My Favorite Body Lotions - Absolutely Useful for Dry Skin
MARCH 28, 2020 - BEAUTY

I can't imagine a life without a body lotion, to be honest. Every time I feel that my skin dries, I immediately apply it. I've changed so many body lotions over the years, looking for the best one. For me, the best lotion for dry skin has to have a nice smell, but the smell shouldn't be too aromatic. It has to be creamy, not watery, and it should have long-lasting effects. Also, body cream for dry skin shouldn't be too pricey. Therefore, I really find it hard to find one body lotion and stick to it. I've heard that many of my friends say that they use the same products, like lotions and moisturizers for years now, so I've asked them what they use, did some research on those products, and made you a list of my favorite six tested and quality body lotions for dry skin! These brands are all very popular, and these products are launched in 2020, so they are the newest and the most advanced. Let's take a look, and at the end of this article, discuss these products and find out which ones would be perfect for you. I've tried to find some more affordable lotion options for this research because I know that many people can't afford a $200 body lotion.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

This cream is actually quite odorless, unfortunately, but it's tested by various dermatologists. It contains both ceramides and hyaluronic acid, which contribute to the repair of dry skin. Hyaluronic acid is a highly effective humectant, which means that it attracts and retains moisture in our skin. The texture of this cream is very rich and dense, and, most importantly, it immediately calms down the irritated skin. The best time for you to apply any body lotion or cream would be up to one minute after showering before your pores close.

Avène XeraCalm Lipid-Replenshing Cream

This one is for very dry skin that constantly cracks and splits. If you have skin this irritated, dermatologists recommend you to use this cream. It's full of ceramides, vitamins which can help to treat dry skin easily. And if you just love dense creams and lotions, this one's for you. Its texture is extremely rich, so it can cover all the irritated spots nicely. What makes XeraCalm cream better than the other ones for extremely dry skin? It doesn't have peeling agents, such as lactic or glycolic alpha hydroxy acids. Maybe not the best body lotion for dry skin in the world, but it's really good.

Eucerin Advanced Repair Dry Skin Lotion

My skin is so dry so I have used products made by Eucerin a lot and I'm more than satisfied. It's also recommended by dermatologists. If you don't like creams that are too thick but moisturize well, this lotion is definitely for you. It has a calming smell, too. However, it contains ceramides and hyaluronic acid, which I've mentioned before. That means that, although it's extremely good for preventing cracks, it shouldn't be used to treat them as well.

Aveeno Eczema Therapy Daily Moisturizing Cream for Sensitive Skin, Soothing Lotion With Colloidal Oatmeal

If you have problems with eczema, you should first consult with your doctor before putting anything on your skin. However, this cream is vastly recommended by both dermatologists and the people that have the problem of eczema. It's odorless, it calms inflammation, and it has glycerin in it. Oatmeal is well-known as a good ingredient when it comes to sensitive skin, cracks, and inflammation. If you have severely dry skin, this product is definitely for you.

Jergens Ultra Healing Dry Skin Moisturizer

If you're really on a budget and want something that really works, try this body lotion. Dermatologists claim that hydrating skin on a daily basis is very important, so make sure you always have this kind of everyday product. This moisturizer isn't for severely dry skin, though. It's for moderately dry skin. Still, apply something like this every day after showering, so you can keep your skin happy and healthy. Just keep in mind that it's not as strong as other body lotions that I've mentioned earlier.

EltaMD Moisture Rich Body Crème

I have left something special for the end. This product has dimethicone, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, squalane oil, mango seed butter, and niacinamide in it. No wonder why it's so good for inflammation. Actually, it's made precisely for reducing inflammation. It's not really as cheap as the other products on this list, but it's definitely worth the price.

The Final Word

You should try these products listed above and see which one is the best body lotion for your dry skin. Remember, no skin is the same, and maybe something that works for someone won't work for you. Still, these products are tested by dermatologists, approved, and well-known. I've told you about some brands from this list whose products I regularly use, and I'm very satisfied. Apart from body lotions, you shouldn't expose your skin to the Sun so much, and you should treat it right. Having problematic skin is a real thing and some of these best body lotions for dry skin can really help. I hope that they will suit your needs.
