Dry, scaly skin can be kind of a nightmare in the winter. But, it doesn't have to be a reality. So what if the only thing touching our skin is the inside of the leggings we're wearing under our pants? We'd still like to avoid feeling like an alligator, thank you.
So, in the spirit of smoother, ultra-hydrated skin, we put together a list of our favorite hard-working body lotions, old and new. Be warned, though. Sometimes, the most effective products come in not-so-sexy packaging (sorry, Curél). For moisturizers, it's what's on the inside that counts — as opposed to our skin, which is clearly a topical issue.
Click through for the lotions that will go the distance until spring. And, let us know what you rely on when the temps get low and your skin gets angry.
