Have you been told to lighten up lately? The phrase is fre­quently used in con­junc­tion with hu­mour when we don’t get a joke, in re­la­tion to dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions when we take our­selves too se­ri­ously and in ac­cor­dance with the weather, when we lit­er­ally swap our win­ter wardrobe for looser, airier cloth­ing. Well, with spring tem­per­a­tures on the rise, you can now ap­ply it to your head-to-toe body

“We have a milder cli­mate now,” ex­plains Char­maine Cooper, the ed­u­ca­tion man­ager for Der­ma­log­ica and the in­ter­na­tional Der­mal in­sti­tute Canada. “That means we’re be­ing more ac­tive and need to lighten up on the emol­lients and bar­ri­ers we use to shield our

bod­ies from the out­side world.”
