I’ve got pretty tough skin, literally, but I almost always invest in eczema body lotions come winter…and every other season, to be honest. Though I’m grateful I don’t have to deal with excess dryness and irritation, the ingredients in these formulas are sensitive enough for people who can’t use fragrance, alcohol, and other additives, but still pack a punch when it comes to hydration. (Personally, I love that these eczema-specific moisturizers don’t clash with my go-to perfumes.)
As with any skincare product, it takes some trial-and-error and more importantly, time, to find what works for you. So in the immortal words of Aaliyah: if at first you don’t succeed, you can dust (or wipe) it off and try again. However, be encouraged by the fact that all of these body lotions actually have a seal of approval from the National Eczema Association, so you can at least eliminate the safety guesswork. Whether your budget is in single-digit territory or big enough for a splurge, here are the skin savers that deserve space in your winter routine.
