Ultra-Hydrating Body Lotions to Combat Winter Dryness

With the chilly season – and winter beauty woes – fast approaching, it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to stock up on heavy-duty body lotions to lock in ample moisture. Contrary to popular belief, seasonal transitions can have myriad effects on your skin and hair health. As you begin to feel the nip in the air, you’ll notice parched patches on the skin, coupled with redness, itchiness, flakiness, and overall irritation. Consider this your cue to bring out the moisturising lotions, creams, oils, and balms from the back of your boudoir.

The best way to keep dryness at bay is by slathering a generous layer of heavyweight lotion or moisturiser on all body surfaces. Look for formulations boasting ultra-hydrating ingredients such as shea butter, almond oil, glycerine, and ceramides. Scroll through to find our carefully curated list of body lotions that won’t break the bank – all under INR 1,000!
