Best Body Lotions for Dry Skin – Top 7 Picks


Does your skin feel parched and dry after a bath? The soap and hot water tend to strip off the natural oils in the skin and make it dry and scaly. If you suffer from naturally dry skin, then you end up with white patches and peeling off skin. Exposure to wind and sunlight also dries the skin further. If you want skin that is soft and supple through the day, then the one thing you should not forget is to slather on a body lotion onto your skin, once after your bath and once before going to bed. Body lotions make up for the lost moisture in the skin. Using one soon after your bath helps seal in the moisture into the skin. Apply some generously in the night to repair your skin and replenish the moisture during your sleep. Take a look at our top 7 picks of the best body lotions for dry skin and pick one to get hydrated and smooth skin.
