No lotion, oils or lubricants on P2!
It is important to stay away from these items while on this program. This includes lotions, oils or lubricants. This also includes all oil-based cosmetics. Fats, oils, creams, lotions and ointments applied to the skin are absorbed and interfere with weight reduction just as if they had been eaten. The body will stop burning fat and digest these oils instead. Using these items can stall weight loss for 1-3 days.
Watch all cosmetics. Lipsticks and powders are fine. You may also use oil-free foundation or a mineral powder is a good substitute.
Here are a few items you can use if you have dry skin.
An oil-free all over body lotion as well as great hand treatment. Inexpensive, oil-free and does not leave hands with a greasy feel. You will find this at WalMart, Walgreens, etc.
Alba Oil-free Lotion
A daily moisturizer that infuses the skin with rejuvenating aloe vera. Available from your local health food store or a store such as Whole Foods is a great alternative. Make sure you check the ingredients for oils of any type from of any Alba products or ask someone at the health food store to advise you.
Mineral Oil (baby oil)
This works well applying it to your body after a shower or a bath. You will find this at WalMart, Target, CVS, etc.
