For Soft Skin, Try These Body Lotion-and-Oil PairingsSeptember 02, 2020
Moisturizing your skin is vital for keeping your skin barrier hydrated and smooth no matter the time of year, but it’s especially important when the weather gets cold and dry. Instead of simply relying on your typical moisture creams, we recommend layering body oils and lotions, which can further combat dry, cracked skin. Ahead, we rounded up our favorite body oil-and-lotion combinations to help get you started.
Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Dry Body Oil and Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Lightweight Body Lotion
For a velvety soft feel, we recommend pairing this sweet-smelling body oil with its counterpart body lotion. The oil has a mixture of squalane and grapeseed oil that absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves it feeling supple and smooth. Start by spritzing this onto the skin, and then follow up with the moisturizer that has jojoba butter, olive fruit oil and sweet almond oil. You won’t be able to get enough of this combo!
Carol’s Daughter Monoi Body Oil Spray Sunscreen SPF 30 and Carol’s Daughter Monoi Body Cream Hydrate and Replenish
This duo is sure to zap away any dry skin thanks to its shared ingredient, monoi oil. The body spray combines a lightweight mixture of coconut, monoi and olive oils, in addition to sunscreen for nourishing sun protection. Layer the cream butter body formula on top for a super soft and non-greasy finish.
Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Sol Oil and Sol de Janeiro Brazillian Bum Bum Cream
The Bum Bum Sol Oil and Bum Bum Cream are nourishing powerhouses. The oil has a luminizing finish and contains SPF 30 to help protect skin from the sun, while the cream is infused with cupuaçu butter, açai oil and coconut oil to moisturize.
MUTHA Body Oil and MUTHA Body Butter
This super luxe body oil-and-lotion combo is perfect for evening out your skin texture and reducing dryness. The oil is formulated with botanical seed oils, including rosehip, to act as the ultimate skin emollient. After applying, add a layer of the body lotion that’s loaded with moisturizing shea, cocoa and mango butters.
