We’re deep into winter, which means your skin is probably feeling the drying effects of the cold. To help combat dry, flaky skin, we’ve rounded up our favorite heavy-duty body lotions and creams.
Moisturizing your face at night is a given. Whether you stick to a strict routine or switch it up depending on the season, it’s rare to go more than a day or two without following your morning and nightly routine. But moisturizing your body is totally different — at least if you’re anything like us.
We tend to slack on applying body cream simply because we forget to do it at night and always seem to be rushing around in the morning. But at this point in the winter, our skin has taken a serious hit. To rehydrate and moisturize, we’re adding one of these into our routine.
