What Is The Best Body Lotion For Mature Skin?
Smoothing on moisturizer can feel so satisfying, but what happens when your favorite body lotion can no longer cut it? Since collagen production slows and our sebaceous glands produce less oil as we get older, we may need to level up when it comes to lotion.
Below we've listed some of the best body lotions for mature skin that can make a world of difference.

1. Candlenut Body Creme
When it comes to aging skin, we often struggle to maintain the elasticity and suppleness we had in our younger years.
While we will inevitably experience natural changes, we don't have to throw our arms in the air and surrender to Father Time. With a little help from Mother Nature, we can push back, reclaim, and redefine our beauty - both inside and out.
JUARA Candlenut Body Creme brings beautifying botanicals together to rejuvenate your skin and indulge the senses. As you smooth it on you'll see how it immediately makes skin moisturized. The velvety whipped texture and tropical aroma round out this luxurious experience.
This creamy concoction strengthens the skin barrier and delivers deep hydration.
Candlenut oil is one of the best body oils and allows for quick absorption, given its ideal mix of omega fatty acids. The rich illipe butter also brings a major dose of moisture, and that's in addition to nourishing and antioxidant avocado and carrot seed oils.
Sea algae and oat bran both bring moisture that plumps up skin so it shows fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Rice bran oil helps maintain elasticity.
Ultimately, you'll have protected, smooth, and hydrated skin. This award-winning formula is a fan favorite and especially prized among those with a dry skin type.
2. Miracle Tea Recovery Creme
This cream is named for the kombucha it contains, which is known as "miracle tea" in Indonesia, due to its surprising ability to minimize fine lines and boost radiance. Bursting with vitamin B, it brings a renewed level of vitality to the skin.
Kombucha has naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acids that provide gentle exfoliation, clearing away dead skin cells, sebum, and dirt. This enables smoother, fresher skin to emerge.
The Miracle Tea Recovery Creme also contains ingredients like vitamin C, ginger, Colubrina bark, and a plant-based retinol alternative.
The unique plant-based retinol alternative is derived from the Bidens pilosa plant and achieves similar results as retinol. It smooths, brightens, and firms the surface, reducing premature signs of aging. However, unlike retinoids, it works without causing redness and irritation, so it can be used day or night.
Colubrina bark improves the skin’s ability to transport water to the epidermis, making for better retention of moisture and overall hydration.
By using a stabilized, long-release form of vitamin C in this formula, we've ensured that it not only brightens skin, but maintains its mojo for much longer than regular vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
Miracle Tea Recovery Creme will work wonders on dry and very dry skin, boosting that bounce-back time, which is critical for dealing with sun damage and other environmental aggressors like pollution.
3. CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion
CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion frequently finds a spot on lists of best body lotions, and that's for a few reasons.
It contains hydrating hyaluronic acid, which draws moisture to the uppermost layer of the skin and strengthens the moisture barrier. While our skin produces hyaluronic acid, it's another one of those substances that slow down in production over time, so a little help from body lotion is more than welcome.
Another reason this is an ideal body lotion for aging skin? The presence of ceramides. Ceramides are fats or lipids found in our skin cells, and they are critical for keeping germs out and moisture in.
This lightweight moisturizer spreads on easily and absorbs into the skin quickly. Because it is sulfate and fragrance free, it generally works well for those sensitive skin types.
You can find it just about anywhere and use it any time your skin's feeling dry. It's a great non-greasy go-to body lotion.
4. Coconut Illipe Hand and Nail Balm
Since hands are often the hardest hit by early signs of aging, we'd be remiss not to mention Coconut Illipe Hand and Nail Balm in our list of the best anti-aging body lotions.
Whether it's due to sun exposure or frequent washing and drying, our hard-working hands could use a little help. In fact, when you spend some extra time nourishing your hands and nails it really makes your whole body feel better. It's self-care you don't want to skip.
JUARA’s ultra-rich Coconut Illipe Hand and Nail Balm works to strengthen your natural nails, repair damaged cuticles, and replenish dry skin to improve signs of aging.
This award-winning balm has soothing ingredients like coconut oil and buriti oil as well as mangosteen butter, which helps bring about soft and supple skin.
Oat bran, with its anti-inflammatory properties, can soothe and smooth skin, while sea algae almost appears to turn back the hands of time. It's a potent antioxidant that also has UV-absorbing potential and amino acids that help with hydration and brightening.
This balm minimizes wrinkles and sunspots, and also strengthens nails. The sweet aroma of coconuts and tropical flowers tops it all off.
If you're doing your best to maintain healthy hygiene habits but don't want to over-dry your hands, check out our Healthy Hands Trio, which also includes our Candlenut Bar Soap and Hand Sanitizer. It makes a great gift for a friend in the healthcare field for sure!
5. Strivectin Crepe Control Tightening Body Cream
Crepey skin is one of the most common complaints from folks as they age. Gravity is apparently still a thing, as is loss of moisture and elasticity.
Even though these changes to our bodies are expected, it doesn't necessarily make them more welcome. Luckily, we can take matters into our own hands and address some of these issues associated with aging skin.
