Top 5 Moisturisers for Dry Skin

Winter tends to take a toll on everyone’s skin making it dry & withered. And if neglected it can lead to flaking, hyperpigmentation, itching & cracking. In the long run it can also cause wrinkles and premature aging.

I’m always on the look out for the perfect formula that can fight dryness & keep the skin looking healthy even in bleak times. Here, I’ve rounded up few of my favourites in no particular order.

CeraVe Moisturising Cream

A heavy duty moisturiser with hyaluronic acid & ceramides that restore the skin’s natural barrier to protect from dryness & irritation, it does more than just moisturise. It is also recommended by dermatologists for extreme dryness & eczema.

Cozy Winters

It’s that time of the year when spirits are high but the temperature is constantly dipping.

Fortunately, we have it quite easy down here as the weather doesn’t get as chilly.

Nevertheless, here are a few essentials to get you through this season as snug as a bug in a rug.

Hot Water Bag

A hot water bag is indispensable during winter to keep aches and pains at bay.

Hot Water Bottle

We often forget to consume our daily requirement of water during winter, even though it is just as important as it is during summer to keep ourselves hydrated since we tend to get dehydrated by catching frequent colds. It would be worthwhile having a bottle of water near your desk to remind you to sip through out the day.
