Sometimes, we're so focused on our face, we tend to neglect our bodies. With winter in full swing, our skin tends to lose moisture and become more dry. To combat this, start by slathering on hydrating body lotion.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Aside from drinking 1 litre of water daily, your skin needs additional moisture. Start by skipping those super hot showers that are extremely tempting in the winters, but it does more harm than good. Super hot showers actually sap all the extra moisture from your skin, so stick to lukewarm water. Next up, swap your soap for a hydrating body wash that will give you soft skin in the shower itself.
