If the body lotion which you just bought, is too watery, pour the lotion in a bowl for a few days and let the lotion evaporate.
The Mystery of the Watery Body Lotion
Have you ever noticed that your body lotion sometimes gets watery? It’s not just you — it happens to a lot of people. In fact, this phenomenon is so common that there’s even a name for it: “lotion separation.” But why does it happen, and is there anything you can do to prevent it? Let’s take a closer look.
The Science of Lotion Separation
Lotion separation occurs when the oils in the lotion start to separate from the water. This can happen for a number of reasons, but one of the most common is simply because the lotion has gotten too old. As lotions age, they become less stable, and the oils and water start to break down.

Another reason your lotion might be separating is because it’s not being stored properly. If you leave your lotion out in a hot bathroom or in direct sunlight, the heat can cause the ingredients to break down and separate. Similarly, if you store your lotion in a very cold environment (like the fridge), that can also cause it to separate.
The best way to prevent your lotion from separating is to store it in a cool, dark place—somewhere like a cabinet or drawer. And if you’re not sure how long ago you bought your lotion, it’s probably best to just go ahead and buy a new one. After all, there’s no point in using something that might not work as well as it should.
Why is my lotion watery?
When you pour the lotion in a bowl to allow it evaporating the excess water, just leave it on room temperature. There’s no need to put it on the heat of the sun or to try to speed up the process with any extreme measures. This way you can avoid damaging the composition of the lotion.

What instead of body lotion?
The body lotion can also be replaced with the oils we have at home. All you need is olive oil or linseed oil, coconut oil and vitamin A + E capsules. If we want to have a thicker balsam, we do it in the proportions: 2 parts coconut oil and 1 part oil / linseed oil. If we like more pouring balms, we give coconut oil and oil / linseed oil in equal proportions.
How to prepare such a balsam?
First, we are going to melt coconut oil in a water bath. When it has gently cooled down but is still sparse, pour linseed oil or olive oil it it. Mix, pour into a high dish and put in the fridge. When the oils are concentrated, we add the A + E vitamins – 3-4 capsules are enough. Then mix the whole to obtain a smooth consistency, translate to the jar and ready. Balsam moisturizes and spreads nicely. If we want it to smell, we add a few drops of the selected essential oil.
