Our Top Moisturising Body Lotions & Balms For Dry Winter Skin

As we are heading into winter, using rich and moisturising body lotions is essential to keep our skin smooth, soft and hydrated during the cooler months.

According to, Estee Lauder’s National Education Manager Rogers, our skin is exposed to extreme temperatures of cold weather and indoor heating during the winter months can cause the skin’s moisture levels to deplete and not just on the face, but body skin too. Which in turn leaves a dry, rough and sometimes uncomfortable texture to the skin. Rogers continues to say “it’s essential to include a body moisturiser as part of your daily ritual after showering”.

Leading Australian Dermatologist Dr Shyamalar explains, “Changes in humidity and temperature result in less moisture in the atmosphere. We also produce fewer ceramides, the glue in between our skin cells, thereby compromising our skin barrier”. Dr Shyamalar recommends taking shorter showers at tepid temperatures and that we pat dry and apply a good emollient moisturiser whilst the skin is slightly damp for optimal absorption.

To keep your winter body silky, smooth and soft, we’ve rounded up some of the most hydrating and moisturising body lotions and balms to tackle the dreaded dry winter skin;

endota spa organics Signature Blend hand & Body Lotion

This aromatic and all-organic hand and body lotion is infused with the relaxing essential oils synonymous with endota spa.
