No matter what the time of year, dry skin happens. Lucky for you there are easy and oh-so delightful ways of dealing with it—hello, body oils!

If you’re ready to think outside the lotion bottle, you’ll be pleased to know that body oils have lots of benefits to offer your thirsty skin. For starters, oils are a more concentrated form of moisture than body lotions. They act as a moisture barrier against the elements protecting your skin from wind and cold temperatures. To get the most bang for your buck, apply them right after you towel off from your shower. Skin should still be slightly damp in order for them to penetrate even deeper.

Here are the best body oils and why we love them!
