You probably know that skincare oils have been having a moment for a while now, and that includes body oil. The newest body oils are far from messy, absorb quickly, and really lock in moisture. You can apply body oil to damp skin to help seal in moisture, and your skin will feel soft and look glowy for hours. That doesn’t mean you need to give up on body lotion and cream, but oils are a nice addition to anyone’s body-care routine. Here, we’re sharing our favorites.
