2. Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand SalveWinter winds can take a serious toll on your poor hands. Slather on a thick layer of hand salve to protect them from weather conditions or apply before bed and layer them with gloves to allow for optimum moisture penetration. Wake up to soft hands and cuticles too! 

3. La Roche-Posay Lipikar Body MilkUltra-light and creamy milk textures will instantly sink into your skin for immediate comfort. Layer this on your body right after you get out of the shower so that the moisture can be locked in all day. Bye, bye dry skin! 

4. Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. RescueYou don’t have to suffer from chapped lips thanks the Dr. Rescue medicated care Baby Lips line! These little lippies pack a powerful punch with soothing eucalyptus, icy menthol and 12-hour hydration. 

5. The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Creamy Body WashTwo words — cocoa butter. Treat your skin to a creamy, moisture-rich body wash infused with hydrating ingredients like butters and soy oil to restore your skin’s natural moisture barrier.
