The 17 Best Body Lotions for Aging Skin
From the L’Oreal Portfolio of Brands
Navigating the aisles for the perfect lotion that targets your concerns can be daunting. But worse than that is spending your hard-earned cash on skin care products that don’t meet your expectations. That said, you can’t leave your skin high and dry (pun intended), especially if you’re looking to ward off signs of aging. Moisturizers trap water in your skin, which can give it a plumper, more youthful appearance. As such, you want to make sure you’re not skimping on using it from head to toe. To help cut down your search time, we’re sharing the 17 best body lotions for aging skin—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—ahead.
KIEHL’S CRÈME DE CORPS
As you age, your oil-producing glands become less active and your skin can become drier as a result. As such, the Mayo Clinic suggests choosing an oil-based moisturizer to help hold in moisture and prevent flaky skin. Often times “oil-based” products get a bad rap for leaving behind a greasy residue, but that’s not the case for Kiehl’s Crème de Corps. Formulated with skin-nurturing ingredients like sweet almond oil and avocado oil, you can expect its thick and elegant formula to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth, and beautifully moisturized.

CERAVE RENEWING SA LOTION
We like turning to CeraVe products in times of dryness because their products contain the essential ceramides that healthy skin needs to help restore its natural protective barrier. One of our favorites among the range? CeraVe’s SA Lotion for rough and bumpy skin. This skin-smoothing lotion— enhanced with 3 essential ceramides, salicyclic acid, and vitamin D— exfoliates and moisturizes the skin to a smooth finish.

LA ROCHE-POSAY LIPIKAR BALM AP+ BODY CREAM
New studies have shown that in very dry skin conditions the skin microbiome can become unbalanced, and prebiotics can help rebalance it. A healthy microbiome is an importance aspect to skin health, so coating your body in a prebiotic lotion is just what extra dry skin needs to feel replenished again.That’s where La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar Balm AP+ Body Cream comes in. Ideal for dry skin conditions, it’s formulated with the brand’s prebiotic thermal water and can provide long-lasting hydration.

SKINCEUTICALS BODY RETEXTURING TREATMENT
Natural aging, along with wear and tear from daily activities, can wreak havoc on the skin’s texture and cause rough, dry skin on the elbows, knees, and heels. Thankfully we can turn to products like SkinCeuticals Body Retexturing Treatment enhanced with replenishing ingredients to get our skin back in good shape. Even those with visibly dry and flaky skin can reap the full benefits from this body lotion. It activates skin’s regeneration response by promoting exfoliation while simultaneously hydrating rough body textures to improve radiance and smoothness.

KIEHL’S DELUXE HAND AND BODY LOTION WITH ALOE VERA & OATMEAL
If you’re in the market for a body lotion with a texture that’s lightweight and soothing, we recommend Kiehl’s Deluxe Hand and Body Lotion with Aloe Vera and Oatmeal. It’s a promising choice for relieving dry skin on the body and hands. Since wrinkles are the most prominent on the hands, it’s important to habitually seal in surface moisture with a silky cream like this one, along with using broad-spectrum sunscreen.
LA ROCHE-POSAY LIPIKAR LOTION
Often times those deeply hydrating lotions can be notorious for leaving behind greasy residue. Luckily with La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar Lotion, this isn’t the case at all. Not only is the formula lightweight and fast-absorbing, the texture is also non-greasy. It’s formulated with the exclusive La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water, glycerin, and niacinamide, and provides the skin with all-day hydration, as well as replenishes essential skin lipids.
