How to use calamine lotion? Its benefits, formula, properties and facts

Our skin holds everything in, it plays a vital role as a barrier to the outside world and a highly regulated system in the body. It has become a crucial task to maintain healthy skin with an apt PH (potential of hydrogen) balance, especially if one has sensitive skin.




What is Calamine Lotion?


Calamine Lotion usually comes in liquid lotion form, generally in light pink colour. The consistency of calamine lotion would be runny and not so thick. Thus the application of it becomes very easy as well as it spreads all over the skin and let the skin absorb it completely. Calamine lotion is a combination of zinc oxide and ferric oxide and is produced by adding other ingredients like phenol and calcium hydroxide. It stands 19th of the Model List of essential medicines issued by the World Health Organization.



Dermatologists recommend applying calamine lotion at least twice a day (morning and night) which can really help in balancing the PH of our skin and can fight over day to day skin problems.




Why Calamine Lotion is necessary?



Our skin faces a lot in our day to day life. Everything externally and internally affects it. Be it climatic changes, our eating habits, environmental changes, dust, pollution, daily stress, irregular sleeping patterns and the list goes on .. These situations give rise to major skin issues such as itchiness, acne, dark spots, uneven skin tone, signs of ageing and lot more (sigh) ..

In daily hustle-bustle we don’t have much time to follow a proper skin regime, moreover not all of us can buy from the expensive range of skincare products. Hence we seek a quick, effective solution and pocket-friendly product which can help fight these issues.



It has anti-itching and Anti-pruritic properties


It also possesses antiseptic properties which give us all the more reason to use it on daily basis. The U.S FDA approved calamine as a topical for counter skin protectant, for its harmless properties.

Calamine works like a counter-irritant effect. When applied, the calamine evaporates and produces a cooling effect, (Due to the presence of zinc oxide and aloe vera) this cooling effect also helps to distract us from mild skin-related issues. It has antiseptic properties which prevent itching, dryness, infection, acne, irritation and leaves skin with a soothing effect. I know most of us have used calamine lotion as a face moisturiser. But did you ever know it can be used as body lotion too, it is something one must keep handy because of its numerous skin benefits. It has skin defending and astringent properties which minimises the early signs of ageing. Our calamine lotion is formulated in such a way that can restore skin’s radiance if applied regularly. Using it daily it will lighten your dark spots and keep your skin hydrated as a consequence you will observe an even skin tone you have ever imagined of!!

Calamine gives instant relief on rashes, spread an adequate amount of it on the affected area 2-3 times a day till the rash/rashes vanish.

Calamine also works great on blemishes, redness of the skin, acne marks or any other dark spot on the face/body. Smear it gently overall your face and leave it overnight. You will see visible results if you apply it consistently.
