If you tend to dodge super hydrating body moisturizers out of fear of extra-emollient formulas leaving your skin feeling oily and sticky, it’s time to conquer your fears and invest in a lightweight yet a nourishing product that will revive dry skin without the side effects—-and yes, this is possible. We get it—one wants to feel like their entire body’s been covered in an excessively oily cream—especially if you’re prone to sweating or live in a hot climate.
Finding a solid body lotion that strikes the perfect balance of being hydrating enough to keep your skin hydrated, firm, and flake-free but still lightweight enough to feel comfortable on the skin can be a tricky endeavor, but there are actually plenty of formulas that strike the perfect balance between the two extremes. Finding this happy medium is key to keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy without making you feel like a straight-up oil slick all day long.
