Does your winter body care routine only involve slapping on body lotion on your arms and legs once a day? Well, apart from the fact doing this just once every day is not enough, simply using a body lotion isn’t enough to keep the skin on your body hydrated and moisturised throughout winter.
Just like how you swap your skincare products based on the season and your skin’s needs, it is important to do the same for your body. So bid adieu to that summer body lotion, and invest in one (or all) of the five ultra-nourishing and hydrating body care products mentioned below. It’s time to give your skin the much-needed TLC it deserves.
- 01. Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub
- 02. Love Beauty & Planet With Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Aroma Luscious Hydration Body Lotion
- 03. Vaseline Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream
- 04. Dove Supple Bounce Body Lotion
- 05. Vaseline Foot Cream
01. Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub
Your winter body care routine will always be incomplete without a body scrub like the Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub with Pomegranate Seeds and Shea Butter. The pomegranate seeds eliminate dead skin and deep cleanse the pores while shea butter keeps the skin moisturised. Additionally, scrubbing will also unclog the pores and allow your body lotion to penetrate deeper into your skin.
02. Love Beauty & Planet With Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Aroma Luscious Hydration Body Lotion
Since your skin tends to turn dry and itchy during the winter, it’s necessary to use body lotions packed with nourishing and hydrating ingredients. Our favourite has to be the Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil and Lavender Aroma Soothe and Serene Body Lotion. Packed with argan oil and lavender extracts, this divine body lotion will coat your skin in moisture while leaving behind a soothing, warm aroma.
03. Vaseline Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream
Hand creams and sanitisers are our new best friends in this post-pandemic era. The Vaseline Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream is our top pick as it comes enriched with glycerine and vitamin E that keeps your hand baby soft. It also contains anti-bacterial ingredients, which ensures your hands stay germ-free. To sum it up, this double-duty hand cream is a total must-have in your skincare arsenal.
04. Dove Supple Bounce Body Lotion
As you age, the skin on your body starts thinning and tends to get dry out quickly. And if not cared for right, it can start to develop premature signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagginess and pigmentation. It’s necessary to include a hydrating body lotion that works to moisturise and firm the skin. The Dove Supple Bounce Body Lotion is perfect for this job. The creamy formula deeply nourishes and improves skin elasticity to give you irresistibly soft and supple skin.
05. Vaseline Foot Cream
Your feet come in contact with so many elements during the day, and the drop in humidity levels in winter can cause your feet to crack. Hence, remember to apply a moisturising and repairing cream such as the Vaseline Derma Care Cracked Foot Repair Cream. The Barrier Repair complex delivers intense moisture to cracked and dry heels, making them soft and crack-free in just a few weeks.
