With Spring just around the corner (believe it or not), we’re seriously hoping that the Polar Vortex has finally reached its peak. But until all the snow has melted and temperatures are sitting way above zero, the fight between dry, harsh, and cold conditions continues. For ultimate protection, we’re loading up on all the moisturizing lotions, creams, balms, and oils.
To help you stay on top of skin inflammation, dryness, itchiness and, cracked skin, we’ve rounded up 14 of the best hydrating body treatments.

Best known for locking in moisture, this tried-and-true Ceramide-rich lotion instantly improves and strengthens the skin’s protective barrier and prevents dryness from occurring. Relieving itch and irritation, Eucerin’s Complete Repair lotion will leave skin feeling and looking good as new.
Formulated without the use of artificial fragrances, colour and petrolatum, Australian brand Lano gives us a hand cream made of 98% natural lanolin.
