Dry, lizard skin can be kind of a nightmare, no matter what the weather condition. So, in the spirit of smoother, ultra-hydrated skin, we put together a list of our favourite hard-working body lotions, old and new. Be warned, though. Sometimes the most effective products come in not-so-sexy packaging (sorry, Physiogel). For moisturizers, it’s what on the side that counts — as opposed to our skin.
Healthy skin takes a certain amount of effort to achieve and maintain. The majority of us who work in offices or sleep in air-conditioned rooms at night, will find that the outer layer of our skin loses a lot of water over the course of day or night. Drinking water alone cannot compensate for our skin’s dehydration and the key to prevent that is to moisturize, moisturize, and moisturize! It may be an extra step to your skincare routine, but your skin will thank you in the long run. Read on for the lotions that will go the distance all year round:PHYSIOGEL Daily Moisture Therapy Lotion