Strivectin's Crepe Control Tightening Body Cream has zoned in on this particular problem of skin elasticity and texture. It uses peptides that tighten and firm, along with other moisturizing ingredients like shea butter that make the surface more supple.
This anti aging body cream also brings about more brightness with antioxidant turmeric root extract. Jojoba seed extract also improves tone and strengthens skin as well, with its essential fatty acids and vitamin B complex.
You can boost resilience and radiance with this unique anti-aging formula.
6. Lancôme Nutrix Royal Body Lotion
When searching for a body lotion for aging skin, it's important to seek out a product that delivers intense moisture. You want to keep your skin hydrated and soft.
Similar to the last product on the list, Lancôme's Nutrix Royal Body Lotion utilizes peptides to promote a soft, smooth texture that takes skin back to days gone by.
It contains shea butter, a staple for fighting dry skin, and royal jelly, which is a mega- moisturizer for mature skin.
Chestnut peptides in this body lotion increase the body’s natural lipid production. These essential lipids boost resilience and improve skin texture.
While a fragrance isn't ideal for every skin type, this lotion will work for most skin types and address many visible signs of aging.
7. Supergoop PLAY Everyday Lotion SPF 50 with Sunflower Extract
One of the best ways to protect skin and keep it looking youthful is to avoid over-exposure to the sun. As you probably know, when those UV rays hit the surface of your skin, they send a free-radical fueled chain reaction that wreaks havoc.
Not only will you have to deal with sunburns, but this kind of damage to the epidermis can cause discoloration, wrinkles, and even more serious diseases. Before you leave the comfort of your home for a day outdoors, protect yourself before you wreck yourself.
PLAY Everyday Lotion SPF 50 with Sunflower Extract provides you with sun protection as well as hydrating ingredients like glycerin, a powerful humectant that attracts moisture to the surface of the skin.
This sweat-resistant lotion works for every skin type. It can be used on both body and face without clogging pores. As an added bonus, it's clean and reef friendly!
8. Body Therapy by PCA Skin
Body Therapy by PCA Skin is one of the better anti-aging body lotions out there if your budget allows. It addresses several of the aforementioned concerns of those with mature skin.
This body lotion helps with hydration in a major way. It contains sodium hyaluronate, which prevents water loss just like hyaluronic acid. However, since it has a lower molecular weight than hyaluronic acid it's able to penetrate the epidermis and replenish dry skin.
Also doing that dry skin type a favor is the deeply moisturizing shea butter. It contains vitamin E, which improves the skin's ability to repair itself and defend against environmental damage. Shea butter is also known for making the skin super soft.
The lactic acid in this formula will gently exfoliate and scrub the skin. This aids in the natural process of cell turnover and cell renewal.
If used regularly, this moisturizer may help skin elasticity by boosting collagen production. This, of course, is critical to dealing with the loss of firmness in aging skin.
A lotion like Body Therapy will hydrate and soften the skin all over. To truly lock in the moisture, apply the lotion to slightly damp skin following your bath or shower.
9. Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter
Even though this decadent body lotion is filled with fatty acids and nourishing nutrients, it even works for oily skin. So whether you tend toward the dry side or have combination skin, this body butter will balance you out and keep you hydrated and happy.
If you struggle with skin that looks or feels dull and lifeless, Josie Maran's Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter could provide a perfect lifeline. It's a luxurious way to return a little life and luster to your skin.
Natural oils like pure argan oil and conditioning avocado oil leave the skin feeling soft and supple. Argan oil is a great source of those essential fatty acids that fortify skin and support the natural moisture barrier.
Shea butter, the well-known emollient we've mentioned many times before, brings additional moisture to the mix.
The antioxidants in the white tea extract take this buttery blend to the next level by protecting skin and addressing some of the damage already done.
With regular use, you're likely to see an improvement in skin tone and moisture retention.
10. Cetaphil Eczema Restoraderm Soothing Moisturizer
Cetaphil Eczema Restoraderm Soothing Moisturizer is a body lotion that has earned a spot in our list of favorites. It features skin-supporting ceramides that boost the health of cells and also prevent moisture loss.
This moisturizing complex also includes colloidal oatmeal that calms irritated skin. That's one reason why it's highly recommended for those with eczema or itchy skin. Additionally, the fact that it's fragrance-free means people with allergies or sensitivity to smells won't have to worry.
This body lotion harnesses the goodness of nature by incorporating anti-aging ingredients like sweet almond oil, castor oil, jojoba seed oil, grapeseed oil, lavender essential oil, vitamin E, and more.
When you smooth it on you'll be locking in moisture and minimizing the signs of aging you see on your skin.
This lotion gives mature skin a more youthful look, and is one of the preferred picks for people with sensitive skin.
When shopping for anti-aging lotions and other products, you will want to look for hydrating ingredients like glycerin, mineral oil, or plant-based botanicals. It's also important to incorporate a gentle exfoliant like glycolic acid to dissolve dead skin cells and improve skin texture and tone.
Another way to improve the look and feel of your skin is to sleep well, move your body, and consume healthy food.
As the doctor in this video below explains, "eating the rainbow," or consuming fruits and vegetables in a wide array of colors means you'll get a wide range of antioxidants to neutralize free radicals and slow the signs of aging.
So...bon appétit and here's to beautiful skin!
