Byrdie / Sabrina JiangMuch like daily SPF is a must, so is a daily moisturizer—and we’re talking about more than just our faces. Moisturizers are essential for both rehydrating the skin and preventing future moisture loss, but we often neglect the rest of our body when it comes to our skincare routines. The result? Dry, thirsty skin that’s in need of some serious hydration. Factor in any underlying skin concerns or the season and climate (we’re looking at you, winter), and you have the perfect recipe for flaky, itchy, and uncomfortable skin—or even flared up eczema and dermatitis. Not fun. Especially dry skin deserves a little extra TLC, and that means traditional body lotions just won’t cut it. But fear not, with the right products, baby soft skin is totally attainable. We did the research for you and rounded up the very best body lotions, creams, and oils to combat and prevent dry skin for all skin types and concerns. Whether you lean towards the sensitive side or you’re fighting bumpy and rough texture, these miracle products will solve all your parched skin woes.Below, check out the best body lotions for dry skin.
