When we think about skincare this time of year, the number one factor is usually sun protection. But summer skin still craves moisture! I’ve rounded up my favorite moisturizers to quench dry skin any time of year.
MALIN+GOETZ Neroli Hand+Body Lotion, $34
I love this lightweight and non-greasy moisturizer for summer. Founders Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz produce their all-natural products in their vintage-feel New York apothecary, so you can feel good about what you’re putting on your skin and where it’s coming from.
Kiehl’s Vanilla & Cedarwood Hand & Body Lotion, $26
I’m a huge fan of Kiehl’s products and recently tried their new scented body lotions full of shea butter and botanical oils to care for your skin. This scent was my favorite. It’s also available in Fig Leaf and Sage, which is a great unisex scent.
Lalicious Sugar Reef Body Butter, $25
This all-natural formula has an addictive tropical scent and a label with ingredients you can actually pronounce. Aloe and Vitamin E smooth skin for up to 24 hours.
Body Shop Jumbo Mango Body Butter, $19
Body Shop’s body butters are a cult favorite…everyone has their favorite scent! The ultra-rich formula is luxurious to apply and will leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
Booth’s 4-in-1 Multi-Action Body Lotion Vanilla Butter, $9.99
This delicious smelling lotion pampers your skin with all the ingredients found in the best facial moisturizers including skin-firming caffeine and essential oils.
Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Lotion, $8.49
After trying so many lotions for extremely dry skin, I still come back to this vitamin-rich drugstore find. If your skin is sensitive to fragrance and needs a little extra TLC, slather this on all over. It’s extra nourishing if you apply to damp skin after the shower.
Queen Helene Cocoa Butter, $3.99
This inexpensive find is an excellent after sun moisturizer because it quenches dry skin and smells like summer!
