Spring is coming and you are ready.
You’ve exhausted all of your layering options, the cold has lost its novelty and light bright colors are actually appealing. Hell, you’d give anything for a breezy dress and a warm day to wear it on, right about now.
The good news is, your moment is almost here. You best start preparing.
If you are anything like us, the Winter is the time when your skin receives the least amount of love. It makes sense, it rarely sees the light of day when it’s chilly. But transitioning from no air time to Spring skin time is a task not to be tackled by just any old body creme. Which is why we’ve put together three of our favorites.
Whether you’re looking for a little firmness, a lot of luxury or some serious moisturization, we’ve got you covered so you can get uncovered.
- philosophy Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion – An award-winning moisturizer, this lotion is enriched with shea butter and natural oils and softens and soothes, keeping skin velvety, not greasy. It also features a powerful antioxidant blend that helps protect skin from environmental attack and a firming ingredient to help tone. Why we love it: The lotion is thick, the scent is fresh and your skin is taute. What more could you want?
- Costume National Luxury Body Lotion – Body lotion is one of the black holes of grooming—a void of indistinguishable ingredients from which you may never escape. We first tried this one at Elements in Dallas and quickly fell in love. The formula is straightforward, combining three natural moisturizers with a garden-fresh fragrance, and is ultra-luxurious to boot. Why we love it: The scent is heavenly and replaces the need for any other fragrance.
- Frank Body Body Cream – The best thing about Frank Body products is that they are all natural. This body creme smells like frosting while tackling dry skin. In our opinion, this thick and creamy moisturizer (dubbed a creme instead of a lotion for good reason) is the best if you’ve got really dry skin. Why we love it: It keeps skin hydrated without slipping and sliding when the weather gets warmer.
