5 Best Selling Moisturizers on Amazon for Extra Dry Skin

It is chilly winter in Bangalore (& rest of the country) Though I enjoy this season, I hate winter for just 2 reasons. Morning wakeup is a torture & my skin getting rough, extra dry & itchy. The winter’s dry weather makes my already dry skin worse.

I have extra dry skin issues, meaning I have to use skin moisturizers even during the hot summer season. I apply moisturizer to my full body, so I empty a 400 ml bottle in a week!

Below you can see my hand curated list of 5 best moisturizers you can buy on Amazon with massive winter discount. (price subject change, amazon associates links. This website is compensated for certain qualifying sales).

Taking Care of Extra Dry Skin in Winter

There is no dearth of skin care creams and lotions in the market. Name an ailment, and you will find hundreds of skin care creams, lotions and other products for it. As a result of ongoing research and due to ever increasing demand, the number of skin care products seems to be on the increase.

My favourite maynot be good for you!

Skin care lotions and skin care creams are the most popular forms in which these products are available, and there always seems to be a debate on which form is better?

Well, there is no definitive answer to this. It seems more like a matter of personal choice. You have try various creams to find out the best one for you. Even the best one gets bored after prolonged usage.

However, greasy creams are surely less popular as compared to the non-greasy (or less greasy) ones. Since the application of skin care creams is easier, they seem to be preferred (over lotions) in cases where the skin care product is not to be removed immediately after application.

So, skin care creams seem more popular as moisturisers than as cleansers or toners. For toners, lotions seem to be preferred over skin care creams.

There are some skin care creams that acts as toners too, but generally the toners are available in liquid form only. For cleansing, lotions and skin care creams are equally popular; however, the tilt seems more towards lotions.
