Dry and parched skin are common complaints at this time of the year. Here are some moisturisers that are essential for weathering the weather.

Nivea Creme: An old and trusted brand, it is best used as a night cream in winter. Use it after a face wash for soft and supple skin. It can also be applied on  dry areas such as elbows and knees.

Olay Moisturising lotion: One of the few lotions that works well for all skin types, Olay’s moisturising lotion is made of a very light formula and therefore does not feel heavy or sticky on the skin. It has a neutral fragrance and can be worn beneath your make-up as well.

Pond’s Dry Skin Cream: It is a moisturiser that is specifically designed for dry skin to provide deep hydration, making it perfect to use during cold weather months. 

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light : It is effective for all skin types including sensitive skin. It helps stimulate cell renewal to fortify the skin and reduce the its sensitivity while increasing the water retaining capacity. A little application of this moisturiser will keep you feeling refreshed and silky smooth while remaining free of sensations of tightness all day long.

Himalaya Nourishing Skin Cream:  A chemical-free skin cream, it contains herbal extracts like Aloe Vera, Winter Cherry, Indian Kino Tree extracts and Ashvagandha. It does not cause breakouts and the soothing scent lingers much after its application.

Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture Combination Skin: One of the very few moisturisers dedicated for combination skin, the texture of the lotion is light. It contains silica, which gives oily skin a matte effect and also protects it from UV-rays.

Garnier Skin Naturals Body Cocoon Lotion: This moisturiser should be used as a body cream. It can be applied on both oily and dry skin.

Vaseline Cocoa Glow Nourishing Lotion: This has a strong fragrance of chocolate and is best for dry skin. Composed of cocoa and Vitamin E, a slight application is enough to keep your skin hydrated.
