Winter is the best time of the year, IMHO. Christmas movies, hot chocolate and a slight nip in the air, could it get any better than this? However, one thing about winter that I could do without is dry and itchy skin. Even though it doesn’t get that cold here in Mumbai, any kind of weather change can affect your skin. That’s why it’s essential to keep updating your skincare routine according to the weather. Since winters can take a toll on your skin, you should opt for moisturisers that have intense hydrating capabilities. So if you’re on the prowl for moisturisers that will fix the issues caused by the cold and dry winter weather then have a look at our top five picks:
