Dry skin can be caused due to loads of factors ranging from hot showers, winters or using soaps and shower gels that are stripping your skin of its moisture. To avoid the itching and rashes that come with dry skin, it is important to keep it moisturized. No matter what you use, the golden rule is to apply creams and lotions at night so that it keeps your skin moisturized and hydrated while you sleep. The following are some of the best body lotions for dry skin that worked wonders for me.
