Byrdie / Chloe JeongNo matter what your daily routine is, everyone needs a good body lotion in their beauty arsenal. Whether you slather it on after a shower, before bed, following a day in the sun, or when dry skin crops up, you should have a go-to bottle (or tube or tub) on hand.According to licensed esthetician Dana Murray of Babe + Beauty, daily application is ideal. “The skin on the body has fewer oil glands than the face, so it can dry out a lot quicker,” she explains.Body lotions have one main purpose: to moisturize your skin. With that said, some do a better job than others because they contain hydrating ingredients like nourishing plant oils, earth-derived butters, and humectants such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin. Some formulas work overtime to address other skin concerns like eczema, chronic dryness, and loss of elasticity, while others contain SPF to safeguard against sun damage.When shopping for body care products, you’ll want to consider the ingredients, consistency, scent (or lack thereof), and skin type. You should also look at the amount, as you can expect to go through it much faster than your face moisturizer.Scroll down for the best body lotions for every, well, body.
