I love the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel @maheenkazim
Love the body shop’s vitamin e moisturizing cream! It’s sooo lightweight, absorbs well and doesn’t feel greasy like those other winter moisturizers @samrasal
Body butters by the body shop are lifesavers. Also nivea lotions are pretty good @bakhtawar0_0
Ordinary and No.7’s moisturizers are the BEST!! @mehaksulleman

Do It The Natural Way
Meet the natural wonders that are generating the most buzz, and are a perfect cure for dry skin. While you might be tempted to lather your body with lotion when dealing with dry skin, your best – and most natural – option is oil. Most of you highly recommended applying coconut oil to your skin which helps keep it hydrated and helps treat eczema — a skin condition characterized by scaly, itchy rashes. If your skin needs a boost of moisture, you can try using a yoghurt face mask, or aloe vera gel to rejuvenate your skin as well.
Bio oil @sanacashmiri_
Aloe vera @tahreem13
Coconut oil @vintagethoughts833
Egg yolk @irfanmadni
Coconut oil is one of the best moisturizer suitable for all skin types. You may apply it overnight or 15-20 minutes before bath or a small amount as a moisturizer.
You can even mix it with jojoba oil, add lavender oil if you are scent-conscious person @dikshakhosla
The best thing I use is mixture of glycerine and rose water @mehwishsheikh333
Use fresh malai/cream you will never have dry skin. It’s my experimented review. @_zOha_
Aloe vera along with some essential oil according to skin type…best ever moisturizer @annnnnnumm
