Secrets to Sensational Summer Skin
You want: Skin that looks soft and supple.
How to get it: The best new moisturizers come in a light oil form, leaving a slightly scented gleam on your skin all day long.
What to look for: Pick your favorite on the basis of the texture you prefer: liquid, spray, or cream. Liquids provide the most sheen and will draw extra attention to your arms and legs, whereas spray oils are light enough for everyday use. Cream oil is heavier, best for dry skin.
How to use: Apply body oil right after showering or bathing, when the skin is slightly damp, for optimum hydration. And remember: A little goes a long way!
Tip: Instead of perfume, try scented body oil for a subtle yet tropical pick-me-up.Our Favorite Hydrators
