As the weather gets colder, it’s inevitable our skin will dry out more than it may do usually. However, like when we wrap up in additional layers of clothing to keep warm, wrapping our skin in an extra layer of protection can really help to keep it looking and feeling its best. 

To give your skin a little extra comfort this winter, why not try moisturising with one of these intensely hydrating, ultra-protecting body lotions and creams.

The Best Body Lotions For Dry Skin 


AMELIORATE Transforming Body Lotion Rose 

This transformative body moisturiser works to smooth the skin for a soft and supple finish, whilst also providing 24hr everyday hydration. AMELIORATE’s Rose Transforming Body Lotion is a blend of many hard-working, effective ingredients.  

Alpha Hydroxy Therapy combatroughness, while Lactic Acid helps to draw moisture into the skin while exfoliating and stimulating cell renewal at the same time. Sweet Almond Oil and the brand’s unique LaH6 Skin Hydration Complex nourish and condition the skin to prevent further dryness and ensure that your skin’s natural moisture barrier is reinforced. 

Or, if rose isn’t the fragrance for you, why not try AMELIORATE’s fragrance free Transforming Body Lotion.

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
