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 lotion for mature skin to firm, hydrate, fortify and “lift” skin everywhere, from the arms to the buttocks.
