Best buy body lotion
It doesn't matter whether you’re looking after your post-holiday tan, or rehydrating your skin in the harsh winter months, moisturising the skin on your body, should be part of your daily routine. It's more important as your skin ages, as it naturally becomes more dehydrated and dry. So if you want to stop the signs of ageing in their tracks, then it’s essential to keep those beautiful limbs well nourished and use a silky cream as part of your beauty regime. Why not get into the habit of using it every morning? After all, it will only take you a couple of minutes. If you can face it, I would also recommend you use a moisturiser in the evening on your chest area, as this is where ageing can be particularly cruel.
The Grown Up Edit have picked the best buys to suite you and every budget.
