If you want soft, smooth, youthful-looking skin, keeping it hydrated is absolutely essential. Yes, drinking lots of water is important, but so is committing to a skincare routine that locks in moisture all day long.

Just as using a daily moisturizer on your face is super important, so is using body lotion on the rest of your skin. Not only do the best body lotions keep dry, ashy, flaking skin at bay, but they also promote softness and smoothness. If you’re not using a body lotion every time you step out of the shower, do better! Your skin needs TLC, so give it the love it deserves with any one of the incredible (and affordable!) body lotions below.
