As we all know, when the weather gets cooler, our skin is more prone to dryness. Harsh winds and bitter temperatures strip our skin of vital moisture and often leave it feeling tight, uncomfortable and sometimes sore.
Although many of us switch up our skincare routine as we move into winter, we often neglect the skin on our bodies. Despite often being covered and protected by numerous layers in the colder months, the skin on our arms and legs can still become very dry.
To ensure your skin is soft, supple and protected all year round, we have curated an edit of 8 of the best body oils to soothe and combat dry skin.
