What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

How to choose the best body lotion for your skin type

Investing in a body care routine is key to getting supple and radiant skin. Body lotions are an important part of the routine, thus proper research about your skin type, concerns and environment is needed before picking one. Keeping in mind your preferred formulations, ingredients and other aspects also help in shortlisting the right body lotion for you.  

1. Understanding your skin type

The first step is analysing your skin type before shopping for your next body lotion.

  1. If your skin feels tight, itchy and parched, you may have dry skin. Your skin may also appear flaky and cracked due to the lack of moisture.
  1. If you have to tackle excess sebum production and clogged pores daily, then you may have oily skin.
  1. If some areas of your skin feel dry and some are oily, then you may have combination skin.

2. Looking for the right ingredients

For dry skin people, body lotions enriched with heavily moisturising ingredients like shea butter, argan oil and aloe vera work best. If you have oily skin, then a body lotion with lightweight and exfoliating ingredients will suit you better. Look out for body lotions with salicylic acid, glycolic acid and niacinamide.

3. Formulation matters

Those with oily skin can opt for lighter, gel-based or serum-based formulations. Buttery formulations that are emulsion-based are ideal for dry and dehydrated skin. Combination skin may benefit the most from lightweight lotions that are enriched with oil-based ingredients for intense hydration.

4. Weather conditions

Your geographical location also has a say in the kind of body lotion you should use. If you live in a humid region, then you should use gel and water-based body lotions to keep your skin moisturised. However, if you live in a cold region with dry weather, then rich formulations and emulsion-based body lotions will work best for you. These types of lotions will be your holy grail for keeping your skin healthy and hydrated.

5. Body lotions for allergy or acne-prone skin

For those with bacne or rashes, ingredients like salicylic acid can help unclog pores and reduce acne breakouts, while soothing ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile can calm irritation and redness.
