Body Lotion With Benefits: Get Tighter, Smoother Skin

Make Your Body Lotion Work Double Duty

By Courtney Leiva

Body lotions pretty consistently get the hydrating job done, but when you’re looking for some extra skincare benefits it’s important to select a body lotion or oil that can work double-duty.

Whether you want firmer thighs, a stretch mark-free stomach, or a cooling effect, try adding one of these body lotions to your daily skincare regimen.

Ready to enhance your dull and lifeless skin?

Here are the body lotions we’re using this summer…

For Pesky Stretch Marks…
No matter your age or skin type, stretch marks can strike at any moment. To tighten up sagging and stretched out skin, try CeraVe Intensive Stretch Marks Cream ($15.99). It has a unique blend of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and botanicals to minimize the appearance of stretch marks overtime.

For Smoother Skin…
Skin super dry and your regular body lotion isn’t cutting it? Give your body lotion a boost by first applying L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil ($44). It employs natural almond oil to keep your skin supple and velvety smooth.

For Extra Elasticity…
For more supple skin check out the Acure Moroccan Argan Oil Lotion ($9). It pumps collagen and organic argan oil into the skin for rejuvenated elasticity – plus it only uses natural ingredients!

For Some Firming Action…
Working effectively on all skin types and textures, the Mio The Activist Firming Archive Body Oil ($48) not only helps to tighten and tone skin, but also absorbs quickly without any unwanted shine or greasy residue.

For A Daily Body Gel…
Need relief from summer’s heat? For a fast burst of refreshment, make the refreshing Phytomer Tonic Body Gel ($73) a staple in your beauty arsenal.
