But actually, moisturising your body is so important. For starters, it will help soothe any dryness-related irritation and keep skin feeling comfortable. Second, keeping moisture levels up generally keeps skin looking and feeling softer and healthier. But for me, the most important reason to be applying body cream every day is all in the self-care aspect. Taking just a couple of minutes out of my day to apply body cream is my nonnegotiable beauty ritual.
Because of this, I’m picky when it comes to my body lotions. They have to deliver just the right amount of hydration without leaving my skin feeling greasy or sticky, they should be easy to apply and absorb in no time at all, and crucially, they should smell pleasant without being too overpowering. Over the years, it’s safe to say that I have tried virtually every formula out there and have collected an elite edit of the best body lotions around for silky-soft limbs.
