Body care products: How to care for the skin on your body

From moisturisers, to cleansers, suncare and hand creams, discover how to care for the skin on your body.

Body Cleansers

Cleansing is a really important step in your skincare routine – and not just on your face. Cleansing the body helps to remove impurities, body odour and dirt while helping to soothe and hydrate the skin. Lipikar Syndet AP is an ultra-gentle cleansing option for dry skin and is so gentle, it can be used by the whole family - including newborn babies and is also suitable for those with eczema. It immediately locks in moisture and protects the skin from the drying effects of water with a formula enriched with shea butter, glycerine, Niacinamide and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water.

Body Moisturisers

If you have dry and sensitive skin on your body, dermatologists recommend locking moisture into the skin with a hydrating lotion or cream. Lipikar Baume AP+M is a restoring triple-action moisturiser that helps rebalance the skin’s microbiome and reduces dry skin flare-ups. The formula enriched with ingredients such as niacinamide, 8% glycerine and 20% shea butter also help the skin to feel instantly soothed and hydrated for up to 48 hours.

If you prefer a fresher texture, Cicaplast Lavant B5 Gel is a soothing option for the whole family. Ideal for skin that’s damaged or irritated, it reinforces the barrier function with the formula enriched with 5% panthenol, metallic salts [Cu+Zn+Mn] and hydrating glycerine. Use it to cleanse your whole body including your face, scalp and intimate areas.


Protecting your skin from the sun is absolutely vital in maintaining its health and appearance, so your skincare routine should always contain a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Anthelios invisible Spray SPF30 is a great option for dry and sensitive skin types that are prone to sun intolerance and prickly heat. It’s also lightweight, fresh and moisturising so it won’t leave that dreaded greasy feeling on your body.

If you prefer the texture of a lotion, Anthelios Hydrating Body Lotion SPF30 is a light and velvety body milk for sun-sensitive skin. As with all sunscreens from the Anthelios range, it provides protection from UVA and UVB rays and will leave your skin feeling hydrated and comforted, rather than greasy.


The skin on your hands is one of the most delicate parts of the body, and it can easily become dry and damaged. The best way to protect and hydrate hardworking hands is with a soothing moisturiser such as Cicaplast Baume Hands that creates an invisible protective glove-like effect on the skin.

When you’re on the move, you should also keep your hands clean and protected with a hand gel such as La Roche-Posay’s Hydroalcoholic Purifying Hand Gel. It has a non-drying formula that’s suitable for dry skin types and contains 65% of ethanol to effectively remove impurities such has dirt, dust and pollution. Pop a bottle in your handbag so you’re never caught out.
