As soon as the temperature rises, we do everything to protect our face from the harsh rays of the sun. From slathering sunscreen to using moisturisers and makeup products with sunscreen, summer is all about protecting the skin from harmful UV damage. But what about your body? Wearing sleeveless tops and shorts in summer makes the skin on your body equally susceptible to sun damage.

Most people believe using body lotions in summer is bad as it will make your skin greasy. That’s not true; your skin needs to be moisturised even during the summer season. Doing so will keep your skin soft, nourished and protect it from sun damage. However, make sure you use a lightweight body lotion to avoid that chip-chip feeling. Here are our top picks for best lightweight body lotions for summer.
