The skin on our body can get very dry in the summer especially when we are in the water, sweating and exercising more. Most of us need an extra boost to achieve smooth and silky skin. The best body moisturizers soothe and treat damaged skin as well as lock in moisture by delivering essential vitamins. The five moisturizers below are my favorites and work very well to rehydrate the skin. Remember to always exfoliate in the shower with a good scrub three times a week and to apply the product right when you get out of the shower or bath for best results.
Beautycounter's all natural Body Butter uses the power of Mongongo oil which is a naturally vitamin E packed nutrient that acts as a UV protectant and even repairs damaged skin. Together Mongongo oil and shea butter hydrate and nourish thirsty skin. This creamy lotion can soothe irritated spots or be used all over as a daily moisturizer.
For all of you who swear by the magic of coconut oil, here it is, bottled and sprayable from CapriClear. This spray is 100% coconut oil and is colorless, odorless and amazing for your skin. Coconut oil is great at locking in moisture all over as well as treating eczema, sensitive skin and even reducing appearance of stretch marks and scars. I also use it in my hair by spraying a bit on the palms of my hands and then applying it to the ends.
This yellow, creamy moisturizer is a favorite with dermatologists and has a cult following. The rich body moisturizer delivers hydration for beautiful silky skin all over. In just one use, it rehydrates dry skin and leaves it looking and feeling super moist.
This smooth body butter is a moisturizing powerhouse with ten different plant oils and extracts including Argan oil. Argan oil is clinically proven to rehydrate the flakiest of skin and lock in moisture to improve skin's smoothness. This product does not include parabens or artificial fragrances and has a natural citrus scent that is pleasing.
The Advanced Therapy Lotion by Lubriderm absorbs very quickly and deeply moisturizes the skin for 24 hours. It's the greatest drug store product to rehydrate even the driest of skin while enriching it with vitamins E and B5. It also dries quickly without leaving skin feeling greasy and sticky. My entire family uses it every day!
