10 Best Moisturizing Lotions For The Upcoming Winter

Hi everyone,

Winter will be here soon and your skin will scream for some extra attention (read moisturization). Our body needs moisturization as much as our face does. Many women stay away from body butters as they are too heavy. Most of us also avoid body oil as they can be greasy and can make our dresses dirty. Body lotions are the best option for such cases, in the winter time. These lotions are super hydrating and you don’t need to reapply them often as they keep the skin soft for hours. If you are a busy bee, pick your favourite from the list before the winter creeps in.

10 Best Moisturizing Lotions For The Upcoming Winter

One amazing quality of this lotion is that it contains the microdroplets of Vaseline jelly that moisturises the skin intensely by penetrating deeply through different layers of the skin.

I would love to share a few tips here. I am not a fan of body oils as my skin feels sticky after I use it. Also, I am not a fan of the oily stain it leaves on the dresses. However, I love the moisture it provides. So I mix oil with lotion and apply it post-shower to keep my body hydrated day long. Also, you can apply the oil before shower and lotion after the shower to get maximum benefit without any greasiness. Also, whenever there is a party, I mix argan oil with the lotion to get a very sensual fragrance. You can also use an essential oil of your choice to get the relaxing feel. Do let me know if you liked the tips!
