Dry winter months can safely be considered as a frenemy. While we do enjoy curling up in our blankets and sipping on hot chocolate, we also hate the cold air for wreaking havoc on the skin. If slathering on thick moisturisers and cutting down on hot showers isn’t giving you respite from dry, itchy winter skin, there’s only one more thing left to do — swap your body wash. Winter calls for moisturising body washes that will add back moisture to the skin to keep dryness at bay.

Scroll down to discover the top five moisturising body washes that are perfect for winter.

What’s more is that it contains no sulphate, no parabens and no dyes — basically anything that could potentially irritate sensitive skin!

Oils are the best way to add moisture back into dry, parched skin. Argan oil, also called liquid gold, is one of the best oils for your skin. It gets absorbed into the skin easily and locks in moisture for a long time. The Dove Shower Mousse with Argan Oil is infused with the natural, soothing properties of argan oil. It is a body-wash-cum-mousse that gently moisturises, cleanses and gives you soft and smooth skin. Plus, it rinses off completely and doesn’t leave behind a greasy residue.
