Our Favorite Lightweight Body Moisturizers for Summer
Having nourished, moisturized and supple skin is a must all year round. While we bathe in our rich balms and heavy creams during the winter, they can feel too thick in the summer heat. When the temperatures rise, our body-care collection consists of fast-absorbing body lotions with a barely-there feel. Say goodbye to dry patches and cracked skin because we’re rounding up our favorite summer body lotions that are currently available on Amazon, ahead.
In search of an all-in-one product that is great for the face, body and hands? CeraVe has you covered. This everyday lotion is made with hyaluronic acid and three essential ceramides to provide long-lasting hydration. It’s fragrance- and oil-free, non-comedogenic and perfect for all skin types.
Just because you want a lightweight feel doesn’t mean your lotion has to feel any less luxurious. Case in point: This intensely hydrating La Roche-Posay option, which is non-sticky, non-greasy and fast-absorbing. Formulated with shea butter, niacinamide and glycerin, the cream draws water into the skin’s surface to leave your body feeling smooth.
For a moisturizer that works just as well as it smells, try the Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Frappé Body Lotion. With a blend of almond oil, marzipan, tonka bean and vanilla, the nutrient-rich moisturizer gives your skin a subtly sweet scent. It’s also sulfate-, paraben-, petrolatum- and artificial color-free.
While you load up on anti-aging face creams, it’s important not to neglect the skin below your chin in your youth-preserving routine. For an anti-aging body lotion, we’ve been loving this option from Vichy. The cream works to firm and hydrate dry skin. Plus, it won’t leave behind a greasy or oily residue.
This rich, yet lightweight lotion contains pure hemp seed oil that can help regulate the body’s oil production and moisturize without clogging pores, making it perfect for humid summer days. While we love how nourishing this cream feels, our favorite part is the understated floral-banana scent.
