In addition to the classic hydrating ingredients, body moisturizers can also sometimes contain light exfoliating ingredients such as glycolic acid that help dissolve rough or dead skin cells on the epidermis, which in turn help the skin better absorb said hydrating ingredients.
Shea butter, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, ceramides, and urea are classic hydrators that not only help the skin retain moisture — and in some cases help absorb moisture in the air, which is why you should always apply your lotion right after the shower when the bathroom is still steamy — but also help soothe dry, flaking skin.
But if you’re turned off body lotion due to the feeling of a thick cream on your body, fear not, because there are so many different types of moisturizers that’ll keep your skin hydrated without feeling sticky.
Not only will it make your skin glow naturally, but if you’re a fake-tan wearer, using body lotion consistently ensures that your faux glow looks better and lasts longer.
Make dry, flaky skin a thing of the past. https://t.co/w5rTAym06B— POPSUGAR Beauty (@POPSUGARBeauty) November 26, 2019
