The pleasurable rubbing of lotion all over my body after a shower lowers my chance of getting Alzheimer’s and other chronic diseases. I deal intimately with skin as a massage therapist and as a Sexological Bodyworker, so I love how this University of California study changes my relationship with my skin. I shared this research with my dermatologist last week. She said, “Wow. This is a game changer.” The lotion I am using (Atopalm) from the actual study improves skin hydration, lowers pH, and repairs the permeability barrier using the following skin repair ingredients: cholesterol, free fatty acids, and ceramides. There are many cheaper options for your self massage practice that will repair your skin, stopping inflammation. The older you are, the more important it is to stop the cytokine storm.
