We slather serum, moisturizer and oil on our face daily, but it’s a win if we remember to do a fraction of that for our body. The truth is, the skin on the other 97 percent us needs just as much hydration and nourishment, but typical body care products leave much to be desired. That is, aside from these 14 oils and serums that have changed our post-shower game forever. They’re made with just as much attention to detail as the rest of the products on our vanity, so we actually want to use them daily. Peep them below, then add to cart immediately.
