The way winter creeps up on us is uncanny. You don't need more layers than a wool sweater under a denim jacket yet, but when you curl up in bed after a long day, you feel it. Not just metaphorically, as you crawl under the comforter and feel your quality of life improve instantly, but also when you shift your position and your chapped, scaly heels scrape against each other and catch you by surprise. That's when you know: Dry skin season is officially upon us.
When those sandpaper-y patches make their presence known (and they will), you're going to need something to rub all over them, and the rest of your body from the neck down, while you're at it. Fortunately, one trip to the drugstore with a tenner in your wallet is all you really need to solve all your issues.
Ahead, we've rounded up all the new heavy-duty body lotions to hit the drugstore shelves this season. So, the next time you're perusing the aisles of Target, you already know that unfamiliar jumbo Aveeno jar staring back at you will soothe those cracked heels before the next time you slide on your mules — no Googling in the middle of the aisle required.
