When you’ve got naturally dry, dehydrated skin, it feels as though no amount of body lotions or moisturizers can stop the dryness. But let’s face it: not all body lotions are created equal. While some formulas are made to soften the top layers of your skin, the best body lotions for dry skin need to consist of powerful ingredients like Hyaluronic acid & Ceramides. 

Of course, Hyaluronic mainly helps restore hydration on every layer of the skin–not just the surface–while Ceramides is highly known for their ability to boost your skin barrier. Not to mention, body lotions that were made specially for dehydrated skin need to be able take on the harshest of conditions: subzero temperatures, overactive radiators, and genetics that refuse to make your complexion look dewy no matter how much glass of  water you chug per day. 

There are a wide variety of body lotions for dehydrated skin available at the beauty store for you to choose. But the question is: which made it to Beauty Insider’s top list? Scroll down to see. 


What Are The Benefits Of Using Body Lotion?

1. Hydrates Dry Skin

Our skin naturally dries up and this can be caused by reasons such as environment, weather, genetics and constant change in climates. The skin is our biggest organ which makes it the most vulnerable to being exposed to harming factors such as pollution, humidity, free radicals and chemicals.

By using a body lotion, this will help the skin replenish and retain water while protecting it as well. It will keep your skin hydrated long enough for you to apply once more before you go to sleep.

2. Smooths Out Rough Skin And Calluses

Long overdue dried skin often creates rough patches that can then either turn into calluses or promote hyperpigmentation. It is a natural body reaction to being dehydrated which shouldn’t be prolonged any longer. Body lotions can be useful at plumping the skin quickly to ease skin tightness and itchy calluses.

3. Can Be Relaxing

If you have never applied body lotion after a soothing bath then you’re in for an experience! Applying body lotion onto your skin can be a therapeutic process where your mind, body and soul is calm and focusing on the most important thing at the moment- you.

4. They Can Treat Certain Skin Concerns

Most lotions will contain main ingredients that target specific skin concerns such as stretch marks, dry patches and more. They use potent ingredients that have been proven to target and treat them and return once more your skin’s optimal state. It’s best to use a body lotion at night because our skin repairs as we sleep so you’ll wake up with smooth and soft skin.
