Pangea Organics Nigerian Ginger Facial Cream ($36) For those seeking lighter hydration, this ginger-infused moisturizer calms irritated skin and creates a smoother surface for makeup application.

Lulah Tamarind Ginger Body Lotion ($13) Lightly moisturizes with a zippy, ginger-packed fragrance. Lime, tamarind, and cucumber add refreshment.

Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Bath & Shower ($30) A rich, luxurious body cleanser with a spicy, exotic scent, courtesy of ginger, cardamom, and macadamia nut oil.
