The Best Body Lotions for Skin Over 50

Must read

As we age our skin tends to get drier, more fragile and looser, and it’s impossible to completely escape—have you ever heard of a thing called gravity? While we can’t hit pause on our skin at age 20, we can rewind it a few years with the right products. When we think about aging, we often focus on the face, but the skin on our body takes up much more surface area. We’ve rounded up the best body lotions for skin over 50 to firm, hydrate, fortify and “lift” skin everywhere, from the arms to the buttocks.

This anti-aging cream is infused with exciting ingredients like pure glacier water, purslane and white almond and elderberry blossom. Together these ingredients leave skin feeling smoother, firmer and more elastic. Purslane is the star ingredient here, as it helps reduce visible signs of aging.
