Body Lotions
Body lotions are typically less thick than creams and ointments, meaning that they are thinner, less sticky, contain less oil, and are more easily absorbed into your skin. Perfect for applying after a shower or bath, body lotion is a great way to keep your skin healthy year-round.

Hand Moisturizer
Your hands are often the first area of the body that dry out due to repeated hand washing, doing the dishes, etc. This is especially true during winter. As a result, the areas surrounding your knuckles might crack and bleed.

If you have chronically dry hands or trouble spots, opt for a nice hand cream. However, the severity of your dry hands may sometimes call for an ointment moisturizer, which contains more oil than cream and takes longer to absorb, giving it more time to soften dry skin and promote healing.

Body and Hand Moisturizer
Many lotions come as body-and-hand moisturizing combinations. These products are perfect for everyday use to soothe and smooth skin.

Foot Moisturizer
A lot of the population has dry, rough feet, especially those suffering from diabetes, eczema, or hypothyroidism, as these conditions sometimes leave people with painful, cracked feet. So, finding the right foot care moisturizer is essential. There are three popular foot moisturizer options to choose from:
  • Body lotion
  • Foot cream
  • Ointments
Lotions go on smoothly and absorb quickly. They are a good choice for dry, chapped, or flaky skin. Choose creams for moderate-to-severe dry skin. They are thicker and take longer to absorb. Ointments have a higher oil content and are a good option for severely dry skin.

Look for specialized foot moisturizers containing urea, glycerin, hyaluronic acid that draw in moisture. Other ingredients to consider include shea butter, dimethicone, petrolatum, and ceramide, as they help lock in moisture to maximize results.

Don't forget about dry, cracked heels. This is especially true for those with diabetes. Choose a targeted cream product rather than a general-purpose cream or lotion. Heel relief creams penetrate deep into the heels to soothe and soften. This is important for those with diabetes who may even experience painful cracked heels that bleed.

Skin Protectants
Some moisturizing products, such as petroleum- or lanolin-based choices, perform double duty as protectants. Skin protectants are like creams and lotions since they add much-needed moisture to dry skin. They also contain more oils than creams and lotions to lock in moisture. A lot of skin protectant products work well to relieve common skin irritations, including rashes and chafing. Many protectants are created especially for users with incontinence, as excess moisture can damage the perineal area. These products work by creating a protective barrier that shields the body from wetness and skin damage.

Finally, skin protectants are also often used to promote healing for minor cuts, abrasions, and other skin conditions. This is mainly because they take longer for your skin to absorb than creams and lotions and leave skin feeling softer and more supple.

Body Powders
Other ways of taking care of your skin involve using body powder to absorb excess moisture and perspiration. Body powder is ideal for reducing friction and chafing. Many users apply it between skin folds or in moist areas.
