Do you need a body moisturizer? Well, despite the fact that many men use only a facial moisturizer, there are other parts of our body which can suffer from dry skin and flakiness, especially during the cold months of the year, so it is always a good idea to use a moisturizer on a regular basis. A good body lotion will restore your skin’s natural moisture levels, making it look and feel good at the same time!
Having a healthy skin moisture level will ensure your skin retains its “glow” and elasticity throughout the years, so you can keep your shirt off even when you grow old – just be sure you also work on those rock hard abs!
Here is a look at some great men’s body lotions.
How to Apply Lotion on Your Body
It’s easy, just put a small amount of lotion on the palm of your hands and rub your body, so it spreads evenly. Stop once your skin has absorbed the cream. I recommend working your way from chest to bottom to make things easier.
Use it in the morning and before going to sleep at night.
Amenity The Balm
If you have super-dry skin problems, this may be the product you are looking for, it works wonders getting rid of the flaky and chapped skin, and it’s completely oil-free.
Compared to other alternatives, this lotion feels thick, but don’t let this fool you, it is still easily absorbed, restoring moisture in your skin right away. It is perfect to use on those areas where dry skin just can’t seem to go away, like the elbows, heels, kneecaps, and knuckles. You can use it on your face with great results too!
The formula contains Shea and Mango Seed Butters, Liposomal vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant), nutrient-enriched moisturizers and ingredients that reduce irritation and inflammation.
MenScience Advanced Body Lotion
Menscience has brought the same quality of their face line to their body line. The Advanced Body lotion formula increases your skin’s moisture levels and restores flexibility, making you feel renewed and ready to go on with your day.
This is an oil-free body lotion, has no particular odor and absorbs easily without leaving residues that make your skin feel sticky or oily. MenScience’s cream also acts as a “shield,” protecting your skin against aggressors found on the environment.
It is very helpful to relieve itchiness in the body caused by dry skin.
The formula includes Green Tea Extract, Glycerin, Aloe, Allantoin and Vitamin A, C, D & E.
Jack Black Cool Moisture Body Lotion
Jack Black’s lotion is an ultra lightweight body lotion for men designed to maintain your skin’s moisture levels and restore your natural suppleness, works for all skin types.
Powerful antioxidants enrich the Cool Moisture Body Lotion formula, which protects your skin against the damage of free radicals. It is also rich in linoleic acid, an incredible ingredient in charge of nourishing cell skins that have suffered damage and minimizing the loss of water on the skin.
Other ingredients in the formula include Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Jojoba and Vitamin E.
Unlike the other two body lotions on the list, this one has a light scent, and it smells terrific, women simply love it, and that’s a big plus when buying a men skin care product!
Lubriderm Men’s 3-in-1 Lotion
If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to these lotions, Lubriderm is a great one to keep in mind. It can be used on the body as well as your face or as a post-shave lotion. It may not bring the same results as the products listed above but works fine on people with light dry skin problems.
This lotion is a fragrance-free, oil-free formula that is quickly absorbed by your skin, faster than other creams in the same price range. It has been enriched with Aloe.
Other ingredients in the formula include Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Propylene Glycol and other minerals and essential moisturizers needed by men’s skin.
