Dry skin woes can exacerbate with weather extremities, which is why slathering on a moisturizer comes as a tranquil respite. If you wish to hydrate your rough, flaky skin and restore its plump state, look no further than a luxe body lotion.


"Moisturizer doesn't just add water back into your skin, it also traps in the water you already have to plump it up and protect it."

-says Mona Gohara, a board-certified dermatologist at Yale University.
