You can use the cream as a standard body moisturizer if you wish. The cream itself has been designed with lymphatic support in mind, so when you do use it you will still be supporting your lymphatic system and encouraging flow even if you don’t use the gloves alongside. Make sure to always rub the cream on, following the sequence.
Many members like to keep one glove in the shower and complete the sequence (spiky side and magnetic balls) and then finish with the cream before dressing. This is also an acceptable way of following the sequence, there are many ways to incorporate.
