Winter skin saviours - keep your skin looking hot when it's cold

This freezing weather has made us all feel a bit like we need to stick our faces into a giant bowl of oil to stop them drying out. Harsh temperatures outside teamed with central heating and a generally more exciting intake of food around the winter months can make your skin dry out and flare up, so it's important to keep moisturising.

Neutrogena's Norwegian Formula range is a thicker cream than usual, and has been created to restore very dry or itchy skin - the lower legs in particular can become itchy during the drier months, so apply generously to avoid.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter is an all year-round winner, and soaks into the skin quickly leaving you soft and fresh all day. Johnson's have brought out an extra-rich body lotion to keep us all away from the flakes this winter - and the best news is these are ALL under a fiver. Huzzah.
