The 8 Best Body Moisturisers To Soothe Dry Skin This Winter
Supple, soft and heaven-sent.
Silky smooth limbs will never go out of style. But when it comes to the cooler months, it can take a little more work to maintain that supple, nourished and hydrated skin. The summer tan is long gone and the glow just doesn’t seem to occur as effortlessly as it once did. But body care is often neglected when temperatures drop because, well, who wants to spend extra time in a freezing cold bathroom slathering on countless lotions and potions to meet their needs?
Here, we roundup eight of our favourite do-it-all body lotions to keep your skin hydrated, nourished and glowing all year round.
