Maybe it's a sign of the fast-paced times we're living in, or maybe it's a simple matter of convenience: Whatever the reason, sprays are quickly replacing lotions as the go-to vehicle for delivering skin care benefits to our bodies. But as is the case with most beauty products, body sprays aren't one size fits all. Some are moisturizing, some are acne-fighting, and some simply smell amazing, so the best body spray for you will depend on your unique, body-care goals and preferences in terms of consistency (i.e. lotion versus oil) and scent (or lack thereof).
Like all moisturizers, body oils and lotions in spray form are best applied right after showering, while your skin is still damp. I suggest applying your spray while you're still in the shower (once you've turned the water off, of course) — a hack that'll not only ensure you're getting the most out of your body spray, but will also prevent you from getting the product all over your walls and floors. If it's a sunscreen spray you're using, though, you'll want to apply that to dry skin outdoors.
