As previously mentioned, skin care on your body is just as important as the care of the skin on your face, but requires other tools and products to protect it tip-top shape. To identify the latest and greatest personal care products for this year's Healthy Beauty Awards, a series of testers of all skin types (19459006) (19459008) analyzed some of the latest body launches by trusted brands such as CeraVe and Dove to vibrant newcomers like Esker and Go To Skincare.
Our panel of experts on dermatology has made some recommendations for body products in general, including the avoidance of fragrances and the pursuit of products containing plasticizers such as ceramides and oils that help to repair the skin barrier. Each of our winning products takes these guidelines into account (though not all of these pieces of advice are for a tee and we have chosen which do not) and has been given gold stars by our two testers so we feel safe behind them. Here are our winners of the Healthy Beauty Award 2019 for body products, from shaving to deodorizing moisturizing to self-tanning.
