If your skin is turning scaly in this cold weather, try switching your body lotion for a body oil instead.
Body oil will prevent the moisture within your skin from evaporating, and protect the natural lipid barrier. (That’s the fatty layer that keeps your skin nourished.) Apply the same way you would a lotion, just leave a little more time for the oil to absorb. These are my top ten.
