Aside from sun protection, moisturizer is arguably the most important element of any skin-care routine. “Moisturizer doesn’t just add water back into your skin, it also traps in the water you already have to plump it up and protect it,” Mona Gohara, a board-certified dermatologist at Yale University, previously told Allure. But try as we might, so often, the skin-softening process ends at our necks.
That is, until now. It’s time to heed expert advice and find the body moisturizer that’s going to make every inch of your skin happy. “Your skin absolutely needs moisturizer,” says Gohara. “Your skin is the biggest organ in your body. It’s not bloody or gutsy, but it’s still an organ, and organs need water.”
The easiest way to get the rest of your body in on the hydrating action? Slather on a luscious lotion that’s formulated specifically for dry, tired limbs. Whether you prefer a frill-free body lotion, a luxurious cream, a lightweight oil, or a rich balm, these products are guaranteed to wrap your skin below the chin in some serious TLC.
