Though the vast majority of skin care is focused on the face, you can’t forget the rest of your body! Skin is our largest organ, so we have to treat it with TLC. To me, this means organic and natural body lotions. Why does it matter? Because whatever you put ON your skin, gets absorbed INTO your body, leading to all sorts of problems.

You usually find yummy organic handmade body at most large farmers markets, but in case you don’t have a good one near you, here are a few of my tried-and-true favorites that you can get online or at the mall.

Lavanila The Healthy Body Butter: One of my favorite lines EVER, Lavanila Body Butter is full of antioxidants and essentials oils in a shea and cocoa butter base. The scents include Vanilla Lavender, Vanilla Coconut (my favorite!) and Vanilla Lemon. The best thing is? No petrochemicals, propylene glycol, mineral oils, silicone or synthetic dyes! Available at Sephora.

Nourish Organic Body Lotion: This brand claims their lotion is organic food for the skin, and they may be right. This almond vanilla lotion smells like dessert, but it does a body good with rice protein, acai, Vitamin E and aloe. What it doesn’t have is parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, preservatives, silicones, propylene glycol, mineral oils, sulfates or synthetic dyes. Plus it’s cruelty free! Available online.

L’Occitane Lavender Organic Certified Body Lotion: This lotion from my favorite airport duty-free shop brand has a heavenly, peaceful scent and it leaves skin super silky. You’ll feel transported to the lavender fields of Provence! Pick it up at a L’Occitane store or at the airport next time you travel.
