10 Best Body Lotions for Women Over 60

By Sandra Roussy August 07, 2022 Makeup and Fashion

Moisturized skin not only looks good but feels good. Dry skin can result in premature aging, wrinkles, and uncomfortable itching. Daily moisturizing your skin with a lotion will help keep it soft and supple and also prevent drying and consequent itching.

Many factors can bring on dry skin. Cold winter months, hot summer days, electric heating, certain medications and medical issues. Also, as we age our skin tends to naturally lose moisture.

Body lotions don’t have to break the bank. Many acclaimed moisturizing body lotions can be found in pharmacies under $10. I’ve put together a range of body lotions that I feel are excellent for women over 60.

What to Look for in a Body Lotion

When shopping for a body lotion look for ingredients like:

  • Glycerin
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Ceramides
  • Lipids
  • Vitamin A / Retinoids
  • Vitamin B3 / Niacinamide
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E

Also, look for body lotions that match your skin type. Some body lotions are super hydrating and are good for extra dry skin.

Here is my list of best body lotions for women over 60:

  1. Cetaphil Restoring Lotion
  2. Eucerin Daily Hydration Lotion
  3. Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Advanced Repair
  4. Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion Shea + Enriching Cocoa Butter
  5. Gold Bond Healing Lotion
  6. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
  7. Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Hydrating Body Lotion
  8. La Mer – The Reparative Body Lotion
  9. La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ Intense Repair Moisturizing Body & Face Cream
  10. NIVEA Essentially Enriched Body Lotion

Helpful tip: Apply your body lotion straight after showering or bathing. This way your skin can absorb and lock in the moisture of the lotion.

Hello, your description of these lotions and creams are misleading. You say they are free from parabens, but the Khiehl moisturiser ingredients include methyparaben and propyparaben in the description, and most of the other lotions and creams have petrol derived ingredients as well as paraffin , so I for one will not be purchasing these moisturizers. I use all natural moisturizers, no synthetic ingredients, so read the ingredients list carefully ladies!

J Monk

None of these are cruelty free ☹️

Wendy Hewgill

Yep, not very animal or eco friendly.😕
