Body Lotions

  • Once you get over the yummy scent, slick on Body Shop's Cranberry Body Butter ($12 US). It's a great moisturizer that leaves you smelling absolutely delicious.

Hand And Foot Creams

  • The Body Shop's Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment ($12 US) glides on and instantly sinks into your skin. It contains panthenol to strengthen your nails and shea butter to soften your cuticles.

How to Avoid Dry Skin

  • Drink at least eight glasses of water a day to keep your skin hydrated.
  • During the winter, take short showers instead of long baths, which can zap your skin of its natural moisture.
  • Try this simple trick for dry hands: before you go to bed, cover your hands with a rich, creamy lotion and then put on a pair of cotton gloves. Leave them on overnight - you'll wake up with super smooth hands!
