Your skin's needs change with the seasons. That doesn't just mean the skin on your face. It also applies to your body. Just like you retool your facial skin care routine, you need to rethink your body care regimen. Since winter calls for more hydration, it's important to work it into almost every step of your schedule. Fortunately, there are plenty of winter body washes to choose from.

What makes a body wash winter-appropriate?

A body wash fits the seasonal bill if it features top hydration helpers. We're talking everything from marula oil to shea butter. Your skin may also be a touch more sensitive this time of year. If that's the case, embrace formulas designed to calm and soothe. Usually, cleansers that tackle moisture loss also treat sensitivity.

How expensive are the best winter body washes?

The top tier vary. You can fork over as much as $36 or as little as just under $10. (Pay attention to size though because prices are often determined by the size of the container.) Sometimes added fancy fragrances hike up the bill. If you don't need a refreshing pick-me-up or your skin can't handle fragrance, favor unscented versions.

Ready for hydrated skin from head to toe? Then read on to uncover the most moisturizing winter body washes.
