How to Put Lotion on Your Back: 3 Ingenious Hacks You'll Wish You Knew Sooner

Have you ever found yourself twisting into a pretzel, just trying to figure out how to put lotion on your back? It’s a stretch that would challenge even the nimblest of yogis.

We’ve all been there—reaching for that elusive spot in the middle of our back, only to be met with the frustration of dry skin just out of touch. It’s an all-too-common dilemma, one that can disrupt a seamless skin care routine and leave you feeling, well, a bit bent out of shape.

But fear not, because Nativa SPA has your back, literally.

With our guidance, this daily task transcends into a moment of luxury, as simple as it is sumptuous. Prepare to discover 3 ingenious ways to ensure that your back is as pampered and hydrated as every other part of your body.

Hack #1: The Right Tools for the Job

When tackling the challenge of moisturizing that hard-to-reach area, having the back applicator for lotion becomes an absolute game-changer.

Consider the lotion back applicator not just a tool, but your ally in achieving full-coverage hydration without the acrobatics. These handy lotion applicators come in various shapes and sizes, designed to extend your reach and glide across your skin, delivering lotion to every inch.

Nativa SPA's answer to this is our luxurious Body Massager, which doubles as a lotion applicator, ensuring that your moisturizing ritual is as relaxing as it is thorough.

With the ease of a professional spa tool, it slips into your self-care routine, turning what was once a stretch into a moment of indulgent ease.

Hack #2: The Plastic Wrap Trick

Unraveling the mystery of how to put lotion on your back without help can be as simple as reaching for the kitchen drawer. Yes, plastic wrap is not just for preserving your leftovers! Here’s a savvy way to ensure those distant back spots get the moisture they crave:

  1. Spread a generous amount of Nativa SPA’s lush lotion across a length of plastic wrap.
  2. Holding both ends of the wrap, position the lotion-covered section against your back.
  3. Move the wrap from side to side, akin to towel-drying, ensuring even coverage.


This technique transforms a piece of plastic wrap into a DIY lotion applicator. Choose a Nativa SPA hydrating firming body cream for its rich texture and delightful fragrance. It absorbs quickly, making it ideal for this method. Our fast-absorbing formula ensures that you can dress immediately after, without the lotion going to waste or sticking to your clothes.

Hack #3: Flexible Moves – Yoga and Stretching

Gaining the flexibility to apply lotion to your back alone can be as simple as incorporating specific yoga stretches into your routine. Try these steps:

  1. Stand straight, lift your right hand, bend the elbow, and try to reach the center of your back.
  2. With your left hand, reach up from below to meet the right or to get as close as possible.
  3. Repeat with the opposite arm.


After stretching, your back is primed for lotion. Nativa SPA lotions, with their relaxing properties, are a perfect post-stretching treat, soothing your muscles and moisturizing your skin. If you haven’t tried any of our lotions before, we proudly recommend looking into an anti-aging firming body lotion.

Consistent back moisturizing is key to preventing dry skin and can be effortlessly accomplished with these clever methods.
