Most of us do remember to use a more hydrating face cream and wash when the colder months come about, but many forget that the same logic also applies to body care. While leveling up from a lotion to a body butter is a simple enough progression, though, it’s also important to switch to a body wash that is properly nourishing so that your skin can focus on sponging up hydrating, caring ingredients in the shower itself, and not just when you slather yourself in cream before bed. Here are some of our favourite body-quenching washes to indulge with in the dead of winter:
Live Clean’s Vanilla and Oatmeal Body Wash ($8) is a no-brainer for most folks. Sweet, gentle vanilla combines with nurturing, anti-inflammatory oatmeal to not only soothe but deeply penetrate skin for maximal hydration. The addition of organic chamomile also makes this a great pre-bedtime body wash, while vitamin E ensures that your skin’s moisture barrier build with every lather.
