The 3 Best All-Over Body Moisturisers To Soothe Sore Winter Legs In A Flash
We all want beautiful, hydrated, blotch-free limbs like Karlie Kloss above – but unfortunately winter can really take its toll making our legs and arms look chaffed, red and irritated.
If your body looks like its been given a Chinese-burn all over, it’s time to switch the all-over moisturiser you’re currently using and pick up a product that’s filled with ingredients that will rehydrate and love your skin.
I’ve picked out the three very best body moisturisers that are designed to heal seriously sore skin. I’ve used all three myself and can vouch for how quickly they transform unhappy skin.
Slather on any of the below and you’ll be back on route to smooth skin worthy of a selfie in days!
Avène XeraCalm A.D Lipid Replenishing Balm
This rich body moisturiser by Avène is all kinds of wonderful. The French skincare brand has innovated yet again, not just with this new luxurious cream, but with the actual packaging as well.
I love that once you flip open the lid and press down on the tube a small amount of moisturiser will be released out of a second flat-lying internal nozzle. Not only does it make for an interesting clean design, but it’s way less messy.
Avène’s XeraCalm A.D Lipid Replenishing Balm is a thicker, waxier body moisturiser than most, but it’s perfect for dehydrated skin. It contains no preservatives, no parabens, no perfume and no alcohol – making it ideal for anyone with sensitive skin or conditions like eczema (that’s me!).
One of the key ingredients that makes this product so soothing is Avène’s thermal spring water which helps to calm down sore skin and reduce the appearance of redness. It also contains ‘cer-omega’, an ingredient that nourishes skin while restoring its hydrolipidic film – the skins natural protective barrier.

First Aid Beauty Body Moisturiser
This is a great light-weight, fast absorbing cream for sore, distressed skin.
First Aid Beauty’s Body Moisturiser contains FAB’s Antioxidant Booster – a hard working cocktail of liquorice root, white tea and feverfew. Together these ingredients combat free radicals. Free radicals are basically abnormal cells which have been mutated due to bad environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, poor diet and chemicals.
This silky moisturiser also contains dimethicone, shea butter and colloidal oatmeal to soothe and moisturise your skin for hours.

Lanolips Triple Buttermilk Body Balm For Very Dry Skin
This multi-award winning all-over moisturiser really is the bees knees. Poured into a beautiful matte tube with gold-foil text, this body balm will look very pretty on your bathroom vanity.
Lanolips Triple Buttermilk Body Balm For Very Dry Skin is proudly made in Australia (big ups from me!) and is cruelty free.
The naturally derived ingredients that make up this rich and buttery balm include a triple-dosage of Lanolips famous medicinal grade lanolin (the fatty oil found in sheep wool), vitamin E and milk extracts – all of which will hydrate your skin as well as leave a silky veil on your limbs to protect them from the harsh environment throughout the day.
