Home Beauty 5 great natural moisturizers for the body

16 comments Jul 03/13 Beauty, Skin care

I know that most people worry about moisturizing mostly during the dry winter months, but I find that being out in the sun and in chlorinated pools can also zap a lot of moisture out of the skin during this time of the year.

That’s why I am kind of a freak about moisturizing my body all year round. To me, it is very important to use products that are on the more natural side.

As you know, whatever we put on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. The body is kind of a large surface area, and I certainly wouldn’t want to cover myself in chemicals from head to toe!


5 natural moisturizers for the body from The Grass Skirt blog


Coconut oil

You all know that I love coconut oil.  It has so many incredible uses, and obviously, I use it as a moisturizer on my body.  I personally find that the scent isn’t too strong, but you’ll definitely smell a bit…tropical when you use it.

Avocado oil

This is probably the most nourishing oil that I’ve ever used.  When I am diligent about using it, my skin feels like silk.

100% Pure Nourishing Body Cream

This stuff feels so decadent and rich.  I’ve been using the vanilla bean for years, and it is definitely my favorite moisturizer of all-time.

Desert Essence Organics Hand & Body Lotion

This lotion is similar to the ones by 100% Pure, but it is about half of the price.  My personal favorite scent is the coconut.  It is perfect for the summer!

Pacifica Body Butter

I got the Tuscan Blood Orange scent in a beauty subscription box a few months ago, and it was love at first use.  You can find this brand at Target which is extremely convenient.


What is your favorite moisturizer to use on your body?


Have a wonderful day!

  5. I’ve actually used avocado oil and coconut oil on my skin and hair. They really do wonders. I’m going to try the other two as well. Thank you for sharing. :D

    • I’ve been using the oil cleansing method on my face (which I will blog about soon) and find that the avocado oil is so incredibly moisturizing- which I definitely need!

  6. What a great post! Thank you so much for sharing.

  7. Great post! I use coconut oil all the time when cooking, but have never used it for body lotion. Definitely need to try this because I have been on the search for moisturizers. :) Thanks Erin1
