Nothing says summer like glowy moisturized skin peeking through miniskirts, crop tops and short shorts. Earlier this week, we spilled the tea with celebrity makeup artist Andrea Samuels on the best glowy products to take your skin to the next level. (We’ve already added the majority of these to our carts—they were THAT good.)

Today, we are taking things back a notch and starting with the basics. If you want summer-ready skin, you need a moisturized canvas. The best way to achieve this is with the most hydrating and moisturizing body washes you can get your hands on. Luckily, I happen to be a self appointed expert in scouting out the most nourishing body washes on the market right now. How, you may ask? Well, I grew up with dry skin so I’ve literally spent years finding the best moisturizing body washes out there. It was time that I shared them so we can all have kissably soft skin. 

These body washes are so unassuming you may have easily passed them in your local Target or drugstore without knowing of their moisturizing powers. Grab a pen and let’s get started! (The best part is they won’t break the bank.)

Nubian Heritage’s Goat’s Milk + Chai Body Wash is extremely moisturizing with a scent so intoxicating, it’ll fill your bathroom long after your shower. It has a creamy texture and cleanses with softening goat’s milk and shea butter. Easily one of my favorite body wash scents.
