Hands up if your skincare shelf is bursting to the brim with too many lotions and potions to name, but when it comes to your body care, there’s just one solitary cream sitting all by itself? If you’ve got your hand in the air right now, then be prepared to clear some space in your beauty cabinet – fast.

The past year hasn’t just brought with it a global pandemic, but also the body care boom, as lifestyle changes prompted us to focus more on ‘beyond the face’ beauty and consumers finally started to show some love to the parts of their bodies previously overlooked. “As we start to look at the skin with more respect for its function as a whole, we see that body care has been largely neglected”, explains David Delport, Global Ambassador for REN Clean Skincare. “What we do on the face, we should do on the body. The connection through touch and application is also very important in this stressful world.”

And when it comes to a body care product that literally does it all, you can’t get much better than a serum. According to the NPD Group, body serum sales grew by 32 percent in the first quarter of 2020 and have continued to rise as more and more of us recognize the endless beauty benefits they offer. “Body serums are high impact but also lightweight, making them perfect to use alone or under your favorite body moisturizer”, Delport tells us. “It’s important to select one based on what you’re wanting to achieve, much like your favorite facial serum!”

Using one also couldn’t be easier, and they work amazingly when used under your go-to body lotion or cream. “Apply on cleansed skin, much like your facial serum, as they are designed to sink deeper into skin and carry important active ingredients”, Delport recommends. “You can then layer with a body oil and lastly a cream. It might seem excessive, but done twice a week, this layering ritual will transform skin on your body and create space for some much-needed personal time.”

So, whether you’re after an amazing anti-ager, a full-body firmer, or even a natural tan booster, shop the seven best Savoir Flair-approved body serums below. That lone body cream – and your skin – will thank you for it.
