6 supercharged body products to prep your skin for summer

Whether you’re making sunshine-filled vacation plans or prepping your skin for warmer weather at home, MALENA HARBERS shares the best skin-enhancing upgrades for your bodycare regimen


U Beauty The Sculpt Arm Compound

This targeted serum is beauty’s answer to shapewear for your arms. It pairs the same retinol-spiked, ingredient-encapsulating technology found in all of U Beauty’s formulas with added marine extracts, probiotics and ferments that, together, stimulate the same muscle signals that are activated during exercise. Apply it daily and you’ll visibly notice your skin tighten within minutes – and even better results long-term.

Lixirskin Universal Oil

The beauty of this silky oil is that it can be applied in and out of the shower. Smooth it over damp limbs before you hop out, then follow with a quick rinse for super-soft skin that doesn’t need an extra hydration hit. The added emulsifier in the formula means it washes off clean, and its blend of squalane, camellia and omega oils adds a subtle sheen, too. Also good: it doubles as a hydrating bath oil and pre-shampoo hair treatment.

Sisley Black Rose Beautifying Emulsion Hydrating Satin Body Veil

All the skin-plumping, radiance-boosting goodness of Sisley’s iconic Black Rose facial range can be found in this super-lightweight version for the body. The formula instantly disappears into skin, while still delivering serious moisturizing and toning benefits – ideal for balmy summer days. Expect the signature rose-imbued scent and a luxurious velvety texture that’s a pleasure to apply – and guarantees baby-soft skin.

Sunday Riley Charcoal Smoothie Jelly Body Scrub

Slicker than your average skin polisher, this scrub combines a cocktail of effective exfoliators and pore purgers (including salicylic acid and activated charcoal) with glow-giving hydrators (hello, coconut water and jojoba seed oil) to balance things out. There’s zinc, manuka and leaf oil to regulate oil production and perfect problem areas, but what sets it apart is its biodegradable wax formula, which acts as a more efficient (yet less abrasive) exfoliator than sugar granules and melts when massaged into skin. Add it to your shower routine twice a week for a total body detox.

Susanne Kaufmann Toning Body Serum and Restorative Toning Body Cream

This blend of potent cellulite-smoothing botanicals is everything you’d expect from the Alps-inspired beauty brand. Caffeine, tiger grass, and boldo – a tree native to South America – break down fat cells and rev up the lymphatic system, while additional plant actives tighten, firm and tone. The result is less puffiness and dimpling, even on hard-to-target areas like the tops of the knees. Thoroughly massage the serum into skin until it’s fully absorbed after dry body brushing, then apply the Restorative Toning Body Cream for supercharged results.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging Body Cream

Packed with her signature mix of hardworking antioxidants, including anti-inflammatory purslane, Dr. Barbara Sturm’s coveted body cream is the perfect antidote to sun-soaked days spent at the beach or navigating the city. Plant extracts like almond and elderberry blossom boost lost elasticity, then tighten and tone for a more even complexion, while mega-hydration comes from nutrient-rich plant oils and shea butter. You’ll be left with softer, plumped-up skin in minutes.
