15 Anti-Aging Body Lotions to Keep Your Skin Looking and Feeling Its Best

Powerful actives are not just for the neck up.

By Lourdes Avila Uribe

I will admit that despite a single-minded obsession with skincare, I often forget about the skin on my body from the chest down. After a multi-step face routine, the last thing I want to do is worry about the rest of my skin. And while using SPF every day is the number one thing we can do to keep skin young and healthy, there also happens to be an abundance of anti-aging body lotions full of active ingredients that can aid in keeping skin youthful, too.

Up until recently, I was under the impression that body lotions that were advertised as “anti-aging” were a bit of a scam. But interestingly enough, most of these body lotions use the same ingredients that we look for when trying to find anti-aging creams for the face. As luck would have it, powerful actives like retinol, ceramides, peptides, squalane, caffeine, and more are not just for the neck up. They are all present in body lotions and work to actively keep the skin fresh, hydrated, and supple.
