What’s your body care routine like? While I take my skin care routine very seriously, I often neglect my body care routine – but it’s time to change that. I usually reach for body lotions during winter more than I do in the summer months. However, it’s important to keep your skin moisturized no matter the season.
Applying rich body lotions in summer can make your skin feel sticky, especially if you live somewhere that’s quite humid. Instead of going for body lotions with a rich formula, opt for ones that are lightweight but still give you the right amount of moisture.
Check out some of our body lotion recommendations that’ll keep your skin hydrated through the rest of summer without leaving a greasy feeling:
As a body lotion that’s packed with EWG-verified ingredients, Pyunkang Yul’s ATO Moisturizing Soothing Gel Lotion ensures that you won’t have to worry about skin irritation. This lotion is perfect if you have very dry skin. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, green tea extract and ceramides, the ATO Moisturizing Soothing Gel Lotion can be counted on to deliver the perfect amount of moisture while fortifying your skin barrier.
If you have keratosis pilaris, which usually appear on your legs or upper arms, then it’s best to go for a body lotion with exfoliating ingredients like AHA. I’ve had keratosis pilaris since my childhood years and I find that using an exfoliating body lotion works best at keeping my skin smooth.
The Relax Day AHA Exfoliating Body Lotion from Korean beauty brand VILLAGE 11 FACTORY is formulated with 12% AHA and hyaluronic acid to gently exfoliate while nourishing your skin at the same time. It’s even perfect to use on hot days thanks to its non-greasy finish.
A great solution for treating body acne is using body products with acne-fighting ingredients such as salicylic acid and BHAs. It’s also important to use these body products consistently if you want to see results.
TIA’M’s Anti Blemish Body Lotion Back & Chest is loaded with AHA, BHA and calamine to help clear back and chest acne. The formula also contains niacinamide and alpha-bisabolol to help fade spots or scars that often accompany acne. The best part about this lotion is that it absorbs quickly and leaves your skin feeling moisturized without any stickiness.
If you like a body lotion that not only moisturizes your skin but also leaves it smelling incredible, then KLAVUU’s Relief Pearlsation Signature Body Lotion is the perfect choice for you.
Thanks to its nourishing abilities and fruity scent, you won’t be able to resist applying this body lotion throughout summer. Formulated with shea butter, pearl extract and white flower complex, this body lotion leaves your skin feeling nourished and extra radiant for summer. You can even wear it in place of your perfume because it just smells that good!
Looking for a body lotion that moisturizes your skin while keeping it firm? Look no further, RNW’s DER. THERAPY Blanc Ampoule In Body Lotion is all you need. Featuring a soft and light texture, this body lotion absorbs almost instantly and leaves your skin feeling softer and looking luminous.
Its scent is also ideal for summer: it starts with top notes of apple and cherry combined with cherry blossom, jasmine and rose, and a base of amber and ambergris. Does it smell like something worthy of your summer body care collection?
Another body lotion that smells amazing is AROMATICA’s Blossoming Body Lotion. Packed with jasmine and neroli extracts and oils, this body lotion features an elegant scent that’s not too overpowering. Apply it as soon as you step out of the shower while your skin is still damp to ensure long-lasting moisture. Plus, its sleek and minimalist packaging will look good on any vanity!
