from getting worse.

Frequent scratching caused by dermatitis can also cause thickening and darkening of the skin and lead to further complications, such as bacterial infection. Regular application of this lotion also prevents these complications. It inhibits the breaking down of the dry skin. Though the application of Patanjali Body Lotion is not recommended while there is a discharge oozing from the lesion, it can definitely help in preventing these symptoms from developing.
