Moisturising your body everyday can seem like a chore, but once winter’s bitterly cold temperatures hit us, it becomes a necessary everyday task. Central heating, chilly winds and a total lack of vitamin D can make skin flaky and scabrous rather than smooth, making luxurious formulas packed with nutritious ingredients all the more desirable.
From vogue classics such as Kiehl’s Crème de Corps to the decadent La Mer Reparative Body Lotion, choose your favourite from Blush‘s edit below and begin to apply now.
None of the body lotion is better than Crème de Corps really. This Kiehl’s cult classic is ultra-hydrating yet non-greasy, thanks to skin-loving ingredients such as avocado oil, shea butter,and squalane, and absorbs easily so you can get dressed ins after applying without it transferring onto your clothes.
