Did you know that skin is the largest organ of the body? It sure is! One of its main functions is to protect us from microbes and harmful bacteria. It also helps regulate the body’s temperature and prevents loss of body fluids. Therefore, it’s important to take good care of it. Sometimes, you could damage the skin by using harsh soaps, taking hot showers, using the wrong skincare products and wearing abrasive clothing. These could irritate the skin in the long run and make it dry and flaky. When that happens, you have two choices - make an appointment with your dermatologist or invest in a good moisturiser. We suggest that you choose the latter. Here are 8 of the best moisturisers for dry skin. (You’re welcome!)

Once you invest in this lotion, we don’t think you’ll go back to using any other product. It’s a non-greasy formula that gets absorbed quickly into the skin and helps restore skin’s normal pH levels.
