4 Reasons to Swap Your Lotion for a Body Serum This Summer

They Wont Weigh You Down

Just like your cover-ups, your summer moisturizer should be light and airy. Instead of hydrating with heavy humectants or concentrated oils, body serums moisturize without suffocating the skin. Plus, they absorb quickly, so you can spend less time rubbing in product, and more time sipping on a fruity cocktail. Layer them under your regular SPF to keep your skin extra protected throughout the sunny season.

They Have Just the Right Amount of Shine

Just a few pumps of an oil-infused serum like this one from Sunday Riley will give your body that dewy finish you usually covet on your cheeks. After hopping out of the shower, smooth onto damp skin to get a subtle sheentoning ingredients like blackberry and watermelon seed oil will make your whole body instantly look brighter. Plus breathable oils absorb quickly and wont rub off on your favorite sundress.

Theyll Make You Look Even Better in a Bikini

No, were not talking flat abs or firm thighs. Body serums are packed with a blend of healing antioxidants that can help even out skin tone, firm sagginess, and prevent other annoying skin issues like discoloration that can cramp your two (and one) piece style. One Love Organics Body Serum contains pumpkin seed oil, a natural source of exfoliating salicylic acid to refine skin texture and omega 7s to increase elasticity.

Theyre Lazy Girl-Friendly

On summer days when youre feeling your most low maintenance, you can use your body serum from head to toe. Spritz One Loves formula into your hair to refresh beachy waves, or on your pulse points to replace your go-to fragrance: The Neroli scent will give you a boost of energy when the heats making you feel particularly lethargic, and Chamomile will help you (and your skin) chill out.
