Body Lotions That Do More Than Just Moisturize

Body lotion is probably one of the beauty world’s most underrated products. Because we use so much of it on a regular basis, it’s not uncommon for people to buy a big supermarket bottle and not even think twice about it. But what if we told you that your body lotion could do more than just keep your skin from looking ashy or feeling flaky?

Today’s lotions do so much more than just moisturize, they also contain extra ingredients that will effectively target specific areas or issues. You can treat cellulite, firm your skin, fight bacne and even slow down hair growth. This is all really great news if you, like us, you are just a teensy bit lazy!

Are you ready to get the most out of your body lotion? Here are some of our favorite multi-tasking lotions.

Elemis Tan Accelerator – Proving that it is possible to achieve a beautiful tan before even hitting the beach, this lotion contains glucose tyrosinate, an amino acid that encourages the production of melanin. Melanin not only provides your skin with color, but it also protects your skin from the sun, making this perfect for skin that burns easily. It also contains Tahitian Gardenia and jojoba oils to condition and leave your skin beautifully scented.

Bliss fatgirlslim – This cream is basically the lazy girl’s answer to going to the gym. It contains firming and metabolism-boosting caffeine encapsulated in QuSomes, which allow the caffeine to easily penetrate the skin for maximum results. Massage this cream into stubborn spots to smooth out any lumps or bumps.

The Organic Pharmacy Anti-Ageing Firming Body Cream – Sadly, the skin on your body will also succumb to the sands of time. Thankfully, body creams like this can help reverse or at least slow down the process. A blend of toning guarana, detoxifying ivy and horsetail, antioxidant-rich green coffee, firming kigelia, and lifting alpha lipoic acid work together to reverse sun damage and give you the youngest looking skin you’ve had in years.

Dermalogica UltraRich Body Cream – Sometimes a girl just needs a really, really good body moisturizer. This rich cream contains plumping and hydrating hyaluronic acid, and soothing primrose oil for firm, buttery-soft skin. It also contains Dermalogica’s special Environmental Protection Complex to protect your skin from the environment.
