For Itchy Skin
Aveeno Relief Moisture Repair Cream
Aveeno bedbathandbeyond.com

An oat-based lotion is basically the equivalent of rubbing on anti-itch cream, but this new variety from Aveeno is also especially good at treating the dryness that causes the skin irritation in the first place. Slather it on skin post-shower or rub it on dry patches that are more exposed to harsh air.

For Irritated Skin
Cetaphil Restoring Lotion With Antioxidants
Cetaphil amazon.com

Niacinamide in this antioxidant-packed lotion increases collagen production and fades discoloration.

For After You Shave
Stubble Cream
Fur dermstore.com

Apply this body moisturizer in tandem with tea tree oil, an antimicrobial that helps heal—and prevent—ingrown and bumps caused by razor burn.

For Dry Skin
Vaseline Intensive Care Body Lotion
Vaseline walmart.com

This lavender-scented lotion moisturizes like a thick cream, thanks to a special blend of humectants that draw water into skin, but its lightweight texture absorbs quickly.

For Intense Skin Problems
Barrier+ Lipid-Boost Body Cream
Rob Canning
Skinfix sephora.com

For more intense skin issues than your typical dry skin (read: eczema, psoriasis, and the like), seek out an allergy-tested formula like Skinfix's. The lotion comes enriched with shea butter and triple oat complex to moisturize and halt itching, plus it's unscented for super reactive skin types.

For Long-Lasting Moisture
Lubriderm Daily Moisture
Lubriderm® bedbathandbeyond.com

For hydration to last you for days and days and days, invest in an affordable lotion like this one that moistens intensely parched skin for hours and doesn't leave grease spots on your sheets at night.

For After You Shower
Olay Rinse-Off Body Conditioner with Shea Butter
Olay walmart.com

After showering, apply this and rinse off. The skin-quenching formula restores moisture levels after they've been depleted by hot water.

For Investing In
Supérieur Body Nightly Renewing Serum
Révive nordstrom.com

Yes, it's worth the price tag. The glycol and lactic acids in this serum help fade stretch marks and firm texture, while hyaluronic acid hydrates without leaving you oil-slicked. 

For Aging Skin
Mutha Body Butter
Mutha violetgrey.com

Wrap your body in this whipped concoction of butters, vitamins, and fatty acids that minimizes stretch marks and the look of crêpey skin.

For Long, Cold Winters
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
First Aid Beauty amazon.com

Though this intense hydration cream has the look of whipped cream, it's rich and dense on skin. From the added antioxidants to the healing eucalyptus oil, this giant (giant!) tub of repairing skin care will help restore your winter skin to its warm-weather glory.

For Dry Spots
Aesop Concentrate Body Balm
md formulations skinstore.com

For itchy, dry spots, pat on Aesop's aloe vera-enriched body balm that smells like an orange grove (though not in an overpowering way) and makes your skin feel cool to the touch after application.
