11 Products That'll Help You Upgrade Your Body-Care Routine This Summer
If you always give your skin-care lineup or makeup bag an edit come summertime, why not apply the task to your body-care routine too?
A new sunscreen is an obvious essential, but long afternoons lounging in the sun or splashing around in salty water may call for a more hydrating body cream or shower gel. If you're planning on exclusively wearing flip-flops this season (we don't blame you), there's a chance you might be in need of a soothing foot soak or a moisturizing balm to address dry or cracked heels.
Need some shopping suggestions? Scroll through this roundup of 11 superstar products that tackle the aforementioned summer body-care situations and more.
Sally Hansen Hydrating Hand Mask
Switch on the TV, set up your at-home manicure station, and then slip a Sally Hansen Hydrating Hand Mask ($5) onto each hand. These single-use gloves are infused with deeply moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E to tackle dryness.
e.l.f. Cosmetics 50 MG CBD Body Cream
Prediction: you probably won't skip postshower moisturizing if you actually like your body cream. If your current tub just isn't doing it for you, try the e.l.f. Cosmetics 50 MG CBD Body Cream ($18). The rich cream is made with ingredients like CBD, argan oil, and shea butter to soothe and hydrate the skin on your arms and legs.
Keys Soulcare Comforting Balm
A multitasking balm is a bathroom counter must have, especially come summer. The Keys Soulcare Comforting Balm ($12) is formulated with avocado oil, shea butter, rose of Jericho, and camellia seed oil to calm and hydrate dry skin on the body. You can use it on chapped lips, dehydrated cuticles, and dry heels in need of TLC.
Naturally London Exhale Detoxifying Foot Soak With Moringa Oil
Pour one tablespoon of the Naturally London Exhale Detoxifying Foot Soak With Moringa Oil ($20) into warm water and let your feet reap the benefits. The blend of Dead Sea salts, epsom salts, and essential oils will soothe and soften your tired, sandal-loving feet.
Megababe Le Tush Clarifying Butt Mask
If hot weather means an increase in butt breakouts or bumps for you, work a butt mask like the Megababe Le Tush Clarifying Butt Mask ($22) into your weekly routine. On top of clarifying the skin via witch hazel, the formula helps to exfoliate the skin thanks to the addition of three different acids and eco-friendly beads.
Keys Soulcare Renewing Hand + Body Wash
The wrong hand and body soap can actually dry out your skin even more. Opt for a more hydrating formula, like the Keys Soulcare Renewing Hand + Body Wash ($24). Keep it on your shower ledge or at your bathroom sink for an enjoyable cleansing experience.
Drunk Elephant Sugared Koffie Almond Milk Body Scrub
The name of this product alone might leave you craving a caffeinated (and whipped-cream-topped) Starbucks bev. The Drunk Elephant Sugared Koffie Almond Milk Body Scrub ($28) is made with sugar to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and almond milk to nourish and moisturize.
e.l.f. Cosmetics Retro Paradise Glow Up Body Oil
If you plan on showing a little bit more skin this summer, work a body highlighter into the mix. The e.l.f. Cosmetics Retro Paradise Glow Up Body Oil ($12) leaves behind the prettiest glow.
Milk Makeup Cooling Water Natural Deodorant
An ideal summer invention, the Milk Makeup Cooling Water Natural Deodorant ($16) offers a refreshing gel application experience and works to prevent underarm odor and wetness via an enzyme complex and kaolin clay.
Kate Somerville Daily Deflector Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40 PA++++
SPF is an all-year skin-care nonnegotiable! Be sure to replace last summer's expired tube or bottle with a new formula that will shield your skin from the sun. Consider the Kate Somerville Daily Deflector Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40 PA++++ ($50), which also helps protects against blue light and damage from pollution.
