It’s okay to have a file grooming routineThere is one product category that should be a non-negotiable part of your self-care: body lotions.
Quality body creams are especially important during the dry winter months, but to keep your skin healthy, a daily moisturizer should be used throughout the year. The best time to apply moisturizer is right after you shower, when your skin is still damp (this locks in moisture and also counteracts the drying effects of rinsing with hot water).
When comparing options, look for emollient ingredients like shea butter, which softens skin and slows the evaporation of water from your body, or humectants like glycerin, which draws moisture from the air to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Aside from that, there are many different options to suit all skin types, scent preferences, and budgets.
Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite men’s body lotions.
