How often can I use almactin body lotion? It helps keep my skin clear and not dry. I just don't want to wear spf during the summer. Similar lotions?

How often can I use almactin body lotion? It helps keep my skin clear and not dry. I just don't want to wear spf during the summer. Similar lotions?

As often as you wish: No limit. Whatever feels best. SPF is not something you wear!!! Sun Protective Factor is a number which indicates sun protection. SPF 30, or at least 15, is as effective as any higher #. Sunscreens are added to many moisturizers that you are sure to like. Try some. You will like them.

Dry skin?: If you are asking for a treatment for dry skin, then I prefer a good moisturizer. May exist, but vaseline mixed with water and coconut oil can help with severe dryness. Burt's bees is a pretty good brand if you specifically want a milk lotion, which they offer.
